Make A Reverse Bucket List To Boost Your Self Esteem
I know many of you have heard of this new trend popping up in your Pinterest feed and online. It’s called a reverse bucket list. Say whaaa?
Many of you have made a bucket list, and intend on checking all your crazy ideas off your list. But have you ever considered creating a reverse bucket list?
It goes like this.
Create a list of all the accomplishments in your life. Start with the big stuff and narrow it down to the small stuff!
If you’re having a difficult time thinking of ideas, let me throw some ideas out there for you!
Hobbies you’ve perfected?
Exciting things you’ve tried?
Where have you traveled?
What have you made?
Tasted exotic food and didn’t throw up?
What have you given to others?
Mental or emotional triumphs?
Don’t forget the little successes!
Have you kept plants alive?
Do you know how to cook your favorite meal?
Do you have happy animals or children?
Pay your bills?
