everyone is talking about theirs, especially now, in january. It seems just natural to people to want to archive things. Mine are all long-term, unlimited and also not done, as soon as I´ve taken the first steps. I wanted to share my "bucket List" with you, consisting of a bit more than single experiences. Just things that are worth thinking about in my opinion. Feel free to share your opinion with me, tell me about your daily bucket list or just tell me about my spelling mistakes. I am always happy to read your comments!
1. Listen up
When did you last pulled of your headphones in public, to listen to the city, the people around you, strangers, kids laughers or barking of dogs? Its sometimes worth a lot to pay attention to the world that surrounds you.
2. share the little things
I don't talk about donating to every poor person who asks you. When you live in Berlin, you get asked for money at least 5 times per day - I sometimes just don't have the change. But what you always should have are tissues, lighters, bobby pins or security pins. You never know when you meet a mom in need for a clean tissue, struggling with her kids who needed all of them already ;)
3. quit poison
not a small goal in my opinion. I talk about bad sugars and milk. Cutting it a bit can really improve your health, even if quitting is a hard thing to do. But just try it! Use nut milks instead (very cheap when you make them yourself) and find out about your body.
4. enjoy the time
did you ever got up so early that you just didn't know what to do? Sometimes I wonder where the long breakfasts, the morning walks and all the time got, that I search for around 10 p.m. The time is way earlier, forgotten between the second alert and the wasted time with my smartphone in bed. Get up earlier, enjoy your time, forget the rush.
5. travel to conquer
how do you search for destinations? Reading travel guides or blogs? Guess what, someone has already been there, done that. How about consulting the experts: locals. They might tell you about an area you cannot find in a guide, which is yours only. You are not here to re-take a picture or re-write a story. You write your own story and you are free to go your own path. appreciate that.
6. reduce the weight
I don't talk about body issues, but about all the stuff in boxes we have. Once a year, you should be honest with yourself and rethink what you own. The fleamarkets are waiting for you.
