Bucket Lists?

Are bucket lists a good idea?

I’ve been debating to make one or not. I haven’t been well for a while and during the darker times been suicidal.  So is creating a bucket list a reason to live to accomplish the list or a morbid thought of death, and what then happens if i ever get to complete my list?

There are lots of things i would like to do or try and creating a bucket might help me to do this as people may see it and get in touch. It’d give me something to look forward to, something to build myself up for and would help get me out the flat. Since the breakdown I’ve started to realize that real life isn’t as scary as the thoughts in my head. I don’t know if that’s new found confidence or just a ‘What the hell to the risks.’

On searching the internet there are hundreds of thousands of bucket lists out there each person creating there own individual lists. Although somethings that would go on my list I’d doubt I’ll ever be given the opportunity to do and other things may seem simple and easy for some would be a challenge or a personal goal for me. I don’t have the best confidence ever in fact would rather hide away from things, but having a list that others can see and push me to complete or help me, people might even want to join in with some of the antics. So i guess Bucket lists aren’t a bad idea after all. I guess it’s a matter of perception. If only we could please everyone at the same time.  [whohit]Bucket-Lists[/whohit]

  1. Keep some hope for the future. I don’t make lists because I live every day as though it were my last, even though I hope it isn’t. Be proud of what you have accomplished today and don’t worry about tomorrow. It will take care of itself.

  2. A bucket list is a fantastic idea. I don’t have one written down, but I have a few things I keep on a shelf at the back of my mind and, when I feel I need a pick-me-up, dust one off and give it a shot.
    Not all of them go as planned. Some aren’t as Awesome as you’d hope. But to be able to go home and say to people “Yes. I Did That”, is a feeling that usually makes up for it.
    I’ve also found helping others with Their bucket lists can be a great source of ideas for your own, helps add longevity to your own, AND gets you to try things you may not have thought of.

  3. I like bucket lists. They give you a goal and when it’s completed…..it’s party time! Followed by a chance to create a new one, a bigger one. So start off small with your own personal goals, then go Global!!!!

  4. Try going on all the steam train tracks in the UK, a slow steady one, but something to plan, lol! xxxxx
