What’s on Your Bucket List, Ladies?

Wow, what a wonderful Sunday it was!  Not only that it was beautiful warm sunny day at the end of the winter here in Australia but it was my first  ‘official’ bucket list day as well. Yey!

Two months ago I met with some other ladies at the “Bliss workshop”. With two of them we decided to meet once a month and have a ‘ladies day of bliss’! We just wanted to get together once a month and do whatever makes us happy. We started by just having brunch, chatting, laughing. As you see, just normal “girls” stuff. Last time we met the idea to create our bucket list was born.

Let’s do together the things that we always wanted to do but… didn’t have someone to go with us, didn’t have courage to do them, felt embarrassed for even wanting to do them,…you name all the reasons why we didn’t simply do things we would love to do.

And so we created a bucket list. It was surprisingly  easy to put together a list of activities we want to try, explore, experience and enjoy! In five minutes we had ideas for two years ahead! And it felt awesome!

For couple of last years I have dreams of me figure skating. I mean real night dreams. And I am an amazing figure skater in my dreams, you can bet on that! I have no clue why I have these dreams and what might that mean but I feel soooo good in them that I decided to check it out in the real life and put ice skating into my bucket list.

And here we are, ice skating in Sydney! Not many adults here and just few of them my age, probably no other woman over 40 as me. It’s more about kids, this place. It’s the right place for us to be!

We have so much fun! Just that special cold smell of the ice, fresh breeze on our cheeks; gosh, what an amazing feeling! I feel the same free spontaneous excitement as if I am skiing or dancing. I feel really high and at my place! It feels so good to connect with the child like joy inside  and just purely enjoy the moment.

I am not exactly a figure skater in the real world, with no surprise, but that doesn’t change anything on my awesome feelings, joy and excitement of doing something special for myself. And I am going to take some private lessons, well, just in case the amazing figure skater in me just needs to wake up. Let’s find out!

All right, what’s next? There are lot’s of other exciting things on our bucket list: kayaking, pole dancing, ballet class, painting class, pottery, …..

Life is great! What’s on your bucket list? Common ladies, find your Self and enjoy it!

Let me know,

Karolina Maya
