The Art of Bucket Listing: : dreaming it up

Welcome to a new chapter! After battling depression and anxiety and feeling a little more confident in my ability to adult I’ve decided its time to get out and really live!!! so begins my new series: The Art of Bucket Listing. Today I intend to create my first ever bucket list with a commitment to GET OUT AND DO IT! I invite you to join with me, I’d love to hear what’s on your list and hear your stories. I’ll be sure to blog about each item I complete from my list, but first, lets get to dreaming! here are some tips for us as we create our lists. Firstly GO BIG OR GO HOME! don’t be limited by money or time expectations. be sure to fill your list with as big of dreams as possible! second DREAM SMALL! be sure to include things that are easy, cheap and every bit as fun. the more you can do now the more confident you will be to do even bigger things later! start where you are and move on up from there. Third, don’t be afraid to fail, keep trying till you get it! Fourth, adventure is much more fun with friends and family, be sure to include who you want to experience these things with. last but not least: don’t be afraid to do some of your items alone. nobody wants to wait around for someone else’s go ahead to really live! if you have an opportunity grab it whether someone comes with you or not! ok without any further ado…my bucket list!
