Terribly sorry for the lack of post my friends. I received multiple messages asking if I was ok, So to answer your question, I am doing great, as a matter of fact, I am doing extremely well. I have been busy working on a big project that will literally change my life.. I am very excited about this and should be able to announce it soon to the world. In the meantime, I will try to post at least once a week to keep in touch with all my beautiful G+ friends :) -- This shot was taken in Iceland during my last workshop. We decided to stop for a quick bite, but some of us decided to sick that meal explore the surrounding to see if we could find anything interesting to shoot. Needless to say, we weren't expecting to find this. This will be a moment that will be forever etched in my heart. I am sure that anyone present that day will tell you the same. Once you've experienced moments like this one, no longer... more »

“Life takes us to unexpected places... love brings us home.” 
I often think that I need to travel to exotic places in order to capture wonderful images...If only we take the time to look at our surroundings and change how we look at it...we will be amazed of what we can find. smile emoticon This was taken in my beautiful province of Quebec, Canada. Wishing you all a beautiful week heart emoticon

Happy 149th Birthday Canada!!! 🇨🇦Wishing all my fellow Canadians a Happy Canada🍁 day surrounded by all the people you love. ❤️❤️❤️To celebrate this special day, I have decided to repost one of my favorite shot from this amazing country.🌲

This poem really sums up how I feel about Canada.

I have forever viewed this scene,
and forever seen it alter.
I've seen the green turn red and gold,
and the warm sunshine falter.
I've seen this country suffer,
and have viewed it becoming strong.
I've seen the humans in this place,
develop a stronger bond.
Seen I have many cultures,
and viewed I have many races.
Seen have I many views,
and looked at many different faces.
The beauty of the leaf.
The sweetness of the sap.
The laughter of the sober child,
sitting on hismother's lap.

The laughter of the sober child,
sitting on his mother's lap.
The sounds of metal connecting with ice.
The cheering of the crowd.
The connecting of many hearts,
as the voices become more loud.
Though from far away I may have come,
from far away I may have seemed.
But consider the fact that I'm Canadian at heart,
and that is how I shall be deemed.

Extremely Happy and a real honour for me to have been chosen by +DJI  to represent them and be part of their small Elite group of Photographers. DJI is the global leader in the development and manufacturing of consumer and commercial drones. Cannot wait to see what I will be able to achieve using their amazing gear. I will now have more chances to capture images from above but without having to jump on a helicopter like I had to in order to capture this scene. Not that I was complaining...far from it :) Wish me luck, this is something completely new and exciting for me. Will hopefully have images to share with all of you very soon.

Would like to thank @RockiesHeliCanada and +Travel Alberta  for giving me the opportunity to live an amazing life experience and capturing the stunning beauty of the Canadian Rockies.

Just read this....Really Love it

Once upon a time, there lived a big mango tree. A little boy loved to come and play around it everyday. He climbed to the tree top, ate the mangoes, took a nap under the shadow… He loved the tree and the tree loved to play with him. Time went by, The little boy grew, and he no longer played around the tree.

One day, the boy came back to the tree with a sad look on his face. “Come and play with me,” the tree asked the boy. “I am no longer a kid, I don’t play around trees anymore.” The boy replied, “I want toys. I need money to buy them.” “Sorry, I don’t have money… but you can pick all my mangoes and sell them so you will have money.” The boy was so excited. He picked all the mangoes on the tree and left happily. The boy didn’t come back. The tree was sad.

Once upon a time, there lived a big mango tree. A little boy loved to come and play around it everyday. He climbed to the tree top, ate the mangoes, took a nap under the shadow… He loved the tree and the tree loved to play with him. Time went by, The little boy grew, and he no longer played around the tree.

One day, the boy came back to the tree with a sad look on his face. “Come and play with me,” the tree asked the boy. “I am no longer a kid, I don’t play around trees anymore.” The boy replied, “I want toys. I need money to buy them.” “Sorry, I don’t have money… but you can pick all my mangoes and sell them so you will have money.” The boy was so excited. He picked all the mangoes on the tree and left happily. The boy didn’t come back. The tree was sad.

