My bucket list

I quite like this idea of a bucket list – all the things you want to do before you die.

I have lots of things that I’d really like to see and do. My bucket list items change over time as I tick things off and think of new things I’d like to accomplish. In the past couple of years I’ve completed a whole bunch of stuff.

I always wanted to have my own car and be able to drive. Tick.
I always wanted to own a diamond ring. Tick.
I dreamed of traveling the world. Tick.

And then there are the little things. When I first started skating, I imagined one day being good enough to speed skate in the public sessions. I really never thought I’d be good enough. But tonight, there I was, zooming around the rink with the wind whistling in my ears. I wasn’t the fastest out there, not by a long shot. But I was doing it, going as fast as I dare. What a great feeling.

    As my Mum always drummed into me when I was growing up,” There is no such word as ‘can’t'” and this is so true. We can do and have whatever we want if we apply ourselves. Our dreams and need just have to big enough!! xxx
