5 Attainable Things To Check Off Your Bucket List Before 2016

by Alexis DiZenzo

It seems 2015 has been a memorable year.

The iPhone 6s was released, Microsoft introduced Windows 10, liquid water was found on Mars and "Fifty Shades of Grey" was finally released.

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick split (tears). Justin Bieber took the world by storm and we all caught Bieber fever again, but let's not go there right now.

As the year comes to a close, we take time to reflex on the good and the bad that has occurred this year.

Maybe you've done some things you aren't proud of, maybe you did too little or too much with your time.

There is still a month left of 2015, and this is the perfect time to create your ultimate end of the year bucket list.

Now is the time to get crazy, be spontaneous and do everything that you were supposed to do this year.

Who knows the world might still end right?

Your ultimate end-of-year bucket list starts here:

1. Volunteer for the less fortunate.

This needs to be done.

You don't know what an impact you can make in a person's life by doing the smallest things.

Volunteering at a soup kitchen, or visiting sick children in a hospital not only will have a huge impact on their lives, but on yours as well.

The way you will feel about yourself is so worth it after this experience.

We also are in the season of giving, so now is a perfect time to volunteer and make an impact in someone's life.

You'll be happy you did.

2. Take a spontaneous day trip, all by yourself.

Get in the car, on the train, even the city bus and just go somewhere for the day where you can relax and reflex on all your accomplishments this year.

You deserve that.

Go to a vineyard and just enjoy the scenery.

Take a trip to a day spa, or go on a retreat.

3. Spend more time with your family, and loved ones.

If I personally have learned anything this year, it's that family is forever.

They will always be there for you no matter what.

The truth of the matter, though, is that they may always be with you forever in spirit, but that does not mean they will live forever.

It is so important to spend all the waking time you have with your family and the ones you love.

As scary as it is, you don't know what next year is going to bring, so enjoy your time now.

4. Send a card or personal letter to everyone you love, and tell them how much they mean to you.

The year 2015 has just shown how much technology has taken over our lives.

How many people actually talk on the phone anymore?

Take the time to write a letter or even send a holiday card, to let people know much you appreciated having them around in 2015.

Let them know you can't wait to spend 2016 and years to come with them.

Personal words go a long way.

5. Do one crazy thing that you could never even imagine yourself doing.

The great thing about life is that each year, after the famous ball in Time Square drops, we have the chance to reinvent ourselves.

We have the ability to change the person we are if we chose, or continue to allow ourselves to be an even better version of ourselves than we already are.

So why not do something crazy before the year ends? Step out of your comfort zone, and take at least one risk.

Once the year ends, it gets put into the past.

Who knows? Maybe that crazy thing will teach you a little something about yourself that you never knew.
