I’ve heard quiet a few people this year talk about having a bucket list and until the other day I just had a list of things I would like to do.  The more I think about these the more I realise this is my Bucket List.  Everyone’s bucket list will be different from the extreme to the bizarre to the simple, but that is what makes each of our bucket lists as individual as we are.  I’ve approached mine in a SMART way.  I’ve listed things that I want to do that are achievable, whether in a month, a year or ten years. Someone asked me, when I mentioned about my bucket list, how many am I looking to achieve.  I hope to get through all of them and even add more.  I’d like to think I’ll aim for two to four a year, but who knows what life will bring my way as I start to work through having new experience and adventures.
