Bucket List

I think it is so important for people to have goals that they are working towards, no matter how big or small they are. It could be acing a test next week or writing a book, anything! I notice that when I have something I am working towards, I am generally more happy and excited about life. Plus, you know that accomplished feeling when you cross something off of your daily to-do list (I am an obsessive list maker)? Imagine how good it feels to cross something off of your life BUCKET LIST! I encourage everyone to write down their dreams and start working towards them! Because really- what is life without dreams?!
