My Bucket List

Posted by
River Thames – London

I’ve always had a list of things I would love to do before I kick the bucket and hopefully it’s not soon, by God’s grace.

So here we go:

What I’ve accomplished so far:

  1. Learning a new language – Learnt French and Dutch and I can speak both fluently
  2. Starting a blog – I finally started my blog in October 2017 and I couldn’t be more proud of myself.
  3. Go on a proper vacation….not going on to Zambia, somewhere else….where I can just relax and soak up the sun – I went to Kenya twice and I loved it! Planning to go again
  4. Run a marathon – Not really a marathon but I’ve ran two half marathons.
  5. Visit the Victoria Falls – I visited the Victoria Falls with my son for the first time in 2012 and I was in awe of the greatness of God.
  6. Visit London – I always wanted to visit the UK since I saw mum’s old postcard of the river Thames when I was little and I finally visited in April 2012 but I didn’t go by the river Thames, so I am planning to visit again soon.

Places I would love to visit

  • Israel
  • Rome
  • The US
  • The Great Wall of China
  • Greece
  • Cape South
  • Barbados

Things I am still hoping to achieve

  • Start my own business – It is a dream of mine to own a beauty parlour someday
  • Achieve my idea weight and maintain it
  • Go on a safari……possibly, possibly go to Masai Mara – Planned to do that when I went to Kenya the second time but things didn’t work out as planned.
  • Go on a road trip – Would love to take a road trip with friends
  • Learn to drive – I’ve been putting it off for a while but I think it’s high I did
  • Go on a mission trip – I always enjoyed our mission trips that were organised by our former youth pastor of my home church in Zambia and I’ve really missed that, so I would love to go on mission trip again
  • Own a home
  • Own a business
  • Take swimming Lessons

    1. Yes French & Dutch because I decided to live in Belgium and I need both language to survive lol. Yeah, visiting Israel will definitely be a dream come true when I di


  3. Dee, you will accomplish the rest. I enjoy reading your posts. Always encouraging and inspiring. I must say, I am jealous. I am from Haiti and I cannot speak French :). My husband, on the other hand, speaks it like he is drinking water. You can achieve everything on your bucket list. I pray God will continue to place the right people in your life, and provide the right lessons to take, in order for you to push that door wide open. It will open, and when the door of opportunity opens up, you will walk through with such grace. You will be covered by His son’s blood. You will finish everything on that list.

  7. I love this post so much. First of all, I am so jealous of all you have accomplished! You seem incredibly intelligent and I’m sure you’ll be able to accomplish all on your bucket list!
    My list has changed since having kids so I know most are just dreams for me. Now, I just want to give them the best life and I’ll focus on myself maybe someday in the future.
