Minimalism

Minimising my Bucket List

The concept of minimalism is defined by the principle of removing unnecessarily things from your life. I’ve taken the concept quite literally, and I’ve started looking into aspects of things that I want to do;

I focused in on my Bucket List quite quickly; realizing that a lot of things on my bucket list were there because they sound good on my blog or make the list look better and longer. So the list has been critically reviewed and a lot of things have been cut off, but equally there have been additions because my views have changed and my desire to have more in life has become defined by what I want to experience over what I want to have as belongings.

Here is a copy of my new bucket list:
