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!”

Why Volunteering Abroad Should Be On Your Bucket List

Why Volunteering Abroad Should Be On Your Bucket List

Why Volunteering Abroad Should Be On Your Bucket List With the age of technology bringing us more information about desired locations, must-do excursions, and global events, our bucket lists get longer and longer with no end in sight. Great, at least we know how to stay occupied while we’re here. But prepare to add just one more to your list, if it isn’t already there. And if it is, bump it up. Because a volunteer abroad program should definitely be…

My Anti-Bucket List: Things I don’t want to do before I die

My Anti-Bucket List: Things I don’t want to do before I die

One of the best “side effects” of The Bucket List Project is hearing all the different bucket list dreams people often share with me. To see their faces light up as they describe the adventures, travels, or projects they want to complete makes my heart happy. Occasionally people will share with me a bucket list item that makes even me think, “Really? You must be crazy! I would never want to do that.” Now don’t get me wrong, I would probably do anything…

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….
