"I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life's greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve. This level of resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent. As simplistic as this may sound, it is still the common denominator separating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret." - Anthony Robbins
VANCOUVER MURAL UPDATE:
We had an absolutely wonderful day celebrating joy and the completion of the mural. People were jumping and the energy was beautiful :) My nephew took over my camera for the day and captured some beautiful moments from the event, CLICK HERE to see his beautiful photography.
I'm still overflowing with JOY from the Vancouver Jump for Joy Opening event. It was so much fun!
My were cheeks happily sore from excessive smiling. The beautiful presence and joyful energy was felt and magnified by all the fun jumping pics in front of the mural. For those who couldn’t make it, joyful energy was felt from the photos in their place.
