Everyone likes to rub it in that I’m the baby, the young Mum and I have nothing at all against it! I embrace it wholeheartedly and whilst sometimes I wish I had closer friends in the same boat with me ultimately it doesn’t matter. But that isn’t what I intended to discuss with this post. This post was/is going to tie in with the whole point of this blog – buckets and crossing those suckers off my list.
I regularly make lists, especially to do ones or bucket lists. I have an unfinished 100 things to do before I die list that will never be finished because I find myself wanting to put things on there that I’ve already done. This made me realise that I can’t even fathom some of the awesome things that are out there that I’m yet to enjoy so why bother with a list. That didn’t stop me from wanting to create a 30 before 30 list, I figured with less than 4 years to go I could cross off some pretty fun things and also a lot of things I’ve been procrastinating over. It’s hard to know quite what to put on a list like this though and how do you measure certain things? For example one thing is to do things outside my comfort zone – I haven’t put a specific limit on how many or how often so how do I know when it’s completed? I blame university for making me think this way, having to make goals with are specific and measurable (there is some specific term for it but my mummy brain isn’t letting me remember!). I’m just going to go with the flow though and even if I don’t achieve everything or I only half achieve something it’s more about having fun along the way!
Surprise, surprise but this list also isn’t finished but when it is I’ll be making it a page and setting it at the top of this blog. Hopefully I’ll still be around when I turn 30 but I love the online community too much to ever disappear completely!
