What do you do when you do something (planned or unplanned) and then realize you would have put it on your bucket list, had you not done it already?
If you’re a list-lover like me, you can make a new list!
This new list is my Reverse/Retrospective Bucket List. It includes bucket list worthy things I’ve done prior to getting the chance to put them on my real list. The idea was inspired by Le and David from Wise Monkeys Abroad (who also did an interview for this site, check it out).
Apart from the innate satisfaction of having a new list, I like writing this list because it helps me be grateful for the things I’ve already had the chance to do and experience. It’s also a really fun way to remember these events and celebrate some of the more ordinary-but-fun moments in life.
Take a look at my Retrospective Bucket List and let me know if you have one too! If you don’t, would it be something you would want to make?
I smiled reading all your lists , and it made me grateful for many of my own experiences that I had forgotten about. I definitely need to keep a retrospective list too. Sandy
Taking time to remember was really effective in making me more grateful. Would love to read your list if you feel like sharing. 🙂
So glad we were able to inspire you to create this list 🙂
