The Bucket List

From the Urban Dictionary...Bucket List: A list of things you want to do before you die. I believe the term comes from a Rob Reiner movie called "The Bucket List" in which 2 terminally ill men (played by Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson) go on a road trip to do the things they wanted to do before they died (kicked the bucket)...

After the turn my life has taken in the last few years, I have really sat back lately and started really examening my life.  Am I where I thought I would be?  What are my plans for the rest of my life?  Am I happy with where things are right now?  And the fact that the answers are No, IDK and No....that is a huge problem for me.  And time has come to make a change.  No boo hooing here....it's all about change and accomlishing something in my life other then having two beautiful boys. 

I was FB stalking the other day and came accross some photos on a family friends page.  They were sky diving and on his hand were the words Bucket List.  It really made me start thinking about things, my life, my direction I am going, where do I want to be 10 years from now.  And the answer became really clear to me...a Bucket List was the place to start. 

So far this is what I have.  I am sure I will add more to it but for now I think this is a good start.
