My Bucket List is Ever-Changing. Is yours?

10 things I've done that You may not have...

How many of us have a Bucket List growing stale in a lingerie drawer? Or worse, how many of us haven't even started one yet?

Crater HikeMy list is ever changing and ever growing, and I'm okay with that. I don't think I'll ever be half done because the half-way mark keeps shifing.

On a night like tonight, I want to take stock of some of the amazing things I've already done. After all, it's great to look ahead and say someday I'm going to skydive or walk the Great Wall of China. But tonight I'm taking a minute to savor the gratitude of what I've already done.

Take a look at my list. Have you done what I've done?

1. Hot air ballooned over the Rio Grande.

2. Body-surfed in Barbados, lost my bikini and put it back on before the guy I was with noticed.

3. Zip-lined through a rainforest in St. Lucia, hiked up an inactive volcano in St. Kitts and flew in a helicopter over an active one in Montserrat.

4. Flew in a different helicopter over Niagara Falls, a float plane over the Mississippi in Louisiana and sat in the cockpit of a private jet - while in the air.

5. Rode a bicycle built for 2 through Stanley Park in British Columbia - wearing a dress, high heels and a big, floppy straw hat. Best not to ask.

6. "Soaked" in cedar-mulch composting tub during a spa Cedar Enzyme Bathtreatment that made me feel more connected to the earth than ever before in my life.

7. Worked in a maximum security prison and escorted a woman home to see her family - she was serving a life sentence for murder.

8. Chased a bull moose while snowmobiling in Northern Ontario.

9. Sunbathed on a nude beach in St. Marten and Toronto *and* ran 9 km (more than 5 miles) without stopping.

10. Ate "Heavenly Hash" made by nuns who had taken a vow of silence in Alabama.

I have a bucket list. I am working my way to 500 and i am on 367. Wish me luck in finishing all of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sweet bucket list! I like the tandem bicycle ride through BC with a straw hat. Very ladylike!

I have a bucket list too! So far it has 158 goals on it, I am working my way to 1000. My favorites are 'Milk a Cow', 'Ride a Zipline' and 'Make a Coloring Book'. Good Luck!!

I still need to make my bucket list!! I have done some of the things that I most wanted to do though, but there is so very much more I want to see.

I worked on a cruise ship for 10 months! It was hard work+long hours, but the ports of call were worth it! Barcelona, Palma Mallorca, VillaFranche, Rome, Florence, Lisbon, Canary Islands, Grand Cayman, Belize...just to name a few. It would have taken me years to do all of these on my own. Plus I made wonderful friends from all over the world. It was a crazy, amazing experience!

i walked all the way up the effilel tower, made a wish in the trevi fountain, and swam in the med. at 7 am (sooo cold). still so much i want to do

I went on Safari in Kenya and it was amazing - (got engaged in a hot air balloon over the Masi Mari plains!!) and just got back from our honeymoon in France / Belgium. Next place on our list is Australia or Italy.

took a cruise down the nile walked around St. Petersberg saw where Mozart was born saved my dad's life - he was chocking and I did the heimlich on him! What do I want to do yet? Dog sledding in the Arctic Hike the Himelyas Hike Machu Pichu

Hmm, let's see., i've hiked Gros Morne in New Foundland and I ran a half marathon - and finished it! great idea about sharing the things we've done already. Life is about enjoying *every* moment!
