If you really want to escape the things that harass you, what youโ€™re needing is not to be in a different place but to be a different person. โ˜”๏ธ (Lucius Annaeus Seneca, Letters from a Stoic) โ˜”๏ธ Do you leave and go to a different place? Or do you become a different person? (For example: Yours truly always has tried to leave and go to a different place, but Iโ€™ve learned the hard way that no matter how far you go youโ€™ll still carry some of that stress with you.) โ˜”๏ธ โ˜”๏ธ #reflection #rainynights #nocturnal_visionaries #lovetoronto #CreateExplore #olympusinspired #getolympus #autumnintoronto #torontophoto #exploreyourcity #visualsoflife #creativeoptic #dailyhivetoronto #theuniversalart #ourvisualvibes #bravogreatphoto #ourclickdays #lightroommasters #visual_architects #torontolove #yyzishome #theimaged #grammercollective #blogTO #wandering #itswhatido

That's the advantage of insomnia. People who go to be early always complain that the night is too short, but for those of us who stay up all night, it can feel as long as a lifetime. You get a lot done ๐Ÿ’ง (Banana Yoshimoto, N.P) ๐Ÿ’ง Whether youโ€™re an early bird or a night owl, hope this weekend is a good one for you! ๐Ÿฆ‰ (Not gonna lie: Iโ€™m a night owl by nature, itโ€™s when I get the most work done - largely bc everyone else is sleeping - and when I get my best ideas. ๐Ÿฆ‰) Are you an early bird? ๐Ÿค Or a night owl? ๐Ÿฆ‰ ๐Ÿ’ง ๐Ÿ’ง #reflection #reflectiongram #puddle #nocturnalwonderland #lovetoronto #CreateExplore #olympusinspired #getolympus #autumnintoronto #torontophoto #exploreyourcity #visualsoflife #creativeoptic #dailyhivetoronto #theuniversalart #ourvisualvibes #bravogreatphoto #ourclickdays #lightroommasters #visual_architects #torontolove #yyzishome #theimaged #grammercollective #blogTO #wandering #itswhatido

The beauty and mystery of this world only emerges through affection, attention, interest and compassion . . . open your eyes wide and actually see this world by attending to its colors, details and irony. ๐ŸŽจ (Orhan Pamuk, My Name is Red) ๐ŸŽจ However you may view your world, hoping everyone is having an enjoyable Tuesday... Anyone else found that the way they view the world has changed since they started on Instagram?

My chief task has been to conquer fear. The public sees only the thrill of the accomplished trick; they have no conception of the tortuous preliminary self-training that was necessary to conquer fear no one except myself can appreciate how I have to work at this job every single day, never letting up for a moment. I always have on my mind the thought that next year I must do something greater, something more wonderful. ๐ŸŒ‡ (Harry Houdini) ๐ŸŒ‡ Sometimes it can feel like youโ€™re only as good as your last post. The above is essentially a portrait of what many of us look like when weโ€™re trying to come up with a new capture...

The easiest way to attract a crowd is to let it be known that at a given time and a given place someone is going to attempt something that in the event of failure will mean sudden death. ๐Ÿƒ (Harry Houdini) ๐Ÿƒ Whether it be by the promise of sudden-death or a free t-shirt, however you choose to attract the crowds this Thursday, may it be a magical one!

I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. He taught me that if you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it at full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be. ๐Ÿ’ง (Roald Dahl, My Uncle Oswald) ๐Ÿ’ง (In frame: @blindmonkeystudios ) Life is too short to live it lukewarm. Hope everyoneโ€™s having an awesome long weekend before itโ€™s back to school. (Taken on opening day of @letsgototheex - despite the torrential downpours there was a silver lining to that cloud and that silver lining came in the form of puddles galore ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ˜œ).

Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony. ๐ŸŽจ (Coco Chanel, Chanel) ๐ŸŽจ Do you live in a world of colour? Or merely one that is black or white? (For example: This past weekend, yours truly had a wedding/engagement party to attend and was told that one could not wear black - this definitely presented quite the challenge as I basically live wearing black all day, every day. So essentially you could say I live in a world that is not colour, not black and white, just black. ๐Ÿ–ค All kidding aside, it was a beautiful ceremony and I managed to wear something that did not have any black in it ๐Ÿ˜œ.) ๐ŸŽจ ๐ŸŽจ #letsgototheex #themidway #reflectiongram #puddle #symmetricalmonsters #ig_neoncities #lovetoronto #CreateExplore #olympusinspired #getolympus #summerintoronto #torontophoto #exploreyourcity #visualsoflife #creativeoptic #dailyhivetoronto #theuniversalart #ourvisualvibes #bravogreatphoto #ourclickdays #lightroommasters #visual_architects #torontolove #yyzishome #theimaged #grammercollective #blogTO #wandering #itswhatido

The imitator dooms himself to hopeless mediocrity. The inventor did it because it was natural to him, and so in him it has a charm.
