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.
