Reverse Bucket List: what I’ve already accomplished

I love making lists. To-do lists, travel bucket lists, weekly and monthly goals lists…the list goes on and on (pun somewhat intended). I’ve noticed a new type of bucket list going around the blogging world: a reverse bucket list. Of course there are many things I want to do in life, but there is also a list of amazing things I’ve already done. These are things we should celebrate and be thankful for, which is why I decided to write my reverse bucket list.

  • (2011) Traveled to Italy, France, Spain and Monaco in high school. I got to travel to eight cities, try new food and explore beautiful sights.


  • (2011) Learned a third language—Italian.
  • (2012-2015) Met incredible friends in college that I hope will be my bridesmaids one day.
  • (2013) I created this blog, Blissfully Brunette.
  • (2013) Met my boyfriend, aka the man of my dreams.


  • (2014) Studied abroad in Italy during college. Traveled to several cities, lived the (almost) Italian lifestyle and discovered my faith.


  • (2014) Began grad school my third year of college. (I will complete my Master’s before my 22nd birthday.)
  • (2014-2015) Had two amazing internship opportunities with fashion websites: CollegeFashionista and Her Campus.
  • (2015) Graduated in three years with a B.A. in Journalism and Mass Communication and a minor in Spanish. (Thank you mom and dad!)

  • Oh… I love this Kiara! What a wonderful idea. In college I made a list of lifetime goals surprisingly I’ve done many of those things, traveling, graduating college, impacting others for Christ, teaching, administration, getting married… Although we have struggled with infertility and I still have things on my bucket list accomplish, what a wonderful reminder to look at the things we’ve already been blessed to be a part of. You’ve inspired me today! Thank you.


      I am so grateful for your kind words on this post! I’m so happy it could inspire you. Sometimes, I think we tend to focus a lot on the future, without realizing what we have already accomplished. We need to be a little more kind to ourselves. Yes, it’s okay to have goals and plans, but it’s okay to remember and reflect on all that you have done in a period of time (or lifetime). Thanks so much again for sharing some of your favorite reverse bucket list moments.

  • LOVE this! Such a positive idea and it makes you think about everything you’ve accomplished and done so far. Yes girl!


      Thanks so much for your comment! I’m all about sharing and spreading positive vibes for other bloggers. Enjoy!
