Thinking out loud

by - September 16, 2014

Ever since I coloured my hair violet, I have gotten a lot of good reactions with it, even my mom! That alone is surprising! Haha! And it made me really happy I went through with that decision since I've always wanted to have a different hair colour. :) Now, everyday it has made me question more all the things that I wanna do and achieve in life. I have an endless list in my mind; some I remember, some I don't. But often times I try to write them down on my notebook and simply call it my BUCKET LIST. :)

I'm sure you all have your own version of a Bucket List. Like some do a list of things they wanna achieve in a year and the others create a list of things they wanna do before they die. It's the easy. The only difficult really is how to check the items on your list. Often times we get lazy, we try to put it off another day or we simply think it's not possible for the mean time to accomplish our Bucket list. But until when are we gonna hold back, right?

I'm in my 20's and soon enough (specifically 5 years), i'll be 30. I don't think I wanna wait until I'm in my 30's to go for all the daring things that I want to do NOW. I wanna be able to take charge and go for it! After all, waiting just increases the agony and regret. My new goal is to try and lessen my "WHAT IF's?" and be more of a "I did it!" kinda person. It's time to stop wondering what i'll do for the rest of my life and start making things happen!

Your list doesn't have to be filled with difficult things. It can be as simple as wanting to drive a car or going on a road trip with your friends. It's want YOU want. That's the best part of making the list. :)

[] Get married-Civil

[] Divisoria trip with the BFFs
[] Attend a Holi-Festival of colours Celebration
[] Learn Archery

A few of the things that I want to accomplish in my Bucket list (in no particular order):

[ ] Travel with the Husband and kids (can be domestic or international)….
[ ] Gain 105 pounds
[ ] Attend craft classes (rubber stamp making, water colour, etc.)….
[ ] Get a small tattoo on my right wrist

These are just a few that I have on my notebook. It's longer there, but I wouldn't wanna flood you with them. If you're not the notebook type, maybe you can also do your Bucket List via the internet. :) Here's a great site to do it at: :)

Making a list can also boost your energy when it comes to life. You have so much to look forward to and enjoy. :) Don't waste the seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years wondering what you'll do and if you can do it. Just keeping trying and I'm sure you'll be much happier crossing out stuff from your bucket list! Like me! Hello violet hair!! ^_^
