Who has a bucket list? Or have you ever considered making one? After the fun we had in 2020, i have decided i do not want to waste a minute of 2021! !
(I will be adhering to all local guidelines in regards to lockdowns and social distancing, items on this list will not be completed until it is safe to do so)
Check out my list of 100 things to do in 2021! It was a lot of fun researching things to do and coming up with ideas!
Each new year, I like to build up excitement for the coming year. On a recent training course, the teacher asked us to make a list of 100 things to do before our next big life event! I did this and thought - What a cool idea! SO... i decided i would make a more achievable list for 2021 and get excited for the year ahead.
To be clear, this is not a “100 things to do before you die” or ‘100 things to do in life” bucket list. But instead, it is a list of fun things to do in 2021 only. *BE REALISTIC*
It can include bucket list things you’ve been meaning to do, It can also include things you’ve done before and would like to do again, like going camping or volunteering, or climb a mountain again.
You might have things on your list you know is going to happen, for example, i know i am going camping in 2021 i go every year! I have already climbed Slieve Donard, but i would love to do it for sunrise!
The idea of this is to come up with new ideas, and sometimes listing things you have already done can help you come up with new ideas! It's a great way to stay excited for the year ahead.
Make 2021 a great year! Cross off some bucket list ideas, and push yourself to get more out of life. If you find yourself with a spare weekend or evening, check out what is on your list. Can you tick something off?
So many weekends i sit and complain i have nothing to do, or i can't think of anything, well there are no excuses for 2021!
THE RULES: 100 THINGS IN 2021
Who likes the word rules... let's say guidelines!
1. Get a notebook, switch the computer on or open the notes on your phone. Either way, get the numbers 1 - 100 down somewhere.
2. Write down something you want to do/ happen in 2021
3. Easy... Keep doing this until all 100 numbers have something beside them.
4. Be specific, don't just say - practice more self-care. What self-care? What do you want to do? How often?
5. If you need to split things up, and break them into smaller goals then do this, so restoring my Honda 50 is one goal and taking it to a vintage rally is another. Even if i dont get the Honda finished, i can still take it to a rally and tick that off.
6. Be realistic when it comes to time and money! You shouldn't feel pressure or anxiety because you have set unrealistic travel goals on your list or can't find the time to complete the items on your list. At the end of 2021, the idea is, we all look back at our lists and feel good about the year we have had and all we have accomplished!
7. Remember it's about having fun. 2020 was hard enough guys, let's make 2021 fun and enjoyable!
P.s don't lose your list.
