JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 317 :: life is beautiful – 48 days to go

13 Nov


{trust}  

There are 48 days left of The Promise 365!  Tonight I celebrate one of the most poignant lessons I have learned in this blogging adventure. It is simple and clear: focus on the beauty. 

I began working with a “Medicine Woman” after I spoke to all the doctors who recommended surgery. My medicine woman came into my life at the most perfect moment and precisely when I needed her most. She helped me prepare emotionally and spiritually for my upcoming surgeries but mostly she helped me “Focus on the beauty.”

In fact, it was her prescription for me to get through all three surgeries. So every single day I searched for beauty. I watched flowers bloom. I spotted puppies walking down the street. I planted a garden and gasped in awe at how a little purple flower turned into an eggplant.

I lived in awe of everything. Beauty was alive, I just needed to look for it. 

Focusing on the beauty did wonders for the ugliness in my life. It took my mind off of my worries. It redirected my energy. It reminded me that I was indeed alive, a creature of beauty, boldness and big things to do in this lifetime. It also introduced me to an entire ecosystem that I was completely ignorant about…one called Mother Nature.

That was years ago now, but the lessons of beauty have stayed with me. Every time I see a flower bloom, or a leaf pop, or a bird fly above my head, I am reminded that I am alive.

And life is beautiful. 

Trust me!

Trust is again reminding me of the lessons I have learned before. Today, it is that not every day is beautiful but we can still focus on the beauty. 

Here’s to focusing on the beauty.

2014 BLOG – DAY 88 :: focus on the beauty

29 Mar

Have you noticed a theme here lately?
Spring? Flowers? Beauty?

I hope so. It’s a fundamental shift in my brain. I am now officially looking for beauty. Not because it’s beautiful, because it’s important.

I will soon be scheduled for surgery (big boobies here I come!). It has been a surprise and a shock but I am choosing to focus on the good, the healthy, and the beautiful in each and every moment along the way.

I met with a wise woman this week and she made an excellent point — whatever we put in writing influences what we believe. And what we believe becomes our reality.

She left me with these words, “Focus on the beauty.”

So, given that piece of excellent wisdom, I will not be writing about my experience with my upcoming mastectomy. I will share what is good, and healthy and beautiful along the way, because I am on the lookout for beauty.

I choose beauty. I choose love and health.

I hope you will join me in that promise because I want to be surrounded with love and joy. I promise to send it back to you too!

Because, only love matters and there is so much beauty to see in each and everyday.

Like this…. an image my doctor sent me this week.

Focus on the beauty.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie
