The ultimate winter bucket list for inspiration!

Overnight success is a myth. It takes years of hard work, sweat, blood, and tears to become an overnight success.

Why a winter bucket list you might ask? Why not, I would answer. The winter season is often disregarded as the worst season; people usually go into hibernation until the weather gets better. I suggest getting the best out of the cold season.
