Bucket list: you probably know of the term from the 2007 movie with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman — two dying men determined to strike everything off of their lists before they die.
Have you ever thought of making a bucket list? The greatest part of a bucket list is perhaps the fact that you can write down all your wild and crazy dreams onto paper, without having to worry. It gives you a space to dream up experiences that you would like to have in your life, and maybe just give you a reminder if those experiences ever begin to become a reality.
The key to bucket lists is to not hold back. Write down the things that excite you, experiences you are curious about, places you would like to go, etc. If you are wondering where to start, here are five bucket list ideas that were recently trending from users on Pinterest to help you start your list.
