I've been updating and updating my bucket list for the longest time. I shall do it once more. Probably not the last time ... but I've simplified it a smidge. I took away the numbers so that I can update a bit easier ... because, I think, as I get older, my goals in life are gonna change. Most of these items on my bucket list are dreams. The ones that I've starred are the ones that are of real importance to me. (Notice they are all of my most recently updated items ... I told ya my goals are changing!) Beyond them, if I accomplish nothing else in this life, I am good to go. I've also taken away the items on my list that I've already completed ... no need to dwell in the past but look to the future ... and even better, the present! So here's to now ... 2016 ... and beyond!
