JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 225 :: choosing

13 Aug


It’s only Tuesday and it already feels like Friday! Maybe that is a good thing? Maybe it is a choice. I have been thinking much about choices lately, the ones we choose and the ones we let others choose for us — namely when it comes to attitude.

Attitude, it seems is the only thing that we have control over, and choice. To choose our attitude no matter the circumstances.

One time, a while ago, I did a No Complaint Challenge. The gig was to count the number of days in a row that you could rack up not complaining. It was, well, challenging. There are so many ways to complain, and so many little under the breath or to the side gripes that count in the complaint department. But complaining is not a reaction, it is, rather a choice.

There are so many reasons to have a good attitude, we just have to choose one. 

It’s amazing how the world changes when we make different choices. 

Trust me!

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 303 :: great-full

1 Nov
It’s officially November. I’m curious what the last two months of the year will bring. As this peak performance promise starts to wrap up I’m also overwhelmed with gratitude.

Gratitude being the universal theme for November.

For me there is so much to be grateful for…just getting through this year is a small feat and accomplishment. But I couldn’t have done it without a village of support.

And that makes me want to change the word around.

Great – Full.
Great – Full – Ness.

It’s all a state of mind, a feeling really, an appreciation of the greatness that happens everyday in so many small but meaningful ways.

How are you feeling Great-Full?

More tomorrow. 


 {who can you fill with greatness?}

Day 17: new dresses and new dreams

17 Jan

Oh, happy day, indeed.
Today was Vision Day with Debbie Phillips.   A day to plan, dream, focus and create new goals for the year ahead and celebrate the year that has passed.

It was also a day for me to try on something new — a new dress.
As I surveyed my closet this morning, and stared down the clothes I have worn over and over again for the past year, I yearned to wear something new.

And then I saw the new dress.
I haven’t had a new dress in my possession for over a year now.  This new dress came to me in the form of a Christmas present (thanks Jill!).

Just slipping into this sunny number made me feel like a new person, taking a step into a new year.  In a very subtle way, it made me feel ready for new dreams too.

Because clothes are powerful.
It’s no secret that I love clothes.  I love how they make me feel, how they change my attitude and how they define my day.

But, dreams are more powerful.
And I love them even more — for how they make me feel, how they change my attitude and how they define not just my day, but the entire year ahead.

If there is anything I learned from last year, it is the importance of investing in myself, in my future and in my dreams (instead of my wardrobe!).

How are you investing in your dreams?

Here’s to your dreams, goals, plans and purposeful living as we take on this new year.

(And maybe, just maybe, there will be a new dress along the way too!)
