Top Ten Things on Your Bucket List

If you follow my website, Amy Elizabeth Burns, you may have seen a post called Message in a Bottle. The idea for Message in a Bottle came from a book of writing prompts which I’ve had for a long time. It was the first prompt and, if you read the post, you’ll see why I couldn’t quite get past it. So, me… being OCD-Deluxe, couldn’t just skip ahead and do other prompts in the book. I had to do them in order or not at all. With the first one behind me now, I’m moving on to the second.

Name the Top Ten Things on Your Bucket List.

The problem with the second prompt is that I don’t have a Bucket List. But, this is a good opportunity to put some thought into it and come up with at least a working Bucket List, don’t you think?

While I’m thinking about what to put on this list, I’d love to know what’s on your Bucket List. Leave me a comment and if you can give me the Top Ten, I may have to broaden my horizons and steal a few of your brilliant ideas!

1. Finish stocking my dream woodworking shop with the machinery I need and learn how to build a small house from the ground up (mostly) all by myself.

2. Visit Washington State.

3. Learn to love myself.

4. Get back to my fighting weight and play sports again before I’m too old!

5. Spend as many days of my life as possible with Georgie the Springer Spaniel.

6. Learn how to stop worrying so much about what other people think.

7. I’d like to be loved by somebody who loved me best of all.

8. Have enough money so that I am independent and can be free to create without guilt or stress or always feeling like I’m beholden or that I must submit to others’ wishes because they’re more powerful than me or that I’m in an inferior position.

9. Write.

10. Find a way to forgive.

I don’t know. Perhaps this isn’t the most traditional of Bucket Lists but I’m not ever going to be the kind of person who wants to go parasailing in Maui. Don’t forget, let me know what is on your Bucket List.
