Starting a New Year’s Bucket List ✨

So, what is a bucket list, really? If you’re new to the term, no worries. A bucket list is something that literally anyone of any age can start and do.

Think of a bucket list as a compilation of items that you’re looking forward to doing. This can be simple actions, unique things, fun ideas, or even food that you want to eat.

Bucket lists aren’t anything that is “required,” but they are full of things that fit what you want to do. Your bucket list is your bucket list. It shouldn’t be a carbon copy of anyone else’s because then you wouldn’t be true to the things that you’re hoping to accomplish.

A bucket list can be as simple as one item or a list, like the printable you’ll find here.

What is included on this bucket list printable?

This printable is ready for you to start filling in the blanks! You’ll get to write out where/what you want to under these bucket list items:

New Beginning Books

Everyone knows that once the new year rolls around, it’s literally the perfect time to start fresh. Along with your bucket list, you can also read a few inspiring books that can help you on your new journey as well.

The great thing about having books to use as motivation is that you can enjoy the pages at your own speed. Some people will gobble through the entire book all in one sitting, while others might like spreading it out over a few days.

It’s up to you how you want to read – or maybe you’re the type of person who wants to read a book over and over again.

These books listed below are great options, so choose a few and enjoy!

If you can find a great book that motivates you to have a new beginning, use that inspiration to complete your bucket list for the year. The two can absolutely work together – and be positive in so many ways!
