JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 310 :: soul candy

6 Nov
{sweet}

I was thinking a lot about sweetness today. The sweetness I had this weekend with my girlfriends. The sweetness of friendships. The sadness that it is now over and we are all home.

And, then, it popped into my head:  Soul Candy.
Having these sweet, sweet weekends together is just like candy for the soul. It’s so sweet and so good, and then, before you know it, it’s gone!

How kind (and so very sweet).
We all need a little candy for the soul.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 329 :: turkey thursday and leftovers

27 Nov

Happy Thanksgiving!
This was the only turkey we made around here today:

(recipe here)

The turkeys were a hit with the younger set at the dinner table  (not so much their parents — sorry!).  Maybe sometimes peak performance comes in trying a new recipe? Or maybe just a sugar high.

But something tells me these leftovers won’t be quite as satisfying.

More tomorrow. 
Lovemore,
Jamie

P.S. Still time to sign up. If you are a fan of Abraham-Hicks you will find my next peak performance interview quite interesting.  Click here to learn more.

Jamie’s BLOG – DAY 203 :: be fearless

22 Jul

I received this note today from a friend.

He wrote: “I found your candy wrapper”…

At first I thought it was some sort of spam email. Or game request from Facebook. But then I opened it and saw this:

And I had to smile. Thanks for the sweet reminder. Surgery in three days. But this is a lifetime commitment.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

BLOG – GIFT DAY 304 :: snickers

31 Oct

In keeping with my promise to seek abundance this year, here’s my Abundance Photo of the Day our leftover Halloween candy.

We have an ABUNDANCE of Snickers candy bars leftover from our Halloween handouts.

Good thing these bars are FUN sized or else we would be in double, double, toil and trouble. I thought we had a plethora of zucchini HAUNTING us this summer and now we have GOBS of chocolate bars sitting on our counter.

Alas, there is a solution for every problem — the freezer!
Ours is well stocked with BOTH zucchini and Snickers.

So if anything happens, say a visit from zombies or the apocolypse, I think we’re prepared.

Happy Halloween.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore {fearless}
Jamie

Day 314: sweet swear words

10 Nov

Interesting concept Justin shared with me today: the average American consumes 2 pounds of candy a month (24 pounds a year).

That’s like eating more than a pack of M&M’s every day.
This he picked up from watching The Biggest Loser.

And, this was me yesterday as we trolled, I mean, strolled the aisles at WALMART looking for a Crock-Pot (so that I can actually start cooking, I mean crocking).

I was dumbfounded by the amount of candy in this barrel.
It’s like every ten-year-old movie-goers dream.

Personally, I favored the Skittles over Hot Tamales or Nerds when I was a kid.  I eventually grew into Raisinets.  Mostly because I could justify the treat as a healthy choice — there are real raisins in there! But, these days, I am a no butter popcorn girl.

Sweet teeth aside, I have found that I reach for these comfort foods when stress sets in — well, I should say, I crave these comfort foods and I have yet to cave to them over this experiment (post cleanse).

Yet.

Today almost sent me over the edge, moving being one of my big triggers of stress.  And, we do it every 6 months, oh joy.

But, I think I found a new solution to this stress induced comfort craving — and Positive Psychology Daily News swears by it too!

According to this article, swearing (yes —bad words, bleeps, cussing) has been proven to reduce pain or frustration.

All in all, the traditional social norm that proclaims swearing is all bad does not conform to what we learn from science. Swearing can be beneficial in a physically painful situation and in a truly threatening circumstance.

That may be all the permission I need.
I just might try it tomorrow when we are moving the heavy furniture into our apartment.  Maybe we should alert the neighbors?

Hey, this year is about finding out what’s good for my head, heart, body and soul. And, if dropping an f-bomb is what it takes …well …let’s just say I am fully committed.

And, it’s good timing too— tomorrow is an F*ing Friday.
Instead of a mouth full of candy, I might just find myself with a mouth full of soap.
