my anti-bucket list

 

If you are looking for an anti-bucket list, then you have come to the right place. Here you will find a list of 101 THINGS I ACTUALLY DON’T WANT TO DO IN MY LIFE.

 

 

If you are the goal-oriented type, you may sit down and write a bucket list – all the beautiful things you would love to do during your one precious life.

Now if you are lucky and determined, some of these goals will get ticked off. Other people just lose their list or forgotten what they once upon a time dreamed of.

 

I on the other hand think it’s just as important to think about the things you DON’T want to do in your life.

 

So if it’s hard for you to sit down and think about creating a life you love, why not start right at the beginning and pinpoint the stuff you definitely don’t want to do or have?

And this is how my ANTI-BUCKET LIST idea was born.  Honestly I believe it’s just as important to know what you don’t want in life as it is to know what you do want.

 

So without further ado, here is ANTI-BUCKET LIST – 101 THINGS I DEFINITELY DON’T WANT OR NEED IN MY LIFE
