I am one of those people who like to do things on time and enjoy a sense of satisfaction in completing my work. I have always been this way. I do not like to keep things to be done later. So, on my 21st birthday, when I reviewed my bucket list, I knew what I had to do.
This is an account of the things I had done that year and how I had managed to tick off everything from my bucket list in a matter of 6 months. So, here it goes.
The first thing that I ticked off from my bucket list was joining a 10-day vipassana course. I had always wanted to do this. But somehow, I had been delaying this for a while. I knew that this was the right time to do it. And so, without giving it much thought I signed in for a vipassana course. The course was really interesting and I can say that I had a really good start to that year.
This was the month I spent with my girlfriend, Jenny. I had always wanted to take her on an adventure trip. This was the time I could finally do it. I booked a ticket from MakeMyTrip and off we were to the hills of Manali for the adventure of the year on the Valentine season. That was in a way my valentine gift for her.
This was another interesting month that year. While I was busy with some new projects that month, I managed to get some time off and go for the floating tank experience I had heard so much about. It was just awesome and I can’t describe it to you how I felt when I was in the tank. The feeling was surreal.
This was the month when I slowed down a little and started figuring out my expenses. I didn’t have much to spare money to fund the things on my bucket list. That was when I happened to know about instant loans. I surfed the internet and came upon this website: www.instant1hrloans.com. I figured out my way to get funding for my next travel. I left for Singapore on the 15th of that month. I wanted to explore the place and I did exactly that with the loan money.
After returning from Singapore, I was ready for the next thing on the bucket list which was to spend three nights in a jungle. It was risky and that is what had driven me to do it. I packed my stuff, went to the nearest jungle near me and spend three days and nights there alone. It was one of the most liberating feelings in the world. I was a different person when I came back from the jungle.
Now was the time to get some social work done. I had once thought about being part of a social NGO but for some reason, that wasn’t happening. I kept delaying it and I didn’t want to delay it any longer. So, I decided to be a part of the NGO that was working for child welfare in my city. Working as a volunteer there, I learnt that life has a lot to teach us when we open our mind and heart to the world around us. I made some amazing new friends during my time spent working there.
