Would you like to comment?

  1. You've got some great goals! Thanks for sharing - this challenge is an awesome way to push yourself out of your comfort zone

    1. Thanks so much, it really helps keep me motivated

  2. #30 is definitely something i'd like to do but it's a bit daunting at the same time for me. well done, you on all the achievements!! happy 2020.

    1. You should 100% do it! Get some and keep a hold of them for a while until you're ready to give them out

  3. This is such a great bucket bucket! I love how it's a good mix of at home (e.g. reading) activites and more adventurous ones (e.g. swim in an infinity pool).

    1. Yehh I tried to keep some very achievable so I don't get too disheartened but also some to push me outside of my comfort zone
