A little while ago I discovered a great blog by Lesley Carter and I promised myself (and Lesley) that I would do my own Bucket List and share it. I’m hoping that some of you will already know about this site and if you don’t I think that the first thing you do before reading my post is check it out here;
LESLEY CARTER – BUCKET LIST PUBLICATIONS
What Lesley started was amazing and inspiring – hence this very post! I like the fact that she sets an annual list rather than a lifetime one – it makes things harder to put off!
So my Bucket List for 2012 is below – I was unsure of what to put in this list and actually got a bit frustrated with myself about the process. Should I have very specific goals or more general ones? Should I have 100′s or 10? Is there a set of rules you are meant to follow? I haven’t seen the film and not looked it up, are the ‘rules’ one must follow?
Already a reality check was needed – firstly in under six weeks time I’ll have my first baby – now there is no reason why I can not have my adventures with my new family in tow (Lesley demonstrates this a lot) however I might take a bit longer to get there. Secondly there are only 3 months left of the 2012 year so again I’ll be keeping this small so that I don’t set too much pressure on myself (but anything not done in 2012 will be default move to the 2013).
As its my list I’m going to set my own rule – do it for myself only! I’ve spent long enough worrying about what people think and I’m sure that some things in life have flown right past me as I’ve spent my head in the sand or unable to make a decision.
BUCKET LIST (in no order)
- Finish writing my book that I started before the blog (currently 10,000 words)
- Upcycle a piece of furniture & the glass jars (I’ll explain all in the post!)
- Rid the house of any unwanted items
- Take my newborn and NED to the seaside for a weekend break.
- Learn how to use my slow cooker
- Take a course in photography.
- Set a date to get married to NED.
- Write my 2013 list!
So far so good I think. I’ll be updating this post with links when I have actually completed an item off the list.
Have you done a bucket list? I’d enjoy seeing it so please link it back to this post with a comment.
So here goes - Wish me luck!
