gratitude brings joy and laughter into your life…

“Gratitude helps you to grow and expand; gratitude brings joy and laughter into your life and into the lives of all those around you.” 
- Eileen Caddy

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

Alice Ko and Esther jumping joy photo of the day! February 11, 2014

Hope your day is amazing!

the joy of others…

“In the joy of others, lies our own, In the progress of others, rests our own, In the good of others abides our own.” – Pramukh Swami Maharaj

the power to choose moment by moment…

“We have the power to choose moment by moment who and how we want to be in the world.” – Jill Bolte Taylor

doing what you want to do…

“Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand–and melting like a snowflake…” — Francis Bacon

look at life with more playful eyes…

“…look at life with more playful eyes. Don’t be serious. Seriousness becomes like a blindness. Don’t pretend to be a thinker, a philosopher. Just simply be a human being. The whole world is showering its joy on you in so many ways, but if you are too serious, you cannot open your heart.” — Osho

a world within us…

“Each friend represents a world within us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.” ~ Anais Nin

happiness is the experience…

“Attaining lasting happiness requires that we enjoy the journey on our way toward a destination we deem valuable. Happiness is not about making it to the peak of the mountain nor is it about climbing aimlessly around the mountain; happiness is the experience of climbing toward the peak.”
 – Tal Ben

be light and frolicsome…

“I want to think of dangerous and noble things. I want to be light and frolicsome. I want to be improbable and beautiful and afraid of nothing as though I had wings.” – Mary Oliver

choose to learn from everything in our lives…

”I take solace in knowing that even though my path often is walked three steps forward and two steps back, even that backward motion (sometimes into fear or unconsciousness) is part of the journey teaching me compassion, forgiveness and patience with myself and others. We can choose to learn from everything in our lives – and it is in our nature to want to do just that. May we enjoy the process even in those moments when we are trying to “get somewhere.” ~ Oriah Mountain Dreamer from THE INVITATION

the center of our being…

“What if our religion was each other, if our practice was our life, if prayer, our words. What if the temple was the earth, if forests were our church, if holy water—the rivers, lakes, and ocean. What if meditation was our relationships, if the teacher was life, if wisdom was self-knowledge, if love was the center of our being.” — Ganga White

your access to joy never vanishes… @DanielleLaPorte

“Joy is the fibre of your Soul. It’s the stuff of your essence. And since you, your Soul, can never be annihilated (yes, that would make you eternal and omnipresent), your access to joy never vanishes. Because joy is so foundational to your true being, every other state or emotion can rest on top of joy, it can accommodate everything.” – Danielle LaPorte

Be not afraid of greatness…

“Be not afraid of greatness. Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon ‘em.” - William Shakespeare

Everything is energy…

“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.” — Albert Einstein

Live with intention…

“Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Continue to learn. Appreciate your friends. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.” — Mary Anne Radmacher

say anything about yourself…

“Never say anything about yourself you don’t want to come true.” ― Brian Tracy

You are JOY…

“You are JOY. We are all the different kinds of laughing.” 
~ Rumi

Doing what you’re afraid of…

“Great people do things before they’re ready. They do things before they know they can do it. Doing what you’re afraid of, getting out of your comfort zone and taking risks like that… that is what life is. You might be really good. You might find out something about yourself that’s really special… and if you’re not good, who cares?! You tried something. Now you know something about yourself.” – Amy Poehler

Sasha Byrnes jumping for joy!

Beautiful jumping joy in Stanley Park, Vancouver BC Canada.

A daily dose of daydreaming…

“A daily dose of daydreaming heals the heart, soothes the soul, and strengthens the imagination.” – Richelle E. Goodrich

profound sense that life is meaningful, joyful, vibrant and satisfying…

“Sustainable happiness is having a global and profound sense that life is meaningful, joyful, vibrant and satisfying. This type of happiness is more like contentment.

People often confuse sustainable happiness with cheerfulness. While positive emotions are aspects of happiness, true happiness is more authentic and complex than fleeting pleasure. It requires experiencing the full range of emotion in life, which inevitably includes moments of anger, disappointment, sadness and other negative emotions. These are natural and can be useful reactions. Negative emotions alert us to problems or dangers, helping us effectively navigate life circumstances. A major difference between happy people and their less happy counterparts is that happy people use negative emotions to help them find their way back to what’s positive and possible.” – Lia Steakley

moving forward together…

“If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.” – Henry Ford

beautiful ornaments illuminating my soul…

“I smile when I look back at the troubles that have strengthened me. What seems to be insurmountable struggles then are now beautiful ornaments illuminating my soul.” — Dodinsky

Jumping joy with Erin McMorrow! @erinmcmorrow

Peaceful jumping joy with Erin on the beach in Venice, California.

Have a super day!

on my list…

“I haven’t been everywhere but its on my list.” – Susan Sontag

the exultation of the possible…

“Play is the exultation of the possible.” – Martin Buber

choosing to take pleasure in what you have…

“The way I define happiness is being the creator of your experience, choosing to take pleasure in what you have, right now, regardless of the circumstances, while being the best you that you can be.” – Leo Babuta

take you forward into a life so magical and fulfilling…

“What if this path you are experiencing now will take you forward into a life so magical and fulfilling that you cannot even imagine it?” – Lena

go ahead and do what you can do…

“Even if you’re not sure exactly what you’ll do next, go ahead and do what you can do first. The way to establish positive momentum is to get started, and to proceed with determination and commitment. When you’re in motion, momentum is a powerful positive force that can keep you moving forward.” – Ralph Marston via Positivity

Self-portrait jumping joy – Eyoälha :)

Playing around doing jumping self-portrait photos in Hollywood, California.

Have a fabulous day!

deep gratitude for this life…

“I am in such deep gratitude for this life … continually amazed, inspired, and awestruck by this playground, my teachers (YOU included!) and all of the rhythmic love this heart pumps!” – Mackenzie Moen

All who have accomplished great things…

“All who have accomplished great things have had a great aim, have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high, one which sometimes seemed impossible.” – Orison Swett Marden

Delicious ambiguity…

“Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity!” — Gilda Radner

your entire life will change for the better…

Put your arms over your head and jump for joy! You don’t have to make it a high jump, just jump. Keep jumping until you start to feel the shift in your energy. It will come. The more you do this, the more joy you will feel. So do it often, do it regularly, and do it with your whole heart and I promise you – your entire life will change for the better.” – Brandy on Alpha Gamma Brain
