What's on Your Bucket List?

I saw a movie a few years ago, called, The Bucket List. It was about two older men who had terminal illnesses, and decided to do the things they wanted to do before they died, or "kicked the bucket".  It was a great, fun movie. I have a list of things I'd like to do in my life time (my life goals/dreams) and I often look at this list and see where I am at.  My list changes every year or two, so I have to review it and update it. Do you have a "bucket list"?  I'll share mine here in hopes of giving you some ideas if you haven't done one yet:

Life is short and you have to enjoy every day. Focus on the positive and count your blessings.  Achieving your own goals and dreams can help you feel happier. Have a happy day!
