A bucket list will give you things to look forward to and a reason to work hard at your job. It is great to make one if you are feeling down and not motivated. I created this bucket list to inspire you!
–Be a bridesmaid-
Celebrating love and being by your best friend’s or family member’s side at their wedding will be one of the best moments of your life that you will remember forever!
-Take mom on the vacation of her dreams-
We would not be here today without our mom, and what better way to give back to her for all she has done than taking her on a vacation of her dreams?
Best friends are like stars. You can’t always see them, but you know they’re always there. Plan a girl’s trip to see your best friends who might not live in the same state to catch up and make new memories!
-Go on your favorite road trip with your favorite people-
Life is meant for good friends and great adventures. Go on a trip of your lifetime down ROUTE 66 or anywhere near you! I wrote about an entire itinerary you can follow from Nevada to Colorado. You stop at Bryce Canyon, Antelope Canyon, Zion National Park, and the Grand Canyon along the way! Read the blog!
-Have a baby-
Having a child will take you back to all those parts of your childhood that you had hidden away. A child will give you life purpose and happiness. Happiness does not result from what we get from others; but from what we give to others.
-Live in your dream home-
To be honest, the most important part of creating your dream home is that it is filled with love and feels cozy!
–Kiss under the fireworks-
Outdoor drive-in movies are a fun experience that I highly recommend, especially with someone you love.
–Marry the love of your life–
Life is a game, and love is a prize. What a great feeling it is when you find the person that you know your meant to be with for the rest of your life.
-Go to a Spa-
A spa day is necessary to relax your body, calm your mind, and renew your spirit.
-Read a Book-
Reading travel themed books is a great way to get inspiration and prepare for your next trip! Read 4 best travel books to inspire you for your next trip!
-Light Scented Candles-
Scented candles instantly can put you in a better mood!
-Paint and Sip Class
How much fun does it sound to paint on a canvas whilst drinking wine at Muse Paint Bar? They offer classes all over the states. View the schedule.
There is nothing quite like sitting in a hot tub during the cold, winter months.
Relaxing in natural hot springs is a unique experience to be added to your bucket list.
-Keep a Journal for all 365 Days of the Year-
Journaling is good for your mental health. Read our reasons to start journaling.
-Have a box full of memories-
The best way to look back at precious moments in your life is to create a memory box. How do you make a memory box? Put old theatre or movie tickets, flight tickets, first pair of ballet shoes, souvenirs, birthday cards, certificates, and photos in a box! Pretty much anything that you have that is significant enough to put into a box.
-Make a Scrapbook-
A scrapbook is another way to reminisce on the highlights of your life. It is also a super fun, creative outlet.
Planting succulents in your home adds fresh oxygen to your environment.
-Make a Playlist-
A playlist is a great way to keep your favorite songs and music in one place! There are no limits on how many playlists you can make on Spotify.
-Learn How to Play an Instrument
Did you know? Learning an instrument is one of the best ways to keep your brain healthy. It engages every major part of the central nervous system.
-Start a new hobby-
Hobbies can bring us joy and allows us to learn a new skill. There are so many to select from. A hobby can be physical, like running, hiking, yoga, sports, dancing, or fitness related to creative oriented, like taking art classes, music lessons, painting, baking, cooking, or cerebral like reading.
-Learn a new language-
The best way to learn a new language is to watch tv in the language you want to learn or to take lessons from Duolingo.
-Alligator Airboat Tour-
American Alligators have one of the most powerful bites ever recorded of a living animal. I highly recommend going on an airboat tour across an Alligator Infested Swamp, as it is truly a unique experience. Learn more here!
