Today our blog post is from our newest Social Media Intern, Sam Watson. He talks us through his Bucket List and gives us advice on how to create your own.

When people ask me what’s my aspiration in life instead of saying to be rich or something, I give this “To live a life that is not ordinary”. One of the ways that I do this is by having a physical bucket list and don’t worry you need to be near to kicking the bucket to have one.

This year my goal was to snowboard my first black run (hardest run at a resort…literally vertical) while on my now annual winter holiday. Well as I was on the chair lift up to where the black run began I thought to myself “look how steep it is, it’s got bumps bigger than me” and “That’s it I’m going to die”. However I did not die, it only took me an hour to get all the way down and the biggest achievement I only cried a bit…. However I had crossed off something my list and was full of confidence and could say that I have done a black run on a snowboard, an experience I can take with me and remember for the rest of my life.

This is just one experience and in the past I have swam with dolphins and sharks, learn to ride a motocross bike and much more because I have a physical reminder to do these things and not let the monotony of everyday life take over.

I believe you should all have a bucket list and my three tips are: You should always hand write it, try to cross one thing off a year and you should have long/short term goals so that every year you feel like you have done something on your list.

Make your own life extraordinary so when you are close to kicking that bucket you can say you experienced a lot of what life has to offer and have no regrets. Create a Bucket list today you won’t regret it.

Next year skydiving.