One day, the boy grown into a man returned. The tree was so excited. “Come and play with me,” the tree said. “I don’t have time to play. I have to work for my family. We need a house for shelter. Can you help me?” “Sorry, I don’t have a house, but you can chop off my branches to build your house.” So the man cut all the branches off the tree and left happily. The tree was glad to see him happy but the boy didn’t come back afterward. The tree was again lonely and sad.

One hot summer day, the man returned and the tree was delighted. “Come and play with me!” The tree said. “I am sad and getting old. I want to go sailing to relax myself. Can you give me a boat?” “Use my trunk to build your boat. You can sail far away and be happy.” So the man cut the tree trunk to make a boat. He went sailing and didn’t come back for a long time.

Finally, the man returned after he had been gone for so many years. “Sorry, my boy, but I don’t have anything for you anymore. No more mangoes to give you.” The tree said. “I don’t have teeth to bite,” the man replied. “No more trunk for you to climb on.” “I am too old for that now,” the man said.

“I really can’t give you anything, the only thing left is my dying roots,” the tree said with sadness. “I don’t need much now, just a place to rest. I am tired after all these years,” the man replied. “Good! Old tree roots are the best place to lean on and rest. Come sit down with me and rest.” The boy sat down and the tree was glad and smiled.
Moral: The tree in the story represents our parents. When we are young, we love to play with them. When we grow up, we leave them and only come back when we need help. Parents sacrifice their lives for us. Never Forget their sacrifices. Give them Love and Care before its too late.
- Shel Silverstein

Don't forget to tell your mom how much you love her ..not only on mother's day but as often as you can :)

Do whatever it takes to find your passion

- It is by trying out new things that you will discover what yours is. Don't be afraid to undertake new chalenges that are given to you, this is how I have discovered mine.

- Ask yourself what makes you feel alive, this will be a great indication of where you should start.

- We are all drawn to it, it is up to us to listen when life is calling our name.

- Passion and love are the two most important things in life.

- Doing what excites you has great power both mentally and physically.

- No matter what you want to do with your life, be passionate.

My advice...Follow your passion, be prepared to work hard and sacrifice a lot of things but in the end I am here to tell you it is definitely worth it!. Stop Wishing you could do it and just do it. You never know when tomorrow might be too... more »

Haven't read something this good in a while...
Beautiful Poem by - Max Ehrmann

Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;

Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.

But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.

Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.

“We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate. We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again- to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.” ― Pico Iyer

Title: Come Alive
Location, Mono Lake California
Why are we often afraid to show our true colors? Show the world who we really are. If you never had this fear, you are one very lucky person considering we live on a world where we are in constant competition with family members, friends, coworkers, or anyone around us for that matter. I strongly believe the only person we can truly be is “ourselves” Yet, we still spend spend an enormous of time wishing we were someone else, trying to mimic what others do or how others look like simply for the sheer fact of being accepted or regarded as “someone important or special” in our society. The worst thing in all this is, we often envy someone who, in his/her mind, also envies someone else. I like to call this "the circle of death". The fear of being not good enough, rejected, not liked, laugh at, lives in our heads every single day. Heck,some of... more »

The fear of being not good enough, rejected, not liked, laugh at, lives in our heads every single day. Heck, some of you might even be judging me as you are reading this. :) That fear is the #1 reason why on some occasion, in the past, I prefered to stay in the shadows and not share my true feelings. That way I was 100% sure that no one will pass a negative judgement towards me only to realize that in the end, this all came at a cost. I wish this would be something I can say that I have learned to eliminate entirely from my life but for now definitely working hard on it…. l like to think that we all posses the engine of a Ferrari inside of us, but unfortunately, fear and excuses makes us use it like a golf cart for most of our lives. Let’s be inspired by others but not envy them. Let’s be the ones that inspire others with our words and actions. We are all beautiful UNIQUE individuals with our own fascinating story to tell. On this wonderful weekend, Let’s be proud of who we are and not be afraid to yell it out loud. Unless you are in a library, then I strongly suggest you exit the building first. ;)
Big BIG Hug to everyone in need <3 ___

HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!! <3
A new chapter of our lives is about to start, will it be the one where the hero finally leaps out in the unknown and faces his/her fears to become who he/she always dreamed they would? Would it be the one where all excuses are put aside and replaced with courage and determination? Now that we have that blank canvas in front of us, We can decide if we will paint a masterpiece or simply stare at it hoping it will paint itself. No better time than now to take action and control of our lives. I wish you all a Happy New Year, a year filled with Health, Love <3 , Adventure, Inspiration, Realization and Excitement.

