The 52 Lists Project // Week 48

How is it week 48 of 2018?! I can't get my head around it one bit, it'll be New Year's Eve before we know it!

This week's prompt is: "List the things you want to add to your life" which I thought was a really interesting one. I'm lucky to have a pretty full life - it's definitely not perfect but I'm really blessed in so many ways that it took me a while to think of things I'd like to add to it but here's what sprung to mind...

  • Adventure - The past few months have been very vanilla in that I've mostly spent them just going to work to do a job that's pretty mundane although perfect in that I've been on a three month contract and it's funding my travelling! But because of that and the fact that my life before this year has pretty much been entirely spent in full-time education, I'm really craving a bit of adventure and something different. It's handy that I'm off to New Zealand in two weeks then isn't it?
  • Fun - There's definitely going to be a theme to this list I can see it already. But, again, I want to mix things up a bit and make room for more fun and spontaneity in my life.
  • Different experiences - Ok this is the last travelling-related one I promise. But although I've lived a great life so far it hasn't been filled with a huge range of different experiences and I'd like to try some new things and see what I make of them in this coming year.
  • Education - You might think this is an odd one to stick on the end when I've just been writing about how I've spent almost my entire life in education but I love learning and there's always more to learn. The past few months I've been educating myself in different ways to the usual - through podcasts, books such as Why I'm No Longer Talking To White People About Race and even through some of the people I follow on Instagram. I'm learning how important it is to acknowledge my privilege and to make time to learn about and listen to minority voices and educating myself in this way is something I definitely want to keep doing. 

So those are the things I'm hoping to add to my life over the coming months. What kind of things are you looking for in yours?
