Crafty Jaynes Bucket List
Have you ever wondered what your future will hold, what your life would be like in say 5 years time?
I once read this somewhere, can’t remember where:
‘if you don’t change something now, everything will stay the same’
how true that is, I often think about this saying and it gives me inspiration to do something to change my future.
It isn’t something you thing about very often, but lately I have been thinking what my future will hold, so I decided to make a bucket list.
Whether I do everything on my bucket list is another thing, but five years is a long enough time to get it done. So, I will have a go, if anything it will give me some goals to go for, it will also tell you a little bit about me, so here it is:
Bucket List for the next 5 years
Visit New York and see the ground zero memorials – I would think I’ll probably burst into tears just being there. I remember it like it was yesterday, I just sat there watching the TV as it happened, I was so shocked, still am, that people could do those terrible things to each other, I still feel so much sadness for the people involved in that terrible event.
Visit Las Vegas & Grand Canyon – well I really would like to go to these places for a holiday. The Grand Canyon sounds magnificent I have seen in on T.V. but I would like to see it for real. Las Vegas sounds like it is full of life and excitement, I could also wipe No.3 off my bucket list.
Get Married – Well I have been living with KJ for 27 years now and we are not married, I think it is time, I will have to convince him, maybe we could tie the knot in Las Vegas 😊 sshh keep this one between us…
Lose weight and get rid of Diabetes – I know this seems really boring, but I have been trying for years to lose weight and I just can’t. If I can get my weight down it would help my diabetes no end and maybe I could come off all my diabetic tablets. I am not overly overweight 12 stone 10 lb but I would really love to get back down to 10 stone, don’t sound like a lot but for me it is. I have a whole lot of clothes that don’t fit me, I think oh I will have that and slim into it, but it never happens.
Publish a Children’s Story Book – My sister in law and I have been in the process of writing a children’s story for a few years now and it is going nowhere due to me not getting on with the drawings. She has written the story and as I am an Artist I will be doing the illustrations, I would really love to finish this project within the next 5 years.
Podcasts – I would love to set up a section for podcasts, it would be hard as I haven’t done anything like this before, but I listen to a lot of them and think I would like to make some on crafts.
Get a tattoo – I would like a little tattoo, I don’t know what of, but something colourful. I have to lose weight first, because I think if I have a tattoo then lose weight it might look uck.
Art Holiday – I definitely would love to go on an art holiday and paint plein air (outside), but I have never been brave enough in case someone is watching over my shoulder. I would have to be quite confident to do this one.
You Tube – I want my you tube channel to reach 10,000 subscribers over the next 5 years, wow that’s a lot, but if you are going for it you might as well make it big.
Diplomas – Have ten Diplomas in all kinds of subjects, I am already I am currently half way through a Blogging Business Diploma, I haven’t finished this yet. I do already have one Diploma, it’s a ‘Pet Portrait Diploma; which I got from the ‘London Art College’.
Well there it is, it is going to be costly to do them all, but my hopes and dreams for the future are set in stone, if I can achieve a few of them I will be more than happy.
Have you got or done a bucket list, if so share it with us we would love to hear about it…
