My Impossible List

My Impossible List

My Impossible List is based on a movement started by Joel Runyon over at Impossible HQ. I first read about it over at College Info Geek and really connected with the concept of it. Joel describes the list as a challenge. It’s not about settling for what’s possible in your life, but instead striving towards goals that you didn't think possible, and growing as you achieve them. 

This will be a lifelong working document that I add to, change, tick off and elaborate on as I pursue my journey. 

It’s meant to be a fluid document that changes as you do, and a record of what you’ve done and still wish to do. I’ve included a few of my fun/miscellaneous goals in here, not necessarily big challenges, but goals I want to complete nonetheless.
