Part Two of Does your Bucket List Reflect Your Life?

Wow! It's Wednesday again. I apologize for not posting this morning. No excuses.
Last week I talked about the first five items on my Bucket List. This week I'll list the last five.

One reader responded and said she's living her Bucket list. I think that's wonderful, and she's one lucky woman! I think we should all be living our Bucket Lists.

But if we aren't, there are probably things we'd like to experience, and I believe that's a good thing. We all need dreams in our lives. Dreams lead to goals. Goals are what provide incentive for those dreams to become reality.

Sixth on my list is to stretch my writing boundary this year. To widen that goal will take a ton of planning, but I have plenty of time and motivation. Motivation and broadening ideas are worth any amount of time I put into it.

Seventh, I'd like to incorporate  spending more time with family. We're so spread apart, but there again time goes back to planning. I kid my mom all the time about having to pack a lunch to visit with her. As long as I come packing Fried Chicken, Mom's a happy woman. Oh, hot peppers and onion must accompany the meal. Mom's going to be ninety next month. I hope I have the energy and get-up-and-go when I reach that age. If I'm lucky!

Eighth, I'd so like to catch a huge fish. I'm not kidding. Fishing with hubby and son over the years, has given me a love of the sport, one they have in their soul. I don't fish often, but it's a lot of fun, I even bait my own hook. :) Once I went deep sea fishing off the coast of South Carolina. Once was enough. I was so, so sick. 'Nuff said. I still want to catch the big one!

Ninth brings me to finding a way to stop procrastinating. Working hard on this one. I don't know about you, but there are so many priorities in a twenty-four hour period, I keep black-lining through most of them and never get to the bottom of the list. Think, I'll start at the bottom and add new tasks underneath. Beginning tomorrow, :), the new me begins. Hey, it's long past January, so I should be able to keep this one.

Tenth transports me to another great love. Painting.  A brush, paint, and canvas. In my imagination I can do anything. I have so much fascination with the canvas and can't wait to dip my brush in buttery paste. I want to paint until the sun rises.

  1. Cool list, Carol! I like the fishing goal. I can bait my own hook too and nothing like fresh caught fish. I think you're amazing and can't imagine you procrastinating. You do so much for your family and take such good care of them. I'm just glad you find time to keep writing.

  2. Thanks, J.D. I bet you're a great fisherwoman! Used to love waking up to hubby and son cleaning fish, then cooking it for breakfast. Family is important, I do what needs doing. :) Always time for writing, like you!

    Thanks for posting.
