Feeling insanely inspired by the way Jedidiah Jenkins' words breathe his desire for wringing out every last beautiful second of adventure during his days on earth. I took time to handwrite the transcript of this four minutes and thirteen seconds video into my journal, allowing the letters to form thoughts that made my heart beat a little faster. How simple it is for us to get sucked into routine, to realize that all of a sudden it's October again and this life is going by faster than we'd like it to. And how many of our days are spent learning something new or finding beauty in a new place? It starts with a perspective change and then proceeds with the doing. You can choose to make your hundred years on earth seem like a thousand...

And a few more select words from Jedidiah because they're that good...

“I believe in the goodness of humanity, and I find human beings so beautiful. I think it’s our self-hatred that creates feverish little monsters that go around hurting people. If we understood that we are all lovely and lovable, we would hurt fewer people.”


"A tidal wave of fire. Only to please your eyes. I googled 'why do leaves change color' and I expected some important answer. Maybe animals need to see the color for some reason. Maybe the trees process the last bit of winter sun through yellow and red. No. It's because the green chlorophyll dies away and what is left are the other pigments. Meaning, the beauty serves no purpose. Somehow, that makes it all so much more beautiful to me. Like God of the Magnificent Process of All Things planned it, if only to give those creatures with eyes and a mysterious love of beauty one last show before the world falls asleep for winter."

“A dream is something in your spirit that you need to produce, say, or do. A goal is what you think the manifestation of that dream is. People feel like they fail when they don’t reach their goals, but sometimes your goals are only a rung on the ladder of figuring out your dreams.”
