You know that when one of the most optimistic people in the world references other people’s optimistic quotes, then they’re gonna be good. And they are.
But before you click on the link, here’s a few from Sir Optimism himself:
“My general attitude to life is to enjoy every minute of every day. I never do anything with a feeling of, ‘Oh God, I’ve got to do this today.”
~ Richard Branson
“Business opportunities are like buses, there’s always another one coming.”
~ Richard Branson
“Personally, I see any glass half full as an opportunity to top it up, start a conversation and perhaps spark a great new idea.”
~ Richard Branson
“Through the right people focusing on the right things, we can, in time, get on top of a lot, if not most of, the problems of this world. And that’s what a number of us are trying to do.”
And now…da da-da da!…the quotes that inspire Sir Richard Branson himself. (Which have in turn, inspired me, and I’m willing to bet will inspire you too.)
Oh, and btw, at the bottom of his post, don’t miss his top 10 quotes on other aspects of life too.

(Btw, I am not affiliated in any way with my “boyfriends”. In fact, it’s unlikely they know I exist. (Sniff) But I felt compelled to share their message with you, ’cause if you’re reading this, you’re likely like me and wanted to know about it. ~ You’re welcome!)
Warning: after you watch their film, you’ll want them as boyfriends too. Psssttt, you can watch it on Netflix or iTunes – just sayin’
Despite the layers of clothing worn – Long johns, scarves and mitts, Despite the rosy flesh and ears From wintry wind’s harsh kiss, Despite the mounds of roadside dirt Where encrusted snow is knotted, Despite each pole, the base of which, Is brightly yellow dotted, Despite the rising plumes of white From frosty-face and sewer-bars, Despite the clear blue skies above with wind-chills straight from Mars, February plays its part, For each month has its story. Canadians embrace them all, And cherish each one’s glory. Regardless of the cold alerts, And broken water mains, We’ll fish and skate and drive our cars, With tires wrapped in chains. “It’s merely winter in Canada” We boast with pride and shout. When really what we’re thinking is, “Ten more days, then Feb. Get the F’n Hell Out!

I recently watched the documentary, Mile… Mile & a Half – A Journey Along the John Muir Trail. It tracks the journey of five friends who embark on a 211 mile hike from Yosemite to Mt. Whitney in California. But these aren’t just any average friends. Each is an artist; two are cinematographers, one is a still photographer, one is a location sound recordist, and one is a camera man.
The documentary combines their skills to capture the beauty and sounds of this spectacular wilderness. But believe me, it’s not a typical nature film. It’s also a film about friends – their spirit, their perseverance but mostly their humour and camaraderie. And it’s about the people they meet and ‘collect’ along the way.
Well worth watching. I hope you make the time to enjoy it. (Psst…it’s available on iTunes & Netflix).
“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.” ~John Muir
