What’s the Real Story Behind a Bucket List?
Last week I read a blog post called Wanderlust is More Than Just a Bucket List on The Wanderlusters that really struck a chord with me. It was about how the idea of a bucket list reaches far beyond the “things” on it.
How many times have I jotted something down or bookmarked it to visit someday? Probably a million. But, get this – sometimes I even visit them! 🙂 And as I add ticks the visited column, there is usually a story that surrounds that trip.
What often starts as just I’d like to see that, turns into something bigger and richer than I could have ever known at the time that I scribbled it down. That’s the beauty of a bucket list. As it turns out, it’s often less about the thing… as it is about the doing of the thing. It’s more about the unexpected sights along the way, the people you meet, the unplanned experiences you have while you’re seeking out the goal.
Do you keep a wish list of places to visit?
What do you use to keep track of everything – Paper & pen, app, map, something else?
