Poem: A Bucket List Consists of Peace & Happiness

create your own happiness
love yourself first
go to bed early
get up early
wake up with a smile

drink water
treat your body like a temple
you are its god
worship yourself

be modest
treat others the way you want to be treated
give respect to get respect
give love to receive love
read. write. educate yourself.

be kind.
create a bucket list.
complete your bucket list -
before you kick the bucket

be happy alone
learn to live alone happily
be honest, yet tactful
be the person you needed when you were younger
understand that it's okay to not be okay

you are stronger than you realize
breathe deep
indulge yourself
find a healthy stress reliever
don't rely too heavily on any one person or thing

find balance
you're going to be okay -
because you already are


  1. Great post! Your list is a common-sense, no-nonsense list of priorities that we all should remember. I sometimes get distracted by the curve balls that life throws at me. But, you list seems like a helpful reminder of things that are important and positive.

    1. Thanks for the feedback! Happy to hear it's helpful. I try to "keep it simple, stupid," and break it down in a way that others can relate to it and apply the philosophies to their own lives.
