Completing my Bucket List

If I Hadn’t Started My Bucket List

My whole life now is because of a list I wrote around 4 years ago.

It wasn’t a case of just writing everything down though, I had to actually go through with things.

If I hadn’t started my bucket list I would still be overweight and depressed.

I wouldn’t have started my blog.


I then wouldn’t have contacted a newspaper to help with my bucket list, which in turn meant my list wouldn’t have been picked up in international press.

This would have meant I wouldn’t have been able to have had half of the experiences I’ve had, or work with some amazing companies.

I wouldn’t have met an amazing community of local bloggers who meet up and support each other.


I wouldn’t have taken part in a Halloween show, and would have missed out on the best few Halloweens of my life scaring people.

If I hadn’t done that, I wouldn’t have discovered my love for special effects make up.


I wouldn’t have visited ten countries this year.

I wouldn’t have flown a plane, swam with sharks, sky dived or bungee jumped.


I wouldn’t have discovered a deep love for Escape Rooms.

I wouldn’t have faced my fears.

I wouldn’t be happy.

Yes I am aware I am very lucky that a lot of this has happened, but it wouldn’t have happened if I didn’t take that small step in the first place.  I don’t want to even imagine how my life would be if I hadn’t started my bucket list.

There are still many things in my life I need to improve on, but if all these things can happen in such a short time, I have no doubt I’ll achieve everything I want to in life.

So start now.  Get writing your list down.  Don’t make your life a list of things you didn’t do.


Happy Bucket Listing

    It’s amazing how much you have achieved in just four years, with all the countries you have visited and the things you have done. While people say (myself included) “I’d really like to do ____________, it’s on my bucket list” but then do nothing about it you have actually gone out and done something about it to achieve your dream. Well done you on taking that small step xx
