Reverse Bucket List

  • Idea
  • Personality


Such a great concept! It makes you wonder why you haven’t thought of it before. Kara’s personality shines through as she talks about her own experience writing one.

So what’s different about a reverse bucket list? Well, a reverse bucket list is where you sit down and write down all of the things that you have already accomplished! It’s as simple as that! (Or so I thought)… Instead of dreaming and planning, it requires reflection and gratitude. You wouldn’t think it would be hard to list your accomplishments but often times we tend to belittle our own achievements, thinking that they are not as grandiose as we would like or as exciting as other stories we have heard.

Thoughts & Suggestions

Write as if no one will ever see it. This list is for you so as Kara realized, “I began to realize that just because an item didn’t sound like a big deal to others, that didn’t mean it was not special or important to me.” If you have experiences you’re grateful for or that impacted you, don’t be shy to put them on the list. The longer the better!
