1. Say "Yes" to everything for one full day (Friday 3/28)
My boyfriend suggested that I extend my Yes Day, or perhaps revisit it later in the month. But my thought is, you snooze you lose! I recommend to everyone out there that it's not worth harping on all the missed opportunities. :P
2. Climb something new outside (Saturday 3/29)
The book, and the clinic, focus on mental training for climbers. In the clinic, we spent most of our time practicing falling, which is an essential part of the climbing process. Being attentive in our falling practice, and spending time falling safely, will help to ultimately reduce our fear and expand our comfort zone.
Getting back to the birthday challenge... luckily the clinic took place in an area of Red Rock that I had never been to in the past. I was able to get on a route that I had never climbed before. Challenge #2, check!
3. Eat an entire raw jalapeno (Sunday 3/30)
Challenge #3, check.... blehhh....
4. Watch a movie off AFI 100 Greatest Films list (Monday 3/31)
Today's challenge was to pick a movie off the AFI top 100 greatest films list that I had never seen before and watch it all the way through. I scanned the list and the choice was actually pretty easy. Following Citizen Kane, which I saw in a film class in college, is the #2 movie on the list: Casablanca. I can't believe I have never seen this movie! That being said, there are many classic movies on that list that I have not watched yet. One of the goals on my lifelong bucket list is to have seen every single movie on the list. At least I am one step closer now!
I was expecting it to be really cheesy, annnnnnd it was. But that doesn't mean I hated it. I enjoyed it a lot and it was actually a lot more clever and witty than I was anticipating. The story was sweet and lovely, but there was corruption and guns. Best of both worlds!
Challenge #4, check!
5. Grateful List (Tuesday 4/1)
Here is a snapshot of my list - although I'm sure it will get MUCH longer as the day goes on. There is so much to appreciate!
Challenge #5, gratefully checking off my list!
