Do you have a bucket list?

I read a series recently (yay free kindle books), on a woman and her bucket list. Some of the things she did (try pole dancing, travel, learn yoga), I have always wanted to do. Some of the things she wanted to do I have done (skinny dipped (no idea why that is called that), tried to learn a foreign language), and some things I might never want to learn, like learn to dance the salsa. But this got me to thinking, maybe I should have a bucket list. There are certainly many things I still want to do, and try. I haven't sat down to ponder this too deeply yet, but I do think I want to learn yoga. What about you? What is, or what aught to be, on your bucket list?

Seeing a performance of the Lipizzana stallions in Vienna was on my bucket-list. I really don't care if I never do anything else.

There's a movie by that name starring Jack Nicholas and Morgan Freeman - I think those are the actors without looking them up. It's a really good movie and after watching it I set down a bucket list of my own. I don't have it anymore but I know the number one thing I want to do is visit Alaska, take the cruise, see the state. Even live there if possible.

@Jessicalynnt that would be great. you should read about the different styles online & see what you think you would enjoy most. there are a big variety in styles. some are very slow paced; others very fast; some give you an excellent workout (which i love); and some are more for the relaxation. once you figure out the style you think you would like, try to find a studio that offers the different ones. good luck with your bucket list!

Yes, I have a bucket list, no matter if I will ever be able to do any of the thing listed. I would like to visit Japan and learn some more foreign languages, but it's harder aging.

@Jessicalynnt I think I got confused with 50 things to do before you die. Hence why I used the numbers. Anyway, skinny dipping is definitely NOT on my list. My them snappers all around my bits. Too dangerous! I think I have done most things I wanted to try at least once. Anything else now is a bonus. I love watching SCD and wouldn't mind giving it a go, but only if I could dance with that foxy Kristina Rianhoff. Although I don't think my hips are up to it these days.

I never actually sat down and made a bucket list but I had a life long dream to live in a ski town and work at a ski resort. My dream is coming true in a small way as we are going to stay for a month in the mountains, buy a spring pass and ski every day! So, now I am trying to work as much as possible to make up for the month off and I am trying to get more fit so I am up for all that skiing.

@Jessicalynnt I think I am just going to be happy I did it and satisfied that it's close enough to what I dreamed of. Though my husband thinks we will notice the later sunrises and earlier sunsets in the mountains.

I have not made any list. I just plan year by year. Right now the priority is to save for retirement, save for stock investing, and save for an oversea trip at least once a year.

I used to have a bucket list. Now I just grab opportunities as they come. I try and learn a new skill or do something new for the first time every year. Other than extensive travel, I've done most of the things I once wanted to do. I never did get to swim with dolphins, but don't think I want to now. I have no regrets about things mot done.

A bucket list is a great way to keep the dreaming of dreams. Never give up on your hopes and desires of doing, seeing or visiting. Yoga is a great stress reliever and you can download the basic stretches off the internet. I have a bucket list - and as it empties, I fill it up with new dreams to suite my age. I play bowls now - that was one - and I love it

My bucket list isn't too crazy because I've done a lot of things already in my life. I guess my biggest thing would be to go to Disney World. I've been to Disneyland several times but I haven't been to Disney World yet.

I don't have a bucket list since I feel it creates only a limiting experience. Our wishes change everyday as we come across something new. If we have the courage and resources, a bucket list will only limit our curiosity. There are two possibilities - One we might only try to fulfill whats there on the list before thinking about anything new. Two, not achieving the list for a long time could be a very frustrating experience.
