JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 100 :: milestones and trips around the sun

13 Apr

It’s Day 100. A milestone in the year of Two Thousand Fifteen. Bliss is my promise this year, and while I’m not sure if I’ve had any major breakthroughs yet, I can say this: I do have perspective.

Today I connected with a dear friend who was just diagnosed with breast cancer. It was more than a surprise. So in her honor, tonight, I am republishing this blog post from a year ago: Secrets for a Successful Surgery

This month marks my trip around the sun since that mastectomy. Hard to believe. Happy to be here. Hoping this post helps others.

More than anything else in this past year I have been grasping step by step a deeper understanding of love. And in more ways than one that means letting go of fear. Ridding my life of it completely, focusing solely on the love.

That’s why I have changed my mantra from Lovemore Fearless to Love More Do More. But it’s still a process. I catch myself now and then with a lump of fear in my throat and in that moment I try to remind myself to breathe, to let in the love, to show up to that very moment with even more love in my heart.

I recently received a note from another dear friend of mine. In it he wrote something so poetic I think it’s worth sharing:

Can you love yourself no matter what your future holds? In other words can you love yourself as you are right now? And now? And now? String enough of those nows together and you’ll be a happy camper “Come rain or come shine,” as Marlene Dietrich sang.

So here’s to the love.
And happy campers.
And many more trips around the sun!

More tomorrow.

    I am so grateful that you have been around the sun since your surgery. May you circle the sun at least 100 more times. 🙂
