Lenora Gates #jumpforjoyphoto of the day! @lenoragates Apr. 15, 2015

Q. Your experience doing jumping photos?
A: Freeing – while jumping you can’t control all parts of your body and you need to let go. Letting go is so freeing.

This is Lenora Gates. Her jumps were inspired by her love of the outdoors. She is on a mission to create a future without Breast Cancer. She chairs the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation B.C. Yukon region and also sits on the National Board.

Learn more about Lenora’s inspirations and how you can support her work towards eliminating Breast Cancer in her Jump for Joy Feature: http://eepurl.com/bgkz9v

This is Farrah. I met her in Los Angeles. This jump shoot was a special day for me as it was the first day Jump for Joy Photo Project was imagined. After a fun day on the beach doing jump photos together, we sat on her roof top in Venice, California and imagined how wonderful it would be to take Jump for Joy Photos around the world… :)

Farrah gave me a little gift with this note inside which always reminds me that anything is possible:

An idea is born. Jump for joy.

An idea is born. Jump for joy.

Enjoy your day!

We want to explore and have fun… @donMiguelRuiz #quote #integrity

“There is no need to justify what we are. There is no need to work hard to become what we are not. We just need to return to our integrity, to the way we were before we learned to speak. Perfect. As little children, we are authentic. Only the present time is real for us; we don’t care about the past, and we aren’t worried about the future. We enjoy life; we want to explore and have fun. Nobody teaches us to be that way; we are born that way.” – Don Miguel Ruiz

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
