We all have a bucket list. Whether it is written down or in your head, we all have things we want to accomplish before we die. I think those things say a lot about who a person is or who they want to be. That being said here’s a peek into my bucket list.
Before I Die I Would Like To….
…Have my own personal library in my home
I love to read, so having my own personal library is one of my goals. I also hope to have kids that love to read. We will fill the library with books for kids and adults of all ages.
…Be more positive
I am a pessimist. All day, everyday I’m thinking negative thoughts. It’s depressing. I want to change that.
I want to wake up everyday regardless of what’s going on or the weather and think today is going to be a good day. I want to be able to lift others up and brighten their day. I want to teach my son to be positive too. I want to be happy and being positive is one step to that happiness.
…Take my mom on the vacation of her dreams
My mom has done and sacrificed sooooooo much for me. I want to be able to give back to her and thank her for everything. When I am able to I want to send her on her dream vacation where she can relax with no worries.
…Learn a new language
Learning a new language opens up so many doors. It’d be great to be able to give myself more opportunities. I also want to teach my son ( and any future kids) the language that I learn so that they also have more options when they grow up.
I actually started learning Spanish in high school and while I was in College I tried to teach myself Japanese. With both I like to think got pretty far. I’ve learned many words, phrases, cultural things and grammar rules. With both I got stuck when it came to conjugating verbs. That’s when I gave up.
Now I’m learning sign language. I haven’t gotten far yet but I’m taking my time and practicing daily. I hope that this will be the one I actually become fluent in. I like sign language, because I can teach it to my son while I learn myself. Whereas with other languages it’s best if your already fluent when trying to teach a baby.
…Help the homeless
This is a big one on my list. A few year ago while surfing through YouTube I randomly came across some videos. The first one was of a little girl making care packages to give to the homeless. In my mind I thought I’d love to do that. So I went from that video to another and another. I gathered lots of info on things to do to help the homeless.
My goal is to have care packages in my car so that when I come across a homeless person I can give that to them. Since this costs money I’m not able to do it right now, but as soon as I am able to I will.
…Follow my dreams
My main dream is to own my own daycare. I believe that those first few years in a person’s life are the most important. I want to create a place where children can grow and development in a way that will help them be successful later in life.
Also I’m believe that by following my dreams I will teach my son to follow his. Children learn by watching their patents. I want to be a great role model for my son.
I love myself and who I am, but I don’t necessarily feel pretty. I want to look in the mirror everyday and just feel pretty without having to convince myself that I am. I want that confidence that comes with feeling good about myself.
…Be someone’s role model
I want my accomplishments to be so great that people look up to me, that they aspire to do the things that I have done, and to help people the same ways I have.
…Improve my vocabulary
I’ve been told that I speak very well, but I know that I can do better. I also want my son to be a good speaker and children generally speak the same way as the adults that they are around. So if I want my son to have a good vocabulary I need one too.
…Be a good parent.
I want people to look at my kids and be able to tell from their actions that I’m a good parent.
