5 aesthetic summer bucket list ideas to try this summer
I recently realized something as I was walking through our cherry orchard.
Summer is only three months long.
When I realized this I stopped and gasped, I had so many things I wanted to do! So many plans – and only three months to fit it all in.
How was I going to do it?
I decided to write down all my summer goals and then pick the five most important ones that I would prioritize and accomplish. That was a lot harder than it sounds, my list was quite lengthy and ended up taking up a whole notebook page. Looking through it, I found that some of my goals were going to help me later in life and somewhere just a ‘spur of the moment’ kind of goal. In the end I did end up picking five.
Ready to find out what they are?
1) Dance in the Rain
This is a big one for me. I have always loved the feeling of a gentle tickle of rain on my face after or during a hard day of work. The cool splash of a droplet hitting my nose as I look up at the cloudy sky and praise God for such a beautiful world.
2) Go to a Summer/Bible Camp
I had the wonderful pleasure of completing this goal recently. Camp is one of the times of my life that I have felt most connected with God, it was a time of change and growth for me personally. But whatever your reason is for going to camp know that there are a lot of people who don’t get that opportunity. So make the most of it, have fun and enjoy your time there.
3) Take a Hike or Walk
This can be a fantastic way to relieve stress or just to clear your head. If you want an even more aesthetic feel to your walk you might want to consider taking it in the woods or the park. I have always found that if you listen to the birds chirping and the bees humming you will calm down and relax quite fast.
4) Get Together with a Friend
Getting together with friends is a fantastic way to get to know each other and a wonderful way to feel more connected. Especially with Christian friends when you get together you can share prayer requests and Bible passages that really resonate to you.
I know, you are most likely thinking that summer is full of relaxation and that is what you do during the summer to prepare for the school year. But how many days do you not have something planned? How many days are you giving yourself to recharge?
In conclusion take time to rest and have fun! There will only ever be one summer like this one so make the most of it!
