Reverse bucket list

A few years ago I desided to write a bucket list. Being me I wanted to make it a bit different so wrote one for that year, it consisted of 10 things I wanted to do over the next 12 months.  At the time I was in England and had no idea what I wanted to do with my life.  I had applied for a few cruise ship jobs, the army, also some more studies.  My bucket list contained things I could do at home like

Milk a cow
Go shooting
Finish my tattoo
Dress as a smurf
Move abroad
Buy a new laptop
Visit 3 new country
Meditate on a beach

Normal easy to do things or so I thought.

By January 2012 I had a job on a cruise ship and the list was forgotten untill I got home in September. When reading my list for the fist time in 6 months I realised I had not completed as many as I had wanted to but I had done alot of other things. Things that I had never deamed of before.

This is when I realised a year bucket list was great but it left me feeling disappointed at the things I had not done. It became more negative and adds pressure to my life when I tried to complete it at the end of the year.

I like to be different  in the way I do things therefore I decided to do a reverse bucket list.  I only put down the things I have done. This way when I look at it I see all the amazing things I’ve done, I remember the great experience I had with each one. Instead of seeing a todo list I see a have done list.
