What is the "Bucket List Challenge"?
We all have dreams.
Some are about places we would like to go and things we would like to do when we get there, like “Kissing under the Eiffel Tower.” Other dreams are about accomplishments we would like to achieve. Some dream of hiking the Appalachian Trail or Mount Everest, some would enjoy running in the Boston Marathon, even biking in the Tour de France. Then there are people that would like to learn something like pottery throwing, or how to do woodworking, they may even want to take up gardening or start playing an instrument. Other dreams may be education based like earning a degree or mastering an achievement.
Dreams are endless, unique and inspiring; dreams create goals which help us achieve the things we want. Dreams give us purpose in life. That purpose is what drives us.
Many people call these dreams, goals and aspirations their bucket list. We all have them, whatever name you want to place on them. People that have faced substance use or abuse have them too and we should celebrate their lives by celebrating their bucket lists.
If you have lost a loved one, instead of dwelling on your loss, let’s refocus on their life. What did they like to do? What did they dream of doing? What was on their “BUCKET LIST.”
If you have been touched by addiction, your bucket list probably includes attaining sobriety. Making a written strategy of the things that you want to do, achieve and accomplish can help you keep focused. Start figuring out how you can begin checking things off of your bucket list.
Lastly, share. Share the happy moments. Share your accomplishments. Share your achievements. SHARE YOUR STORY.