Some of you might remember that I have posted this way back in 2012, decided to post it again as I definitely needed to remind myself of this. 2015 wasn't an easy one for me...but without adversities and blessings our lives would simply be a flatline and we all know what that means. We are all heroes of our life story and like any hero we will encounters setbacks. The absolute best we can do is forget the things we absolutely had no control over and learn from the mistakes we did. I personally often prefer to take all the blame when things go wrong as I feel it is the only way that I will truly learn from the experience. By putting all or half the blame on circumstances or other people, I often feel that I become powerless and chances are, I might repeat the same mistakes or behaviour.

Remember: only 2 things will make your dreams come true..1: your choices..2: and your commitment to those choices. I sincerely wish that 2016 will an amazing year for all of you. A year where the past will stop dictating your future and your thoughts be filled with Love and Dreams.

Wishing everyone Happy Holidays. Hope love is the best gift you give and receive this year... LOVE your family ❤ LOVE the people that are close to you ❤ LOVE your life ❤ and make sure to give LOVE ❤ everywhere you go by being kind to a stranger, smile often, hold a door open for someone, give a compliment, help an elderly, be a courteous driver, check up on someone who looks lonely, wave to a kid in the car next to you and the list goes on an on... It is in this joyful season that some of us feel the most left out and alone.

My usual landscape photography will come once I get back home but for now... here is.. and sorry about that....another self portrait of me contemplating this awesome location. I cannot be grateful enough for having the chance to see these magnificent places. Thank you +Visit Jordan for making the experience a memorable one.

Really can relate to this...so well written
Life is like a journey on a train...with its stations...changes of routes...and accidents!
At birth we boarded the train and met our parents, and we believe they will always travel by our side.
However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on this journey alone….but not quite.
As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be significant i.e. our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of our life.
Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum. Some will move to another car for awhile and come back. Others will go so unnoticed we don't realize they left their seats!
This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hurts, hellos, goodbyes, and farewells.

This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hurts, hellos, goodbyes, and farewells.
Success consists of having a good relationship with all passengers...requiring that we give the best of ourselves because we are all on this ride together.
The mystery to everyone is: We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down. So, we must live in the best way - love, forgive, and offer the best of who we are, including our seat if necessary.
It’s important because when the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty -- we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life without us.
I wish you a joyful journey for the coming years on your train of life. Reap success, give lots of love and be happy.
More importantly, be thankful for the journey!
Lastly, I thank you for being one of the passengers on my train! heart emoticon heart emoticon heart emoticon

When I started looking for a company to take care of the creation of my new website..I wasn’t looking for just any company. I did not want a company that keeps popping out new websites one after another like so many are presently doing. These companies create websites that, as I like to say, have no soul.

I did not want a company that keeps popping out new websites one after another like so many are presently doing. These companies create websites that, as I like to say, have no soul. They keep using the same templates over and over again and simply change the pictures and colour schemes. I wanted to find a company with passionate individuals just like myself that love what they do. One that would actually take time to evaluate my needs, make sure to come up with great suggestions and finally create something better that I was initially asking for.
I could not be happier with the look and feel of my new website. They totally respected my current branding, came up with some brilliant ideas, and novel things to incorporate in this first release (1.0) but also proposed a few updates that will be added later on that will enhance dramatically the viewer’s experience. If you are looking for a team of passionate individuals to undertake your new or existing website..look no further..3ejoueur is definitely the team you are looking for. You can learn more about these great webmasters here: http://difrusciaphotography.3ejoueur.com/
After teaming up with 3eJoueur my next step was obviously to look for a reputable and reliable web hosting company that would give me exactly what I needed. As a professional photographer, you can probably imagine that quality comes first. I always look for the same quality in all the people are partner with. As you can see, my website is quit elaborate and will get even more within the next year. Me and my team have put so much time and effort into this project that the last thing I wanted is for my visitors whole experience to be tarnished by hosting it with a mediocre hosting company.
I have had miserable experiences with some of them which I will not name but I promised myself that this won’t happen again. So after researching on that matter and consulting my partners from 3eJoueur, We have come to the conclusion that +SiteGround.com  would definitely be part of the top hosting companies I can choose to partner with that will offer me complete peace of mind. Now I have a website that loads faster, with innovative ways to keep it safe and lightning fast support if needed. Truly excited that such a reputable company with strong ethics agreed to partner with me.
If you are not satisfied with your current hosting or looking for a place to host your new website, I highly recommend you give them a try https://www.siteground.com/index.htm…___

