{A} Little Red Bucket List- there can be more than one list right?

Image

So as I’m now considered “middle-aged” {at 31?}, I thought I’d start my own Bucket List. I love lists, they rock my world and make it go round. Without them, I’d be lost. Sometimes every “to-do” gets crossed off with a grin soaked in achievement, mostly, I just start a new list!

 Getting a tad adventurous, but thinking that all of this is totally achievable.

take my children to my favourite places in Australia: Blinman, Chambers Gorge, Sydney {TICK!}, Ayers Rock, Perth, Port Douglas, Broome, Darwin, Cape York Peninsula and Margaret River

learn another language and speak it fluently whilst holidaying in that country (I pick…….French!)

finish renovating our house {to my satisfaction} and at four long months and counting to paint a small room {over many stretched out weekends, I might add}, this will be no mean feat!

Painting our new room. If only it was the fun, creative kind.....

publish a children’s book or series of books {if I get keen} and have my kids provide the illustrations- topic/s yet to be decided. Ideas?

  • start an online supportive community for young mothers who have lost both their parents {in my world, which a lot of the time, just includes me, this group is in high demand unfortunately!}
the most beautiful, kind soul you could have ever hoped to have known. My precious Mum and I shortly afetr I was born. I miss her more than words could describe.

What’s on your bucket list? When did you realise a bucket list could help kick-start your dreams into reality? Getting everything down on paper can make what you want clear and gives you direction. We all get a rush from that feeling of achieving a goal or having a wish come true. It spurs us on to achieve more and more, reaching higher every time.

i want to be this person.
