A Day of Firsts

Bucket list: (noun) “A number of experiences or achievements that a person hopes to have or accomplish during their lifetime.”

If you don’t have one, I sincerely hope you create one!

Over the past two years, I’ve won my life back. I fought harder than I ever  had in conquering my own personal demons (namely PTSD & major depression) so that I could finally enjoy life. So I could, after two agonizing decades, see life through a more contented lens. If you haven’t quite made it to this point yet, I sincerely hope you do so. If I can, I believe this feat is possible for anyone.

Anyway, (to the point) after I came out of the darkness, I made it my mission to enjoy as much of this life as I possibly could. Which brings us to today……

One of the things that has been on my Bucket List for quite a while is going to a Before I Die Wall. 

If you aren’t familiar with the story behind them, you can read more about that here: http://beforeidie.cc/site/about/

Thanks, to the wonderful picturesque world of Instagram, I discovered there was a wall in Louisville (roughly an hour from where we live). So, today (after over a year of waiting!) my friend & I traveled there for a day of firsts.

First stop…..you guessed it! 🙂

Our before I dies

Our before I dies

In case you can’t read my crazy handwriting, my before I dies are as followed:

  1. Be a therapist (get my LCSW)
  2. Write a book
  3. Go to Europe
  4. Have babies (damn you, infertility!)
  5. Release a sky lantern
  6. Meet Mariska Hargitay (Judge me)
  7. Become a professional blogger

Next up, we ventered around some of East Market Street (which I hope to visit again!).

We ended our day with dinner at the Spaghetti Factory & OH.MY.GOODNESS was it yummy (& beautifully vintage!!)!!!!!!!!!

The food was absolutely amazing & we got a 3 course meal for under 20$ (a person)!

& now I leave you with an inspirational song & some quotes……………. 🙂
