Focus on the JOY of LIVING while looking through these 50+ Bucket List Ideas below. Simply pick and choose the ideas that suit you and your interests best. Hopefully, a few of them will inspire you to keep adding to your personalized bucket list.

Welcome to my bucket list, which I started in 2014. It is a never-ending work in progress. I continuously update my bucket list much like myself.

It is my hope that you use these bucket list ideas and examples as inspiration to create your own cool and adventurous bucket list.

And then you take at least one step every day to complete the items on it. This bucket list has completely changed my life (for the better, of course!) and I wish the same for you.


Ask these questions before making your own bucket list:

#What if you were to die tomorrow? What would you wish you could do before you die?

#What would you do if you had unlimited time, money, and resources?

#What have you always wanted to do but have not done yet?

#Any countries, places or locations you want to visit?

#What are your biggest goals and dreams?

#What experiences do you want to have/feel?

#Are there any special moments you want to witness?

#What activities or skills do you want to learn or try out?

#What are the most important things you can ever do?

#What do you want to achieve in different areas: Social, Love, Family, Career, Finance, Health (Your weight, Fitness level), Spiritual?