Contrary to what many of us tend to believe, the happiest people aren't the ones with the most money, houses, cars, fame etc..On the other hand, they also aren't the ones with the least but I was amazed to read in a recent study that Panama, Costa Rica and Puerto Rico are the top tree world happiest countries in the world with US ranking 23rd and Canada 24th. Now, can we really based our judgement on a study if there is no real way for us to know how legitimate this study really is? Of course not, but having been in one of these countries, and witnessing first hand the people from Costa Rica, I tend to believe it a little more. <3

Sometimes I feel we live in a world that is slowly turning us into zombies. We spend countless hours on social medias wishing we were someone else or somewhere else. We keep judging our lives and who we are in relation to other people’s post. We spend countless hours watching TV Shows or movies with "no soul". Shows that beside making sure we are unproductive or should I say "entertained", have absolutely no other goals. Most of them hardly brings us any positive feelings, emotions or motivations to be better at what we do or who we are as humans. Unfortunately, many of us get trapped into this only to realize after a few years that we are exactly at the same point we were years ago and wonder why. Worst is, after pondering on that for a short while, we quickly start the same pattern again and again.

Sometimes I feel we live in a world that is slowly turning us into zombies. We spend countless hours on social medias wishing we were someone else or somewhere else. We keep judging our lives and who we are in relation to other people’s post. We spend countless hours watching TV Shows or movies with "no soul". Shows that beside making sure we are unproductive or should I say "entertained", have absolutely no other goals. Most of them hardly brings us any positive feelings, emotions or motivations to be better at what we do or who we are as humans. Unfortunately, many of us get trapped into this only to realize after a few years that we are exactly at the same point we were years ago and wonder why. Worst is, after pondering on that for a short while, we quickly start the same pattern again and again. It almost looks like all this has been conceived on purpose in order to make sure we dont think too much, we don’t ask too many questions, we don’t have faith in or even worst don’t have any goals and dreams at all. In other words, making sure we live our lives like zombies. We constantly create ourselves material needs, consume more than we should and think we have no control whatsoever over what is going on in our lives. I personally think that the problem is not the world we live. It would be too easy to blame everything on it.

I Think The Main Problem is.....We forgot how to think!!

The second we have a minute to spare we immediately connect to whatever device we can to make sure we fill in that gap. And this goes on all day until we can barely keep our eyes open. When is the last time you took time uninterrupted, with no distractions, with only a pen and a paper? Took the time to think of things you would like to change or happen in your life, write them down and think of ideas on how you could accomplish them. Don’t question them just write them down. It does not matter how silly they might sound at first, these ideas might trigger bigger and better ideas down the road. By doing this daily practice, you will quickly realize that:

- You do have more control over your life that you thought possible.
- You do have the power to become better person.
- You can make this world a better place for you and others.

As soon as you start doing this, you will immediately feel better about yourself and this will radiate towards others giving them the energy they need to do exactly the same. The best way to inspire others is not by our words but by our actions. Again I will end this post by sharing one amazing quote by the great Mahatma Ghandi

“ Let’s Be the change we want to see in the world”

I have come across multiple obstacles recently and decided to keep following my heart even if every night before falling asleep my mind tells me otherwise. To me, the feeling of being uncomfortable is one that tells me I am heading in the right direction. Some of the best experiences in my life happen when I said “ The hell with it, I’m doing this” (apart from that time when I was a kid and decided to jump off the swing over ten of my friends and broke my arm wink emoticon )
I feel like my heart is connected to something that is way bigger than me. A higher force that is constantly guiding me in the right direction. I do strongly believe that my direction is the right one even if at this present moment it might look like I am heading for a crash landing.

