Start living your Bucket list, not just making it

🇬🇧 At the beginning of each year we tend to want to restart. Refresh. We don’t realise the miles we took, and set new goals and new ways of achieving more. We tend to want to renew our life and not to look back on it. We don’t see our progress and accomplishments. For once, I would like to go back on these habits and to see what I’ve done. To realise that my wanting to keep thriving has already begun, already started and a lot of barriers were already busted before starting the year. So start living the bucket list, not only making it!

🇫🇷 Au début de chaque année, on a tendance a vouloir recommencer. Réinitialiser. On ne récapitule pas les kilomètres parcourus, mais on recherche constamment de nouveaux défis et du toujours plus. On veut renouveler une vie sans regarder derrière soi. Pour la première fois, j’aimerai  changer ces habitudes et parcourir mes accomplissements.  Réaliser que mon envie de révolutionner et de me révolutionner a déjà commencé, et que beaucoup de barrières ont déjà été abattues  même avant que l’année n’ai commencé.Donc vivez vos résolutions, ne vous contentez pas seulement de les écrire!

🇮🇹 Ogni inizio anno, ci ritroviamo di fronte alla voglia di ricominciare. Premere Restart. E diamo per scontato i chilometri già percorsi, e cerchiamo di nuovo sempre di più e sempre più sfide. Vogliamo una nuova vita senza guardare più indietro. Per la prima volta vorrei cambiare queste abitudini e fare un riepilogo dei miei traguardi. Capire che la mia voglia di rivoluzionare e di rivoluzionarmi è già cominciata, e che molte bariere sono già state abbattute prima dell’inizio dell’anno.Vivete le vostre le vostre risoluzioni, non scrivetele e basta!

My First Solo trip in Sweden

 

First solo travel

🇬🇧One of my first, of many set goals that I wanted to achieve in 2018 was to travel by myself. Maybe you’ll ask yourself: why this need to do so? Don’t you have any friends to go with? Aren’t you afraid as a female to go around by yourself? And I exactly went for that, For those same exact questions and to prove to myself that:

1) I can enjoy my own company and not be afraid to listen to my own thoughts.

2) I need to have this experience, it is as equally important as to experience travel with your loved ones and friends.

3) Yes, I’m a female and have to be conscious, but can’t live in fear.

Try it it’s fun.

🇫🇷 Un de mes premiers buts d’une longue liste pour 2018 était de faire un voyage seule. Vous vous demanderez sans doute “Pourquoi ce besoin?”. Elle ne peut pas partir accompagnée? Etant que fille elle n’est pas en apprehension de partir seule ? Et je suis exactement partie pour répondre à ces questions et pour me prouver également que:

1) Je peux être à l’aise en étant seulement en ma compagnie et que je peux être seule avec mes pensées.

2)J’ai besoin de cette expérience, au même titre que de partir en voyage avec sa famille, ses amis, ses être aimés.

3)Oui je suis une fille et je dois être prudente, mais je ne peux pas vivre dans la peur.

C’est fun essayez!

🇮🇹 Uno dei miei primi obbiettivi di 2018 era quello di fare un viaggio da sola. Ma uno si chiederebbe: ” Come mai questo bisogno?”. Non può partire accompagnata? Essendo una ragazza non ha paura di partire sola? E sono partita esattamente partita per rispondere a queste domande e dimostrarmi che:

1) Posso essere a mio agio in mia sola compagnia e che posso essere sola tra i miei pensieri.

2)Ho bisogno di questa esperienza, ed è importante quanto viaggiare con i cari, amici , famiglia…

3)Si sono una ragazza e devo essere prudente, ma non posso vivere nel temere.

è bello provate!

Read more, reflect more

🇬🇧We often tend to get stuck in our routines, in our ways because it is comfortable. We become less curious and introspective because it’s easier. I tried to counteract that. But how do counteract when you are involved with studies, a job, or when we never travel? We read. By living others’ experience, seeing others perspective and discovering more about ourselves reading about others’ feelings. It can seem time-consuming at the beginning but generates infinite food for thought.

