What is a Bucket List? – How to create a great one today

​What is my bucket list? You are essentially asking, what would I like to accomplish in a lifetime? This can consist of big goals, little goals, anything thing you want to accomplish really.. There’s no limit.

Today, like any other day at Sweet Humility, is special because in order for me to explain how to come up with ideas for your very own bucket list, I’ve decided to share some of mine with you. Upon request, I will post my full bucket list later on.

Understand that there is no wrong way to do your bucket list, that’s not the incentive I’m trying to give off here. This post is to give you some ideas and maybe help you think more abroad if you are having trouble.

If this applies to you, grab a snack, kick back, relax and ENJOY!

Traveling

Where do you want to go?

I don’t know too many people that don’t like traveling and seeing new places, and that’s totally fine if you’re one of them. but if you do enjoy it, traveling is always a good thing to have on your bucket list.

Going to different places, seeing beautiful things, meeting new people of certain cultures, I believe, helps one to appreciate life and its beauty A little bit more more.

If you like to travel you probably want to put a couple of places in the world that you would like to see down as a reminder, not that you’ll forget, just to liven up your bucket list a little.

There’s so many beautiful places in the world and personally, I would love to see them all if I could.

The top places that I have in mind would be, Bora Bora, Niagara Falls, Paris and Thailand.

Material things

what things could you be happy with owning? A beautiful house? what about, a yacht?!

lol OK I know those are really big achievements that require really big money. But its good to think outside the box with your bucket list. Doesn’t have to be that big, you could want to get your first apartment if you’re young, or maybe you saw a cool phone, or your dream car. The possibilities are endless.

I would love a new car (not sure what kind yet), and definitely own my own beautiful home one day.

Family/Friends

Are you a believer of the saying, “the best things in life are free”? What kind of relationships do you plan on having?

Maybe you’re one to want to find your prince Charming/ Cinderella, if you believe in fairy tales, or your soulmate in other words, if you don’t. You probably have plans on getting married one day and maybe starting a family too, so you can put that down. How many kids do you want to have and raise, do you want to adopt?

Are there relationships that you already have that you would like to make better in the future? That’s definitely a must have to put down, if you do.

Would you like to meet new people and create long-lasting friendships with them? you bet that’s bucket list worthy.

I could go on and on and but hopefully by now you get the picture about relationships. I personally believe a bucket list isn’t complete without a couple key points from this section, So brainstorm on!

I pray that my relationships with my family grow stronger each day, and that I find friends that are better than a girl can ask for!

Fears/ trials and tribulations

What would you like to overcome?

Do you like skydiving? No? Neither do I.

I’m not much of a fan of heights, but I might try it one day if my nerves let me. This would be one of my fears that I would have to overcome if I plan on trying skydiving.

This goes to show that I don’t want my fears to keep me from doing really awesome things in my lifetime. I don’t want to miss out on all life has to offer me because I’m scared to take the leap of faith.

I’m not telling you to do something you are terrified of if there is not one thing in your body telling you to do it. I’m only saying if you’re thinking about a challenge but you are too scared to do it, It’s definitely something to go on your bucket list.

A few of my fears would be skydiving, maybe a small tattoo ;P

Religion/ Spiritual

Do you have a religion/ spiritual goal?

Not everyone is religious, I know this, but if you are maybe there is a goal you would like to set for yourself, whether its converting to another denomination or faith, or building a better relationship[p with your creator. Definitely something to jot down on your bucket list.

I want my walk with God stronger.

Conclusion

And that’s all folks!

That’s all I have for you and hopefully you took some good tips away or maybe even created a bucket list while you were reading.

the brainstorming doesnt have to stop now, if you feel your bucketlist isn’t perfect you could always come back to it to revise it or add some things.

It’s completely up to you to decide how you want to create your list of things you want to do before you check out. The important thing is that you will be happy with the things listed and feel like you achieved everything you wanted to by that time.

Have any goals and aspirations on your bucket list you’d like to share? Comment down below, I’d love to hear about it! (:

Thank you for stopping by!

– In sweet humility.

  1. Very good article to help people who may not know where to begin! Even starting local and small with something you want like a new jacket can get people in the habit of focusing on things they want. As they accomplish small tasks, the bigger ones seem more doable! It is always good to review your lists from time to time as we all change our thinking and our desires change.

  2. I love your blog, and it’s theme! And your list is really inspiring.

    Setting goals is really important. Life on earth is short, like a vapor in the wind, and it’s too full of opportunity, and abundant beauty, to miss things or settle for less.

    I also really appreciate that you love God. I love Him too, and His creation, and walking with Him is just… an astounding joy.

    “Let your soul delight itself in abundance”. I can see that as a theme for your post. I hope you experience all of those things in life!

    1. Thank you so much Jordan that means alot. I’m glad you liked my post. Yea my bucket list is still being written but i totally agree! So many beautiful things to see and experience. 

      Thanks again for the kind words, its great motivation for me. ☺,
