Since we don’t have cable, I’ve been watching a lot of public television. Good stuff too, Julia Child, a show called Motion about outdoor adventures, and the Katie Brown Workshop. I recently came across Roadtrip Nation, which is a series about college kids who get an RV and travel around the country seeking out and interviewing people who followed their dreams.
Here are some inspirational tidbits from the piece.
“It depends on how you look at failing. Never doing what I wanted to do is failure to me.” The Knux
“Your heart is like a GPS. The GPS system in your car will tell you which way to go but it’s not going to turn the car for you. If your heart is telling you to turn left, you better turn left. A lot of people wait until it’s too late to listen to their heart.” Van Taylor Monroe, Sneaker Artist
“It sounds silly to say you profit from your mistakes but you do. When you make a mistake and you go in the wrong direction, it will help you somewhere.” Kary Mullis, Nobel Prize Winning Chemist
I’m in a new place. My heart and mind are open and challenged and I’m constantly inspired. I told a friend that I feel like I was an abandoned plant for the past couple of years and now someone picked me up and put me in the sun and gave me water.
