Showcasing the beauty of the human spirit - in mid air - around the world


"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." ~ Marianne Williamson

Hello everyone.. the video for my first ever attempt at public speaking has been posted online. I made quite a few mess ups, including completely blanking out at one point lol but still feel quite proud of myself for getting up there and giving it a go :) I enjoyed the experience and am looking forward to doing more speaking engagements soon. Here is the video, enjoy!

The fabulous featured jumper this week is Samantha Skelly. Our shoot was a done while being filmed for a segment on Go West Shaw TV which will be airing on Thursday - will post it next week... and now, on the this weeks featured jumper :)

Q: What inspires you to jump for joy?
A: It's a feeling. The feeling of stepping back into my 5 year old self where jumping for joy was a daily part of life. Jumping without judgement, jumping just because - it's a liberating act of happiness which connects is to the art of 'being happy for no reason'.

Q. Your experience doing jumping photos?
On fire. Full of love. It feels like a total release of tension. It's the combination of a physical and emotional release - ahhh!

Q: What inspires you in life?

A: The better question would be, what doesn't inspire me. I find inspiration in the smallest, seemingly insignificant experiences or situations. This morning I was inspired by my Starbucks barista who was putting every ounce of love and attention into perfecting my latte. I then went back to the office and used the same level of attention and care in writing my next blog post. I actively look for inspiration everywhere.
Q: Your greatest passion?
A: Human Connection and the alchemy of love.

Q: Your driving force?
 Freedom. Freedom and Integrity are my highest values, if what I am doing will contribute to supporting these two values I'm all in.

Q: Philosophy?
What's the worst that can happen?

Q: Anything in the world?
 I don't say this lightly, nor do I take it for granted. I can honestly say with every ounce of my soul I am doing exactly what I want to be doing. I am fully living my dream, each and everyday. I wake up and I help women and men around the world, I save lives though my work.

Q: Working on?
 I am fully and truly emerged in all aspects of Hungry For Happiness. Which is my social mission. It's such an all-consuming project which I will be fully invested in for at least the next decade of my life. It's one of the biggest joys in my life. I am constantly pushing the boundaries of boldness with it and constantly asking 'how can I be bolder in my attempts to change the world?' that question keeps me very occupied.
