Things I love: September 2016

things I love

So you may have noticed that I haven’t been posting very frequently. Sorry about that. Life has gotten busy (side note: how do other working mums find time to get anything done? Hats off to you if you are one!)

Long-term might remember that I used to do a monthly ‘reverse bucket list’ post. It’s been quite a while since I’ve done one, but I thought I might do a ‘Things I love’ post instead to bring you up-to-date with where things are at in my world and give a shout out to some awesome things I’ve discovered recently:

Reverse bucket list: March 2016 achievements

reverse bucket list march 16

Well it’s been huge month and now the year is a quarter over! My baby girl is 4 months old which means she’ll be one before I know it. I’m still a little in shock about how different my life is from a year ago.

Anyway the end of March means it’s time for another reverse bucket list. Wondering what that is?

Well, you probably know what a bucket list is right? A list of all those things you want to do ‘one day.’ Well a reverse bucket list is the opposite. It’s about keeping a list of all the great things you’ve already done. It’s like a reverse to do list. Appreciate the things you have done, rather than focusing on those you haven’t.

I’ve found it such a beneficial way to actually take stock and learn to love the little things.

Reverse bucket list: February 2016 achievements

Feb 16 bucket listI admit I’m a little late with this one – March is half over and I’m only now just looking back on February! I’ve been on holidays and then sick though, if that’s any excuse.

If you’re new around here, you may not be familiar with my reverse bucket list. You probably know what a bucket list is though right?

If you do keep a bucket list, does it kind of make you both happy and stressed out at the same time? Do you wonder how you’re ever going to find the time to do all the things on your list?

Well a reverse bucket list is the opposite. It’s about keeping a list of all the great things you’ve already done. If you haven’t tried it, please do. It will make you appreciate things more. It will make you a little calmer. And it will make you realise you’re already doing so many great things! I’ve found it such a beneficial way to actually take stock and learn to love the little things.

Reverse bucket list: January 2016 achievements

Bucket list Jan 2016

I visited the Sydney Aquarium with my nephews and took this cool picture.

Can you believe the first month of 2016 is already over? Crazy right? My maternity leave is already a third over… that terrifies me. I had a weird idea that I’d get more done when I was on maternity leave, since I was home more, but that totally hasn’t happened.

Anyway, at the start of every new month I like to reflect back on the previous one with a reverse bucket list. You may not know what that is, but you probably know what a bucket list is right?

Reverse bucket list: December 2015 achievements

lola bucket list dec 15I debated whether to do a reverse bucket list this month. My ‘achievements’ seem small compared to previous months. As most of you know, I had a baby at the end of the November; so most of December I was busy just learning to be a mum!

Before I get ahead of myself, I should probably explain quickly what a reverse bucket list, in case you haven’t read one of my monthly list posts before. Most people know what a bucket list is – the list of all those things you want to do ‘one day’.

Reverse bucket list: October 2015 achievements

October 15 bucket listIt’s finally November – the month I’ve been waiting for all year! It’s the month I stop working for 7 months, and it’s the month I become a mum :) I’ve been working full-time in corporate communications since I was 21, so it will definitely be a major lifestyle change, but one I’m looking forward to.

Before I get too far ahead of myself it’s time to take a look back first at the month that was October with a reverse bucket list!

Reverse bucket list: September 2015 achievements

Okay, so October is almost half over… I really should have gotten this post out sooner. But time is slipping away for me at the moment and the days go fast. Just over a month and I’ll be a mum! It still doesn’t feel real, despite all the prep I’m doing.
