Do you have a bucket list? Do you update it on a monthly/annual basis?
I updated my bucket list at the beginning of this year – I update it every six months or so, as my list changes and other things come to light that I want to accomplish. One thing that has constantly been on my bucket list is to do some public speaking, to get more comfortable speaking in front of people and become more self-confident. Well, this bucket list item is coming off my list now!!
In April, I will be doing a Travel Talk at our public library here in my hometown, all about my travels and how to travel the world on a budget and credit free. I am excited to be doing this, and at the same time a trifle nervous about it. I know I can do it, or else I would not have suggested it to the library in the first place. I have already started my planning for the talk and getting pictures to show to all that attend. I hope I can encourage others to get out and see the world!! And this may sound like I am bragging – but I am very proud of myself to have put myself out there and suggested this! It is such a huge accomplishment for me – I was a very shy child and this is leaps and bounds from what I ever imagined myself doing as an adult.
I am also taking another thing off my bucket list in May – I will be going to the capital of Canada for a 4 day adventure. Ottawa has been booked – a bed and breakfast await me, and I am looking forward to making my time there an adventure!
That’s two things off my list in the first six months of this year !! I hope to have at least one more thing off of my bucket list by the end of 2018 – it’s definitely an attainable goal. I just need to set my mind to it and get it done!!
How often do you update your bucket list? Have you taken anything off of your bucket list this year? Is your bucket list full of travel or are there other things you want to accomplish?
