I got a gorgeous email recently from a wonderful friend chatting about a lunch she’d had with her little boy Xavier that day. They were talking about holidays, dreams, aspirations and very inspiringly, they decided to write Xavier’s bucket list.
Everything on it was thought up by him, here goes:
• Ride in a sea plane
• Be a doctor
• Be a photographer
• Be a dad
• Go to a restaurant on my own for peace and quiet
• Be a fireman
• Be able to read a list (I think he means this one)
• Make cup cakes on my own
• Go to a One Direction concert
• Go to a Bruno Mars concert
• Be a singer
• Be an artist
And since the first draft he’s also added going to Legoland.
He’s 4.5 and his bucket list will rival many of you who are reading this! C’mon – what’s stopping you? Want more inspiration than Xavier’s rad list above? Check out Ben’s adventures over at Red Rucksack or Candy Chang’s incredible Ted talk “Before I die”.
What’s life without dreams?
PS – since compiling his bucket list, Xavier’s Mum had a friend post on facebook within days that she had to give up her two One Direction tickets. Bucket list fate I say! Xavier will tick this off in October. And – I’m encouraging him to set up a photo blog right now, I know he took some great photos at a wedding we recently attended. Why not head here and leave him some love http://xaviersphoto.blogspot.com.au/
