An empowering BUCKET LIST FOR WOMEN to start living their life. It’s never to late to chase your dreams and fulfill that bucket-list of things you have always wanted to do. Focus on the joy, and seize the day! This bucket list is for every woman who is ready to LIVE HER LIFE on her OWN terms.
As my 30’s are dwindling down, I realized that I never finished my “Before 30 Bucket List.” Of course, now the thought of purposely jumping out of a plane and finding my way to Machu Picchu in Peru doesn’t sound as intriguing as it did a decade ago. It seems I’ve changed my mind yet again.
Naturally, my 30’s did change me. I have more responsibilities now! Without a doubt, my most important responsibility is being a Mother. My risk-taking demeanor has calmed down quite a bit. That being said, I am still very much a free-spirit with adventure running through my veins, it’s just skydiving in a different country is just not on my list anymore.
Carpe Diem! We have all heard the phrase, but do we ever really “seize the day”? Not hardly, because LIFE gets in the way. As I said, we have responsibilities. Many of us have kids, bills, jobs, and/or commitments, that keep our lives VERY busy. Our life gets lived in schedules, and we rarely get to accomplish the amazing plans on our Bucket List.
Let me tell you though, THE TIME IS NOW! We are not getting any younger. In actuality, I think the best time to fulfill a bucket list is in your 40’s.
We are WISER, we are more CONFIDENT, we still have STAMINA and we are more GRATEFUL. It’s time to live each day intentionally and fully. Let’s make our 40’s be the best years yet!
“We have two lives.
The second begins when we realize we have only ONE”
Grab a pen and paper and MAKE YOUR LIST ALREADY! It doesn’t matter how big or how small it is, if you want to do it, WRITE IT DOWN!
It can even be something you have already done, but you want to do it again. It may only be 10 things or it could be over 100, it doesn’t matter, you have a decade to fulfill it. Make THIS happen! Own your 40’s!
