Do you have a bucket list that includes things you would like to do one day? What if you took a few things from that list and set a goal to accomplish them before your next birthday, called it a Birthday Bucket List? Would that not make each year more interesting? I think so!
Since I am officially 27 today, I think it would be fun to share my Birthday Bucket List with you to give you a few ideas of what you could accomplish in one year! My list includes goals I’d like to achieve and adventurous things that I hope to achieve. The combination will for sure keep things interesting all year long!
However, the biggest benefit to creating a birthday bucket list is to bring more intention into your life. Without a purpose, what is the point in waking up each morning? Creating intention and a sense of purpose makes life much more exciting!

What does your list consist of? Will it be things you can accomplish quickly or will it be a long term task? Let me know below in the comments! Lastly, I want to let you with this thought:
Nothing can buy happiness; it is a mood. Choose your mood wisely, and do not take it for granted.
