The Reverse Bucket List.

This idea’s from Chimerikal (a great gal and a great blog! Check her out). Almost any blog you go to is going to have a bucket list, right? Everyone has things that they want to do in order to have their ideal life and feel like they’ve made their lives worth it. But the thing is, our lives already are worth it. What if we counted all the great things we have done, instead of everything we still want? After I wrote this list, I just felt fantastic…I’m still young and I’ve done so many things and had so many opportunities. So this is my reverse bucket list: the things I’ve already been lucky enough to experience.
