Category: Inspiring Bucket List Stories

With inspiring Bucket List stories, the goal is to share once-in-a-lifetime experiences, people accomplishing them, and hopefully inspire readers to go out and do them.
Many people often say they want to travel somewhere, accomplish some feat, or desire to improve themselves. However, they lack the motivation. So with these inspiring bucket list stories hopefully you fill find ways to relate to others who are living out their bucket lists.  Perhaps you will see that people just like you have found the reason to live the life they have always wanted to live and you can do it too!

Remember, “It is Better to Live One Day as a Lion, Than a Thousand Days as a Lamb!”

A Very Merry Blogiversary to Me! This month The Bucket List Project is celebrating its one year Blogiversary (is that a thing?) and at the same time, The Bucket List Project’s 50th Blog Post!

A Bucket List Dream: Riding in the Upper Deck of a Boeing 747

A Bucket List Dream: Riding in the Upper Deck of a Boeing 747

A Bucket List Dream: Riding in the Upper Deck of a Boeing 747 There are a lot of “Bucket List” things I’ve dreamed about doing but one of them that I never thought I’d actually be able to do was ride in the upper deck of a Boeing 747. It’s a dream I’ve had since I was a little kid but as I’ve gotten older and airlines increasingly started retiring them my hope for making it happen began to dwindle….

2017 Bucket List Hopes and Goals

2017 Bucket List Hopes and Goals

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…

My First Year in the Woods – A Bucket List Adventure

My First Year in the Woods – A Bucket List Adventure

My First Year in the Woods – A Bucket List Adventure There’s a passage from Hemingway that I’ve often told people if offered a choice I would live in for eternity…. “Now that the bad weather had come, we could leave Paris for a while for a place where this rain would be snow coming down through the pines and covering the road and the high hillsides and at an altitude where we would hear it creak as we walked…

My Ultimate Baseball Bucketlist

My Ultimate Baseball Bucketlist

I am the middle kid in my family.  When I was a kid I felt that my dad and I weren’t that close, but somehow we had a common interest, the awesome game of Baseball. My dad was a big baseball fan and frustrated baseball player. He grew up idolizing players like Sandy Koufax, Mickey Mantle and Joe Di Maggio. He tried his hardest to get into the big leagues, but somehow his father pushed him to go to the military instead….

The Second Bucket List

The Second Bucket List

September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. Wow. I can feel you losing interest. Ok, how’s this: I had a brilliant, sparkling, insanely talented, kind, magical friend and Ovarian cancer stole her from me. Don’t worry, you’re not alone, being more interested in a person than a disease. People do not like to hear about ovarian cancer. While she was sick, and after, I posted things on Facebook about her and her family, and pictures of the two of us….

EVERYBODY DIES BUT NOT EVERYBODY LIVES

EVERYBODY DIES BUT NOT EVERYBODY LIVES

“Many people die at twenty five and aren’t buried until they are seventy five.” ― Benjamin Franklin One of the biggest challenges I often have when pursuing my bucket list is finding others to participate in the events with me.  This challenge comes at me from multiple angles because everyone always seems to have something holding them back.  Perhaps it is fear, but that isn’t usually the objection they present to me.  When I ask for participants, cost or physical ability are given as…

Does music inspire you?

Does music inspire you?

“What would be your walk up to bat music?” This was the question posed to me and several others at a New Orleans Zephyrs minor league baseball game on a beautiful mid June night at the Shrine on Airline.  Most of the others came up with interesting or fun song titles but I suddenly went blank!  I sat there pondering this question for the rest of the game while critiquing the current batters choices as they came up to bat wondering why on…
