If you have been following me for a while you will probably be aware of my Anti-Bucket Lists. If you haven’t or need reminding you can read all about it here but basically, when I was having treatment for advanced Colorectal Cancer I decided that when I got better I would flip the traditional ‘things-to-do-before-I-die-Bucket-List’ idea and came up with ‘The Anti-Bucket List’… these are things I am going to do because I’M ALIVE!
I think Anti-Bucket lists are different to New Years Resolutions because resolutions are more goals of the year like losing 3 stone (obviously this is on my list) or drink Green Juice everyday (also on my list), whereas the Anti-Bucket list are things I want to do and experience this year.
I think especially after or during something like cancer, it can be especially good to have one of two things to focus on that aren’t illness related.
A couple I have are…
- Take the children to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in the West End
- Visit Harry Potter World at Letchworth Studios (this has been on there for a while, I really hope that this year will be the year!)
- Visit somewhere new – This has been on my list the last few years but I think this will remain on my list forever…
So what are you putting on your list? What are you going to enjoy doing this year to celebrate being alive? Whatever they are I hope you have fun doing them and send you lots of love for 2017!
