I’m all about lists right now, because they take up slightly less headspace and are easier to write out for a blog post. Hence, another list.
I suppose I never liked the idea of a bucket list. Not that I was completely opposed to it, but I just think that if you want to do something, you should just do it. So I’m going to hesitantly call this a bucket list for your sake, though my list is actually a list of things I want to do before I get married. And that would have been a very long blog post title, so bucket list it shall be. If you want to write one, go for it. Set yourself a goal if you want – a timeframe. Bucket list: before death. Things to do before I get married: before marriage (clearly).
I’ll explain the significance of this. I believe that if I’m to get married, my identity, worth and affirmation will come from God. Thus, if a break up occurs, my identity won’t be shaken. Sure, I’ll hurt for a little while, but I won’t go around thinking there’s something wrong with me, because in God I know that there is nothing wrong with me.
And all of these things on my list are things that, for me, are a part of my identity in God. Most are creative or fearless, as God has revealed himself massively to me in these areas. So I’m going to do the following ten things as a pre-married woman who is doing these things for herself and for God and not to, I don’t know, impress someone or gain approval. These are me-God-things.
- Lead worship
- Sing karaoke in front of other people
- Learn guitar like a boss
- Knit something funky
- Pay off everything I owe
- Dance in the rain
- Sew a dress
- Love God and let Him love me
- Finish my goal of writing a blog post every day for a year
- Go to an art gallery on my own
Who knows, maybe I’ll add more to this list. But I will for sure blog about the moment I cross each item off my list.
Think about something you want to do, and do it. Within reason, but still it stands.
Have a good one, campers,
