Motivational Monday - "A Life Well Lived"

by Cory Dudley

 

May 1st, 1963, Jim Whittaker became the first American to reach the summit of Mount Everest. Though he and his Sherpa, Nawang Gombu, ran out of oxygen before reaching the top, they managed to achieve their goal and planted an American flag at the top.

In this short film, Whittaker examines what a "good life" is composed of. Thought-provoking and inspirational, he describes that nature is truly the best teacher in the world. You cannot help but learn things every time you step out of your comfort zone.

To live a life well lived, I think, is to give back. To enjoy as much of the planet as you can. To learn as much about yourself so when you check out, you know pretty much that you've done everything you can. To be as good at something - at anything - as you can, and to contribute to the longevity of the planet, so that your children and their children and their children will be able to enjoy as much as you do on this magical, wonderful planet...

Welcome to Quail Ridge


Many superlatives have been used to describe the architectural style of the homes and design of the Quail Ridge community. "Urbanist", "neo-traditional", "pedestrian friendly" and "front porch community" all have merit. Whichever term is used, the feel of this quiet and peaceful community remains tranquil.

The neighborhood is bordered to the South by Quebec Avenue, to the North by Quail Road, to the East by South Emery Street and, to the West by Main.

Located in the Southernmost part of town, Quail Ridge has perhaps Longmont's best access to shopping, entertainment and City attractions with the Recreation Center and Museum directly across Quail Road. Transportation routes to other area cities are easily and quickly accessible.

Evan Scheider's short film showcases the beauty of Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. Breathtaking images are made even more striking with expansive views of falling leaves, stunning pano-shots and miles upon miles of golden treetops.

 

 

 

His video inspires a cozy feeling that can only come with a change in the weather, as autumn chills settle in. Drastic colors pop unexpectedly and in the end, you have soaked up all the feels of fall without even leaving your couch - though we do encourage you to do some cold weather exploring this season!
