My Bucketlist

We are what we repeatedly do.  I am a firm believer in having a Bucketlist.  It’s not about doing crazy stuff for the sake of adrenaline.  It’s about living to your full potential every day.  It’s about being the best possible version of you. It’s about dreams, both great and small.  It is a mindset.  It is a way of life. Here is mine.
