Ah, fall! Fall is hands down my favorite season. As a lifelong hater of hot weather, I love when the cool crispness of fall starts to settle in. I love apples and pumpkins and Halloween. I love scarves and boots and blankets. I love the cozy feeling that fall brings with it. Last year I created a Autumn Bucket List, and even though I never really did a formal recap of how many of the items I accomplished (By the way, it was 8 out of 12.), I had a lot of fun with it. So I decided to make another one this year. There’s a few repeat items (hiking, drinking pumpkin beers, pie!) because, well, those are fall classics. They must be done. But there are a few new ones too, many related to house projects I want to get done sooner rather than later. So, without further ado…
How about you; what’s on your to-do list this fall?
Yesterday morning I realized there’s less than 1 year until I reach the end date of my Mission 101 list. I also realized there’s no way I’m going to accomplish all the remaining items in the next year. Some of the items I just don’t think I’ll have the funds to accomplish. Other items, I’m just not interested in doing anymore. As much as I love the idea behind Mission 101, 2.75 years is a long time. It’s hard to predict where you’ll be, who you’ll be, and what your situation will be in 2.75 years.
I was a completely different person 2 years ago. The things I wanted and expected from my life were entirely different. Two year ago, I was coming out of a less than stellar relationship and about to embark on a new one that I never saw coming. (Though, if you ask some of my friends, I was pretty much the only one who didn’t see it coming…) Anyway, the point of this post isn’t about how much I’ve changed in the last two years.
The point is that I’m junking my Mission 101 list…sort of. I still love the idea behind Mission 101: creating a list of goals and dreams and all those things you want to do but can never seem to find the time for, but rather than applying the 1,001 day time frame on it I’ve decided to convert it to an ever evolving bucket list with mini bucket lists for different time periods along the way.
And I’m kicking it off with an Autumn Bucket List. Here are a few things I’d like to do before winter rolls around. I might not get to the all, but I’m going to do my best!
How about you? Do you have any fall bucket list items?
