“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.” – William Hutchison Murray

When I started out with the Jump for Joy Photo Project in 2012, I hoped that I would be able to spread joy around the world with my photos. Since then the journey has been full of many beautiful heart opening experiences and opportunities. In a few weeks I have the honour of being one of 12 speakers presenting at TedxEastVan. This is an exciting challenge for me to get up on stage and overcome my stage fright and Im looking forward to sharing some of my experiences along my journey and why I have been so committed to keep going with this project even through the rough patches and hard times 🙂

I would love to see some friendly faces out in the crowd so hope you can make it out to cheer us on, on April 23, 2016.

Thank you for following along my journey and for your ongoing support with this project so far.

Have a wonderful day!
