Reads Like a Meditation.
I love the way Marion breaks the chapters into bite size pieces so that I am able to read it a bit at a time. She has a way of connecting with the reader. I enjoy reading the quotes and then reflect on how it relates to my life. I am able to let go of the past and focus on where I want to go in the future.
This book is great for those who are starting out on their journey of self-discovery and for those who have been on the road for a while, this book makes a great refresher, a wonderful place to sit and relax a bit.
So whether you are at the beginning, in the middle or at the end of your day, The No-Regrets Bucket List is a great read, leaving you with hope and inspiration.

Our book club read two of Ms. Witte’s prior books, so when The No-Regrets Bucket List came out, we were curious about it, as is seemed like a diversion from her previous works. We found it to be very much in line with the message of Courage of the Soul and Little Madhouse on the Prairie. This work is about becoming the person you were meant to be, and creating the legacy you want to leave behind.
As we started discussing this book, we realized most of the women in our club have created bucket lists, to one extent or another, and they revolve around places to go, things to acquire or goals to reach. Marion’s concept of a bucket list is quite different – it is about deciding who you want to be in life – and taking the necessary action to achieve your desired result.
The book contains a variety of ideas for determining who you want at the end of your life and suggestions for achieving that goal. The author even included blank tombstones at the end of the book so you can write your own epitaph! There are also an incredible number of wonderful quotations associated with each topic.
The author is clear that you don’t have to create a bucket list in order to accomplish your life’s objectives, although it can be a helpful tool, reminder and guide in doing so. One of our favorite sayings in this book is -We are all going to be but a memory someday – so let’s make it a good one.
