JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 239 :: trusting it all

27 Aug

{trust}  

Tonight I am reflecting on what it takes to trust and learn.

And that brings me to Laughter. I am laughing a little on the inside, at the realization that the joke has been on me. This year of Trust has given me many twists and turns and you know what the pattern keeps coming back to? Trusting myself. 

They say when the student is ready the teacher appears. And, now, my dearest teacher is in hospice. There is irony in this situation, being that this is the year that I am learning to trust and it appears it will also be the year when she is learning to leave. The two may intersect and while it wouldn’t surprise me, still I am shocked. 

She is the one who taught me to trust it all to matter. She taught me to trust the moments of confusion, and the moments of clarity, for each, have a valuable lesson to bring forward. She taught me that it all matters… and I mean ALL. 

When a spider would show up on my window she would ask me to trust it (not to kill it). When a flower bloomed she taught me to honor it. When an animal appeared she taught me to thank it. She was trained in Native American ways and in her teachings she taught me that everything mattered. Everything had a message. Everything had a purpose. 

So with that, I am left with this: the student has become the teacher. Through her lesson plan, I have ultimately been taught to trust myself. Silly me, not realizing that this was her plan all along. 

Now, as she prepares to leave I also know that she will never be gone. This is, in a way, the final test and possibly my graduation. And since I know that everything matters, I know that she will choose the perfect moment to leave and the perfect moment to remind me that lessons and love live on. 

They always do.
Trust me.

More tomorrow.
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 196 :: trust from the heart

15 Jul

{trust}  

Life is a journey. And this journey of blogging seems to always lead me back to the heart.

While trust is the theme of this year, my heart is getting a workout. Trust is an invisible force and quite delicate, but oh, so powerful. So tonight, I am sitting with trust in my heart. We have a choice to make about where we will move to next and there are many, many options but now…. we must choose between security and adventure, savings and spendings, winter or spring.

Choice is a wonderful thing. It is freedom. It is fierce. It is clarity. It is strength. Choice is a gift. But it requires trust. 

Tonight Trust is whispering to me… Choose from the heart!  

Trust me!
More tomorrow.
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 76 :: the clarity of joy

19 Mar

{no limits}

I was thinking about joy today — and what came to me was this: joy has no limits.

Who are you without any limits?
And…What kind of joy would live in there?

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 41 :: clarity

12 Feb
{promises}

I have been thinking a lot about clarity lately. Ever since my mother whispered in my ear in the middle of a dream. She said, “The clearest one wins.” 

It has me thinking about clarity. What is clarity? What is it like to be super clear about everything that you want? What does it feel like to have a relentless focus on a singular sensation that leads to getting exactly what you want? Maybe even more!

Is that a stepping stone to joy?

I think it has something to do with it. Dream. Focus. Manifest. Joy!  It goes beyond goal setting. It’s an inside job.

I see it every day with Justin. There is a short list of things that he loves:

  • The New England Patriots
  • Pearl Jam
  • Star Wars
  • Our Puppies
  • His Family
  • Me

Maybe not exactly in that order but he is relentlessly committed to that short list of items. He has extreme clarity. And each one brings him extreme joy. (Okay, maybe with one exception of me on the days when I’m no joy to be around… I promise there are only a few…really.)

Anyway, my point is this. Or rather, Mama Sling’s point.
“The clearest one wins.”

I believe words are medicine. And I believe I just received some in my sleep. I love it when I have a Mama Sling dream. I love it, even more, when she visits me in my sleep and I remember it the next day. And, that, definitely goes on my short list.

May the clearest one win.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 10 :: kind eyes

10 Jan

Clear.

I’ve heard the saying of having “kind eyes” but today I was actually kind to mine. My new eyeglasses arrived!

As I put them on my nose and nestled them into place the whole world became clear. Crystal clear. It’s amazing how blurriness can just creep in while you don’t realize it is happening.

It was a good reminder for me too.
Kindness is all about being clear. Crystal clear.
In every aspect of life. Even when it comes to the parts that do all seeing.

More tomorrow, kind soul.
Lovemore,
Jamie

P.S.  Challenge #1 is on through tomorrow!  Are you Practicing Respect?
If you choose to accept this challenge, try one of the following acts:
– admire someone with kind words
– point out a particular and appreciated detail with kind words
– use thoughtful words to compliment someone on an achievement

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 217 :: clear clarity

11 Aug
A funny thing happened while blogging last night. First of all, I was tired. It was late and I had been traveling all day. Unfortunately I wasn’t very clear in my blissful blogging.

Let me be clear now… I did not have any medical emergencies yesterday. I was, however, on a plane (and train before that) where other people had medical emergencies. Thus the delay. And the long day(s).

Thus the confusion. I am so sorry to be unclear and then, of course, worry a few lovely readers who reached out today to see if I was okay. Oy vey! My bad. All my apologies. But rest assured all is well here in The Windy City where I find myself tonight.

It’s a good reminder to me though. Being clear is clearly important. Even when we are tired. Or delayed. There’s something nice about being clear — clearly understood, clearly defined, clearly communicated, clearly cared for.

Such is bliss?

More tomorrow.
Lovemore, 
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 327 :: seeing clearly

25 Nov

It’s time. My glasses are goners. I need a new pair that will sit on my nose properly. These specs are all stretched out, plus it’s time for the new prescription anyway.

It makes me reflect on the fact that it’s hard to have peak performance when your glasses are slowly becoming out of date. Or sliding down your nose.

And so, a trip to the optician is in my future! Fun!

It also gives me pause about clarity. If there is one thing that this year has taught me, it is the power of being clear. The power of thinking clearly. And how that leads to a clear path of where you want to go.

Granted, a breast cancer diagnosis was a fast pass to clarity for me. Still, clarity is a gift.

So…. Are you clear about where you are going and what you want?

What do you see in your future?

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie
