JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 337 :: joy is blue sky thinking

3 Dec

{budget season} 

How did it get to be December? Beyond that, how did it get to be December 3rd already? The countdown is on to the new year and I am looking back over this year with great reflection. 

It’s also budget season so I am reflecting on many things — what worked, what didn’t, what to do next. And I’m also saving a few moments for dreaming too. Blue sky thinking. Thinking not grounded in anything yet but possibilities. 

– what to blog about next year? 
– annual budgets? 
– what to do for my career, family, friends, hobbies…. and so much more!

This is the best time of year — the most wonderful time of year — it’s a little moment to start daydreaming about next year before it’s too late.  

More tomorrow…

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 24 :: spa bliss

24 Jan
If a dog is Man’s Best Friend then the spa just might be a girls. Or mine. Okay, I can’t choose, I love our pups more than a spa … but sometimes a girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do.

Spa Day!

Today my hairdresser had extra time so she styled my hair. I cannot tell you the last time I sat to have my hair styled …. STYLED with a curling iron.  It sort of felt like a teenage version of myself getting ready to go to the Prom.  As I left the spa in a cloud of hairspray I felt my bubble burst. My hair was way to prettified to go home. 

Going home felt like such a boring answer to my glorified styled up hairdo. Ironically as I drove myself through the familiar streets on my boring path home, there was an NPR program dedicated to power of boredom.

The program was all about boredom and how it literally doesn’t exist anymore. The death of boredom as we knew begins at the first hint of our minds screeching to a halt because we grab the cell phone in our purse and find something to occupy the minds.

Which is a brilliance killer. Apparently boredom bears brilliance or at least leads to more creativity.  Now that’s something to ponder (when you’re not looking at your phone!).

As I arrived home with my curled up  hair I realized one of the reasons why I love going to the spa. It’s a break. It’s a moment when I can’t be disturbed. While my head is in the sink or under the hot lamps my mind lets go and drifts to something it hasn’t had time for …day dreaming.

So maybe daydreaming is part of the path to bliss?
Hold the phone. Let me think about that. 

More tomorrow.
