Things I'm going to teach my children.

Buy local. Buy organic. Ride your bike. Walk. Listen to The Beatles, Sublime, Nirvana, Blink 182. Try to see the world from someone else's perspective. Try to see the world from ANY different perspective. Pay close attention to the sounds that surround you. Pay close attention to the scents that surround you. Be aware of your surroundings in general. Don't wear a bra everyday. Read things that challenge you. Watch things that challenge you. Love thy neighbor. Love one another. Choose the right. Feel the sun on your face. Enjoy the breeze across your cheek. Enjoy the simple things. Pretend you're living in a different era, a different decade, a different generation. Get lost in a story. Make eye contact with others. Smile at people. Try to connect to those you come across in life. Stand up for what you believe in. Imagine a world where everyone is at peace. Love John and Yoko. Never lose faith in your dreams. Love unconditionally. Don't regret falling in love. Put one hundred percent of yourself in to the music you love, in to the movies you love, and in to the craft that you love. Don't be afraid to go after what ever it is you want to achieve, no matter when you decide you want it. Don't preach (haha). Feel remorse. Feel pain, channel it towards something positive. Fall in love. Take pictures. Listen to Regina Spektor. Travel the world. Help others. Notice when people need help and take action. Learn by watching others. Let others inspire you. Go hiking. Make spontaneous decisions. Listen to your intuition. Believe.
