Wish List for Life!
We are talking Wish Lists…
Did you decide to make any New Year resolutions for 2020? If so, have you got going, or have some already fallen by the wayside…
The start of a new year, does tend to make us reflect, and perhaps look at what we want from our futures. But it is all too easy for us to get swept up in the humdrum of life, and not reach for our bigger goals.
I’m not particularly fond of the term ‘Bucket List’, as for me it has too close an association with death. But, having a Life Wish List – can be a positive reminder of your hopes and dreams for life.
You could attach an age to things, or a time frame. For example: Life wishes for the next 10 years. Or 10 things to do before I am 50…
How the wish list is made up is entirely up to you. It can be incredibly fanciful – literally reaching for the stars, climbing Mount Everest for example. Or more realistic, but none the less important and meaningful to you.
Here are some concepts you might like to consider when composing your Wish List:
- Holiday of a lifetime.
- A real show stopper.
- A place to visit in the UK.
- Learn an instrument.
- Speak a foreign language.
- Visit a famous landmark.
- Do something daring.
- Eat at a famous restaurant.
- Stay one night in a fancy hotel.
- Drive a sports car.
- Learn a new skill.
- Do something really out of your comfort zone.
- Something that enriches your relationship.
- Something that enhances family life.
The possibilities are of course endless…
The idea of such a life wish list, is not to add pressure to an already busy existence – but to encourage you to slow down. To take stock of life, and truly understand that our time on earth is short, and that we have to make the most of it. With truly enriching experiences for our mind, body and soul – both big and small on a day to day basis.
You don’t have to attach time limits if you don’t want to, the last thing you want is to feel like you are failing at your list. Equally it is okay if some things never get done – just reaching for your highest potential is enough. It’s also okay to add to the list at any time, as the moment strikes you.
So, instead of looking at life through the same tired New Year resolutions lens this year, why not strive for some adventure and new experiences. Go out into 2020, asking – what can I do and see today!Tweet
