My Impossible List

My Impossible List

I saw this idea from College Info Geek and decided that I’d craft my own and put it here.

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 mine, which is, of course, ever-evolving.

This page is very personal, but I keep it here on as an ever-present reminder to all who would take heed of it (like I did from Thomas).

“Take the time to slow down and remember everything good in your life, everyone that made an impact, changed you and try to grow from understanding where you came from, and how far you are willing to go”. P.S., 2018

Current focuses:

After a number of challenges faced at the beginning of 2020, ranging from personal, business, local (Zagreb earthquake in March) and global (the pandemic), right now my focus is on myself. This focus continues in 2021.
