No one wants to die with regret, right? Yet, so many of us live in our comfort zones and only dream of doing things. This is a sad way to live. Get out a pen and paper and start your bucket list. I’ll help you with that and share 100 things to do before you die.

I turn 62 this year, and there are still so many things I want to do, and God willing, I’ll be able to get to some of those things. With that said, there are certain things I wish I had done when I was younger.

I wrote an article recently about my biggest regrets in life. You should take a couple of minutes to read it. It’s really good and has actually gone viral on Medium.

If you don’t have Medium, here is my website version of it.

What’s on your list of things to do before you die?

Obviously, you’re not going to do all 100 things, but can you add a few to your bucket list? Maybe you’ve already done quite a few of these things, or maybe there are some you simply aren’t interested in (no scary amusement park ride for this girl!).

And, of course, money plays a huge role. Do what you can with what you have, but don’t live with regrets. I know there are some things on this list that you can do.

Go do them!!!
