I’ve been following Joel Runyon of ImpossibleHQ, and I find what he does truly inspiring.  So instead of settling what I view as comfortable, I decided to follow his advice and make my very own list of impossible things.

It’s time to challenge myself and put it out there.  This is a list of things that I thought I could’t do because 1) I was afraid to 2) I didn’t know how to, but overall 3) I thought it was impossible.

This is my list of impossible things.  Feel free to follow my journey by subscribing in the form in the right sidebar.
