Thinking Outside the Box: Creating a New Bucket List

The Kimberly Evering Commentaries

My persona Gal on the Go was born 20 years ago from a bucket list. I was thinking about how the concept of bucket lists have changed since then and decided that’s what I wanted to share with you…

Our yearning for adventure grows stronger as summertime unfolds, leading us to turn to bucket lists for inspiration and motivation. However, creating and pursuing a bucket list can be daunting. I encourage you to ditch the mindset that bucket lists are limited to physical activities and travel – and highlight their potential to encompass various experiences, including culinary delights and other unconventional pursuits.

Summer beckons us to explore, grow, and create lasting memories – offering a plethora of possibilities for fulfilling our dreams and aspirations. A bucket list is a gateway to embracing the season’s spirit and embarking on enriching adventures.

While societal pressures and social media often emphasize extreme physical feats and exotic destinations, it’s vital to remember that a bucket list should reflect your unique interests and desires. By breaking free from the fear of judgment, you can create a list that resonates with your true passions.

You have the power to tailor your lists to include less physically demanding pursuits like food experiences – exploring local farmers markets and indulging in wine tastings – offering an array of gastronomic adventures that connect you to diverse cultures and leave lasting memories.

There’s also the rediscovery of your local surroundings – allowing you to explore nearby parks, hiking trails, and hidden gems within your community. When I can’t travel, I love going to my local museums, historic sites, and attending art and music festivals on weekends! They provide a fresh perspective and strengthen my connection to my community.

In the allure of summertime, your bucket list becomes a roadmap to fulfillment, personal growth, and cherished memories. Expanding your horizons beyond physical activities and travel, embracing culinary adventures, local exploration, and unique experiences in which you can embark on a journey of self-discovery that truly reflects who you are and brings you joy.

To help you think differently and get started, here are five fun alternative names for a “Bucket List”:


  1. Dream Catalog

  2. Culinary Chronicles

  3. Must-Do Memoirs

  4. Epic Experiences

  5. Wanderlust Wishlist
