I’m nearly 50 and I feel much younger, much more confident in myself than I did at 30 … and 40. I didn’t feel like having a party for my 40th but for my 50th it was a nagging desire that eventually resulted in me booking a venue last week for 60 or so of my friends and family to celebrate with me.
Bucket Lists have become much more popular recently and an article I read this weekend prompted me to think about mine a bit more. Like many today, mine is a series of lovely photographs on Pinterest but mostly it is in my head, stored under ‘I really should get round to doing …’
Of course with my children grown up and soon to be leaving me (my son is nearly 19 and my daughter is nearly 16) my fifties will be a lot more carefree with less commitment so maybe it is time to take my Bucket List seriously and actually get on and tick a few more bits off.
Here are some of the things on my list:
Next week I will share with you the list of things I have already crossed off!
