JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 266 :: welcome fall

23 Sep


{trust}  

Welcome Fall. Today is your day!

When the seasons change I usually notice the subtle difference in the world around me, including the new colors and the change in the breeze. Even though today was almost 90 degrees I could still feel that first day of Fall all around me in living color. 

More than anything I heard the words of my dear teacher in my mind. “Notice the beauty” her words came back to me. “Focus on the beauty.” 

She taught me a little about plants and flowers but mosllt she taught me the power of nature’s beauty. No wonder I felt her with me today as Mother Nature begins to dress up for the Fall Ball in her leaves of gold and red and bright orange. 

Welcome Fall. I’m excited to see the beauty you bring! 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 226 :: bloom beauty bloom!

14 Aug

{trust}  

It’s the height of summer and the flowers are still in bloom. The little rose bush outside my window still looks at me every morning with pink blooms. And I notice it. Mostly because it’s bright pink but also because it stands out against a green backdrop. 

It’s a good lesson in being different and uniquely beautiful. Sometimes the most beautiful things are the ones that aren’t afraid to stand out.   

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 195 :: trust the beginnings

14 Jul

{trust}  

This year of trust is giving me new perspectives in so many ways. It’s funny how focusing on something, even a word like Trust, brings clarity. It also brings experiences that lineup and deliver on the word.

Case in point, today we left all of our belongings and allowed a bunch of strangers to walk through our townhouse without any supervision. Except for a realtor, of course. It’s a massive test of trust. We removed the important things like jewelry and precious collectibles, but it’s hard to remove everything that is meaningful when you have no other place to put it yet.

We enjoyed a nice drive along the shore while hoping everything would be in its place when we returned. It was.

Trust is a noun and a verb. It is also a state of being. One that makes you breathe deeply and let go. So far this year, I am learning that letting go is not giving up and trusting is not rolling over. Rather, it is finding the beauty and the beginnings in each moment. 

When you trust, you do not see the end. You create the beginning. 
So, here’s to beautiful beginnings! 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 188 :: trust the beauty

7 Jul

{trust}  

We drove the south coastline today winding through little seaside towns and beautiful picturesque downtowns and stores. It made me think about my very first promise not to shop, because, I was shopping in the most wonderful sense of the word. 

Jaynane and I were together, shopping and oohing and ahhing at all the little beautiful things looking for dresses and skirts and jewelry and presents. This is a partnership I know well, it is one my Mama Sling taught to me. To appreciate beauty. Not in the sense of the torrid and turbulent definition of beauty standards but to appreciate the beauty within. 

Because beauty is a feeling. 

I used to think beauty was a very specific thing, a look, a shape, a fabric, a cut, a design, an art. But it’s really the art of feeling. And when we feel we are alive. We are here. We are present. 

Which is the best present of all. 
Trust the beauty within. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Trust is again reminding me of the lessons I have learned before. Today, it is that not every day is beautiful but we can still focus on the beauty. 

Here’s to focusing on the beauty.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 137 :: surviving fake news

15 May
{clear}

I was thinking a lot today about how to avoid bad news, fake news, and any barrage of negativity. I decided the best course is always to keep to your vision, stay focused on the end game and stay clear — as we know, Mama Sling once told me, “the clearest one wins.”

Then, of course, there is always love, beauty, joy and …chocolate. It’s National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day so by all means, go celebrate. I’ve always thought every restaurant should offer small, mini chocolate chip cookies as a dessert option. Warm. Right off the sheet. Why not? I would order it every single time. Maybe that’s the solution to a bad news cycle …a little bit of joy and a lot of chocolate chip cookies.  

So here’s to love, joy, beauty, and chocolate chip cookies.
More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 42 beauty

13 Feb
{blooming}

The flowers are starting to sprout and bloom outside my window. The leaves are poking through the ground and getting ready to shoot up and blossom.


Part of me feels like it might be too early. Part of me cannot wait to see those pops of color and meet my flower friends again.

It has me thinking about beauty. And SPRING! And of course, joy. I gain so much joy from the beauty of flowers. And their power to spring out of the ground right at the perfect time of year.

Sometimes the most beautiful things are right in front of my nose. Leaves sprouting. Birds chirping. Sunshine outside my window!! Now, that feels like the most beautiful thing I could imagine after a long rainy Pacific Northwest winter.

One more lesson of joy.
Beauty comes in many forms. The secret is to recognize it in front of you. 

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 267 :: renew

23 Sep

Haircut Day.

Today was haircut day! And it feels like the kindest (intentional) act of the week for me. So fresh. So new. So good!

Why does a new haircut feel so good? And kind? I’m not entirely sure, but I know this: it’s all in the heart.

Catching kindness?

More tomorrow….

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 264 mother nature

20 Sep

Kindness.

I stopped and paused tonight to view this sunset.
Mother Nature shared this beauty…what an act of kindness!

So beautiful. So kind. Especially in light of all the weather patterns around the world. Sometimes I wonder if we need the contrast in order to appreciate the beauty and the sun that sets every night.

More tomorrow….

Lovemore,
Jamie
