The PrettyGreen Bucket List is Back
(that’s where everyone at PrettyGreen gets £100 to do something they’ve always wanted to).
It doesn’t seem like a year ago that we started our 1st Bucket List. Sometimes it feels like a lifetime and others just a bat of an eyelid. We live in a world that makes us feel like time is just a blur, that there’s never enough of it for us to do the things we’ve always wanted to do, but the reality is, only we can take the time out to look at the world around us and ensure we’re doing the things today that we’ve always dreamed of.
The Bucket List is back to inspire us, it’s back to scare us, and it’s back to help us do something that we’ve always wanted to do. We hope when you look through the list it helps spur you on, to write something down and do it.
We’ve got one life, let’s not waste it wishing we’d done the things we dreamed of on holiday, or spent the year living a vicarious existence based on other people’s experiences. Let’s jump in and seize the opportunities we have before us. Reality TV in 2013 isn’t something you watch at home, it’s the video clip you share with your friends showing you achieving something special.
And that something special, is something special for you. Whether that’s learning to dance, learning to fly, running a marathon or simply learning to read (ok that last one doesn’t count). Either way it doesn’t matter.
Here’s to an amazing and inspiring 2013.
