My Reverse Bucket List

A reverse bucket list is a great way to express gratitude and appreciation for the opportunities you've had, and staying at home during lockdown and quarantine around the world is a great time to reflect on the things you've done already. Please do tag me in your reverse bucket list.

It is easy to think about what you still want to achieve but sometimes it's important to look back on the things that you have done and be grateful for the opportunities  you have had. I drew up my bucket list of things I want to do and decided to balance it out with my reverse bucket list -a list of bucket list items that I've had the opportunity to achieve already. Although some of these were before I started blogging so I haven't written about them.

So here is my Reverse Bucket List

  1. Hiya! Amazing blog! I happen to be a day-to-day visitor to your website (somewhat a lot more like addict ) of this site. Just wanted to say I appreciate your blogs and am searching forward for more!

  2. This is a cute idea- kind of like practicing gratitude. I am guilty of worrying too much about the future and not acknowledging all the good things I have done/am doing in my life. And the photos are marvelous of course. 🙂

  3. This is such a cool idea, I might try and do this for myself as well 🙂 Would love to walk on the Great Wall f China, that's still on my bucket list 🙂

  4. You are so adventurous! Some of the things here I'd love to do but not others such as going in a hot air balloon and the helicopter. Oh I like my feet on firm ground! 🙂

    1. Thanks Jameela. I love the air but not the water (unless I'm on a boat), so I wouldn't do things like snorkelling and diving 🙂

  5. I love this! I have always wanted to do a list of things that I've done that I'm so proud of. This is exactly the inspiration I needed! Amazing list you've got here.

    1. Thanks Jonelle. Yes, sometimes it's a good idea to focus on our achievements instead of that never-ending list of things we still want to do.
