Why You Need A Creative Bucket List & How To Make One

Updated: Mar 21, 2022

Has someone ever asked you what your hobby is and you didn't know the answer?
Have you ever looked at someone else and wished you could be born with their talent?
How about this, have you ever wondered what your passion is?
You are not alone! This used to be me!
In this post I am going to talk about how to discover your talents, find new hobbies, discover the thing (or things) that you're passionate about, and how to stay excited about them.

And if you are sitting there thinking, "Cortney, I don't have any talents," I'm going to stop you right there! Everyone on this green Earth has talent. It's just a matter of uncovering it!

This will be a post with a little motivation, a little goal-setting, and a lot of creative inspiration. Are you ready to find a hobby that sets your soul on fire? Here is what we will be talking about today:

Bucket List Ideas

What You Need To Know Before You Make A Creative Bucket List:

  1. You will not love everything you try and your list will not be set in stone.

Do you see where I'm going with this? The point of trying new things is to discover what you like to do, not what you are immediately good at.

  3. This should be a fun process. Yes, you might get frustrated with some of these bucket list items. Some things might be a complete disaster, but your attitude toward this should be light and fun. A failure is something to be celebrated and when you are struggling, it means you are growing. Attack this list with happiness in your heart and a desire to learn and you can't go wrong.

  4. Know Your Why. Go deep with this. Be honest with yourself and ask yourself "Why do I want to make this list?" It's okay to have many reasons you want to find your talents and hobbies. I've found most of the reasons I started a list, revolve around my own self worth and how I view myself. I also get a small high from checklists. . . So, think for a minute, what's the reason you're reading this post right now? Keep that reason in your heart as you tackle each item on your creative bucket list.

What A Creative Bucket List Is And What It Isn't:

What It Is:

  1. It is a list of things that you want to do, try, and learn.

  2. It consists of attainable, concrete goals or accomplis
