Hey everyone,

This week's challenge is the bucket list challenge! There's lots of ways you can get involved in this challenge. If you already have a bucket list, share something that's on your list with everyone below. If you've already ticked something off your list, let us know what it is. If you haven't got a bucket list, now's your chance to make one. :) 

Something that's on my bucket list is to see the Northern Lights! 

I hope you enjoy this week's challenge :) 

If you're interested in getting involved in some of the fun things we have going on at The Mix such as suggesting a weekly challenge idea or writing something for the newsletter, let us know over on this form.

Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤
