50 Things To Add To Your Bucket List


Your Very Own Bucket-list

We all have our own little shortlist of the things we want to achieve in our life.  And most of them are very sensible and appropriate; buy a house, get your dream job, buy a new car, get a pet…etc.  And these are fantastic achievements and you should continue with these great goals. But they are also in the realm of day-to-day life. Our question to you is…when you look back on your life, will you think to yourself “Wow, I really LIVED”, or “That will do”?

If you’re starting to think you would like to add a little spice to your list of accomplishments, then check out our ‘50 Things To Do Before You Die’ list.

Be bold and courageous. When we have lived our lives, we’ll regret the things we didn’t do more than the things we did.

I was looking forward to incorporating new self care practices into my life, taking time out for myself and connecting with other women and mama’s.

    I love your list and am proud to say I’ve ticked off quite a few already, however I must say I was HORRIFIED to see your number one. Unfortunately I have actually ridden an elephant, before I learned of the terrifying truth behind this industry. PLEASE educate yourself. I do believe everyone should encounter these amazing creatures, but please do so responsibly. I rode an elephant in Thailand as many tourists do, but only years later did I visit the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai and learn of the honourable way to enjoy these magical creatures. I encourage you not to make the same uneducated mistake I did. I can say from experience, my elephant ride was fun (at the time) however my visit to Elephant Nature Park literally changed my outlook on life – definitely bucket list worthy!
