My Bucket List...

Bucket Lists. They sound quite morbid when you first think about it but once you begin to think a little harder, you will see that creating a Bucket List will bring out the most imaginative, creative creature ever. One day at work, I was bored and daydreaming the “What if I had a Bucket List?” question. I started to imagine all of the different things I would love to do. I swear, this experience is empowering and you learn what you really want in life. This experience made me think that the only boundaries we have in life are the ones we create for ourselves…
