the desire to do things… #psychologytoday #quote #jumpforjoyphoto

“Motivation is literally the desire to do things. It’s the difference between waking up before dawn to pound the pavement and lazing around the house all day. It’s the crucial element in setting and attaining goals—and research shows you can influence your own levels of motivation and self-control. So figure out what you want, power through the pain period, and start being who you want to be.” – Psychology Today

Be as weird as you are… @marcandangel #quote #beweird

“Be as weird as you are. Don’t be afraid to provoke the status quo. Maybe some of your ideas are crazy. But crazy ideas are what shake the world. Crazy ideas make revolutions. So don’t be afraid to be different, and don’t be afraid to break traditions. Sure, some people will be frustrated and opposed to your weirdness. Some people might even criticize you. But even if it takes time for them to embrace your ideas, you’re showing them a new way of thinking. You’re planting a seed in their heads and opening their minds – and you’re opening your own mind too. The minute you understand that you can be weird and mold life your own way, you allow yourself to shake off the erroneous notion that life is just there, and that you’re just going to exist in it, rather than embrace it, change it, improve it, and truly live it.”Marc and Angel Hack Life

‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ … @LegendSteveJobs

“I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.” – Steve Jobs

You’d live a gigantic, bold, fun, dazzling life….

“If you knew that your life was merely a phase or short, short segment of your entire existence, how would you live? Knowing nothing ‘real’ was at risk, what would you do? You’d live a gigantic, bold, fun, dazzling life. You know you would. That’s what the ghosts want us to do – all the exciting things they no longer can.” – Chuck Palahniuk

I was conscious only of my happiness…

“Once upon a time, I dreamt I was a butterfly, fluttering hither and thither, to all intents and purposes a butterfly. I was conscious only of my happiness as a butterfly, unaware that I was myself. Soon I awaked, and there I was, veritably myself again. Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly, dreaming I am a man.” – Zhuangzi

you can change anytime you like… @julien

“You don’t know anyone at the party, so you don’t want to go. You don’t like cottage cheese, so you haven’t eaten it in years. This is your choice, of course, but don’t kid yourself: it’s also the flinch. Your personality is not set in stone. You may think a morning coffee is the most enjoyable thing in the world, but it’s really just a habit. Thirty days without it, and you would be fine. You think you have a soul mate, but in fact you could have had any number of spouses. You would have evolved differently, but been just as happy. You can change what you want about yourself at any time. You see yourself as someone who can’t write or play an instrument, who gives in to temptation or makes bad decisions, but that’s really not you. It’s not ingrained. It’s not your personality. Your personality is something else, something deeper than just preferences, and these details on the surface, you can change anytime you like.” – Julien Smith

An email from Joe Carlson about the #Vancouver #JumpforJoyPhoto #Mural @MuralityArt @eyoalha

I received this touching email yesterday from a fellow named Joe Carlson. I went by to see what had been done…

They did a great job of pasting back pieces that had started to peel off due to water damage… unfortunately, some of the repairs were made with sections of my unused posters randomly pasted over top of the mural like big mismatched Band-Aids (as the artist I would have made different choices for my work so wish I had been there myself). However, it is the thought that counts. I am very appreciative of whoever took the time to voluntarily repair the water damaged areas pealing off the wall.

Thank you Amalia and whoever your friends are that did the work…

Joe gave me permission to share his lovely email with you, please take a moment to look through his wonderful photographs here: joecarlsonthroughthelens.com

——________——–______——-_______——–______——–_______——-_____–

Hello Eyoalha;

My name is Joe Carlson, at the end of January, I was downtown and found your amazing mural. I ended up at the mural twice in 3 days.I hung around and got some cool shots of your mural, people in the lane and the 2 gentlemen sprucing up your mural.

I posted my photos on Facebook, people were surprised at where the mural was and thought it was a great idea and very cool…

I just thought you would like to know that your work was appreciated.

I did not attach the photos that I took , I thought it would be easier for you to see them at my website: joecarlsonthroughthelens.com

This is what I said on Facebook:

“I was downtown on January 26th to do some street photography and found this mural in a lane off of Main and Pender. I stayed for a while and took some photos of the mural and some people. I saw that it was called the Jump for Joy photo project. I noticed that some of the mural was peeling away from the wall of the building. (this comment will make sense in a moment) I went on line to find out what the project was, this is what it says:

“Completed August 4, 2014: 9000 sq. ft. Jump for Joy Photo Mural in the lane way of 161 East Pender Street, Vancouver BC Canada. The mural is a compilation of photos of almost 200 people jumping for joy in different parts of Vancouver. The photos have been enlarged to 4×4 ft. and printed on 11×17 sheets cut and pasted together, then pasted to the wall.”

On January 28th I was back downtown and was walking by the mural and noticed a workman on a ladder fixing the mural. I spoke to the gentleman holding the ladder and found he was a friend of the person who owned the building. They were there volunteering to do some repairs to the mural. I stayed for a while talking and taking some photos. They were still working when I left. I just thought it was a cool little story that evolved by visiting the same place twice over 3 days. It’s amazing who you meet when wandering and how creative and talented people are….”

Take care, Joe
