“We need the tonic of wildness…At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.”
― Henry David Thoreau, Walden: Or, Life in the Woods
There is much to be inspired by in life, but nothing so much as nature. In hundreds of ways nature can help raise the spirit, help us reconnect with ourselves and to the energy of life flowing through all of us. Although I am not a fan of redbull, I do have to give them props for helping push many athletic endeavors into the spotlight with their support. Chris Sharma is an impressive athlete, climbing places I have not the nerve to even go near. This video is both inspiring in that it shows that we as a species have a great capacity to flourish in many different physical niches, as well as showing a respect for the environment and its majesty. Hope you enjoy!
X-Ambassadors are one of my favorite bands, they have a great signature sound and really speak to me. In this song they drive us to be more, to realize that no one can take anything from us that we do not want to give up, that we can push ourselves to accomplish anything, that we can in fact, be giants.
