Just about everyone has thought about skydiving at least once. Many are too scared to try, but those who are brave enough to try have an amazing memory to cherish.

Run a Marathon
Competing in a marathon is certainly challenging. 26 miles of running requires extensive training. However, the feeling of pride when you cross the finish line is only known to those who experience it. See if there are any marathons in your city and start training as early as you can.
Pay off Credit Card Debt
It might not seem as glamorous as some of the other items on this list, but getting rid of your credit card debt is a relief like you wouldn’t believe. Depending on how much debt you have it might take a while to pay it all off. However, you can definitely make a significant dent in it. When your debt is paid off, you’ll have much more financial freedom.
Learn an Instrument
Have you ever had dreams of performing in front of an adoring crowd? This is still possible. It might not be playing to stadiums, but you can show off your talents with a bit of effort and practice. Sign up for lessons to learn how to play guitar, piano, or another instrument and experience the joy of creating music.
Crossing these items off your bucket list can be incredibly invigorating. You can get out of your routine by doing things that are scary, exciting, and require your full concentration in order to really enjoy them. When you blow out the candles on your 30th birthday cake, remember how happy you are about adding these achievements to your life.
