Now more than ever, we need to find joy in what's most important to us. In a special intro to this mini-sode, Karen gets personal about a shocking, awful event that happened since the original recording date last summer. The mini-sode itself is light hearted and features an upbeat conversation between Karen and therapist Grace Lin, geared toward helping us all live life more fully in the pursuit of our dreams and values, both big and small. But we do want to note that in the first few minutes, there is mention of a death that occurred suddenly, so you may want to consider that in deciding whether to listen.
What is a Bucket List and Why Do I Need One?
Farewelling founder Karen Bussen asks licensed therapist Grace Lin why a bucket list is important, what it means, and how we should create one that combines big goals and daily dreams with our true values as people and members of a community. Should a couple have their own individual bucket lists? How often should we review our list? And how can we use bucket list thinking to be more connected to the people in our lives?
Karen shares details from her own bucket list (hint: Benicio del Toro!), then heads out to the streets of New York City to ask strangers about their lists. She even takes Grace Lin through a delightful lightning round of “Abso-bucket-lutely or No-bucket-way”...
Do you have a bucket list? Is it purely made up of places you want to visit, or does it have other elements--such as running a marathon or learning a new skill? Please tell us all about it on social media and use the hashtag #livingmybucket and tag us @myfarewelling. You may just inspire others!
