Bucket List

Agneatha Bucket List

Confession: I am a huge fan of lists!

When I was younger I had a list for my lists.

Now 29 years old; I have hordes of notebooks and post-it notes filled with little lists of “things to do” and ideas for my multipotentialite projects.

 

I am pleased to say that I managed to tick of 8 of the 12 main goals I had set for myself when I was 16. I found the long forgotten A2 chart (yes, a chart!… made with magazine cut outs AND colour pen) boxed up at the back of a closet.

 

In a bid to hold myself accountable I am going public with my goals.

I’ve learned to not to be too hard on myself if I don’t reach my deadlines; life happens and you have to move on. Yet I continue to plan, plot and notarise because I think it’s important to have something to strive for and a sense of direction.

So this bucket list has and will continue to be a work in progress.
