Before we die lets….
I am sure you have heard of a bucket list. A bucket list is a list of goals, dreams and aspirations that you want to accomplish before you die, or “kick the bucket”. The idea was made popular by the 2007 movie The Bucket List with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson.
Many people have developed individual lists but how about doing this as a couple?
Plan a date where you have a decent amount of time to talk. Bring a pad of paper and a pencil or two. Develop a bucket list as a couple using the tips below.
1. Brainstorm and write a list of things you would like to do together before you die. Start the page with “Before we die lets….” The objective at this point is to go for quantity and see how many ideas you can come up with together. Take this lightly and suspend any judgment or criticism until you have at least 100 ideas on your list.
2. Review your list together. Pick three to five of your individual favorites. Talk about them and what make them your favorites.
3. Look at your list again. If you had to whittle it down to the ten that you are most serious about, which ones would they be? Mark the ones you feel strongly about.
4. From your list choose one you both agree on as a priority and put it on the calendar. Make plans to make it happen.
These are just some starter ideas. If you are interested in pursuing this idea further check out Lara Krupicka’s post Bucket List Websites & Apps for some helpful resources.
Developing a bucket list together can help you dream big and communicate from your heart. It can be a tool to help you discover and design your dream marriage. Have fun with it and get inspired together.
