“History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it.” – Winston Churchill
What’s on your bucket list?
Don’t have one? Make one.
I’m a huge believer in doing what makes you happy; and a bucket list is purely created with things that would make you happiest.
As much as I love spending my money on material things, especially shoes, I find it much more worthwhile to use my savings to visit new places and try new things.
Yeah okay, you might really want the latest Michael Kors handbag and yes, it might cost $2,000 and of course, it might be the coolest thing ever. But, what are you going to remember more, that handbag you once saved up for (that went out of fashion the year after) or, road tripping with your friends across the country.
It’s the memories you make with friends and family that stay with you forever, not what designer label you bought.
Some of the things I’ve already checked off my bucket list are some of my best memories. For example, scuba diving in Australia, going on safari in South Africa, cliff jumping and learning to snowboard.
Here are some things I’m desperate to check off my bucket list. You can guarantee as soon as I can afford if, I’ll be ticking these off one by one!
- BUNGEE JUMP
Yes I know it’s scary, dangerous and damn right crazy…but you can’t blame an adrenaline junkie to want to jump upside-down off a __ft platform can you?
- SKY DIVE
And, if I can jump 500ft connected to a bungee, why wouldn’t I fall 10,000ft without being connected to anything?
- SWIM WITH SHARKS
Don’t get me wrong; I do want to swim with dolphins too. There’s just something a little cooler about swimming alongside sharks.
I’m obsessed with travelling and visiting new places. Personally, it’s one of my favorite things to do. I’d love to visit India and experience it’s culture, cuisine and beautiful surroundings.
Another country I’m dying to visit. For years I’ve admired pictures of Thailand and I’m desperate to venture there myself.
- LAS VEGAS & GRAND CANYON
I’m eagerly awaiting my 21st birthday so I can properly experience the Las Vegas hype and obviously, visit the Grand Canyon too. I’m hoping this will be something I can check off my bucket list in 2016!
- ROAD TRIP
This one is a little rusty. The dream is to road trip for at least a month with friends in a VW Camper Van or a Land Rover Defender. Not sure where, not sure when, not really sure how…but it’ll happen. Suggestions welcome!
There are many more things on my bucket list, some small dreams but also some much bigger life goals
I encourage you to make a bucket list as a little motivation to get out there and achieve your dreams!
