Life is too short to be cooped up waiting for something bad to happen. It’s time to keep my chin up and think positively. A little ambitious, but that’s just what I’m like!
One of the only places I have always wanted to see is America. It looks like such a beautiful place full of ideas and opportunities. I think it’s important to always have a place in mind when writing a bucket list, when you think big, bigger things happen.
Put a deposit down on a house
I’m hoping that if I start saving money now, in five years I will have enough to buy my own place. Something small with a little garden and a fireplace. Perfect!
Overcome my phobias
If anyone out there suffers/knows somebody that suffers from emetophobia or panic disorder, you will know that it completely takes over your life. I am currently trying my best to get rid of my phobia so I can do all the things that it’s prevented me from doing
Finish my course & have my own business
As mentioned in my ‘About Me’ page, I am currently studying Wedding and Event planning. After finishing the course I will receive a full qualification and the education and knowledge to start my own business as a wedding planner!!! EXCITED!
Be more healthy
Slimming world has helped me lose a lot of weight over the past few months and I am almost at the weight I want to be. I eat healthily now and I have quit smoking. My next steps are to re-join a gym and start up Yoga or Pilates. I’m not the most active person at the best of times but I’ve heard exercise really helps with anxiety. So I need to get involved with a few more active clubs and get fit!
Raise more money for Cancer Research
Every year I run the Race for Life to support Cancer Research UK, I usually raise about £100 which is a great personal target. It’s usually held on a day in the summer and I always run with my friends so it’s a day of great fun and for an absolutely fantastic cause. I want to raise so much money that it really makes a big difference in the research. I want cancer gone!!
Write a book
Or finish one…I should say! I’ve got tons of half-finished stories around my bedroom and loft. I love writing, I don’t know whether any of my stories are any good, but it’s so much fun to create anything I want with a pen and paper and let my imagination run wild. Sometimes I’m writing away and read it back and think, what the hell am I on about?! It would be such an achievement to actually finish one.
In five years time, what do you hope to achieve?
I hope you enjoyed. Thanks for reading.
Lots of love, Laura x
