I'm all about the ideal.
"I’ve put a lot of thought into this and here’s what I think. Yvon Chouinard and Joel Salatin for Pres. and VP."
"Pieces of patience. Life is a puzzle. You know you’re working toward something, you just don’t know what yet. But in this game you’re not given all the pieces in the beginning. The pieces come with patience. And with each piece you become closer to realizing you’re ultimate place in this world. And once you get that final piece, you know. Your purpose becomes obvious and now it’s just the play of putting together the puzzle of life. With all of its rights and wrongs. You can enjoy the game as much as you let yourself. Just know that when it’s complete, its complete. How will you put together your puzzle? Will others ooh and aah at your work? Will others be inspired? Have you left the puzzle pieces and the whole in better shape than when you got them? There it is in front of you. Your pieces of patience made into your life."
"Bouldering is one of those sports that is so similar to life itself. You can get to the same problem that left you frustrated the last time you saw it but with a fresh perspective and renewed enthusiasm you can achieve it fairly quick. But you move onto the next problem and by the end of the day you end “failing” yet a different route. But its up to you whether or not you head back to your car with a sense of fulfillment for the problems you did solve and the opportunity to continue to challenge yourself the next time. Or you can focus on the fact that you failed and have a miserable rest of the day. Focus on the good. Focus on the opportunity. Because failure is merely the universe giving you the chance to improve."
"They say you can’t have the life you want. Fuck ‘em. You’ll show them."
"There is absolutely no better workout for you, both mentally and physically, than rock climbing/bouldering. Other than maybe yoga…yeah yoga does it too."
