My Impossible List

 Creating health in my life has always been a strong suit. But it is also not the only apple of my eye. 
I believe we are the product of our own choices and actions. We either make conscious passes towards a life well spent, or we don't (growth v.s. fixed).


I have created this page to highlight the choices I make in my life: to experience the world, make lasting connections/relationships, learn everything I can in this world and be the best I can be.


Up until now my "bucket" list of experiences, things and people had been compiled as a list in MANY note forms: in the back of text books, note taking apps, and the likes. The problem is this list up until now had been set to be completed... never, in the future some how and some time. It wasn't somewhere easily accessible and so I often forgot about it and re-started it many times. I wasn't PLANNING and MANAGING my deepest desires very well.

To fix that, I’ve created my impossible list. I got the idea from Thomas Frank, who in turn played on the concept by Joel Runyon, who created the world’s first impossible list and defined the difference between it and a regular ‘ole bucket list. Put simply, the impossible list is an ever-evolving list of experiences that build upon each other, help others as well as yourself, and implore you to take action. This is my public and accountable list, which is ever-evolving.
