Throughout 2013, even though I had a big chunk of not-so-nice ‘life stuff’ hit me – I still made a lot of my Dreams come true – living life the ‘bucketlist way’ is testament to the fact that it really works – it gets you to focus on the things you WANT to do – and takes your mind (even if momentarily, in the lead up, and on the day/s you are ticking something off your list) off the ‘other, not so good, stuff’ in your life. It WORKS!
There have been so many times this year that I have struggled to get through certain times, that I haven’t ‘felt like’ doing anything, that I just haven’t felt enthusiastic, that Ive just been plain exhausted, for months on end – my ‘life stuff’ was pushing me right down….but, as soon as I focused on making something happen on my list, or saw an opportunity in front of me, and started to make it happen…I had that delicious sense of anticipation once again – something ‘clicked’ inside of me, and I felt that awesome sense of passion and excitement build up – that’s one of the things I love about living life this way!
This year, if I just kept focusing on dealing with the ‘stuff’, and if I had said to myself ‘once this is all over, then I will go back to making things happen’…if I continued with that train of thought, then I wouldn’t have had these amazing, fun, awesome experiences this year! Making these things happen, has turned a year that had the potential to be ‘a year to forget’…into a year that I had some pretty incredible things happen, and to be grateful for, and some amazing memories to always remember 2013 by! 🙂 No, I haven’t had a huge ‘bucketlist’ year like 2012 was – that was truly mindblowing! lol….but I have had an amazing year, nonetheless. Riding a jetski, which I have wanted to do for as long as I can remember – and finally making the third of my ‘initial 3 dreams’ which Ive always had, happen – that day alone makes all the effort Ive put into making things happen this year (and I wont deny its been hard at times, with everything else that’s happened this year), well and truly worth it! That day alone gave me a day of absolute pure joy, excitement..and adrenaline (which Ive grown to love! lol). That, topped with everything else on the list which gave me joy this year – yep, I am so glad I made this year into what it was….rather than what ‘it could have been’.
Why wait…why not make 2014 YOUR year of Making it Happen!
Anything is Possible….when you ‘don’t wait’…when you focus on what you can MAKE happen – rather than what is happening TO you!
