Bucket List Ideas According to Hubbers

Updated on July 20, 2010

Dream On...Dreamers

Several months back I posted a question in one of the HubPages forums. The question was simple: What's on your bucket list? What things do you want to do before you die (AKA kick the bucket)? In return, I promised I would create a hub with their responses and compile a list of their dreams and how to achieve them. The answers I received varied from realistic, bizarre, to "throw away all the buckets." For the majority, fellow hubbers had much to say about their own personal bucket list. If you participated in the forum, whether you took it seriously or as a joke, you will likely be in this hub. I hope this list will inspire those involved in it, as well any casual readers who stumble upon it. If you haven't created a bucket list of your own, I recommend grabbing a pen and paper and starting one now. Writing your dreams down on paper can be the first step to actualizing them. In the end, you are the dreamers of the dream.

The Time Is Now

Are the wheels turning? Has your bucket list doubled in size? Same here. But don't be afraid. Instead, go after your dreams with passion. Whether it's something done relatively simply (skydiving) or something that takes much more effort (make a million dollars), get out there and start walking the path towards achieving your dreams. Today.
