The Bucket List

Tuesday, January 13, 2015

A few of you have asked what's on my bucket list. This isn't the whole thing, but it's a few of the items that I keep at the front of my mind for right now to stay focused on my goals. I've also included a couple of the completed items, so you can see what I've already accomplished. Many of these involve travel, because that's one of my major passions.

See the Aurora Borealis
Spend a Christmas in Europe (Stockholm or Prague are first choices)
Write a novel
Travel through the lower 48 states by motor home, visiting all the Presidential homes, libraries, and museums along the way.
Own a waterfront home (DONE - purchased first one in Kentucky in 2006, then sold it in 2013 to buy new place in California)
Reach my goal weight and maintain it for 2 years (minimum, ultimate goal is to keep it for life)
Get legally married and file joint tax returns (DONE - after commitment ceremony in 2000 and annulled San Francisco wedding, we were able to get married on 8/11/13 for once and for all)
Be grateful every day for the rest of my life

I've already written about gratitude, and it has become one of my focus points. Living life gratefully is awesome. I highly recommend it.

Have a great Tuesday!

    Hey Steve,
    I love your list and yes you will reach your weight loss. Remember it not a race, we will reach it slowly, but surely. I need to write mine down; it’s all in my head. You have a few things that are on my list. You will enjoy Europe. I lived there for a few years. When you visit Prague, don’t forget to also go to Karlovy Vary, they are known for their spas. I forgot how far it was from Prague, it’s still in Czech Republic. Please don’t forget my autograph copy of your published novel, save me one. Lol So what kind of novel are you interested in writing? Drama, suspense? Well, I hope you get to do everything on your list and have fun doing them.
    Hugs!

    I would love to see Aurora Borealis, Also Prague. I was in Europe for Christmas in Germany. Travel to Turkey and several Greek islands last year. This year it is the inland water ways on the east coast. Charleston SC to Florida, Taking my mother who loves to travel. Off to Galveston TX next week then in Feb off to CA to visit my daughter, grandchildren, mother and brother. I live in Nebraska now but grew up in Lakeport CA and lived most of my life in Humboldt County CA. In November of this year I took one of my step daughters for 2 days in Sonoma and 2 days in SF. Love that city!
