100 Things I Want to Do Before I Die

I made my first bucket list 3 years ago when I used to daydream only of the things I wanted to do with my life. Unfortunately I couldn’t find it anymore so I made a new one to remind me and keep me focused about what I want to achieve in my life and to act on them. Seeing my bucket list no matter how impossible they are always gives me renewed enthusiasm and passion to look forward into the future and to live each day to the fullest.

A bucket list is a list of personal goals you want to achieve, dreams you want to fulfill and life-experiences you desire before you die”. Writing one is a journey in itself as it lets you go back to your childhood dreams, your passion and your heart’s desires. Why not make one for yourself? The beginning of achieving your goals is planting the seed of desire. And before I share my continuously evolving bucket list as I slowly tick them off one by one, I will leave you three of my favorite quotes about Dreams and Passion.

“It is never too late to be what you might have been.” – George Eliot

“What the mind can conceive, it can achieve.” Napoleon Hill

You got a dream, you gotta protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they wanna tell you , you can’t do it. If you want something, go get it, Period.” Will Smith (The Pursuit of Happyness)
