Exciting Ideas to Add to Your Bucket List
Have you ever danced on a bar or naked in the bathroom mirror? There are scary yet exciting experiences that every woman should have at least once in her life. Here are 20 exhilarating ideas that you should consider adding to your bucket list.
Movie Date with Yourself
There are women out there who feel awful going to see a movie on their own. We're here to tell you that it's quite liberating to take yourself out on a movie date. As an added bonus, you get to choose whatever movie you'd like and there's no one hogging all the snacks.
Ask a Guy Out
Times have changed since our parents were dating. As scary as it seems, it's okay to walk up to a fine-looking fella and ask him out - some men even enjoy it. Just remember, confidence is key.
Get a Bikini Wax
Some women have sworn never to let anyone go near their sensitive area with hot wax, but trust us, it makes a difference. When you feel how soft and smooth it turns out, you'll think twice before picking up another razor. No pain, no gain, right ladies?
If you thought seeing a film alone was liberating, you have to take a solo vacation. Visit your hotel spa, dine with the locals and be sure to let loose a little. You may even meet a few new friends during your excursion.
Ride in a Hot Air Balloon
Get over that pesky fear of heights and take a ride up to the clouds just before sunset; we promise you'll enjoy the view. This is a lovely outing to start off a girls night or a date night. Take up a bottle of champagne, if allowed, and bask in the beauty of your city with a loved one.
Escape a Toxic Relationship
Whether it's a spouse, girlfriend or family member, if there is someone holding you back and bringing nothing but negativity to your life, it's time to cut ties. It's not easy to let people go, but in order for you to grow, you need to be surrounded by positive energy.
Buy a House
It's no secret that purchasing a house can be one of the scariest, most tedious experiences of your adult life, but it's also very rewarding. Stop procrastinating. With the proper savings plan and a good credit score, you'll be able to purchase your own property in no time.
Take a Self-Defense Class
Many women tend to take a self-defense class after an attack, but how many of us think to take one as a preventative measure? It's important to know how to protect yourself, especially if you're living alone. Don't be scared that you won't be able to keep up, instructors are used to working with beginners.
Reveal a Juicy Secret
Is there a secret you have been dying to reveal for years but you haven't been able to muster up the courage? Call someone non-judgmental that you trust and confess your secret. You'll feel much better when you finally talk it out.
Ask for a Raise
Asking for a raise isn't as scary as it may seem. Set up a meeting with your supervisor and prepare to lay out all of the contributions you have made to the company. Once your presentation is complete, confidently and politely ask for a raise. If you truly deserve it, there's no reason why you shouldn't receive one.
Apply to Be on a Game Show
If you're one to host regular game nights at home or you can't get enough of those Family Feud marathons, you should apply for the real deal. Don't worry about whether you'll win or lose; it will be an amazing experience either way.
Dance on a Bar
Some of us never got the chance to get up on a bar and dance with a hot guy when we were 18. Good news - it's not too late. When the music moves you and the moment is right, build up the courage to jump on the bar or even a table and shake your groove thing.
Bring Your Secret Fantasy to Life
We all have one: a fantasy that we'd like fulfilled by our future spouse. Share yours with your partner, no matter how kinky or silly you think it is. It will bring you both closer and certainly shake things up in your relationship.
Try an Exotic Dish
Break out of your comfort zone and try something you would never dream of eating before: eel sushi, jelly fish salad or grilled octopus. What's the worst that can happen? If you hate it, you never have to eat it again. But you actually may end up loving it.
Pitch a New Idea to Your Boss
If you have a new idea that may contribute to your company's growth, we say go for it. Make sure your idea is well researched and presented professionally. Even if your boss turns it down, he or she will see your initiative, and you'll stand out from the crowd.
Have a Boudoir Photo Shoot
Get a few pieces of sexy lingerie, loosen up with a glass of wine and work it for the camera. Every woman should take part in a photo shoot that makes her feel sexy and free. You don't even need to show it to anyone; it's okay to do it just for you.
See a Therapist
Visiting a therapist does not mean there's anything wrong with you. Sometimes we need to talk about a problem with a stranger in order to receive unbiased feedback. It's that person's job to leave judgment at home and guide you towards the answers you're looking for.
Ditch the Devices for 24 Hours
You'll be surprised at what happens when your eyes aren't glued to your phone all day. It's easier to live in the moment when you aren't checking Facebook every five minutes. Alert your friends and family that you're taking the day off from your devices so they don't worry when you're unreachable.
Quit and Follow Your Dream
If you're going to work just to collect a paycheck at the end of the month, you may need to reevaluate your career choice. Before you quit your job, you'll need a plan. Figure out what career will make you happy, achieve the necessary qualifications and chase your dream. It's never too late.
Dance in the Nude
The next time you get out of the shower, don't rush to get dressed. Blast your favorite song, stand in front of a mirror and dance away. Many women tend to avoid looking at themselves naked because they don't like what they see. It's time to accept that you're beautiful just the way you are and love the skin you're in.
