My Bucket List

Life is too short and many of us dream of all the things we would like to do, see, or experience in our lives but never actually do them. If we yearn for too long, our lives will pass us by with only what could have been. I’m putting my wishes out here to motivate myself to try many things outside my comfort zone and not regret anything in the future when I look back on my life. This is an evolving list as I encounter things I want to do in my life before I die. What’s on your list?
