just ask bucket list

If you’ve had a look around this blog, you’ll know that I am a big fan of bucket lists, goal setting, writing your ambitions down – whatever you want to call it, basically planning to achieve in Oprah’s words “your best life”. I have a list of 100 things that I would like to do in this lifetime. I think it is important to acknowledge your goals and writing them down often helps propel them into reality.

With the arrival of my second child, I feel even more strongly about achieving items on the list. After all, the closer I am to being who I want to be and achieving ‘things’ off the list, the happier I will be and in turn the better a mama I will be.

Just Ask want you to stay around for a good long while so you can cross epic activities and life-changing achievements off that list of yours. That’s why they’ve developed a test that could save your life—the BRACAnalysis test—by informing you about your chances of getting breast or ovarian cancer.

– from the Today’s Mama website

They are running a competition at the moment in conjunction with Today’s Mama and in order to take part, I just need to share 15 of the items off my list. In no particular order, here are 15 highlights on my bucket list:

  1. Running in a woman’s marathon. There is something about running in front of spectators that is so invigorating. I think running as part of a sisterhood would be a-ma-zing!
  2. Write an award winning book. I have a lot of stories to tell, both fiction and non-fiction. They say that the difference between someone who has published a book and someone who hasn’t is that the published author just writes. This blog is a first step in getting to that book for me.
  3. Take drawing lessons. I think I have it in me to draw, I just need some guidance.
  4. Drink a bang lassi in India. India has always been on my list of places to visit. What’s not to like? The friendly people, the food, the meditation and yoga…oh and a bang lassi to end the day :)
  5. New Orleans for Mardi Gras. I’m not sure I want any of the beads, but I’d love to drink up the atmosphere.
  6. Ride a camel. Not sure where, maybe Abu Dhabi. I’d love to do this even though some have said the stinky bumpy animal rides are overrated…I’d like to find out for myself.
  7. Visit FAO Schwartz and enjoy it as if I am a child. Maybe even rent out the whole place and have a pyjama party for a few friends, make ice creams and dance on the massive piano.
  8. Travel from Marathon to Athens in Greece. Get an understanding of the history behind the epic running event.
  9. Ride a gondola in Venice. If I could I would travel more often. I’ve been to Cinque Terre in Italy and loved every moment of it. Venice I think would be classy and romantic
  10. Drink cognac in Cognac.
  11. Sip champagne in Champagne.
  12. Have a pint of cider in Ireland. Most would say Guiness, but I’ve never been a fan of the stuff.
  13. Become a yoga instructor. The ultimate would be to become a Bikram yoga instructor. The experience of fully dedicating myself to the practice for 3 months in order to become certified is scary and exciting at the same time.
  14. Go on African Safari.
  15. Skydive.
