The Reversed Bucket List

Everyone has a bucket list. If it’s not written down, you have it in your head. If you don’t have those things that you still want to do, goals to accomplish, places you want to travel to, then I honestly feel sad for you. Anyway. vielleichtinteressant made a reversed bucket list on her blog a while ago, and it’s basically a list of all the things that you have already done, experienced or accomplished. I thought this was amazing because sometimes we manage to forget how great our lives actually are.

  • I swam with dolphins in Florida
  • I’ve seen the Northern Lights – not only north of the Arctic Circle in Norway but I’ve also been fortunate enough to live in a place called Jasper, Canada for a while where I saw them several times a month
