My Bucket List

~ What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.” – Zig Ziglar

Here is my bucket list. A list of all the things I want to achieve in a lifetime. It is based on my passions, my values, my aspirations, and my philosophy. I created this to serve as a road-map guiding me in my journey through life. This is a bucket list about living and happiness. This is my bucket list. A bucket list that I can say is genuinely me.
