My word for 2017

I can sense you are on the edge of your seat wanting to know what my word is. Well wait no longer. It is ‘Fuck it’. While yes it is technically two words, this is my attitude for 2017.

Last year was stressful, busy and contained a lot of mum guilt. If you read my post last Monday about turning 30, you would know that this year I plan to make it more about me and not so much about everyone else’s needs. This is where my fuck-it comes in.

I will cut back on work and schedule my time more sparingly so I have a life from outside the house and more time with my family. But not only that, I will have more time for me and what I want to do (theoretically anyway). There are so many thing that I want to do and try, and this year they are going to happen.

skydiving | para glide | jump out of plane | tandem skydive

Totally not me but I have wanted to do this forever. It is on my list!!

As mentioned last week, I am putting together a 2017 bucket list and I will get it done and document it here. My only problem is that even though there are some things I want to do, I want to add more and step outside my comfort zone.

This is where you come in, I need your help coming up with some fun, interesting and affordable (within a few hundred dollars) things to do in Australia.

What should I add to my list? What would you put on your list?

    I love making a bucket list. I would like to go up in a hot air balloon.

    Well, you did it…conformed and rebelled in one…and even with the F word…mmmm. However, my thoughts are that if this helps you get the better balance in this one life of yours, I say GO for it girl!!

    Happy 30th! You are a spring chicky! It’s been a long time since I turned 30. I still feel 29 though.
    I like your words for 2017.
    I don’t have a term for this year, but I do have an attitude. After spending 2016 fighting cancer (and continuing treatment until April 2017), I am re-born! I have so much energy. I am going to use it to conquer the world!

    Love your choice of words. Gosh making a bucket list is hard and choosing something outside your comfort zone! My word this year is breathe. I don’t want to sweat the small stuff as much. I think this will be near impossible but I will give it a try!!! What about trying diving with sharks?!!
