My Bucket List AND My NEW Bucket List

Inspired by ‘The Buried Life,’ here is my bucket list. There will be 2 lists; my Bucket List and the New Bucket List.

The Bucket List is the list I’ve thought about, added to, crossed things off. These are the things I want to do before I do.

The NEW Bucket List are the things I had no intention of doing, but said YES to and am so grateful I had the opportunity to do them.

Also, I plan my bucket list adventures in a specific manner each year. I choose 1 that I can complete in 1 day, 1 that will take me a couple months and 1 that will take me the whole year. The top 3 are the ones I’m working on right now.
