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! 🙂
In case you can’t read my crazy handwriting, my before I dies are as followed:
- Be a therapist (get my LCSW)
- Write a book
- Go to Europe
- Have babies (damn you, infertility!)
- Release a sky lantern
- Meet Mariska Hargitay (Judge me)
- 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……………. 🙂
