My Bucket List

I must admit I am an avid list maker. I make lists for shopping, lists for jobs, lists of things I should do in a day, and the list goes on. But my bucket list is my most cherished list of all, it even has its very own special notebook, separate from everything else.

 I once unfortunately spilt a whole mug of hot chocolate on my 'old' bucket list book and a had full blown tantrum before immediately going out and buying a new notebook to write it all out again.

Writing out my bucket list is one of the most blissful times. It seems to removes me from all my worries and allows me to imagine myself doing all these wonderful and amazing things.

In my bucket list notebook at the very back I also keep a list of all the amazing things that I've already experienced. You don't often think back to appreciate everything you've done before and tend to take a lot of things for granted but writing it all down makes you really appreciate all the things you have been lucky enough to do. It certainly shocked me how much I have managed to fit into my life already and the thought of how many more amazing things I will be able to do truly excited me.

When I ask people about their bucket list I've found many people tend to scowl at the idea as they think of it as a list of things they 'have' to do before they die, turning  it into a very morbid thing indeed. I disagree to this misunderstanding of what a bucket list means. It can mean very different things to different people, but to me it is a list of desires and experiences that I would be privileged to do and complete one day, but if I don't it's not anything to worry about.

I am still, and will forever be, working on my bucket list and it would mean an awful lot if you would share your favourite thing on your bucket list with me and enjoy comparing my list to your.
