Inspired by The Next Thing on My List, I said I would post my own bucket list (that I started in college, well before I read this book). And through some perusing to add spice to TNTOML post, I discovered the blog While on This Side. I decided January was the perfect time to share this with all of you, as the new year is traditional for New Year’s resolutions. (Here is BLT’s first #31bdc post.)
The first thing I stumbled across was the blog post in which she shared her “chocolate bucket list.” That’s what I said I’d do, but she put a different spin on the traditional bucket list: the list is like a box of chocolates (thanks Forest!). This is what she says…and I TOTALLY agree!
The great thing about this is not knowing how it will turn out. I don’t know if I will eat all of the chocolates, per say (taste-buds can change overtime)… And I may end up with more than one box of chocolates or perhaps even, chocolates from someone else’s box – because there’s something in there they don’t like or because they are such a generous person and would like to give me some chocolate… This bucket list will change (by having things added/removed) over time as it adjusts to my life and what’s going on and I’m fine with that. In the end, I want a bucket full of wrappers & some chocolate left for others.
But then I noticed something: The 31 Day Blog Challenge. And unlike some things I’ve seen people do (such as post “selfie” photos each day or something about their day on Facebook), this one had some meat to it – it wasn’t a challenge just for the sake of being silly, starting a trend, or following the masses. It has some meaning behind it, and there are some important tasks. As they said back in the day, it’s well-rounded and wholesome.
So, I’ve decided to do the 31 Day Blog Challenge.
For each day in January I am going to post different content for the 31 days, in addition to all of the normal postings. Each day is going to have a different theme, topic, or question.
How does this involve you?
