JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 284 :: trust

13 Oct

{trust}  

I’m listening to an amazing program from MindValley. It’s about reprogramming your mind for total success and in the latest presentation, the message was to make what is unknown known and to make what is familiar unfamiliar. 

The timing couldn’t be more perfect. Today we started our cleanse (even though Brady started his yesterday). This means my familiar sweets, chocolates, and sugars will now have to become unfamiliar for at least a few weeks. Until then, I will make vegetables and green shakes my familiars. 

Here’s to the next 40 days!
Trust what you know, and know what you want. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 283 :: trust the calm

12 Oct

{trust}  

Tomorrow we start a cleanse, a 40-day cleanse. However, after today it will probably be a 35 day cleanse. Not because we will quit early or not make it all the way through the many, many shakes and plant-based foods. No, the reason has more to do with the bath I took today.

While I was in the bathrub I heard a noise downstairs. The more I listened the more I thought Brady was wrestling a plastic bag, which I assumed he got out of the recycling bin. He has taught himself how to open the recycling bin and dig out the contents. So imagine my surprise as I walked downstairs in my bath towel looking for a plastic bag and instead found an entire bag of green power shake opened up and dumped on top of the couch. It is obviously plant-based because it was bright green. And there was Brady licking his paws.

The more I looked the more I saw little bits of green shake mix all over the floor, the blankets, the rug and the beige couch. In every place where he had licked he rubbed the green mix even deeper into the fibers of the couch.

I panicked as I debated how to clean it out. Adding more water could stain everything. Adding a cleaner could bleach everything. So I did a little of both. I am happy to report that a handheld Dyson was able to vacuum up most of it. The rest seems to have disappeared with a little water, cleaner and elbow grease. 

Brady disappeared too, right down to his kennel where he knows to go when he is in trouble. He’s one smart dog. He also, apparently, liked the power shake mix which maybe is a good sign for the next 35 days.

Maybe it’s a lesson in staying calm. If nothing else, it’s a reminder that we can trust Brady to sniff out any kind of food. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 275 :: trust & synchronicities

4 Oct

{trust}  

I don’t know if it’s the power of social media or the power of New Orleans but this little town has some amazing synchronicities. Including a surprise call today that my beloved cousins will happen to be here tomorrow, while I am still here on a work trip.

The best part is that this same thing happened last year on this same business trip too – it just happened to be Nashville. Call it ironic or voodoo but I couldn’t be more excited about this amazing coincidence one year later.

Let the good times roll! 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 272 :: happy

1 Oct

{trust}  

I laughed a lot today. At a doctor’s appointment no less. I had my annual exam and pap smear, which I find to be the funniest word ever. Smear. Like it’s some sort of topping for toast. It isn’t, by the way, in case you have never had one.  

Right before the pap smear ensued I was asked to dress down and don the fabled paper gown. So I did, except for my bra, because you know, the girls are fake so it doesn’t matter anymore. I guess I forgot to tell my new doctor this because when she started my annual exam she opened up my gown and frowned at me. “Why are you wearing your bra?” 

I looked at her and laughed. “Oh, I forgot to tell you, these are fake.” 

She laughed. I laughed even harder.
Then she said, “You’re right, don’t need to examine those.” 

As we laughed even harder I realized that I forgot to tell her something else. Two night ago I did a body scrub made with Turmeric which turned the bathtub and my toes and fingers temporarily yellow. As I explained this to my new doctor I warned her that I may have other skin parts that were yellow from it too, so not to be alarmed. 

She laughed again.  
I laughed all the way through the procedure. 
She called me “Tumeric Toes.”
And then we laughed some more. 

I have never had more fun at a doctor’s office. Or laughed harder. Which is a welcome change in my life and truly underscores the theory that laughter is the best medicine. 

And, joy is a simple thing. A very powerful, simple thing. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 269 :: trusting the wind

28 Sep

{trust}  

It was a beautiful fall day today with a light breeze. Even though it was hot outside the breeze made it comfortable. It got me thinking about trusting the direction the wind blows. The wind at our backs and the wind that blows us in new directions. 

Stand tall against the wind but trust the direction it blows. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 268 :: trusting home

27 Sep

{trust}  

It’s Friday night and I am home sweet home, sitting on the couch watching movies and feeling the sense of rest and relief that only a Friday night can bring. I love traveling and adventure but I also love home. I love the candles lit on my fireplace throwing the light of comfort on the walls. I love the snuggling puppy at my side circled up under a fuzzy blanket.

Just after my movie finished another popped up on the screen, one called Idaho. It’s ironically the first place I called home. As I watch the beautiful scenes from the state where I grew up I find it refreshing that it feels just as familiar as the state where I now live.

We have actually lived in so many states over the years that it’s hard to know which place is really our home. We have moved six times in ten years but each place has held a thread of us. Weave them all together and we have a blanket called home.

I think that’s because home is not really a place, it’s rather a feeling The one inside of you that feels like trust. So here’s to snuggling up at home on a Friday night. The best kind of way to end a week. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 267 :: trust the future

24 Sep

{trust}  

Just a little nod to the future tonight. 

Sometimes it is hard to trust the future, especially when daily life and happenings and news and politics can be depressing and draining or downright sad. So today, I say, let’s focus on the future and what we can do right, well and good. Let’s believe in it.

Sometimes trust is just a belief and we have power over it. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

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