🇫🇷On se coince dans nos routines, dans nos habitudes, parce que c’est comfortable. On tends à etre moins curieux et moins dans l’introspection. J’ai essayé de contrer tout ça. Mais comment contrer le mouvement en ayant des études, un travail, ou en ne voyageant jamais? On lit. En vivant à travers la lecture les expériences des autres, on découvre davantage sur nous mêmes. Cela peut paraître une perte de temps, mais cela procure de quoi réfléchir.

🇮🇹Rimaniamo nelle solite routine, nelle nostre abitudini, perchè sono comode. Non siamo più tanto curiosi ne introspettivi. Ho provato a cambiare questo andamento. Ma come fare quando abbiamo in ballo, studi lavoro o non avendo occasioni per viaggiare? Leggendo! Leggendo si scoprono esperienze altrui e scopriamo anche su noi stessi. Può sembrare una perdita di tempo, ma procura soddisfazione e materiale intellettuale.

First hot air balloon experience

🇬🇧” But does she ever sleep?” Hum, the answer is no. But seems nice though. Another longtime dream of mine was to go to a hot air balloon journey. To be able to experience flying in another way, to have a look of the city from above admiring the view. Contemplating while still having a sort of adventure and being comfortable being above in the sky with not much else besides you.

🇫🇷” Mais dort-elle jamais?” vous vous posez surement la question. La réponse est non, bien que cela paraît plus que sympa. Un autre de mes rêves était de faire un jour un tour en mongolfière. De pouvoir faire une expérience de vol autre que les vols de ligne, et de voir tout de haut. Pouvoir contempler le paysage tout en ayant une aventure dans le ciel sans rien autour.

🇮🇹”Ma  dorme? vi starete chiedendo. La risposta è no, benché l’idea sembra più che bella. Un altro dei miei sogni era quello di fare un giro in mongolfiera. Poter fare un’esperienza di volo oltre ai voli di linea classici e poter vedere tutto dall’alto. Poter contemplare i paesaggi , avere un’avventura ed essere nel cielo senza niente attorno. 

Writing

🇬🇧Writing is opening oneself towards the world. It is a raw process, that makes you be in touch with your deep thoughts and emotions. It is not easy. It is not a short process. But it remains fixed in stone, like a photograph. It helps clearing up your mind by laying it all on paper and create something new. I started in various forms and still continuing it with my blog!

🇫🇷Écrire, c’est ouvrir son soi au monde. C’est un processus qui nous permet d’être en communion avec ses pensées et émotions. Ce n’est pas facile, et ce n’est pas un processus court. Mais cela aide à aérer ses pensées de les étaler sur papier. J’ai écrit et crée en plusieurs format et continue aujourd’hui avec mon blog!

🇮🇹 Scrivere è aprirsi al mondo. È un processo che ci permette di essere connessi ai propri pensieri ed emozioni. Non è facile, e non è una cosa corta. Ma aiuta a liberare la testa spargerle sulla carta. Ho provato varie forme di scrittura e continuo tuttora con il blog!

    Traveling by myself is one of my goals too! It’s hard to decide where to go though.

    I’m so glad you are living your bucket list. I need to do more of the things on my bucket list. I have traveled all over the United States but I want to travel around Europe, Africa, Australia, and many other countries/continents. I really wouldn’t mind traveling on my own either. That way, I would be able to see and experience all of the things that I want without worrying about what other’s want to do and experience that might be different from what I want. I admire you for this!

    Not being afraid of your own thoughts resonated with me. I am super surprised when I found your site you translated everything into different languages

    Ah this is such a nice and positive post. My sister in law is actually going hiking tomorrow by herself for 10 days and I am super envious of her – she is so mega. Also my husband just did his first skydive on his birthday yesterday so that was a big tick off of his bucket list. I guess now it’s my turn to do something 🙂

    I so want to start to check off my bucket list. But its the location of the places that I can’t do it. I want to travel Europe and I’m in the United States.

    Let me tell ya, traveling alone is the best! You just go without having to wait on someone else or a group of people. Good for you on taking the initiative to cross off items on your bucket list!

    I wish I would have traveled alone when I was younger, before the family happened! Maybe someday that could still happen, but travel has been set aside for now. Riding in a hot air balloon is on my list though! Right now I’m finally getting around to reading, and going through a list of books I’ve been writing for years. You’re right, sometimes we tend to just think about it and not actually do anything about it!
