2014 BLOG – DAY 33 :: the power of #12

2 Feb

Before I down some NyQuil the power of winning is on my mind. 

And #12.
Where we just came from #12 meant winning in the form of Tom Brady. Now, in the Pacific Northwest, #12 means something else.

The Twelfth Man.

Tonight, it also meant an incredibly boring game but a really amazing win.

And, I believe no matter the team or the coast the fans do make a difference.

I’ve written about this before. It’s based on The Joy of Sox.

The Joy of Sox describes the power of invisible forces, energy and fans. You can read more here. Need more proof, check out this video on metronomes syncing.

I might be sneezing and coughing but my heart goes out to all the Seahawks fans.
Here’s to #12 for 2014.

(And may 2015 be in favor of Tom Brady and The Pats.)

More tomorrow.

Congratulations Seattle!

2014 BLOG – DAY 2 :: new year: what’s your goal?

2 Jan

Where do you want to be in 365 days?
What about by 2015? 2020?

What do you want to learn, build, do, see?
And what better day to start than…well… today!

So today I announce my promise for this year. 
I hemmed and hawed about what to choose. I considered a promise to do yoga every single day for a year… or even just work out. Exercise. Something!

Then I landed on what my heart really desires: doing my best in every situation. 
Otherwise known on as Peak Performance.

Peak Performance is characterized as a state in which the person performs to the maximum of their ability. The effects are feelings of confidence, effortlessness and total concentration on the task.

YES!
That’s what I want this year. I want to take my game to the next level. I want to rev it up. Do more. Get more. Be more … and do it with happiness and ease.

So that is my goal.
I will be right here, every night, writing about what I discover, what unfolds and what happens. If there is anything I have learned in this adventure in promise making for 365 days it is this:

The THING that you think SHOULD happen never does… but what is SUPPOSED to happen will.

Peak performance is my goal.
What is yours?

More tomorrow.
Lovemore {fearless}

BLOG – GIFT DAY 365 :: abundance & what 2013 taught me (3 years blogging!)

31 Dec

Happy New Year!  

Boom!
What a year!
First of all, let me say thank you. If you have been with me this far I am grateful. Today marks 3 full years of blogging EVERY single day. Three years!!!  Just another proof point that you can do anything. Really, you can.

So to The Year of 2013 this is what I have to say to you: 

Thank you for teaching me the true nature of abundance. I had grand visions of uncovering the amazing secrets of abundance when this year began. Would I discover gold? Win the lottery? Both? 

I had a grand scheme to give away a gift a day every single day of 2013. 

Turns out, Ms. Abundance, you had a much bigger lesson in store for me. 
(By the way I believe abundance is female… I don’t know why but let’s go with it.) 

I started the year …giving.

I was inspired by the book 29 Gifts and the promise of abundance by giving something away everyday for a month. Except, in my true Type A personality nature, I vowed to take on 365 days of gifts. (Take that universe!)

Turns out I failed.  

First we had a storm.
Not just any storm — a blizzard + hurricane + nor’easter + snowpocalypse.

We were lucky that our house on the beach was still standing since so many neighbors lost so much. (It was a miracle.)

Then, I begged Justin to go to the Boston Marathon with me and we ended up staying home.  We never could have imagined what would happen that day.

And then, out of nowhere, a lump in my throat appeared.

Then we moved across the country!

And landed in Oregon!

We grew a garden (with a TON of zucchini!!)

The lump in my throat came out and was benign… woo hoo!!

The Red Sox won the World Series.

We fostered a puppy! And passed the Foster 101 test (by finding her a home).

We partied in Seattle (Pearl Jam 2013) with Lightning Bolts!

And then unwrapped the season with family.

Through it all I have learned so much about abundance.

So maybe my gift-giving scheme didn’t work out the way I planned. But in the end I learned so much about abundance.

Health is the greatest wealth.
Family is a precious resource.
Friends are gold!

Abundance comes from so many things.
And there is nothing more powerful than the heart.

So here’s to 2014. May it be a year full of miracles, love, and abundance!
Cheers to you!

More tomorrow.
Lovemore {fearless}

{happy new year!}

BLOG – GIFT DAY 364 :: the abundance quiz

30 Dec

How prosperous are you?  

Since this year was a year of abundance (at least my promise!) it only seems fitting to share a quiz that monitors your prosperity.

Interested?
Check it out here: Prosperity Quiz

The questions are easy and no matter how you score it will help question your thinking.

Do you believe in abundance?
Do you have an abundant mindset?
Take the quiz to find out!

Tomorrow officially ends this promise of abundance for me… but it’s just the beginning really.

I have learned so much over this year and this promise. 
I started out questioning others about what abundance means to them…. and the answer I received over and over again had to do with food and feasting!

But I now know in my heart it means so much more.

So see you here tomorrow where I will share all I learned and we will celebrate and wrap up and most important… kick of 2014!!!

More tomorrow.
Lovemore {fearless}
Jamie
