Life Ticket

This is my Life Ticket, a list of hopes, dreams, and achievements.

Some people call it a bucket list, five year plan or an impossible list but mine is called a Life Ticket.

This is not a place simply to list things and tick them off.  Each and everything recorded is very personal to me.

My Life Ticket is there to keep me motivated and move me forward as I get older in life.  It is a signifier to help me grow and become the best person I can be. This is a list of things I want to do which can make a difference to others as well as to myself.  Some challenges on the list will be hard to complete, others incredibly scary (only in a good way, I don’t do scary scary), as I endeavour to keep pushing myself to experience new ideas, new people, and new places.

There are no time limits because, this list…is for life.

Renaissance Woman:

The most interesting part I’ve discovered on having a list like this is that having read other people’s challenges and ideas that they have things listed that are either near to me or I take for granted so there must be things on my list that must be easy or nearby to others.

Let’s share!  If I can help you with your bucket list let me know and in turn, if there is anything you spot on mine that you could support me on, then let’s connect.
