Back in 2014, I just resigned from work so I got so much stuff in my head and I wanna do this, and do that..blah! blah! blah! I was reading articles about how to make things happen in your life and the idea of a bucket list came to the picture.
It’s a list of things and experiences that you want to accomplish in your lifetime.
They say that if you got goals, you should envision them and you must always be reminded and then the universe will do its magic and the next thing you know, they are coming to life. One at a time. This is also the reason why some would prefer a vision board that they post on a wall so when they wake up, it’s the first thing that they see.
It's like there's this unexplained force that helps you achieve them when you always see your goals. And it's not the irritating kind. It's the inspiring kind. Seriously!
So to make it short, I bought this notebook that says “If not now, then when – Bucket List” from Kikki K. and listed the things that I wanna do. After 4 years, I saw the notebook again while I was rummaging all my old notes and books and read my entries, I can’t help but smile because I didn’t realise that I’ve achieved a lot! So now, I decided to share them here so my blog will also serve as my vision board since I have a daily access to it.
There are 100 items on my list and I had to revise/update them a bit but I’m pretty sure I’m gonna add some more as I go on. 🙂
