Think about 3 things that are on your bucket list. What goal would you go for if anything was possible? What can you do to feel like that in your life today?
This is my task today from the spark coach program.
I really haven't started a bucket list. I guess I should give this some thought though since I'm not getting any younger (true for us all). The lines of what I want to do and what other people want me to do gets kind of blurry. For instance, I have no desire to travel outside the United States, not that visiting another country would be anything but wonderful, it is just the actual travel part - being on an airplane for hours upon hours in a cramped seat with my long legs all folded up and knocking into the back of the seat in front of me. Breathing in the stale recycled air and hoping that the other occupants aren't ill and spreading their germs. Finally getting to the destination but being so tired and jet lagged that I can't appreciate the scenery. Nope, travel is definitely not my favorite. There are places I would love to visit but only if I could get to it by teleporting....oops, that isn't possible yet. Well, maybe someday - and even in my lifetime:)
So back to the bucket list....
Visiting the Harry Potter theme park in Orlando,FL.
Going zip-lining even though I am terrified of heights
wearing a bikini at the beach and being confident about it.
There are my three things.The goal I would go for if anything were possible? The confident bikini wearing! I have never worn a bikini (unless you count when I was a toddler) due to poor body image issues and a self conscienceness because of chest surgery I had as a kid. It should not have had an effect on me the way it did but my strange growth spurt didn't help the awkwardness I felt all through my teen years. Even though I was "thin" as a teen and I should have felt confident and proud - nope, I felt inadequate and wanting to hide.
What can I do to feel like that in my life today? I guess just do the visualization. I am thin and confident in my virtual bikini, strutting down the virtual beach, not a care in the virtual world. There is no sunburn in the virtual world and a game of beach volleyball starts with me serving. Oh what a fun day at the virtual beach.
Your turn - what is on your bucket list? What goal would you pick?
