There is no bucket list!
Regular readers will be aware that there used to be a list of places, activities and other stuff here as part of my so-called “bucket list”. It might be surprising that I still have the page, even through there is no longer a bucket list here.
Well, let me explain. After spending some time creating the list and putting it up for all to see. I didn’t feel comfortable with it being here. I have never really had a bucket list before and the longer one sat on my blog, the weirder it felt for me to have one.
Go with the flow
As many will know, I am not so much the planner. I do plan, but not to the degree of knowing what will happen. Life is about ebb and flow and that is how I live it. I am about experiencing the things which come my way. Taking opportunities as they present themselves. I don’t like to have a pre-set list of things I think I want. (and probably don’t actually even need in order to enjoy my life)
At this moment in time, as I write this, I have all that I need. I don’t need a bucket list to complete things. In fact, I would be happy with what I have right now, with no sight of new things coming in.
Of course, that isn’t to say that I will or even want to stay this way forever, but right now I am cool.
How does that work for a blogger?
As we know, blogging often involves working with brands for promoting activities and products. I am not running from that, but now have a new approach to the way things will work around here.
I am minimising our kit and our entire home, so I am not going to be accepting things willy nilly. I will be carefully choosing the things I need (as I would when buying anything) which will then influence the brands I work with. If I’m on the hunt for some new trousers for everyday commuting or hiking, I will look for them and will share my need. If you have something which you think will meet my needs, then let’s chat. Let’s see how things fit.
In the coming months, I will be rejigging my ‘Work with me’ page and sorting through some other bits and bobs to align with my direction, so bear with me while things fit together.
But for now, I will be enjoying moments, activities and the things which come my way and tickle my fancy. No bucket list items, only life.
