My Bucket List: 41 Things in my 41st Year

It's my birthday


Today is my 41st Birthday.


In the past few months, I have realized, is that the time of saying, I’m going to do “that thing” one day or “travel to that place” one day is over.

One day is NOW.

I am in the prime of my life!! The time for thinking what I’m going to do later is over. The time for doing and living is NOW.

So in keeping with that, I made a bucket list. For year 41.

This list includes things that have been on my to do list for years. Some of them since I was in my teens. Some are new ideas, some are just things I’ve been itching to do but for some reason thought I couldn’t..because I’m married with a kid. Some are just things that at 41, I should have done, but haven’t.

These things are happening this year.  I’ll be updating you when I do these things, just to keep myself accountable.

It’s year 41 folks..brace yourself.

As they say "Life begins at 40". This is so true! It is during this time that we ask ourselves, "What do I do now with my life?" By this time, one should be stable and have realized her purpose in life. You have a good bucket list, hope you will achieve them.

I love this. It got me thinking about sitting still long enough to really think of the things I want to do.

I used to have a subscription to Massage Envy and I would go monthly. It was so worth it.
