Do YOU have a bucket list? You know, that list of things you want to get to “someday”? What’s holding you back? Take a second and really think about it. A few years ago, we thought life was great – we had jobs that kept us so busy we barely had time for friends and family, a beautiful home requiring so much expensive care and upkeep that we seldom could afford a vacation, and all of the toys that we didn’t have time to play with. We realized something big was missing. We weren’t really living life at all.
It took big wake-up calls of family health and personal issues for us to realize we needed to start living our “Bucket List”. Since 2007, we’ve been living our #1 item on the list – TRAVEL THE WORLD! We even started our blog What Boundaries Travel and wrote the book What Boundaries? Live Your Dream! to help inspire others to move out of their own comfort zone just a little – and the results are SO VERY worth it. We are living proof that it can be done!
I will admit, our first BUCKET LIST didn’t look exactly like this one, but the people at Bufferin® found a great way to bring our list to life! Here’s how you can create your own. Find a small pail or bucket like this one and some clothespins (yes, they do still make those!). On each clothespin, take a marker and write an item on it that you’ve always wanted to do. Don’t hold back! Learn a new language, take a cooking class, learn to SCUBA dive, plan a relaxing spa weekend away, take a cruise, see the Vatican, skydive, learn to knit, photograph an African safari – ANYTHING goes. Now put the bucket out where you can see it every day. If you can’t see it, you won’t remember it! Daily, as you walk by this bucket of your dreams, remind yourself that it’s time to take action. Plan it. Do it! And as you you do each one of your bucket list items, toss the pin in the bucket. One down! Next…
Are you ready to start YOUR Bucket List? We found a great place to help you get started and you might even win a little money to help you cross off those items. The “Bufferin® Bucket List” Facebook Sweepstakes. Not only can you win a bottle of Bufferin® to get you through any aches and pains from those amazing items on your list, but you can also win a $1,000 American Express gift card to get started on one of your dreams. The Bufferin® Bucket List Sweepstakes will run from February 18 to March 14, 20014 and there will be three (3) randomly selected entrants who share their bucket list items.
Once you’ve entered the contest, head on over to your nearest Walgreens or Walmart to pick up a bottle of Bufferin® because you can’t let life’s little aches and pains stop you from achieving your Bucket List goals, right?
The Traveling Pharmacist, Lisa Chavis follows Bufferin® on Facebook and recommends it because it is the only non-prescription, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that’s specially buffered to be gentler on your stomach. With Bufferin® you have the pain relieving power of aspirin combined with three different buffering agents working together to help ease pain and reduce fever all while neutralizing stomach acid that can cause stomach discomfort. Using Bufferin® as directed can help keep the pain away while you go on living life to the fullest!
One of the first things on our bucket list was to SCUBA dive all around the world. Talk about some achy joints and muscles! Just look at all that gear we had to haul around! After Cheryl’s knee surgery, she wasn’t sure how easy it was going to be – getting out and active again. Especially diving six days a week on our volunteer project in Mexico. She didn’t let minor aches and pains stop her though and you shouldn’t either!
Now it’s YOUR turn! Tell us what’s on your bucket list. A special place you’d like to go? An activity you’d like to do? Write them down and share them here – then let’s get to it! Let us know if we can help, whether it be a few encouraging words or maybe advice on what we’ve experienced.
And don’t forget to enter the Bufferin® Bucket List Sweepstakes for your chance to win a $1,000 AMEX gift card to get you started!
