Look around you.
The colors, the hues, the light, the shadows, ...
The details, the big picture, ...
Look around you.
Be in the moment.
Have you made your bucket list?
You know, that list of the things you want to do before dying (or “kicking the bucket”)?
Written like that, it might seem a bit macabre, but really, it’s not.
We are not here on earth only to go to work, stress and fulfill our duties.
We are also here to learn, grow, enjoy, discover, experience, live, have fun...
By making a bucket list, we remember to dream, we bring into focus, into our consciousness
what is important to us, and when we do so, we get inspired, to take action, and live a more fulfilling life!
It is primordial to make the most of our time on this beautiful planet.
How to make a bucket list
Think of the things that you want to do in your life, whether today, this week, this month, this year,
in the next 5, 10, 20, 30 years...
Things that you want to be, do, have, and most importantly experience.
Things that, if you don’t allow yourself to do, you will feel like you missed something.
Some will be easy to achieve, some will take time, some efforts, others money.
Some will seem crazy, some should take you out of your comfort zone...
Write as many as you can.
Come on, do it now.
Don’t stop until you have 50, or better 100 things on your list.
And... Be specific
It can be: skills (to learn or master), travels, events (to participate in or attend), activities, hobbies, contribution (ex.: volunteering...), etc.
Now, choose one thing that you can do in the short term.
Which first step can you take today to make this one thing happen?
Of course, as time goes by, you can update, change, add and remove things from your list, as long as whatever is on it feels great to you.
But refer to it often. And take action regurlarly!
Let’s make every day count.
