the yellow birds: all the little things that open your eyes, altering you from the moment you find them. They're the inspiration you feel when you see the beauty in something ordinary. It's when you forget the big picture simply to notice the way the wind blows through your hair, or the smell before rain. It's a book that changes your life. It's midnight coffee, and night-long heart-to-hearts spent on rooftops. It's when simply existing makes you feel invincible.




Love for life
Stop worrying and just do. Stop judging and just do.
Think about what you’re doing, but not so much that you fail to do it. Plan and prepare, but don’t stop with mere planning or preparation.
Put your energy into taking action rather than into second guessing. Keep your focus on why you’re choosing to move forward instead of getting caught up in the challenges that you’ll eventually transcend.
Don’t use your beautiful, powerful creativity to think of grand and glorious excuses. Use that creativity to remind yourself and to experience for yourself how great it feels to make a difference.
Fill your mind with thoughts of purposeful intention. Fill your moments with the joy that comes from taking effective action.
Fill your heart with genuine love for life and all it encompasses. And fill your days with action in the service of all you love.
— Ralph Marston

Amor pela vida  (tradução)
Pare de se preocupar e apenas fazer. Pare de julgar e apenas fazer. Pense no que você está fazendo, mas não tanto que você deixar de fazê-lo. Planejar e preparar, mas não pare com o mero planejamento ou preparação. Coloque sua energia para agir, em vez de em segundo adivinhando. Mantenha seu foco sobre por que você está escolhendo para avançar em vez de ficar preso nos desafios que você eventualmente transcendem. Não utilize o seu belo, a criatividade poderosa para pensar em desculpas e mais gloriosos. Use a criatividade para se lembrar e experimentar por si mesmo como é grande a sensação de fazer a diferença. Encha sua mente com pensamentos de intenção proposital. Preencha os seus momentos com a alegria que vem de tomar uma ação efetiva. Encha seu coração de amor genuíno para a vida e tudo o que engloba. E preencher os seus dias com a ação do serviço de todos que você ama. 
- Ralph Marston



I took a photo every 2 minutes over the span of about 2 hours at a 20 second exposure and animated it all together! This 2 second loop was the result!

And at the end of the day, your feet should be dirty, your hair messy and your eyes sparkling.
