This is my Perpetual Bucket List blog. My other blog here on wordpress is Grammar Wench.
I started this blog because my life has been at a complete standstill for the past few years and I felt it was time to take back control. I thought that maybe a Bucket List would be a good way to motivate myself toward doing things to make me feel alive again. But the more I thought it over the more the inherent flaws of a traditional bucket list became.
First, I can’t possibly afford all it would cost to travel the world visiting all the places I’d like to see.
Second, travel isn’t an accomplishment.
Third, what happens when/if I finally complete my list? Is it time to die?
That’s when it occurred to me that what I need is a Perpetual Bucket List. One where I can constantly be adding new things to do and fears to face. Aside from that I’ve always believed that life is in the details. It’s all about the little things which is why my list is mostly filled with what others might consider little things, many of them truly are, but others are not so little to me.
I try to hold myself accountable everyday using the simple knowledge that I’m going to have to sit in front of my computer screen and answer one simple question : “How have you LIVED today?” I keep my progress and list additions updated on here daily (as close to daily as possible).
So far, I have noticed a huge change in the way I view myself and the world around me. I’m becoming less afraid and more alive.
