So, my bucket list is sitting right in front of me. Do I want to learn French? Oui Oui. Wine tasting with my hubby? Heck yah. Get on a surfboard and confront my fear of the ocean? Well, now that’s pushing it.
You may have your own thoughts and ideas of things you’d like to try this year. But, do you have a bucket list? Do most people even have a bucket list?! I never did, until now. I’m thinking about how many things I’d love to do this year, but haven’t had the chance, time or resources. Perhaps now is the time! But, because I don't want to disappoint myself, I’d like to think of this list as taking one step at a time. I guess that’s why they call it a bucket list. A bunch of stuff on a list. Either you get to it, or it just keeps filling up.
I urge you to do the same. Don’t get overwhelmed or crazy. Just come up with a few things on your list, starting this summer. Things you never get a chance to do or see because during the year, you’re so preoccupied with the kids and family. Like one of mine for example…spend at least 15 minutes of uninterrupted time with my husband. Without answering the phones, going on computers, or the kids wanting something. I think it’s doable.
Don’t make that bucket list faux pas ( there’s my French!). It shouldn’t feel mind-boggling or stressful, like you’re making a to-do list. Make it fun, reasonable and something you look forward to trying or doing. Be flexible. Be daring. Be different. Open yourself up to the unknown. We all might want to do a thousand things but realistically, we don’t have to cram it all in. Ready?
I totally got this.
