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

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

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

fundamentally an optimist…

I am jumping for joy today – I feel so grateful to be alive, to be healthy and to feel loved. What a joy it is to experience, to grow, to learn, to play.

I am looking forward to all the possibilities that await me in the up coming year.

Its fun that birthdays give us an excuse to celebrate our lives… I say – lets celebrate our lives everyday!

How are you celebrating your life today?

I took this self-portrait jumping photo this past summer in North Vancouver, BC Canada. I think I might just do a few more today here in Los Angeles :)

Have a great day!
