Instead of thinking of a “bucket” list, where you think you won’t have much time, and want to accomplish a certain list before moving or if you’re ill, etc — what about a life list?
One, it sounds more positive and uplifting because it’s about living your list rather than trying to get through a list. It’s about figuring out what would make your life happier, more fulfilling, and how you would feel during each experience.
What are some examples?
- Writing a book
- Going hiking once a month
- Learning to play piano
- Writing letters or speaking on the phone with your best friend each week or month
- Finding a charity to support physically or through donation
- Spending an hour each day for yourself
- Reading 5 books a month
- Writing a love letter to yourself a few times a year based on your accomplishments and who you are “today”
- Trying a new recipe each week
- Drinking those 8 glasses of water
- Worrying less about what we can’t control and living in the moment
- Going on a trip with your parent or sibling
- Having a friend reunion each year
- Keeping a plant alive for more than a day
…and so much more.
I know I could do better about following a life list…what about you?
