JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 187 :: travel tuesday

12 Jul

Day 187: Meditation Room.

I forgot to yoga today.. and now my plane is delayed. I must find an airport corner to do something calming. I also forgot to find the meditation room here at SEATAC airport. Apparently, there is one.

Instead, I found the Starbucks. Or, at least one of the Starbucks. And some coffee.

And now, I’m almost off on a jet plane. But before I fly, I wonder what would happen if airports had as many meditation rooms as they have Starbucks?

There’s an idea….the perfect airport:

  • Meditation rooms at every corner (instead of TV’s blaring bad news).
  • Electrical outlets at every chair (instead of one at a post that has fifteen people sitting on top off each other waiting their turn).
  • Seats without bars for armrests (so you can lay down somewhere while delayed).
  • I might even add a pet store too… you know, just to see cute puppies. (How calming would that be?)

Then again, maybe just a meditation room would fix all of the above.
And now, I must find a spot to do yoga…

More tomorrow.

7 Dec

I think peak performance in an airport is as good as finding a power outlet.

And I’m not above sitting on the floor to pack in the power that this computer and phone need to live on, to keep me powered up.

And it looks like I’m not the only one!

On time. On schedule. Plugged in.

GIFT DAY 065: what would debbie ford do?

6 Mar

Yesterday I wrote about fear-less-ness.

Today, this workshop popped into my inbox:

Overcoming Fear by Debbie Ford

It’s Debbie Ford’s 8-week course she created for DailyOM. (Proceeds from her courses will benefit her son, Beau.)

Ironically tonight I am in the airport, afraid I might get stuck in a storm.

airport, thepromisedaily.com, thepromise365
There is another massive storm brewing on the east coast.

Flights are delayed everywhere.

So I moved my flight up a day in hopes that I will indeed make it out of Dodge. Stormville. Blizzardopolis. Shovel Town. Whatever we are calling Boston this winter…

It wasn’t my plan.
It caught me off-guard.

So off-guard …I was in Boston for a dentist appointment today when I made the decision to leave a day early.

So off-guard …I have no baggage full of clothes or shoes with me for my trip.

The good news? I know I can do it. I’ve done it before with even less.

Ever since I made my promise not to shop for clothes or shoes for one year I learned how to handle these situations with less fear and more grace.

I also learned how to ask for help.

So today, while at my dentist appointment, I asked my dentist for a toothbrush and floss to take with me. I also asked my Boston friend Sheryl if I could borrow some shirts before I fled to the airport.

They both said yes.

So off to Chicago I go.
With the lightest baggage. EVER.

I plan to buy a new pair of shoes when I get to Chicago.
Because I can.

But I know it will all work out exactly as it should. Exactly as it will. With borrowed clothes, a new toothbrush, and faith.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore (fearless),

Day 28: hard to say goodbye

28 Jan

I’m sitting in the renovated Nassau airport, surrounded by beautiful sculptures, conch shell jewelry, and tourists waiting for their plane to go home.

And a crying baby.
I want to cry too.

Because it’s so hard to leave the land of vacation.  Maybe this little baby next to me is upset that his vacation is ending.  I suppose my fellow passengers wouldn’t be as understanding if I went into airport hysterics.

After swimming in the turquoise blue water, soaking in the sun, and overcoming my fear of deep ocean water by swimming with the inhabitants of coral reefs (and with sharks, no less!), I feel like a new woman returning home.

It also feels like I’m leaving a little bit of my soul behind in the beautiful blue water.

And, it’s hard to say goodbye.

You’d think it would be easy, shedding this part of me that lives in fear.  You’d think I would welcome with open arms the chance to change.  But, I’m realizing, it’s not easy to give up the fear I have worn in the past because it feels so comfortable against my skin.

But, I’m ready.
I’m ready to say goodbye to that part of me.
And, it feels a little scary.

Actually, it feels a bit like this bird I caught on camera taking a leap off the end of the dock. Who know’s what’s out there?

But I know in my heart, this journey with more love and less fear is preparing for takeoff.  And, it’s time to fly.
