It’s that time again, time for reflecting and planning out my 2017 Bucket List Hopes and Goals!
I was home from India for barely a week when I started getting that same damn question, “So what’s next on the Bucket List Project?” It is a question that sometimes bothers me. I appreciate that people are excited for the next adventure (as am I), but sometimes I just want the chance to enjoy the items previously accomplished and tell that story before moving on to the next. Regardless, 2016 was a great year of amazing adventures, new experiences, and wonderful new friends. See all the Bucket List items I scratched off in 2016 by CLICKING HERE!
So what’s next on the Bucket List Project?
Trying to figure out what I want to do next can be a rather daunting task, especially since I am such a bucket-luster (is that just a dreamer of buckets?) that dreams of big adventures. Being that 2016 was filled with amazing travel and personal experiences, continuing that level of success can add to the difficulty.
But, for the past several weeks, I have been pondering what exactly my 2017 Bucket List Hopes and Goals are going to be. Some of the items came easy, as they are items I’ve had on my mind, while others popped up for various reasons. So, with the use of a modern technology (pen & paper) and a time tested strategy (the line graph), I believe I have come up with a great rough draft of my 2017 Bucket List Hopes and Goals.
Now I know that this technology is somewhat foreign to many, therefore I will post below what is written on my 2017 Bucket List Hopes and Goals graph for easier reading.Reading the 2017 Bucket List Project's Hopes & Goals. Have you seen this list yet? #bucketlist Click To Tweet
