JAMIE'S BLOG – YEAR 9 all I want for Christmas… – 31 days to go

30 Nov

{trust}  

There are 31 days left of The Promise 365!

The Christmas tree is up, the light are lit, the candles are flickering and all I want for Christmas is my two front teeth. Seriously….my front tooth chipped AGAIN this morning. 

It’s not the first time, in fact, there are many times that this has been chronicled on this blog, including this one. Alas, the joy of Christmas is here and I will plan to make a dentist appointment this week too. 

Over the years, I have learned when things like this happen I just need to fix it. And that brings me to another lesson I have learned over these nine years — most things are fixable. Sometimes they won’t be exactly the same, but it’s not worth sweating the small stuff… or the broken teeth, when you can always fix, repair or start again. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.Jamie

BLOG – GIFT DAY 289 :: the most expensive olive

16 Oct

In keeping with my promise to seek abundance, here’s my Abundance Photo of the Day… yeah… it’s my front tooth.  

My it-just-keeps-chipping front tooth. 

This is the “after” photo — after being all fixed up today at the dentist’s office.

What does this have to do with abundance you ask?  Well, good question.  For one, I have had this tooth fixed at least four (four, can that be right???) times in the last few years.

It just keeps chipping. This time it was at the hands of an olive.  What turned out to be a VERY expensive olive.

And I wouldn’t change it for the world.

Because it was the most abundantly awesome olive I could imagine. I was sitting at a bar in Ashland, Oregon with my bestie Sara, watching the Red Sox game, drinking a glass of Oregon wine, munching on an array of cheese, honey, salad and, of course, an olive.

I bit too hard in the right spot. I could feel the little chip circling my mouth as I let out a cry.

“Oh no!”  I turned to Sara with my most pitiful pouty face and she said…. “Your tooth?”

Yup. My tooth.
It’s quite annoying, this reoccurring theme over here.

So, today, I had the tooth fixed, again.

I am grateful that dentists know how to bond a little white resin to my front tooth and I don’t have to spend every waking moment running my tongue against the gaping hole pretending I don’t look like a hockey player who caught the puck one too many times.

But I am most grateful that Justin has health insurance and this little ditty only ran us a little over eighty dollars.

I think about that olive, one that turned out to cost $84, and I smile.  It’s priceless really.  A night out with my dear Sara, who traveled from Texas to see me. A few giggles and laughs, but most of all, a knowing look from a friend who understands me like a sister.  I didn’t even have to say what was wrong, she instantly knew.

That’s what friends are for.
In good time and bad times and all the chips in between.

Abundantly abundant love.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore {fearless}

Day 324: a saga of the chipped tooth and why you are smarter and stronger than you think

21 Nov

My tooth chipped.
AGAIN.

So today I ran to the dentist — well, I RAN to catch the train to go to the dentist.

It made me realize that there is nothing more humiliating for a One-And-Done Marathoner than to fall completely out of breath into a seat on the commuter rail — after running one block to catch the train. ONE BLOCK.

I suppose the lesson here is that it’s time to start some cardio again.

It was all worth it though, I have a new set of teeth:

And I learned another lesson today too. 

Since this was the FOURTH time — yes #4 — I have had this same front tooth fixed by the same dentist (Dr. Davis in Boston — he is absolutely fabulous! Highly recommend.) I decided to look up the metaphysical symptoms behind teeth problems.

Here’s what I found:

TEETH PROBLEMS: Being indecisive, not being able to break down ideas for analysis and decisions.

AFFIRMATION: I make my decisions based on the principles of truth, and I rest securely knowing that only right action is taking place in my life.

It has me thinking. Which I will keep doing because I have clearly not learned my lesson in the tooth department yet.

Speaking of lessons…

While sitting on the train I overheard a grandmother say to her five-year-old grandson:

“We are always smarter and stronger than we think.”

To which he said:

“Nana, you know what? You know what we should do sometime…We should go in a space machine!”

Well said.
I agree with both of you.

So I will choose to go back in time and not bite the nail that originally chipped my tooth. Even though I do know that is not possible I also know that I will be just fine.

Because we are always smarter and stronger than we think.
