My Reverse Bucket List

Anybody who reads my blog or knows me at all will know that I’m a huge fan of a good list. My most used App is Wunderlist (even more than Instagram) and I just love ticking things off, it’s so satisfying. It’s less so when you don’t get to tick things off though and I’ve noticed lots of reverse bucket lists going around lately so I thought I would write my own. 

It’s easy to get so down and be hard on yourself for the things you haven’t achieved and we never take the time to look at the many things we have achieved. We really do need to be kinder to ourselves, and so with that in mind, here is my reverse bucket list.

When you look at all of my achievements so far, it doesn’t look half bad does it? I so recommend writing a reverse bucket list, just to help you realise that even if you don’t have all of your shit together, you’re doing alright. Hell, you’re probably still doing bloody great!
