JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 191 :: trust moves

10 Jul


The air conditioner is broken, it’s too hot to cook, and it’s late. So we ordered Chinese food. I thought my fortune cookie said it best:

It’s time to get moving. Your spirits will lift accordingly.   

My fortune cookie knows of these Trust Moves. While we will be moving, physically, soon this year has me thinking about the trust moves it takes to change, adapt, flex and stay agile. It’s so easy to get set in our ways and cling to our things.

Ironically, we never seem to do that. Change is our middle name. So a little house move will be easy but I think my fortune cookie may know something I do not: your spirits will lift accordingly.

Sometimes that’s all we need in life, is a little change, to get moving. And since I asked for TRUST this year, I am trusting the process and excited to see what’s on the other side! We will know soon…

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 243 :: keeping promises

31 Aug

Fortune Telling.

I had a wonderful Chinese food dinner tonight with my official Mother-In-Law – how fun is that? And fortunate too in so many ways.

My fortune cookie actually said this when I cracked it open: “Keep the promises that you make.”

I mean, really?? How ironic is that? Since that is basically what I do best… promises. I show up every night here on this blog, keeping my promise to myself and to you, reading this on whatever night you may find me.

I am also keeping another promise to myself this year in a year of kindness — a 30-day promise! I will tell you more about it tomorrow. Promise.

More tomorrow….

Day 5: one “F”-ing year

5 Jan

I almost titled this blog One “F”-ing Year — really.

When I told my boyfriend this title he wrinkled up his nose and said: “isn’t that kind of negative?”

Which is exactly why I didn’t use it. I thought it might be too dreary, too much of a downer.

And this year is supposed to be an upper.

The reason I almost used the “F”-ing title is because I have become obsessed with F-words. Not “THE” F-word which I have to admit when used appropriately is very powerful.

Actually, I am obsessed with these very powerful F-words:


And then there are The Big Five:
1) Family
2) Friends
3) Fortune
4) Food
5) Failure

I have a developing hypothesis: (I am still working out the details so bare with me here) I think all my purchases really revolve around The Big Five. My reptilian brain lives to please, avoid, attract or placate The Big Five.

My shopping, my activities, my energy level, all listen to The Big Five. As well as what I choose to eat, wear, do, see, believe, and sometimes disregard.

The challenge: how to honor The Big Five and still listen my own heart, head, body and soul.

I’ll write more about this as the year evolves and my hypothesis, no doubt, will too.

And… please tell me: Am I missing an F-word on my list?