I do strongly believe that my direction is the right one even if at this present moment it might look like I am heading for a crash landing. I do believe that that events will occur in order to rectify my situation. Which ones and when will they happen you ask? I have absolutely no idea, but I just know they will. Some call me irresponsible but I have come to the conclusion that in life we have 2 choices, It’s either we keep heading in the direction where our heart guides us and keep getting closer and closer to finally one day reach our destination or stay where our mind keeps telling us to and one day wish we had made the move sooner but now it's too late. Now please understand, I am not saying that we should never follow our logic, I am simply saying we should try to pay more and more attention to what our heart wants because in the end, ( and I will use that famous quote to end this post: "Life Is Not Measured By the Number of Breaths We Take, But By the Moments That Take Our Breath Away" ) …. you have to agree with me that these moments are without a doubt created when we follow our heart wink emoticon

Yesterday night I wanted to test to power of my Canon 5DSR in combination with the Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM Lens with Internal 1.4x Extender which gave me approx 560mm focal length on my full frame sensor. So what better time to do it than with a Super Blood Moon. Unfortunately I was not able to get the full blood moon due to heavy cloud cover that had to come just has the magic started to happen. Nevertheless, once I got home, I was amazed on the amount of details I got while shooting the Super Moon. Here you have a shot of the Super Moon just as the eclipse started and one of the blood moon 3/4 into it when cloud cover started to softened my results. Still had an amazing time watching this incredible show….See ya in 2033 Blood Moon… Don’t even want to do the math to see how old I will be..hopefully my eyesight will still be working tongue emoticon For those who did, Hope you all had a goodtime ... more »

Quick self portrait from the beautiful Mt-Megantic National Park. First time I actually visit this part of Quebec and my my was I not disappointed. Found so many hidden and no so hidden treasures and barely scratched the surface of this beautiful location. Definitely need to go back in a few weeks to capture the full peak of fall colors. I was also very fortunate to have the luxury to stay in the new SEPAQ EXP Cabins..this is what I call true luxury in the wilderness. These Fully equipped micro cabins ( heated, shower, toilet, small stove and fridge, pots, pans dishes, utensils ) Perfect for those who want to experience the outdoors without having to carry all your camping gear. Simply bring food and you’re all set.
For this shot I used the new Canon 5DSR with the new Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM Lens. Absolutely love this new lense and how wide you can shoot with it. A real dream come true for al... more »

I have been to Norway twice already and totally fell in love with the incredible country. I was extremely happy when +serdar ugurlu photography  contacted me to see if I would be interested in teaming up with him and Christian Ringer to hold an amazing photo tour in one of the most beautiful places on earth ...Lofoten, Norway. smile emoticon Not only will I get to visit this beautiful place again, but will do so at the best time of the year to be there with two passionate individuals. In Spring, Lofoten is blessed with the "Arctic Light“ a phenomenon which takes place in the weeks before the midnight sun. During this period the sunrise and sunset are interconnected in a breathtaking show of color and light lasting between 8 – 12 hours. A dream come true for any photographer and nature lover.

One simply cannot visit Myanmar without falling in love with its children..Here is just a small sample of the images of these beautiful human beings I was able captured during my stay in this incredible country. Once again, this is not my type of photography at all as you may already know but could not help myself than to almost entirely focus on the people instead of the landscapes. Truly a first for me and what an unforgettable experience it was. Hope you enjoy these quick edits and please let me know your honest thoughts. Wishing everyone a beautiful weekend.   #VikingCruises‬     #lifewelltravelled

visited Incredible Bagan in Myanmar!!! What an amazing place...as much as this place is incredible..the thing that really touched me the most about this country is definitely the people.. So many of us are spoiled but still find a way to be unhappy or complain about what we don't have. Burmese people barely posses a tiny fraction of what we do but seem to be so much happier. This is one experience that was genuinely good for my soul. Wishing all my Google + friends a great weekend, hope you are all doing great   #Vikingcruises   #Lifewelltravelled

