My Challenge List

As we get older we start to believe that some things are just impossible for us to achieve. When I turned 30 (2010), that seemed to be a year where I allowed myself to believe I now had limitations. I have found that though I have made it over many obstacles in my life I have also set up plenty along the way. This list contains the things that I wish to accomplish before I enter middle age, some items are lifetime goals. This list may continue to grow as I am continuously inspired by people doing great things and reaching their goals. I will be making updates down below and will be blogging about the bigger achievements as well. This is something I am extremely passionate about yet let be put on the back burner because I allow everyday life to get in the way. I plan to achieve these things while being the best husband and daddy I can be.
