I hate using the phrase bucket list because it implies life's like a grocery list of to-do's. Not to mention I despise the sound of that haphazard term. Check. Done. Check. Done. Sounds rather unfulfilling when your dreams are laid out that way. So, I'm just going to call it as it is. It's a dream that's coming true!
I was shocked and disheartened on Monday January 15th when I read about the sudden passing of Dolores O'Riordan, lead singer of the band The Cranberries and one of my all time favorite singers. I can't help but wonder how difficult it must have been for her to live with her challenges, especially along with the highs and lows of stardom. Like anyone living with mental health challenges, regardless of the support we have around us, it can still sometimes feel solitary and isolating.
