We all have our bucket list. Maybe it’s on paper, maybe it’s in our mind - but we all have that list…
That list of our hopes and dreams, of things we wish to do, learn, see, accomplish.
I don’t know about you, but many times mine feels like a brutal reminder of what I haven’t done… that I haven’t found the time, even though I know it’s available… that I’m scared to try out of fear of failure… or worse that I’ve failed to keep persisting when I tried without success.
Sometimes it seems easier to just erase some of the goals I set for myself. Pretend I’ve had a change of heart and that it’s no longer important for me. Maybe just give in, and say, “It is what it is,” and accept life as an unchangeable object.
Yet still, I keep my bucket list.
I keep my bucket list because I know, no matter how long it takes, or how scary it feels, these are deep dreams I have for myself.
Because I know that erasing this list is like giving up on myself.
Because I know that with a determined heart I can make anything happen.
And I know that this is the same for you.
I know that no matter how heavy it may weight on your mind, how much you’d like to just throw in the towel and just say, “It is what it is,” like I sometimes do, it is worth it to keep your bucket list.
We have to push through and keep our dreams alive. If we don’t who else will?
Pretty soon I’ll be checking off cross country trip from my bucket list. Follow along, I’ll be posting my adventures on Instagram @kathlynhart
