92 Bucket List Ideas to Make This Year a Year to Remember

Updated: Apr 29

I first wrote this back in 2020 when most of us had spent the year in some level of lockdown, some more severe than others. As a resident of Western Australia we were not allowed to leave the state, and even residents had to apply to regain entry.

With travel at an all-time low many of us were getting itchy feet and wanting to stretch our legs and go somewhere new.

With a new year about to dawn on us, I’ve started thinking about all the things I haven’t done that I want to do, so I’ve compiled a bucket list. Some of the things on my list include travel so that may or may not happen in 2021, but I’m not going to let that stop me from adding it to my list of things I want to do, things I want to experience, and things I want to achieve… I will just have to trust that I will get to do them at some point.

I thought long and hard about the things I want to do, and I’m sure I will think of more as we go through 2021, but I wanted to start the year off with good intentions, a positive outlook and a fire in my belly to make 2021 a year to remember for the right reasons.

Some items on my list are quick and simple to do (e.g., I can take ten minutes to use the translator on my phone to learn how to say ‘thank you’ in 5 different languages) others will take a lot of planning and saving up, or time and dedication to learning a new skill. A lot of them mean I have to get out of my comfort zone to achieve them, which is great because every time we get out of our comfort zone we grow. We grow our minds, we grow in confidence, we grow our outlook, making us to go on to bigger and better things.

I spoke to friends and colleagues about what they would put on their bucket list, some inspired me to add them to my own, others I added along with quite a few of my own to the list below to help inspire you to get creative, to get thinking about what you want to do, experience, and achieve.

Big or small, writing down a list will cement your intentions. Studies have shown that people who write down their intentions are far more likely to achieve their goals.

So, what will you put on your bucket list for this year?
