I’ve always wanted to write a bucket list; for things I have never done or 40 things before 40. I know you have heard of them. But here’s the thing, stuff buy cialis when I start, sale writers block sets in. My fingers stop tapping on the keyboard. I can come up with; Effie Tower, French Laundry, and learn a new language. Then the well runs dry. Whatevs. Frustrated, I tuck it away for another day.
Until I came across a work in progress that inspired me. Thirty Things Before Thirty from my home-slice Joy. It’s a slightly different bucket list. It’s not so much a list about Sky Diving or Swimming with Sharks. It’s more about making yourself and others feel good. Really good. Think cloud nine. Would you care to join me, trust me, it’s good stuff.