Another incredible day in Myanmar. It was truly another day filled with beautiful life experiences and incredible scenery..Being on a river cruise permits me to view all sorts of different landscape without getting tired carrying all my equipment around. I must say I am really starting to enjoy the convenience of drinking a cold Gin Tonic while waiting for things to come to me... smile emoticon might as well enjoy it because I know this won't happen too often. Here is a beautiful moment I was able to capture from the boat yesterday. ‪#‎VikingCruises‬ +Viking River Cruises

“A man on foot, on horseback or on a bicycle will see more, feel more, enjoy more in one mile than the motorized tourists can in a hundred miles.” ~ Edward Abbey
Edward cannot be more right about this... unless you fly in an helicopter over the Canadian Rockies. tongue emoticon Just went over some of my pictures from last year and found another take from this wonderful experience. Seeing that pic, brought me right back!!. This was definitely one of my highlights from last year. Very hard to describe the incredible feeling and I owe this unforgettable experience to the pros at +Rockies Heli Canada  and the awesome people at +Travel Alberta. I will end this quick post with another quote from ~ Michael Althsuler ---- “The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.” ----- Where are you heading today??

I recently got asked, "What is the single biggest mistake you have made in your life?" Took me a little while to answer this one and could not come up with an answer. I kept going back in my life and thought about all those moments where I thought I literally screwed things up only to realize an hour, or a year afterwards that these weren’t mistakes at all. All these so called mistakes were actually blessings in disguise. I can sincerely say that my mistakes were and still are the best life coach I could ever ask for.
- They made me realize that no matter how much I stress over things I do not control, It will never affect the outcome in a positive way, as a matter of fact, it will only make it worst. 
- They made me appreciate the people or things in my life instead of focusing on what I don’t have.

- They made me appreciate the people or things in my life instead of focusing on what I don’t have. 
- They made me realize that impatience always leads to no good. 
- They made me realize that most of my fears were nothing more than small pebbles in my shoes..Very uncomfortable but once removed, very trivial. 
- They made me realize that no matter how much I wish to be someone else, I will always be my one and only self and to be proud of that.
In other words, they all made me a better man.
I know that some of you might be able to share with me mistakes that you simply cannot find a positive outlook from but I am sure you will agree that you can on most of them.
If you are presently thinking you have just made a big mistake in your life, instead of making things worst by dwelling over it, Try asking yourself..What can I learn from this that will make me a better person? Who needs to spend money on a life coach really…lets just keep making mistakes.. They're free!!! (well sometimes they are) wink emoticon 
In the end the important thing is to remember this famous quote from an unknown author : "You can't make the same mistake twice. The second time you make it, it's no longer a mistake. It's a choice.” So I advise you to learn quickly !! Wishing you all a beautiful week full of mistakes. tongue emoticon

Wondering why your passion is not happening? A friend of mine is presently going thru major questioning about his passion and direction with life. This made me think.. why are we always prone to imagine the worst in a situation instead of dreaming big and imagining how big and fulfilling our life can get. Usually we don't want to mess things up by doing it wrong so instead we make sure we really mess things up by not doing anything at all. We waste months/years waiting for the perfect time to act and the more we wait the more we get scared to act..The more meaningful this passion is ...the more we tend to only imagine failure. There is a reason why this has became your passion. And that reason is.. you acted upon it and found that it truly made you feel alive. That feeling became like a drug and you needed it more and more. We did not learn what our true passion was by remaining inactive. So we have to... more »

Wondering why your passion is not happening? A friend of mine is presently going thru major questioning about his passion and direction with life.

