My Bucket List
Creating and setting out to achieve goals is one of the surest ways to ensure a lifestyle of success. Often times, opportunities and dreams you never expected present themselves because you were prepared. Many of the blessings that have occurred in my life were not planned or even a thought in my mind. Instead, while remaining focused on my ultimate destination, small adventures and challenges presented themselves that I had to accept and conquer.
What will define your life? Once you establish and create the list of things you want to accomplish in this lifetime, you can begin with the small steps that will get you there. Let go of fear, embrace love, and take that necessary step into the unknown. Don’t worry, it always works itself out in the end.
The underlying lesson here is to stop thinking and start doing. The universe takes care of the rest. You only live once and quality matters. What you do with that limited time is your choices.
