Bucket List

What is the purpose of my life? What makes my life worth living?

My Bucket list will forever be an (organized) work in progress as I am committed to continuous growth and expansion of my perspective to what challenges, inspires and supports me to be my best self everyday.

If it scares me, chances are, I have to do it.

“Because you are alive, everything is possible.” -Thich Nhat Hanh
