Making Bucket List Dreams a Reality

In the last year, I made 8 bucket list dreams come true for my readers. Skydiving, heliskiingheli-skiing, piloting a helicopter, driving a NASCAR, riding in a limo, enjoying a spa day, touring wine country, and attending a ballet were all items on the bucket lists of my readers. I found ways to sponsor them or offer their dreams for free. All they needed to do was show up and live a bucket list dream day. This year I hope to do the same for at least 5 more readers. It’s one of the greatest feelings in the world to be able to help others accomplish their dreams. It’s amazing how much what you can do for others actually does for you. 

I still remember contacting Ian from Iowa to tell him that he would be participating in a GASS Race Car Day, including driving laps in a NASCAR and hanging out in the pit with the crew. He thought he was part of a practical joke or he was on the show Punked. I smiled all week at the thought of making his NASCAR dreams come true. Then telling Brian of Alberta that he would be heli-skiing with Selkirk Tangiers while staying for the weekend at Revelstoke Mountain Resort was like telling someone they just won the lotto. Even though he’s a man, he yelped like a little girl with excitement.

If you could make someone’s bucket list dreams a reality, would you? Well, you can!Vote for MyBBB Click on this link and vote for me in the Biggest, Baddest Bucket List contest. By voting, you will be part of making all of my bucket list dreams come true. All you need to do is vote and vote and vote some more. It doesn’t cost anything. It doesn’t take much of your time and you will be making my bucket list dreams a reality. 

I am currently in 3rd place in My Destination’s Biggest, Baddest Bucket List! The prize: six months, six continents, ALL EXPENSES PAID, my choice of destinations, and $50,000 cash when I return. Does it get any better than that?

I’ve been working hard to maintain my status, gaining interviews with the Cape Breton Post and the Halifax Herald, but I still need your regular votes. I dropped two places this week, but if it was smooth sailing the entire time, it wouldn’t be as sweet when I win.

Cape Breton Post ArticleIf you’ve been following along for a while, you know my motto: the more unrealistic I am with my dreams and goals, the more I’m able to achieve. Who would have thought that I would have the opportunity to travel around the world this year? This is my chance.

For those of you that don’t know me as well, you can learn a little bit more about me here.

I recently added to my video to give a deeper look into my Fiji experience. Check it out here:

Vote, vote, and vote again and then share with your friends. Think about the difference one person can make. Imagine if you shared this with your friends and got five more people to vote. Then, they got five more people to vote. I’m a dreamer and I can envision 10,000 votes before the contest ends but to get there I need your help.

  4. I think you’re doing amazing things for people who want to achieve their goals but don’t think they have it in them or don’t know how/where to start. I love the Eleanor Roosevelt quote at the end. Amazing!

  9. I keep finding things and places to add to my bucket list. We just returned from Hawaii and I was fortunate to see the rare NeNe, dolphins (including a baby), whales, geckos, lots of tropical fish, walked on a volcano, and went to the highest mountain from the sea floor in the US. Loved it all. Thanks for your shares.
