Good morning, sweet peas! Did everyone have a nice holiday weekend? Are you finding it a bit difficult to zip up the ol’ pants this morning? It’s a sign of a filling and fulfilling holiday weekend, right? 🙂
I’d like to thank Lost Gen Y Girl for inspiring today’s blog post with her wonderful list of 100 lifestyle blog post ideas (if you haven’t checked it out yet, be sure to pin and save!). The idea behind this post is to share some of the coolest things you’ve had the chance to cross off your life’s bucket list. I love the idea behind this, primarily because when I look at my life and all I’ve done and accomplished, it seems full. But, like many, I am plagued by FOMO and am always thinking of all the things I’m missing or haven’t yet accomplished, or done, or visited, or fill in the blank here.
You know what I’m talking about.
We’ve become so obsessed with documenting our journey on social media that we don’t often take the time to reflect on what was and all that has shaped us.
Here are some things on my reverse bucket list:
Study abroad in Heidelberg, Germany
Enjoy a Sachertorte in Austria
Send myself a postcard from Paris to remember and savor the sights, the sounds, the feelings forever
See rows and rows of colorful tulips (as far as the eye can see!) in Holland
Follow Phish, crossing many state lines
Visit Bob Marley’s birthplace and see the inspiration behind Three Little Birds
Venture to the town of Hanalei (where Puff the Magic Dragon is from)
Embrace my inner child at Walt Disney World
Learn to live with roommates, alone, and with a lover (each very different experiences)
Enjoy a very brief sublet on the Lower East Side
Have my first-ever pick-pocketing experience in Rome (maybe it wasn’t my favorite moment in life, but a learning experience nonetheless)
Switch careers and reinvent myself, multiple times
See my idols in concert and line my walls with ticket stubs
Engage in a torrid romance… with a sexy fireman (everyone should have this on their bucket list, wink!)
Experience the worst kind of heartache… only to bounce back (years later) and find love again
Foster multiple dogs and realize my life’s purpose is filled with fur and tail wags
Translate in an international camp in Germany
Go on a ghost hunt
What makes your reverse bucket list?
