JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 90 :: tulips…or standing out

31 Mar

Day 90: standing out.  

We saw the tulips today! And they were beautiful. Amazing. Gorgeous. Breathtaking. Okay… seriously, we have over 500 photos of them. We were a little inspired.

But they reminded me of something good. Standing out. Whether it’s with your message, marketing, memories or other important moments.

Sometimes being unique is as simple as standing out.
Be the yellow tulip in a field of reds.

And.. if you must do yoga in public… try a muddy field.

It’s enough to make you laugh.

And don’t forget to smell the tulips…. because they don’t smell at all. (News to me!!)

If nothing else… be the yellow tulip.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 89 :: a little light goes a long way

30 Mar

Day 89: Calm waters. 

Since we moved to the PNC I have never seen the water this calm in the bay. So, this morning as I walked towards the smell of coffee (Woods Coffee on the boardwalk) I had to stop and take in the view. And some photos too.

Yoga is up next… but first, some pretty blue photos.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 88 :: waterfall 

29 Mar

Day 88: Gravity. 

Through a walk in the forest today I was reminded about gravity. As in waterfalls.

Water goes where gravity takes it. Carving out a path without second-guessing, without hesitation, without pushing back. It just is where it is, whenever it is, how it is, passing by the scenery, falling to the earth, and then moving on.

Such a good reminder.
To be like water.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 86 :: spring was here

27 Mar

Day 86: Rainy days.

Yesterday was so Springy! And today was, well, not. But I did find what might be my new favorite coffee shop. Woods Coffee. Not in the woods however, this place is overlooking the harbor.

It hangs out on the boardwalk and pier overlooking Bellingham Bay. And while I had to walk through pelting rain to get there, it was worth the trip.

Even though I was missing the warm, spring sunshine, there’s something so purely calming about cozying up to a fire after being out in the cold.

I suppose that’s the power of contrast. Regardless, I am ready to spring forward into that sunshine wherever she may be…now, on to yoga…

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

26 Mar

Day 85: Hop, hop.

Before I do some yoga I’m just happy to say:
Spring. Is. Officially. Here.

And we prepared for the Easter Bunny today with a few creative treats.

Using fingernail polish!

Happy Easter!

Hopping along?

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 84 :: balance

25 Mar

Day 83: A little bit.

Doing yoga every day has me thinking about one very critical, necessary, of high import, often overlooked but very, very, very real thing: balance.

I don’t think about balance while I sit at my desk all day.
I don’t think about balance when I play with the dogs.
Or run after a tennis ball.
Or eat.

But when I follow a yoga instructor standing on one leg, wth the other leg straight out behind her in the air and hands out in front of her head (“Look Ma, no hands!”) I realize just how out of balance I am. And that’s about the time that I fall. Or stumble.

I think that’s the ironic thing about balance. You don’t realize you’re off kilter and about to tumble until both hands and one foot are off the ground. Then. Whamo. Balance knocks you upside the head.

So far into this year of yoga, I am learning to respect balance. The kind that comes from practicing just a little bit every day and the kind that comes from realizing when you have too many hands and feet off the ground.

And with that, in T minus 20 minutes I will officially be on vacation.
So that I can reclaim just a little bit more balance.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 83 :: a little giggle goes a long way

24 Mar

Day 83: Joy.

I was moved to giggles today watching this video from Soul Pancake. It’s amazing what a puppy can do… so little, so unassuming, so f*ing cute.

These puppies were delivered to a nursing home, a daycare and a gym. What do they all have in common? See for yourself:

It makes me realize a few things:
1. A few cute puppies could probably sell almost anything (including dog food)
2. There is nothing more moving than Joy

And now, I’m about to go get some yoga joy on.
Here’s hoping you have some joy in your day too.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 82 :: downward puppy day

23 Mar

Day 82: Our Pups.

It’s National Puppy Day — and for this Pup who is about to turn 15 it seems like quite the honor. Here’s our Pup a few years ago, standing on the pier of the island that we love.


And here’s a more mature Pup:

And here’s a flashback to our tiny Brady meeting Pup for the first time:

They change. We change. They grow. We grow. But they will always be our Pups.
So in their honor… I do a downward dog!

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie
