My Unlimited Life – 100 Bucket List Ideas for Your Own Travel & Goals

It wasn’t long ago that I wondered to myself, are there things I want to do before I die? and could come up with only one. Around that time I was struggling in many ways; an abusive relationship, and the overwhelming darkness that is depression.

It was surprising to me, even then, how little I could see past my current circumstances – how even if I thought really hard, I couldn’t come up with things I wanted out of life, because I didn’t see these things as true possibilities. Almost like a barrier to the mind, I was stuck with the sense of, it’s never going to happen, I couldn’t even craft my wildest dreams, that is how far I was from myself.

It has taken a lot of growth, ups-and-downs, lessons I didn’t want (but life wanted me to have), for me to get where I am today. Even now, things are not perfect – nothing ever really is, but after years of struggling I have finally come to a place where I see past the barriers (most days).

Life to me, now, is anything and everything you want it to be.

In light of that, I decided to reevaluate that 1-item bucket list from so many years ago. This is my “unlimited life” – 100 things I would like to experience, eat, and in general, life goals I want to accomplish before I kick-the-bucket.

What would you do if the thought of money wasn’t a roadblock? If you didn’t care what people thought, or how long it would take you to get it?

My hope is that some of the items on my list may inspire you to create a list of your very own.
