So, this is my first ever blog post!
At first I didn’t think I’d ever get round to writing a blog even though I’ve always wanted to. I didn’t know what to write about for my first blog posts but I realised it would be best for me to explain the reasons for me even creating this blog and why I aim to carry on with it.
The last few years have not exactly been kind to me and my family and I decided I couldn’t deal with dwelling on negatives anymore. So I wanted a change of thought and lifestyle.
Starting from January 1st 2017, my new years resolution was:
I’m going to live my life, without any questions, if I want to do something, I am going to do it.. you’ve only got one life to live after all hey?!
So from that point onwards I decided to stop re-thinking certain choices and to just go with my gut instinct. I decided that I wanted to create a bucket list that I could keep adding to and changing so that I had certain goals that I could finally get to do. Certain points on my bucket list included :
- Go Travelling
- Visiting the natural wonders of the world
- Start up on an online writing blog and carry on video blogging!
And many others were included in the list. I have small things that were also included on the list that could come down to making a stranger happy or feeding the homeless. In other words.. My bucket list carries on extending. So, I decided that whenever I would stop to re-think over something I’d rather just do it and see where I ended up. And this is where I am.. writing a new blog! Another point on my bucket list done!
With my travelling point I decided to take action and decided to buy a scratch map to keep track of all the incredible countries in the world that I have travelled to already and to continue adding to it until most of the map is colourful and complete. The image below shows what the scratch map originally looks like when you first buy it, I recommend buying one to anyone who reads this. It really puts into perspective of how much of the world is truly unknown to you and pushes you to take a chance and travel to the most unexpected places.

I decided then to scratch in the map of the countries I had visited already and now I have a lot of scratching to do until I complete it!
Some of you may relate to this, some may not. But the aim of this blog was to show people that we think to much and never really do the things that make us happy. Whilst some people dream of doing certain things with their lives others are out there doing them. So be the person who doesn’t over think everything, and be the person who is booking the next flight to Paris or Spain or Japan!
So! My first blog was a bit of a jumble of words but I hope you get the idea!
Let the journeys and experiences begin!
Until next time..
