It’s Personal: Reverse Bucket List

Stopping to take a look around at how far I have come instead of thinking about how much I have left to do is extremely rare for me. I’m always look to the future and always looking at what is coming next so I can be prepared. The problem with that though is that I don’t take time to reflect on ALL of the amazing things I’ve done. This list isn’t dedicated to my whole life but there are a lot of things that I didn’t expect to have accomplished by or before 27. In no particular order here are 27 things that made it to the list.

While making this list, I couldn’t help but smile and reflect on all of the cool things I’ve done. Often times we focus too much of our attention on the next person and what they are accomplishing causing us to forget to clap for ourselves. Make sure you take a little time today to stop what you’re doing and think about all of the things that you have done up until this very point in your life; reflect on it. Celebrate yourself and encourage yourself. Stay tuned for my Free #MoreLife Celebration Worksheet.
