Do you feel like your days run together and you’re so busy checking boxes that you forget to have fun, try something new and explore?
I started a bucket list in my 30’s and have done it ever since. I did not want to look back at my life and see that there are things I wished I would have done, but didn’t.
Some items will be work, a lot of work, but I have a desire to do them, so it would be worth it. Sometimes just the sense of accomplishment is worth it.
At the end of every year, I update my list. I add an item, or two, that I’ve thought I would really like to do. I also go through my list, and if I have accomplished anything, will write the date next to it. This helps me see that some years I was not being very adventurous, and the days may have been running one into another, to become months, to become a year. This exercise helps me to live in the moment and make a conscious effort to do things that will bring me joy in my life.
I would love to hear something you have crossed off your bucket list. Maybe you don’t have one and I wonder why that too? I am a curious person;)
