The Bucket List

Aloha Mai,
Apparently there is a new movie out, and it's good.  I don't know from experience.  It's just what I've heard.  

Challenge: List ten things you want to do before you "Kick the Bucket"

I stumbled upon Frankie's Bucket List Challenge on the boards at Making Memories For You.   Even though there were only two days left before the challenge ended, I wanted to do this.  It has been a while since I reflected upon my life and took stock in where I am and what I want to do in the future. 

Here's my list:

Before I kick the bucket
1. Watch Kai grow into a wonderful human being
2. Work at my dream job in the scrapbook industry
3. Become a Kumu Hula & teach classes
4. Learn to ice skate
5. Move back to Hawai'i to live
6. Make people smile
7. Visit Aotearoa again
8. Write & scrap family history for Kai
9. Inspire people positively
10. Be a better person

As I was thinking up my list, one thing I noticed is that I am very happy with my life as it is now.  I do have a few biggies, like seeing Kai grow up to be a wonderful person, and I am still keeping my fingers crossed for the ultimate Dream Job in the Scrapbooking Industry (one that pays me for doing what I love LOL), and I would like to do my part to spread more Aloha in the world (making the world a better place).  

Most of the other things on my list I work at everyday, and some would be nice, like learning how to ice skate and visit Aotearoa again etc, but I will not be totally disappointed if they don't happen.  

I'm really glad I did this challenge and grateful that I have been so blessed.  If you haven't done your "bucket list" lately, I challenge you to do it.  You don't have to scrap it if you don't want to, just list them. You can post them here in the comments section if you like.  I'd love to support you in accomplishing your list!  

I have tons of pieces to show you, but they'll have to wait until the end of the week.  I have one more deadline to meet.  Until then...
a hui hou!

I just wanted to let you know that you inspire me positively. I've been "stalking" you for a year or so, but I just found your blog today. I'm such a big fan of your work! I think the things you do are perfection.
