Time is far too precious to waste it…

After losing a loved one, artist Candy Chang turned the side of an abandoned house in New Orleans into a wall stenciled with the sentence, “Before I die I want to _____.”

Within a day of its completion, the wall was covered in her neighbours’ dreams and now thanks to passionate people around the world, over 450 Before I Die walls have been created in 30 languages and over 65 countries.

Inspired by the text above? We would love you to share your BIG dream here. And then go – and do it!
