Team TLC Bucket Lists

**Updated March 2019***

Some people call them bucket list. I choose to give it a different spin. Team TLC is calling ours an Adventure List! That’s right!

Last week (June 2013)  I gave a map book to Thomas and Lillian and told them to make a list of everywhere in the World they want to visit. Then I told them to make a list of everything they want to have, be or do.

I will continually add to it. You can see the original bucket lists post from June 2013 by going here.

This is a list of experiences I want to have, be or do. They are in absolutely no particular order. I simply write them down as inspired. Thomas and Lillian’s list follow my own.

I make this list with a sense of detachment. If I get to experience these items then WooooHooooo. If not, then I’m still a joyful and peaceful person. I may initially be bummed, yet, I know that ultimately my happiness comes from within.
