I recently read about a Summer Bucket list from the Crafty Side of Sarcasm and thought to myself, “I can do this. I can make a bucket list for a period of time, not my whole life at once or many years.” So, here I am making and publishing a bucket list.
I’m not entirely sure why I never though to do a short time frame list like this before. I do know that I’ve never written a bucket list. I had this idea they had to be about one’s whole life and they had to be fun, adventurous things. Since I don’t know all the fun, adventurous things I’d like to do or even know about, it seemed like such a daunting (and somewhat pointless) task. Besides, even if there were things I might have put on a bucket list, I would talk myself out them. I probably have been more scared to have a list and not mark things off timely than any activities I could have put on it.
Needless to say, now I’m doing one! It won’t be about my whole life. All of the things aren’t going to seem very fun or adventurous to many, but it’s what works for me. I like to think of it more like a list of goals, which is the same, just different thinking for me. My goal will be to provide random updates on how I’m progressing through my bucket list.
I think I’ll call it the 2014 Bucket List!
1. Finish the project I’ve been working on.
2. Go to the gym every week.
3. Move into a different place, maybe even a house.
4. Increase my farmer’s market/fresh foods purchases.
5. Buy those essential oils I’ve been wanting to.
6. Take Baby Boy to more local parks to play.
7. Take Baby Boy to the library for story/reading time.
8. Get a local library card for this area.
9. Form new mommy friendships.
10. Gain more financial security.
11. Get another vehicle.
12. Keep traveling.
13. Buy an RV.
14. Get a pedicure.
15. Get a haircut.
16. Crochet a new blanket for my dad.
17. Spend more time with friends and family.
18. Stay connected to others.
19. Get involved in more. Breastfeeding advocacy, birth advocacy.
20. Try for our second child.
21. Breastfeed Baby Boy at least until 18 months.
22. Take Baby Boy to the beach.
23. Go to a bed & breakfast.
24. Have a quick trip, just Hun and I. Or just a date night.
25. Start developing film.
I know this list has some real basic things listed (pedicure, haircut, etc.). BUT, I wouldn’t have them on here if they weren’t goals , things I’d like to do/get done this year.
Hopefully I can achieve much of this list, thereby making it more fun to do next year (maybe). I also realize that we’re almost half through with this year, so I need to get crackin’!
I hope you’ll join me in writing a bucket list for a season, year, or even many years if you’d like. If you’ve already written one, how is it (has it) gone for you?
