Bucket List… Sort Of

I had such a hard time with this!! I have been wanting to make a bucket list for years, but I always let my chronic illness hold me back with the belief that I couldn’t accomplish the majority of what I would want to because of my health. While my health definitely does restrict many things for me I have realized in writing this list that I still could accomplish so many things I love even if it takes a little tweaking and planning to be sure that I am safe in situations such as traveling. So I broke it down into things I could do without traveling, traveling I want to do that would take planning and preparations, and things I would love to do but realistically can not. Doing it this way showed me that the restricted list was a lot smaller than I thought.
