#Blogtober18 Day 23 – Wishlist for the Future

Blogtober18/ personal

During October I am taking part in #Blogtober18, where I write a blog post everyday for the whole month. I can’t believe we are already 23 days in… I am loving doing this project so much! I’ve kind of fallen in love with blogging all over again. Mandi over at Big Family Organised Chaos is hosting a linky each day where she also gives a prompt for us to write about. Today’s prompt is ‘Wishlist for the Future’  so I thought I’d share a list of things that I have on my wishlist…

  1. Get married.
  2. Eat at a Michelin starred restaurant.
  3. Go White Water Rafting.
  4. Drive a Jet Ski… preferably somewhere hot.
  5. Shower under a waterfall… again preferable somewhere hot.
  6. Go Whale watching.
  7. Rent a glass igloo in Finland to watch the Northern lights.
  8. Ride an Elephant.
  9. Watch the sunrise and set at a beautiful beach with my other half.
  10. Soak in the Hot Springs in Iceland.
  11. Float in the Dead Sea.
  12. See a shooting star –  I have never seen one!!!!
  13. Get a tattoo… just a small one.
  14. Take the kids to visit Father Christmas in Lapland.
  15. Take the kids to Disneyland.
  16. Go Zorbing on water.
  17. Move to my perfect home.
  18. Spend a night in a proper tree house.

Mostly I wish for everyone around me to have a happy, healthy and long life. I wish to spend lots of happy times with my family and just generally be happy. I’ve spent so much time struggling with depression and right now I finally feel like I have overcome it – I know it can creep back in but I’m feeling hopeful that I can stay in the light for a while. I don’t need lots of things to be happy but I do need people, connections and adventures. So I hope for a future filled with those things 🙂

    Great wish list! Go for the tattoo! And yes, going to Lapland is a big one for us too, I’d love to go while my children are young enough to still believe!

    I love your list! I’d love to take the kids to Lapland too! It seems so pricey though!

    Lovely post! I hadn’t done any either until I got to Disneyland on the list. I also want to watch the northern lights from an igloo in Finland

    I love this list so much. Many, many things that I would like to – if money was no object! It would be great if you could tick some of these off.

    What a beautiful list.. I began daydreaming as I read each one. Going to Lapland, spending a night in a tree house and getting married would be on mine to.

    That is a great wish list! I would absolutely love to rent a glass igloo in Finland and watch the Northern lights, definitely one on the bucket list! I hope you get to do all of these 🙂

    It is great to have a wish list. I have to say the Northern Lights and Whale watching are high up
    on my list too. I also love the idea of a little tattoo, but it would have to be small and meaningful as I know I would get bored of it.

    Get married would be top priority on my list too! We just need to get it done, we keep setting it further back because things get in the way or money gets tight. Right now we’re hoping for next July! I feel like I should write a post like this! It’s needed to keep goals in check!
    Much love, Caitylis x x
