Boots on, let’s kick goals towards a super bucket list

THERE was a super amount of tears this week as I, Supermum, said goodbye to my Superman.

Don't worry. It's not a case of gone forever.

He headed off on an epic journey overseas to tick off an item off the top of his bucket list, taking part in an ultramarathon.

I'll even be joining him in less than two weeks to help him celebrate at the end of his amazing adventure. Notice I said end.

No ultramarathon plans for me. No siree. Unless it involves movies or book reading marathons. If so, sign me up.

Still, it has got me thinking about my own bucket list.

I'm more than happy with my lot in life.

I have a great job, good health, wonderful friends, a beautiful family and am happily in love.

What else could I possibly want?

I'm not one to think of things I want to do one day. If I think I want to do them, I just do them.

I know other people are too busy fixing holes in their buckets to even start a list but my bucket is in great shape, so there are no excuses.

I found a website that keeps track of your goals. It is also a great way to get inspired by what others are doing.

Bucketlist.org already has 2,739,250 goals tracked and 175,692 members and a quick glance at the list of popular bucket list choices had me on a high.

Fall in love, visit Uluru, have a drink in a real Irish pub in Ireland, hold a koala and have a mud fight; all things I can already tick off as having achieved. What a great start!

But it did bring me to the question - what do I still want to do before I die?

One thing is visit Prince Edward Island in Canada and I am already in discussions on that plan with the best friend.

Going on an African safari is something else I can tick off my bucket list when I catch up with my Superman.

Then all that is left is writing that book.

No matter what you have on your bucket list, don't just dream about it.

Do it, plan it, live it, work towards it, no matter how big it seems.

Even an ultramarathon is only done by taking one step at a time.
