JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 317 :: life is beautiful – 48 days to go

13 Nov


There are 48 days left of The Promise 365!  Tonight I celebrate one of the most poignant lessons I have learned in this blogging adventure. It is simple and clear: focus on the beauty. 

I began working with a “Medicine Woman” after I spoke to all the doctors who recommended surgery. My medicine woman came into my life at the most perfect moment and precisely when I needed her most. She helped me prepare emotionally and spiritually for my upcoming surgeries but mostly she helped me “Focus on the beauty.”

In fact, it was her prescription for me to get through all three surgeries. So every single day I searched for beauty. I watched flowers bloom. I spotted puppies walking down the street. I planted a garden and gasped in awe at how a little purple flower turned into an eggplant.

I lived in awe of everything. Beauty was alive, I just needed to look for it. 

Focusing on the beauty did wonders for the ugliness in my life. It took my mind off of my worries. It redirected my energy. It reminded me that I was indeed alive, a creature of beauty, boldness and big things to do in this lifetime. It also introduced me to an entire ecosystem that I was completely ignorant about…one called Mother Nature.

That was years ago now, but the lessons of beauty have stayed with me. Every time I see a flower bloom, or a leaf pop, or a bird fly above my head, I am reminded that I am alive.

And life is beautiful. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.Jamie
