Bucket List thru the years

Thursday, May 18, 2017

A blogger I follow did a top ten review of her bucket list, comparing it from her younger years to today. today. I thought it would be interesting to see how mine would compare.

When I was in my 20's-40's, my bucket list was more career oriented. In my 20's, I wanted a career. In my 30's, I was getting prepared. In my 40's, I succeeded.  My bucket list was a little travel and dream oriented but also a somewhat generic.
  • Love & be loved
  • Raise good kids
  • Succeed in my career
  • Travel to a foreign country (other than Canada) but especially Australia
  • Visit a rain forest
  • Go to a grocery store and buy whatever I wanted/needed without thinking about cost
  • Stay in a luxury hotel, just once
  • Retire as a full-time RVers
  • Live in a log cabin after retirement
I have done all on that list but I've also ended up doing a lot of interesting things that were never on my bucket list, not even in my dreams!

I still have a few things on my list:

  • Hot air balloon ride
  • Visit Scotland (Australia is on the list but financially I know it's not going to happen)
  • See a play on Broadway
  • Visit Yosemite National Park

But all in all, my life has been pretty darn spectacular and my wishes are now fairly small. I hope to continue finding treasures and trinkets of surprise events in my remaining years.

How does your younger bucket list match with yours today? Still got things you want to do?

Ciao for now!


  1. What a great bucket list! Fun reading!

    1. I was truly amazed - a small town girl never had dreams like these. LOL!
