Top of My Bucket List
At first, I thought this was going to be easy. It’s my bucket list – the things I’d like to do before I die. But in reality, this was a tough one for me to come up with an answer. I actually discussed this with my hubby to find out what is on the top of HIS bucket list. What he said really got me thinking, because what he desires is not anything fancy, over the top, travel the world type of thing. That really got me to think about what do I find very important and value the most that I would like to do before I die.
I’m still not sure what is at the top of my list, I’ll be honest with you. I figured as I was typing, it would come to me. There are lots of places I want to see and do (kind of coincides with my lottery post,) but to be at the top of my list, this thing has to be special. Something that snowballs into the other to create that awesome list that I can look back on and say, “Yep, I did it all, and I’m happy.”
The more I think about it, in order for me to really do the things that I want to do on my own time requires time and money. So, in order for anything that I want to do to happen requires taking care of our finances. Let’s be honest, what I want to do requires money, enough money that will keep us secure and without any worry. Once we’ve taken care of our finances and are stable, I can focus on doing some traveling and photography.
I know this will happen, but what I want to really do is take my boys on a plane to Disney. It could be either Disneyland or Disney World; heck, it could be both, but my boys deserve this trip. With the exception of my oldest (and he was 5-6 months at the time), my kids haven’t been on an airplane. When I got back from my trip, the first thing they kept saying was how much they want to go on a plane. For me, that would be a great thing to happen for them because I know how happy they would be. In turn, that makes me happy.
But, this would be a different type of trip to Disney. A few months ago, I heard how a section of Disney was blocked off exclusively for some of our business partners during their trip. They received the red carpet treatment, no lines, no waiting, it was all fun. That’s the type of experience I want for my family, a few close friends and their families. There’s no way I’d do this all alone. There’s got to be about 3-4 other families to take part in this as well. And one day, they will get it.
It WILL happen in the very near future!!!
