JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 363 :: giving it all 

28 Dec

Day 363: You’ve Got.

Well, 2016…. my, my, my. So many surprises. Today we send off Debbie Reynolds. I was touched by this quote I found of hers:

“I gave it all that I had, and it’s gratifying that others seem to be receiving it so well.”
-DEBBIE REYNOLDS

It seems fitting in so many ways. And it has me asking myself the same thing. Have I given it all that I had?

Have you?

This year was a year of yoga for me. And did I give it all I’ve got? Hum… I’m not sure. I certainly know I gave in to yoga each day. But did I give it all? Not sure how to measure that.

I know I failed at the Yoga Shred. But at least I started and learned and gained more knowledge. Christmas kind of landed in the middle of it, so it took a break.

I know I blogged every single day. And that, my dear, feels like the real win here. But did I give it ALL I’ve got? Not sure. Sometimes I admittedly phoned it in.

And that brings me to this: Showing Up.

I believe in showing up. I believe in doing my best. I believe in being present. I believe in trying my hardest. I’m not sure I string each of those elements together every single day but I show up. I show up. I show up.

And that, it seems, is giving it my best shot. And, truly where the magic happens.

Namaste, Showing Up. Namaste.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

27 Dec

Day 361: 2016.

Well, 2016. You are going out with a bang aren’t you?

Bon voyage, Carrie Fisher.

Feels like I just saw you last night at the movie theater. And, I did due to some pretty amazing CGI.

And so, 2016, you continue to be full of surprises. All the more reason for us to focus on what matters most. I will be focusing on yoga for a few more days and then…. on to the next promise!

What will 2017 bring you?
What are you focusing on?
What is your NEXT new year going to be all about?

Namaste, Surprises. Namaste.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YOGA DAY 4 :: little moves, big things

4 Jan

Day 4. Little Moves.

I changed it up today and did yoga twice. TWICE! 

Before you get all excited, just know that they were each very small routines. One in the morning when I woke up and one just now as I prepare to go to bed.

But it has me thinking about little moves. Small things. In my working world I’m always looking for the “small hinges” that will move big doors. Those are the levers to work first, to create with, to move, to build, to prioritize. And so it is that this yoga goal for 366 (leap year!) days has begun – with small moves. 

Tonight I refreshed my goal board.  The chalkboard that hangs on my wall in front of me all year long.


It’s a reminder of the promises I make to myself. And there’s a lot of wisdom in that — making a promise to yourself (instead of somebody else). 

Much like putting the oxygen mask on yourself before your child in an event of a cabin pressure moment (you know the spiel) – yoga is beginning to look like the small moves that put energy back into my body before I give it all away to the world, work, wonder, worry and all the other whosie-whatsits around me.

If you want to learn more about small hinges, I recommend the book The One Thing

Little things. Small moves. Big deal.
And with that I feel like I should start saying Namaste at the end of these posts. Maybe I will. Namaste. Namaste? Oh heck, why not….it’s a small move.

Namaste! 

More tomorrow. 
Lovemore,
Jamie
