Hi everyone! 💚 Today I’m undertaking a very daunting task…it’s time to revisit my Autumn bucket list! (Incase you’re wondering it’s daunting because this means my favourite season is over in my eyes 😭😂). Perhaps I shouldn’t say “it’s time” as I am in fact doing this early as with Christmas coming it feels like it’s Winter anyway so I’m ready to face a whole new set of goals. I love love LOVE 😲 Autumn so I’m disappointed to see it go but onwards and upwards to better things, I shall find positives in the new season (which shouldn’t be too difficult with all of the festivities going on 🎄). For now let’s look back on my goals and access how I did with them:
Discover new podcasts/keep on listening to those that I already love!
I discovered loads of new podcasts but I didn’t dedicate a lot of time to listening to them 🙈 Half a goal achieved there! 😂 I think this will have to be a silent unwritten goal that I will just carry with me forever!
Start a business venture
This goal took a sharp turn as I was so sure I wanted to make it happen and now I have other plans but I may very well revisit it in the future and make it happen (whereupon I can announce what it actually is! 😂).
Go to local events + explore more places
I did! This kind of ties in with the very last goal on this list. I went pumpkin picking at Ballycross Apple Farm, had a haunted experience at Glenart Outdoors (both of which you can read about here) and went to see the Wild Lights in Dublin Zoo! (There is a post about that here) All three events were in places I’d never been to before as well 💫
Yet again I cooked savoury dishes and didn’t even think to bake 🤦 Hold on a minute, I did make a pasta dish and put it in the oven! Does that count as baking? 🤔 Anyway, I still want to make this happen but I don’t think I will put it down on my next list of goals as I get the feeling it will continue not to happen if I do 😂
Make the most of each and every day whenever possible + try something new
Since turning 21 I have noticed that I have been attempting to make the most of each day and I finally have an idea of what I want to do which I wrote about here. I think that this new phase is encouraging me to make the most out of time as I want to look back and remember that I was doing something whenever well and able and not just sitting around feeling bored. All three events I listed above were new to me and I have also built up the courage to go shopping by myself and make phonecalls on the odd occasion too!! This is big for me as I HATE phonecalls 😂 my heart went mad both before wondering how it would go and afterwards trying to figure out how I did it but in the moment I was fine strangely enough! I think in these little ways that are quite big to many people (including me!) I am growing as a person and this makes me very happen to see 🤣 its not like people say “it will get easier the more you do it” though, for me it stays as anxiety-inducing each time but the feeling I get once on the other side of facing my fears is worth it ✨
Thank YOU for reading 😉 Did you set yourself any goals in Autumn? How are they going/did they go? Let me know in the comments below and have a wonderful day! 💚
