Wild Bucket List

The purpose of this list is to help break the unhealthy thought and behaviour patterns in my life of people pleasing, perfection, and performance.

They are behaviour experiments where I’ll track my thoughts and actions, accept them, and see if I can be more myself, more real, and more courageous.

A lot of the things on the list are things I’ve always wanted to do but have been too scared to do for fear of not fitting in with society’s expectations and being judged.

It’s about trying new things, stepping out of the comfort zone, and learning from the journey.

Some of it will be nerve-wracking but I think a lot of it will be freeing. And maybe one day I will feel comfortable wearing tiaras and tutus every day simply because they give me joy and I won’t care what people think.