Usually we don't want to mess things up by doing it wrong so instead we make sure we really mess things up by not doing anything at all. We waste months/years waiting for the perfect time to act and the more we wait the more we get scared to act..The more meaningful this passion is ...the more we tend to only imagine failure. There is a reason why this has became your passion. And that reason is.. you acted upon it and found that it truly made you feel alive. That feeling became like a drug and you needed it more and more. We did not learn what our true passion was by remaining inactive. So we have to make sure to keep that same spirit at all times...specially when we are trying to live out of it. We need to keep moving, not worry if this is in the right direction..keep moving and realign yourself if you need to but never stay inactive waiting for the right moment. This is when you can easily turn into that zombie again. If you see that something is not working, don't keep doing it for years hoping for a different outcome, change it around. Take some time to think..really think. Turn off all phones, TVs, distraction and take at least one night per week with a pen a paper to write down different ideas that could help you achieve your goals (sending an email to someone, trying a different approach, teaming up with a friend etc..)...don't judge what pops into your head..just write it down. You never know what other great ideas it might bring in the future. Let's face it, we are all waiting for Superman to come and save us, or that holy voice to tells us exactly what to do. I am here to tell you, this so called saviour is already there...living inside of us. It constantly tries to guide us in the right direction but we prefer to look the other way, the same way most of us do when we pass an homeless man on the sidewalk. The easiest approach is definitely..Let's pretend he's not there so I can go on with with normal little life. I strongly believe we were all born with what I call our own "Natural Navigation System" (GPS if you prefer) Once we have determined what our true passion is, it will automatically start guiding us in the right direction. Imagine this for a sec, what would happen if every-time your GPS tells you to turn one direction, you completely ignore it and turn the other way?? Well you would never get to your desired location. Why do most of us, do that with our lives? Bottom line is, There are no excuses that will bring you the life you want..Only Actions..no matter how small they are. If you truly want to live a fulfilling life that is full of passion, what are you doing to make it happen? The power only lies in your hands. Act now before it's too late. (If my friend reads this and knows this was meant for him...Love you bro..I truly believe in you :)

Some came into my life just for a brief moment and some chose to stay and became close friends. When I think about these great lasting connections, I immediately think of +Ken Kaminesky  +Elia Locardi  and +Naomi Locardi  . They are without a doubt some of the most hardworking, dedicated & talented individuals I was fortunate to meet via social media and then lucky to build a true friendship with. When I see people I love, living their dreams and making things happen for themselves, I cannot help myself than to be truly inspired. My three great friends have just entered in this great venture and created a new photography tour company called DreamPhotoTours.com. For the launched of their brand new website they have teamed up with some of the greatest companies in the field and put together an AWESOME photography giveaway ... and when I say AWESOME, I am not kidding!!!! You don't believe me? see for yourself http://bit.ly/DreamGiveaway15 ....If only I could enter.... snif snif snif cry emoticon I wish you guys (Ken, Elia and Noami) all the success you truly deserve. Love you lots heart emoticon heart emoticon heart emoticon

When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.
When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.
When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.
When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.
When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.
When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.

Just got reminded of this tale by my good friend +Sophie Viau 
How awesome and true is this? 
--------------------------------
One evening, an elderly
Cherokee brave told his
Grandson about a battle that
Goes on inside people.
He said "my son, the battle is
Between two 'wolves' inside us all.
One is evil. It is anger,
Envy, jealousy, sorrow,
Regret, greed, arrogance,
Self-pity, guilt, resentment,
Inferiority, lies, false pride,
Superiority, and ego.
The other is good.
It is joy, peace love, hope serenity,
Humility, kindness, benevolence,
Empathy, generosity,
Truth, compassion and faith."
The grandson though about
It for a minute and then asked
His grandfather:
"which wolf wins?..."
The old cherokee simply replied,
"the one that you feed"more »

I definitely connect with this great artist +Tim McMorris - Songs that make me feel this good and happy will always have a big place in my heart and iPhone :) . Ideal road trip music if you ask me.

The sun shines bright
As it moves across my face
I feel the light
And everything is in it’s place
I woke up feeling great
Today was made for me
And life is good, the way it should, the way it was meant to be
And it’s a beautiful day
The wind is blowing, the bells are ringin’
Children playing in the park
While birds are singin’
And I’m walkin’, and I’m laughin’
Life is perfect, I’m not tryin’, it’s just happenin’ - Time McMorris
