50 THINGS TO DO ON YOUR BUCKETLIST AFTER LOCKDOWN | 2020

This pandemic has kept us all on our toes, hasn’t it? It stripped us all of our happiness because we aren’t able to explore the places we thought we would this year, we aren’t able to meet our friends and check-off all those amazing restaurants and cuisines we thought we would try, and we surely can’t even meet our family because apparently, we can’t risk them getting sick just because we’re in need of some picnic or adventure.

However, things are slowly beginning to settle in and I think slowly, the flights and other means of transportations will open soon too. Meaning, there’s still hope for us to complete our bucket list but of course, it wouldn’t be the same. There will always be the masks, the gloves, the sanitization, and the six or twelve feet distance. 

But that’s okay. At least you will be able to relax your nerves and give some beauty to your eyes, right? It’s really been so long so here I am today with a bucket list for everyone to use or to give you all an idea if you’re thinking what to do after the lockdown is over. (hopefully)

10 Quotes that will raise your Confidence

Do you ever just feel as if you’re no good? As if the world doesn’t understand you? Well, you’re not alone. 

We all feel that way sometimes. Some more often than others. But we can’t let that stop us, can we? We can’t let our lack of confidence stop us from achieving our dreams. We must fight the fear in us, raise our head and walk tall on this earth. Not proudly but confidently. It’s what matters the most. What doesn’t matter and what you shouldn’t care about is other people’s thoughts. Their thoughts will only bring you down and you don’t want that.You want to win so you better read these quotes which helped me become confident or at least gave me an insight and a head start. 


Quote 1: People will judge you no matter what you do. Might as well do what your heart is telling you to. 


Quote 2: Self-Confidence is the best outfit. Rock it and own it.


Quote 3: Confidence is the ability to feel beautiful without needing someone to tell you.


Quote 4: Own who you are.


Quote 5: Confidence has no competition.


Quote 6: Don’t regret the past. Just learn from it. 


Quote 7: It’s okay not to have everything figured out. 


Quote 8: Don’t ignore your own potential.


Quote 9: The sooner you start believing in yourself, the sooner you’ll start seeing the results. 


Quote 10: Inhale confidence, exhale doubt. 


Do not let anyone crush you or break you. You’re on your own and remember, you don’t need anyone else but you. So you must be strong, you must keep on fighting and getting up no matter how many times you fail or fall.


You must be like an Avenger!

9 Things I Like About Myself

Everyone loves a thing or two about themselves. And they feel proud about it. It’s also good that you know what you like about yourself because then your true nature will automatically shine. The more you know about yourself, the more confident you will be.

There are so many people out there that have no idea what they like about themselves. They have a hard time figuring out and that’s sad because you are the only one who knows better about you. No one can tell you what you like about yourself and what you don’t. It’s up to to choose and if you still haven’t, then I suggest that after reading this post, you put down your phone or laptop, close your eyes and just think about this topic.

Ask yourself, “What do I like about myself?”

And if the answers don’t come to you even then, then God help you, kid.

Anyway, here are 5 things I like about myself :-

  1. I’m not Selfish
  2. I’m soft and kind (especially to old people)
  3. I’m passionate about the things I love
  4. I’m always thirsty to learn new things and to gain more beneficial knowledge
  5. I’ve a strong heart
  6. I try to be as positive as I can be
  7. I always smile even though I go through a lot
  8. I have a high pain tolerance
  9. Lastly, I’m kind of innocent which puts me in trouble from time to time

Try to get to know yourself because that’s what will shape you to become a better and confident person.

I hope you find your way and I wish you all the best.

Until then,

Peace neighbors,

Things that give me Hope

Sometimes, I lose creativity. I get all gloomy and irritated for no reason. I get all hyped up over little things and sometimes I just don’t know what I’m feeling or trying to feel.
But I’ve realized that its at that time, that seeing or understanding small things which we thought were trivial, gives us hope. It sparks our imagination, it banishes the darkness we were feeling and helps us smile, helps us become artistic and brings out the poet hidden within us.

Let me list a few things that give me hope when I’m going through that arduous stage.

