“Challenge make you discover things about yourself that you never really knew…”
Summer’s here and the fun has just begun. There’s nothing better than getting outside especially when you’ve been in hibernation mode throughout winter (I’ve partially hibernated…not gonna lie). After taking a bold move to Virginia, I was inspired to create a challenge, thanks to my workplace called “THE LIST.”
Why a challenge you ask?
First off, a challenge pushes someone outside their comfort zone. Everyday we live a life of comfort and luxury. We go to school or work, eat, sleep and the cycle keeps on going. So, this challenge is created to break that cycle for a short period of time and hopefully for you to share your own personal growth.
Second, I created this challenge in hopes of inspiring everyone to get outside and explore their beautiful world. Because let’s face it, we make excuses whether it’s “I’m too busy,” or “I can’t afford shit.”
To prove you are actually doing the challenge, I want proof. Email me photos/videos or post on my Facebook page. Trust me. This isn’t going to be easy at first, but remember, a challenge puts YOU out of your comfort zone.
So with that being said, here is a list of challenges to get you inspired on your journey:
Travel to somewhere new
This is a no-brainer. For those who don’t know where to start, I encourage you to explore your own state/country. Maybe there are places you’ve been dying to go, but you’ve never had the time.
MAKE THIS YOUR OPPORTUNITY!
So far for this year, I’ve been to Virginia, a state I’ve never been to before. This summer, I’m headed to Asheville. Even though I’ve been there before, I’m visiting my friends and we’re going to explore new hiking trails, which always makes this one hell of an adventure.
Are you a daring traveler? Try going to a new country.
Make this a challenge to push yourself to get off your couch and explore our beautiful world. Let’s go! ✈ 🚗 🚢
Learn a new language
Ok, this is one that I created to push myself. But…feel free to add this to your challenge list. So far, I’ve been wanting to learn ASL for quite a while. So now’s not the time to wait…I’m starting NOW!
Want to learn Spanish? German? Japanese? French? English (for the non-native speakers)? DO IT!
“Learning another language is not only learning different words for the same things, but learning another way to think about things.”
Try a new activity you’ve never done before
If you’re like me and love adventure, then this should be a piece of cake. For those who don’t, then no worries. This is why it’s a CHALLENGE so get out there and push yourself out of that COMFORT ZONE whether it’s riding a camel in a desert, swimming with sharks, going whitewater rafting, skydiving, surfing, etc. Remember I want picture proof so get out there and #optoutside.
“The 24 Hour No Phone” Challenge
This one is gonna be super difficult for some because let’s face it: we’re constantly on our phones. And I mean A LOT! So I dare YOU to lay off your Android or iPhone for 24 hours. Of course without a phone, there is no way to actually show picture proof. So I want you to share this experience whether it’s through a Facebook post or video on whether this challenge has changed you or not, POSITIVE or NEGATIVE. And be BRUTALLY HONEST.
I’m looking forward to this feat and I hope you do too. And feel free to comment down below what you think about “The Mini List Challenge.” 😎
