JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 292 :: trust in mondays

21 Oct


If there is one thing Monday brings me every single week it is this: another chance. Every week is a new beginning. It’s something yoga taught me every day in my year of yoga (a few years ago) to have a beginner’s mind or shoshin

Shoshin (初心) is a word from Zen Buddhism meaning “beginner’s mind.” It refers to having an attitude of openness, eagerness, and lack of preconceptions when studying a subject, even when studying at an advanced level, just as a beginner would.

Mondays remind me of shoshin

Thank you, Monday. In Mondays, I trust.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Day 359: and a fearless new year

26 Dec

Christmas is over.
The year is winding down.

Which makes me wonder…
Where did the time go?

And then I remember the good news…
We have an extra day this year.

Who cares if that extra day was in February?
We still have time to celebrate …right?

And, what better way to celebrate an old year than to make plans for a New Year.

It’s time to start over.
Hit the restart button.
Do a redo.
Begin again.

I love the sound of that.

It’s time to start over!
Hit the restart button!
Do a redo!
Begin again!

I, for one, want more abundance.
What do you want more of or less of next year?
What will you do different?

Day 234: 600!

22 Aug

Wooo hooo! Break out the champagne!

This is officially blog post #600.

Which means this promise has gone 600 days in a row with me writing, reflecting and posting. Not every day is superb, but every day has been recorded, all in the name of a promise.

And, that’s good enough for me.

Because something I have learned about myself and my promise in this process of letting go and going deeper, is this:  perfect is not what it’s cracked up to be.

But showing up, no matter what — now that is a pursuit worth perfecting.

What have you promised to do this year?
For yourself?  For others?

One thing I know is true. No matter where you are and no matter what you’ve done, you can always start over or begin again.

Tomorrow can always be Day #1.
