101 Things On My Bucket List

I have no intention of kicking the bucket any time soon, but being an ambitious person, I've always had a bucket list etched in to the back of my mind of all the things I hope to achieve before I die. 

My bucket list is made up of hundreds of goals that include the places I want to visit and the experiences I want to have, to the things I want to learn, and the personal accomplishments I want to make- and everything in between. I want to do it all! I know it's unlikely that I'll ever manage to achieve them all, especially now I have chronic illnesses and chronic pain that keep me house-bound and prevent me from living a normal life, but I still like to dream. I have to hope that one day I'll be able to achieve my dreams, or there's really nothing to keep fighting for.

Anyway, I thought it would be fun to share some of the goals on my bucket list with you today, so here we are. Don't worry, I won't list them all; I'll stop when I reach 101 or you'll be here reading them all 'til Christmas!
