Welcome to Xavier’s bucket list

I got a gorgeous email recently from a wonderful friend chatting about a lunch she’d had with her little boy Xavier that day. They were talking about holidays, dreams and aspirations and, very inspiringly, they decided to write Xavier’s bucket list.

Everything on it was thought up by him, here goes:

  • Be a doctor
  • Ride in a sea plane
  • Be a photographer
  • Be a dad
  • Go to a restaurant on my own for peace and quiet
  • Be a fireman
  • Be able to read a list (I think he means this one)
  • Make cupcakes on my own
  • Go to a One Direction concert
  • Go to a Bruno Mars concert
  • Be a singer
  • Be an artist

And since the first draft he’s also added that he wants to make a trip to Legoland.

He’s four and a half years old and his bucket list will rival many of you who are reading this!

C’mon – what’s stopping you?

Want more inspiration than Xavier’s rad list above? Check out Ben’s adventures over at The Red Rucksack or Candy Chang’s incredible Ted talk ‘Before I die I want too…’

What’s life without dreams?

P.S. Days after compiling his bucket list, Xavier’s mum saw a friend post on Facebook that she had had to give up her two One Direction tickets. Bucket list fate, I say! Xavier will tick this off in October. And I’m encouraging him to set up a photo blog right now, I know he took some great photos at a wedding we recently attended. Why not head here and leave him some love?
