cherieladie, bucket list

Bucket list. As 2014 rolls along, i don’t intend to set any new resolutions for the year. I think my resolution is always the same, year on year – living life happy and to the fullest.

What it really means to me is, being out there enjoying whatever that I am doing, trying new things, doing the things that I love, being with the people I love, and simply, loving everything that’s in my life.

There are so many more things that I want to do/achieve in life, and I think i’m almost halfway through the journey, which is why I am going to try creating a bucket list instead. I’ll add on when I think of something new, and I’ll strike them off and put a date to it when I fulfill any of the items. I guess, it’s gonna be really cool to check back each year and see the items I add on or strike off.
