Eternal Sights; Spotted Mind: My 30-by-30 List

Eternal SightsIf I were to write a letter to myself from 10 years ago, I’ll probably say that I didn’t turn out as I dreamed, but I didn’t turn out as bad either. And hopefully, I would be able to write something better 10 years down the road – from my future self to my now. I know it may sound incredibly early to have a 30-by-30 list but I guess it does not hurt to stay early, since I probably have only less than five years to go?
