People usually talk about how bucket lists are inspiring because they push you to do things you never thought you could do, but have you ever thought about how more inspiring a reverse bucket list could be? What’s that? Well, instead of writing the things you want to do, you write down the things that you’ve accomplished. The things that make you who you are. The things that make you, well, YOU. Nothing is better than that feeling. I’ve only learned about reverse bucket lists recently and I’ve decided to make one.
