Spontaneity means to be in the moment…

“There are very few joys in life greater than spontaneity. Spontaneity means to be in the moment; it means acting out of your awareness, not acting according to your old conditionings.” – Osho

Do what you really want to do…

“Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.” — Ella Fitzgerald

A little message for the day from @eyoalha Play!

A little message for the day –

Play. It keeps you young at heart. Let loose your ideas. Deconstruct your limits. Be open. Create your way every day. Smile at everything you can. Its all for you. This life is made for you, by you. Use it for yourself. Make it what you want. The imagination of play is your tool. Play today. – Eyoälha Baker <3

I was feeling like creating some photos and had no one lined up to shoot the other day, so I started looking for somewhere to do some selfie jumping photos and came across these power lines in a clearing in North Vancouver. Sometimes the least likely places provide an interesting backdrop… so I did a series of selfie jumping photos here. Fun!

Enjoy your day today.. get out and play!

Jump for JOY + Murality Kickstarter has begun! @jumpforjoyphoto @kickstarter #jumpforjoyphoto

Jump for Joy Photo Project + Murality.org join forces!

I am excited to announce an exciting art project that I have been invited to be a part of… I will be creating a large scale Public Art Mural with a collage of enlarged jumping photos.

I am now raising the funds with a Kickstarter campaign which is LIVE as of today :)

I would be ever so grateful if you would consider making a pledge, and or spreading the word to anyone who may be inspired by my work. The last day to pledge is May, 31, 2014.

Your contribution will assist in creating this unique large scale Mural of Jump for Joy photos of people all around Vancouver.

I am aiming to make more than my goal amount of $5000. My aim is to cover materials/costs to create the mural and also enable me to compleate my Jump for Joy! Photo book of 1000 pictures of people jumping for joy around the world.

@eyoalha Create, enjoy, have fun, play…

“Create, enjoy, have fun, play, feel peace, feel inspired, live passionately, love deeply, be adventurous, laugh, eat, be.” – Eyoälha Baker

I just quoted myself lol Why not? :)

what we ache for at the deepest level…

“The call is that consistent tug we feel at the centre of our lives to do more than just continue, to know and fulfil the meaning of our lives. The call is always there, whispering in the soft places of our bodies and hearts, in the longing that reminds us what we ache for at the deepest level.” – Oriah

get closer to where you want to be…

“Don’t think about what can happen in a month. Don’t think about what can happen in a year. Just focus on the 24 hours in front of you and do what you can to get closer to where you want to be.” — Eric Thomas

The Going Coastal Running group – jump for joy! April 1, 2014

A fabulously bright and energetic jump into April :) Taken on a roof top in Vancouver, BC Canada.

Have a spectacular day!

something you love to do…

“Discovering and claiming something you love to do has an amazing effect on your entire life. It’s like a tiny perfect raindrop landing on a previously smooth, unremarkable expanse of water. The instant the drop arrives, beautiful waves of ever-enlarging rings flow across the entire surface, spreading out virtually to infinity.” – Dr. Susan Biali

rehearse optimistic thoughts…

“All that is required to become an optimist is to have the goal and to practice it. The more you rehearse optimistic thoughts, the more ‘natural’ and ‘ingrained’ they will become. With time they will be part of you, and you will have made yourself into an altogether different person.” – Sonja Lyubomirsky

bring what is within us out into the world…

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us. And when we bring what is within us out into the world, miracles happen.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

the influence of the human spirit…

“Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us.” – Wilma Rudolph

deeply in gratitude…

“Everyone is my teacher. Some I seek. Some I subconsciously attract. Often I learn simply by observing others. Some may be completely unaware that I’m learning from them, yet I bow deeply in gratitude.” – Eric Allen

Jude and Dannie jumping joy of the day! March 1, 2014

Getting creative. Jumping joy around a black and pink striped ally way in Vancouver BC Canada.

Have a fabulous day!

Look out on life with amazement…

“Look out on life with amazement, not shock. The variety, the diversity, the manner of every person, the beauty amidst the drudgery, the contrasts, the opportunities, the heroism in the lives of ordinary people, your gifts, your talents, your friends – even just one friend – is all awesome. Live in awe, and entertain wonder, and you will be knocking on the door of true love. Don’t kill it with cynicism or criticism, don’t sabotage your life with moaning and complaining. Open the eyes in your head and the eye in your intellect and choose to see the stunning, awesome, diverse beauty of life happening around you right now. Meet it with your heart and you will enrich and be enriched in one single moment.” – Unknown

Try things that excite you… ‪@marcandangel

“Try things that excite you. See things that startle you. Experience things you have never felt before.” – Marc and Angel Hack Life

fundamentally an optimist…