Charity
Waterfalls
Praying
Panda’s
Kim Jongin
Small towns
Fields
Café’s
Forests
Stars
Dreams
Antique stores
Beaches
A good book
Rain
Gardens
Night life of cities
Northern lights
Lighthouses
Parks
Sound of rivers
Campfire
Aesthetic quotes and images.
Poetry
Letters
Typewriter
Red Moon
Autumn
Realizing that someday we’ll die
Cats
Talking to Grandma/Grandpa
Hot Chocolate with a pinch of cinnamon

Museums
Reading knowledgeable books
Libraries/Book stores
Patience
Art
Journaling
Comments and likes from my readers who support and love my works
Mint chocolate chip ice cream
Chocolates
Bucket Lists
Polaroid photos
Reading in the dark

These are a few things that I recall giving me a lot of hope, emotions and inspiration.
What are the things that give you hope?

One Way (A Poem)

 

There’s only one way.
It would be hard, I know, but I also that I’ll survive.

Road to success doesn’t come easy,
There will be thorns, fire, hail storms and wars,
But deep inside, I know I was born to walk this path,
This dangerous road that leads to satisfaction.

One way,
No left, no right,
Just straight ahead I walk.
Killing the regret, the sorrow, and the pain,
Holding hope, faith and trust’s hand.

I cry, I scream, I lose self-control and patience,
But now, here I am, standing with the crown.

It was my belief that brought me here,
Just like an exodus, a path without fear.

I am now at the top,
Filled with joy and pride,
I never thought In my dreams that I would come this far,
With only a single path.

-To those who are on that ‘one way’, You can do it. I know you can.

The Golden Snitch (A Harry Potter Poem)

“It’s not time yet, they won’t let me free.
The players are yet to get ready, yet to come to the vast field.

I’m stuck in this box until they are ready on their brooms,
Ready, set, go! And I’m free, invisible to all, flying round and around.

Two players from opposite teams try to catch me,
I’m excited, but I’m afraid that one or the other would see—

Alas, my freedom would be gone, I would have to wait until I’m once more set free.

So I try to run fast. Faster and away,
from the extended arms that come my way.

I’m golden, I’m bright,
that makes my chances of getting caught, more likely and tight.

Left, right, up and down, I dodge,
Time is slowly running out on the giant watch.

A few minutes left, and no one has caught me,
perhaps this is my chance to be wild and free?

By cheers and wind, I’m overdosed,
I go through the loops, the hoops, and the goalposts.

Hah! A few seconds are left, no one can catch me–
Damn, I’m stuck, why can’t I move forward? Why can’t I reach that tree?

Darkness surrounded me so suddenly,
My heart beat rose, and I realized,
That I was caught by somebody.

I fell in gloom, in utter despair,
I don’t want to be locked up in the box again,
I want to always keep breathing this fresh air.

Boisterous screams, and thundering claps sent a shiver down my spine,
Headmasters and Professors, each celebrated with a glass of wine.

I was raised high and shown to the people that I was defeated,
My pride and my joy were shattered to bloody pieces.

Locked again was I in the box all alone,
They think I’m special, but woe! They can’t hear my cry, my unceasing moan.

When will I come out again?
When will I be free?
Perchance in the next game,
I’ll be released from the pain,
and escape to the sea.”

– inspired by the Golden Snitch.

The Most Important Thing in Life

I think the most important thing in life is to have strong relations with your Family because in the end, they are the ones who’ll save you from your distress, who’ll guide you to the right path, who’ll give you the love you need and who’ll go to any extent to help you. Family means togetherness, love, happiness, sorrow and contentment. They give you peace of mind, they give you hope, faith and the most important thing in life, inspiration to help you move on to your next step. Their support is what makes you stand.

Money won’t be there with you all the time, but Family will. If you have them, then you don’t need to worry about poverty because they’re enough to make you rich. They’re enough to give you a life you’ll be satisfied with. So, please, don’t go breaking relations with your family because you won’t know it now, but you need them as much as they need you. They are the pillars of your life, the heart to your body and the tranquility to your mind. They give you everything they have but in return, all they at the end of the day is a small hug or even just a smile on your face.

Family is truly the most important thing in my life and without them, life becomes difficult to survive.

So, my lovely neighbors, what Is the most important thing in your life?
Don’t forget to share your thoughts in the comments.

See you in my next journal entry~
