    I really love the happier & healthier life one… “marry your best friend” 🙂

    And also #11 can’t get said enough “doing something everyday that terrifies you”–It makes so much sense in this way. You want to grow to be fearless, to get and give the most out of your life, not stay fearful of everything around you and doing minimal impact.
    Thanks for the share

    Great post! Definitely bookmarked. Loved the series that you’ve shared with us. I love that quote and it just gets so inspiring every time I read it. It was indeed a beautiful and mesmerizing shot of waves that’re full of ice. I really love this mag, it gives me a lot of inspiration about everything.

    Some stunning pictures of the iced out ocean! it looks bitterly cold though! I would be tempted to hibernate if I was there. I wonder how the wild life are doing, poor little things. 🙁

    Great finds. I really enjoyed the one about how to be happier and healthier. If everything else fails, go vegan!!! Eat healthy, live healthy, be happy. 🙂

    Those pictures of the frozen waves are awesome and I would have loved to have been there to see it. I’ve never seen or heard of this phenomenon before. I wish there was video to get the full effect. As crazy as our world has become, it’s nice to see that nature can still surprise us with a beautiful scene. 🙂

    Sensational pictures! Looks like every year the scientists who have said we are entering into another mini Ice Age get confirmation of it. I’m sure the people in these snowy areas would prefer to have global warming!

    I don’t get why people would ‘rescue’ these children. They are living with what they consider family only to be taken away by people who don’t understand them and will most likely poke and prod them and keep them locked up. The only reason I see to rescue them is if they’re a danger to humans or the environment or physically unhealthy because of their environment. But they are not!

    Loved these pictures of the frozen waves. Real people living real lives dealing with what nature throws at them. For some reason this made my day. A billion years before we were on this rock and a billion after we have gone, nature will be doing its thing!

    I would honestly rather be raised by wild animals. Humans don’t understand the values of certain things, they only know the value of money and power. If humans could live like any other animal, that would be great. I hate being controlled by humans when all they do is ruin the earth.

    I’ve always lived near the shore and seeing it frozen is mindblowing! I have seen almost every possible thing the ocean can do. From one corner of the world to another. This I have got to say tops anything!!!! Bravo to the photographer, having the sense to capture it.
