My Impossible List

I'm not one for New Year's Resolutions however when I came across this idea called The Impossible List, I became a bit more interested in the idea of setting goals for myself.

I have tried the 101 in 1001 challenge before but never got round to finishing it. The main reason for this is that I began the list when I was in a completely different stage of life, in a different relationship, and the goals reflected that. When that relationship broke down, I was left with a list of goals that were constant reminders of where I wanted my life to go... and reminders of how it didn't work out!

I began writing a new 101 in 1001 list but my heart just wasn't in it. And that's when I happened to see someone post on FAcebook about the Impossible List. The idea behind the Impossible list is that it's a bucket list that is almost impossible to complete. Sounds ridiculous, but to me it is about constantly growing and challenging yourself. Once you complete a goal, you cross it off your list and replace it with a 'harder' goal. An example of this is if you want to challenge yourself to run 5K, once you've done it you can cross it off and add run 10k to your list. It's a list that shows your progress and celebrates the milestones of your achievements! You can read a little more about it at the original post by clicking here.

With all that in mind, I present to you my personal Impossible List:

  1. I've never actually heard of the impossible list before but I actually love the idea of it, I'm going to have to write one for myself. Will be so satisfying being able to cross them off as well!
