Bucket Lists: Make them do-able…and do them!
1st October 2019
When I think of my original Bucket List that I made when I was probably about 16, it had all the usual stuff on it:
- See the Northern Lights
- Do a Sky-Dive
- Do Route 66 in a convertible Mustang
- Be an extra in a movie
And then I realised what it means to be an adult! Limited free time, not the millionaire I thought I would be by this age, work, family and friend priorities…Inevitably, ticking off my bucket list has come to a bit of a halt.
The mini Bucket List
So, while I am definitely keeping that original list to keep me inspired (and to admire my optimistic 16-year-old self!) I’ve taken a different approach and now make a new, more achievable list every year. (I don’t know why but the start of the new school year always feels like the start of a new year for me – I must still think I’m 16.)
Result? A ‘mini’ Bucket List of smaller, more attainable items that you want to do but don’t generally make time for. It makes for more interesting weekends, weekday evenings and general day-to-day life. It’ll help you to get out of a rut and enjoy life more! And research shows that it can lead to a more fulfiling (sorry) life. So..here is my 2019/2020 Bucket List in case it gives you some inspiration to make your own;
My 2019/20 Bucket List:
- Go on a solo holiday
- Do a marathon (about to tick this off in 3 weeks – eeeek! If this is on your list, just sign up for one and you’ll figure out the rest!)
- Swim in the sea every month
- Midnight kayaking to see the bioluminescence
- Learn to skateboard
- Visit at least one new place in my country
- Go wild camping
Remember; make it doable – and then do it!
