Alive and eager to live… @eyoalha

what propels you forward each and everyday… @wikiHow

“Passion is defined as having or being compelled by intense emotion; a strong fondness or enthusiasm. It is a stirring within that possesses your being in a euphoric manner, creating a feeling of connectedness with yourself and an assurance that you are following your life’s path. It is what propels you forward each and everyday, each and every moment, and gives you the strength to pursue all that inspires you.” – www.wikihow.com/Find-a-Passion-in-Life

#TBT way back to the 1st ever #jumpforjoy Feature! Christopher Michael King from June 11, 2012

Throw way, way back to the very first Jump for Joy feature! Im thinking it may be time to do a follow up… where are they now feature soon :)

“I am most joyful for the point in my life that occurred in 2009 that I now simply refer to as “the shift.” It was a turning point; the moment when I finally awoke to discover who and what I really am and understood the delta between that and what I was presenting myself to be. I am joyful when I am connected to other sentient beings of light and energy and when I am able to give and share myself completely and without hesitation and when any or every part of my being can be of service to others.

I am proud to support the US Special Olympics (http://SOSC.org), the Wounded Warrior Project as a Tough Mudder participant (http://ToughMudder.com) and organizations that assist animals in need.”

June 11, 2012 – Featuring Christopher Michael King

“View all problems as challenges. Look upon negativities that arise as opportunities to learn and to grow. Don’t run from them, condemn yourself, or bury your burden in saintly silence.

you will experience things that fringe over magic…

“Traveling the world is one of the greatest things you can ever do for yourself. It will shatter all illusions, stereotypes, and notions you have of the world and the people in it. You will unlearn, learn, and relearn things you will never discover through a book, a classroom, or a degree. It will humble you, shake you, wake you up. It will seep into your pores and find its way to your heart, and it will find it fast. The veil over your vision will come off and you will experience things that fringe over magic. And you will never ever be the same again in the best way possible. So do yourself a favor, and just buy that damn plane ticket.” – Satori

we summon the courage to make choices…

“There are moments in our lives when we summon the courage to make choices that go against reason, against common sense and the wise counsel of people we trust. But we lean forward nonetheless because, despite all risks and rational argument, we believe that the path we are choosing is the right and best thing to do. We refuse to be bystanders, even if we do not know exactly where our actions will lead.” – Howard Schultz

…the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great…

“…the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great. When you are seeking to bring big plans to fruition, it is important with whom you regularly associate. Hang out with friends who are like-minded and who are also designing purpose-filled lives. Similarly, be that kind of a friend for your friends.” — Mark Twain
