Reverse bucket list.

I have been feeling pretty uninspired as of late. Maybe it’s an early life crisis.  Recently I have worked towards furthering my education, but I realized I have hit many other milestones that I should be proud of.

I decided to write a reverse bucket list. Instead of what I still need to accomplish, I have decided to write a list of bucket list-like goals I have already achieved. It is time to be grateful for what I have!  Everyone should try this!

  1. Finish University with a Honors degree.
    I was diagnosed with cancer during my second year, so two operations and several courses of radiation + doctors appointments made this goal seem unattainable at times. University also allowed me to compete on the IHSA equestrian team, which provided a sense of accomplishment and normalcy.




  2. Have an article published.
    And I got to write about horses!


    Photos and article!


  3. Zipline across North America.
    I have ziplinned in Quebec City, Barrie, and Napa Valley


    Sanoma Canopy Tours


  4. Horseback ride in most countries I have visited.
    Well the obvious is at home in Ontario, but I have also ridden GP horses in Pennsylvannia, rode on a beach in Spain, and galloped through a forest in Mexico.

  5. Place in a Hunter Derby.
    After a fall in the warm-up, I came 10th in a National Hunter Derby. Just the victory gallop with pros like Erynn Ballard was amazing. Last year I was Reserve Champion in a smaller, but still well attended derby.

  6. Skydive
    And love it enough to continue to pursue it.

  7. Rekindled my love of art
    I started drawing again and continue to improve every day. It is amazing to me that people actually want to commission portraits!

  8. Have the ability and opportunity to go back to school.
    It is the road I am headed on and I couldn’t be more grateful.


    More school anyone?


  9. Drive a horse carriage
    I have wanted to do this for almost as long as I have been riding. By utter fluke, I applied for a driving job that was willing to teach me! I did that while in University and still occassionally get to fill in at weddings or drive a hay wagon.


    Wedding time!

  1. What an impressive list! More importantly, you live in the moment which is a great lesson for all us. Good luck with the academia slog. It’s worth it in the end 🙂 All the best, Terry (nandagikendancanoe)
