    Do you have a bucket list? Why or why not?

    Can you list some of the things on your list and why you made one? Or if you don't have one please tell me why not? More places like this photo are on mine.

    Like many others , my wish list is long.
    My family responsibilities first !
    Besides that  I want to travel to all the beautiful places , hills and rivers and so many other places with natural beauty.
    Taking pictures of natural beauty is my hobby and technology has made this so easy and exciting!
    Then I want to read and write as much as I can and publish few books.
    It will be great when people will read my work even when I have said goodbye to this World!

      Thank you, Chitrangada for the great comment. It seems we have a lot incommon. I do all these things and they are part of my list to improve and do more. I writing two books right now. I thought of having something to leave behind for others.

    Most of mine are travel related! Safari in the Serengeti, Great Wall of China, cruise to Antarctica, and visiting Auschwitz are some of the top ones. Sort of stemming from that I'd love to do some sort of travel blog/book specifically about international travel with kids (my daughter is 5 and I hope to start hauling her around on trips shortly).

    Career-wise, becoming a licensed psychologist.

    And in general, just watching my daughter grow up and fulfill her own dreams.

    Everyone has a "bucket list" whether it's formal or not.
    We all have things we want/hope to accomplish before we die.
    For some people it's getting married, having a family, traveling the world, or attempting to do something they were unable to do at an earlier time in their life due to circumstances.
    Having a "bucket list" can also give one a purpose or reason to go on. Not having something to "look forward to" can cause depression. Desire is a powerful motivator for enduring pain.
    Among the things on my list is owning a beachfront home and world travel. That entails accumulating an amount of wealth!

      Hi, Dashing. This is a well thought out answer. I never thought m y getting married would be considered a bucket list item. I never started a list till I got older. owning a lake house or one in Arizona is part of mine. Thank you for answering.

    Hopes and dreams for a better future is a common goal.  A bucket list may be no more than a dream. Without dreams we have very little to keep us sane.
    I want to travel more.
    I want to write something special to make a difference to the life of others.  And I'd like to find the energy to go enjoy the world around me, if only to visit family and friends.
    Coming upon my retirement years is going to be interesting.  My hopes are to be thrifty enough to afford a retirement so I can fulfill my bucket list.

      Hi, Diana. I know people who don't seem too. They are happy to be exactly where they are and will never leave their own province. I have dreams, but they aren't always the same as my bucket list. thats an interesting way to look at it. Travel is one.

    It is my understanding that a "bucket list" is filled with things that you want to do before you die. In that light, I don't have a bucket list.

    I don't believe in this concept. I am not compelled to do things just because I haven't yet done them. Doing new things is OK but there is no irresistible impulse that it must be done simply to check it off a list.

    Feel free to delete if I didn't answer your ?

      HI Brad, Thnk you for your answer. I wanted to know why or why not? There is no reaso n for me to delete. Does that mean you are content with e everyting you've done or haven't done? My bucket list is more than just checking off a list. Thank you

      Just to clarify my comment. I wasn't talking about your bucket list, and that is why I defined Bucket List. Success and failures that I have had are not for a bucket list, not for me anyway. I guess the concept of bucket list is too confining for me.
