Uche Ucheka’s 101 Bucket List

I am super excited to be adding another year to my years this month (Yes I am proudly August born). This year 2017 has been an exceptional year for me as I have so much to be thankful for in all areas of my life and that of my loved ones. The year also is a landmark year in my life as it represents the beginning of my pet project  

I consider this particular year special because it is a key point in my life where I have found the courage to venture into the deep and explore the potentials deposited inside of me at creation. When I say this year is exceptional it is not because I have had it all rosy, no…I have been tempted and tested, I have cried and almost lost hope, I have lost despite my faith in the miraculous and I have been hit by the unpredictability of life severally BUT in all of these I still have joy and I see miracles all around me on a daily basis and day in day out a better me emerges.

So in honor of my birthday in this month of August 2017, I hereby release my 101 bucket list version 1.0. Now I know the temporal nature of our sojourn in this world and I do not know the number of birthdays I have left before the owner of my life summons.
