JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 24 :: be like the billy goat

24 Jan


{trust}  

Someone very wise recently told me to think of the billy goat. 

Because trust is like the billy goat – surefooted and confidently marching up a craggy, rocky mountainside. The billy goat doesn’t look down or examine all the potential pitfalls of their path. They move forward with swift confidence and surefooted fire.

I am trusting that this message will get to those who need it most tonight. Whatever it is in your way, or in your sights, be like the billy goat. Trust your footing, one step at a time. 

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 1 :: new year, new promise

1 Jan


{trust}  

It’s baaaaaaaaack!!

It’s a new year and a new day with a new promise. 2019 is the 9th year of this blogging promise and while it seems like I have already explored so many BIG issues (self-care, love, abundance, peak performance, kindness, bliss, yoga, joy….) it’s time to explore something new. 

Trust. 

As in trusting the process, trusting myself, trusting life and allowing all that is to be, well, to be. Trust is a good word. It’s a strong and serious word. 

Trust: a firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something.

I’m sure trust will come with many lessons that I cannot even imagine as I sit here at the beginning of the year. It’s kind of scary, actually. You see, every time I make a promise something happens. Something big. Something I can’t quite see this early in the year but it’s out there waiting for me to walk the path and explore the possibilities.

For instance, when I made a promise not to shop I found the power of love. When I made a promise of “peak performance” I received a year of surgeries and ended up with the NIKE swoosh in a series of scars across my chest. Last year, when I made a promise for “joy” I found a new job, new city and new adventure on the east coast. I never know what will happen, but I will report back here every day.

So today, this is my report. 

As I walked into the NEW YEAR I did not expect to tumble into 2019. But I did. Right down the stairs. I have been lying down ever since with my right foot elevated, covered in ice. There were a few Advils mixed in there too. 

It was not what I had planned for my last day of vacation and first day of the year. I had lists of things to do and stuff to organize and prepare before going back to work. My foot had another idea, apparently. It wanted to be raised high in the sky atop a mountain of pillows for the entire day, pulsating, swollen and bruised. 

The swelling has gone down now that I am in my pajamas and ready for bed. While my foot is still sore I can’t help but think of the irony. Day One of this promise and I am laid up, on a bed, forced to rest. I can only TRUST that this is what my body needed today, a little R&R, a lot of sleep and a few movies to calm my nerves.

So, the first lesson of this Year of Trust is to look before you leap. And, if you tumble, be ready for a trust fall.


Here’s to trusting the adventure ahead and ALLOWING all that is ready to find me, to magically appear. (That, and a smooth path without any bumps or tumbles would be nice too!).Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 280 joy is double duty

15 Oct


{Dunkin’} 

Ah, Monday! You surprised me again this week. Just when I think all is well and ready to go I ended up driving through the Dunkin’ Donuts drive-through twice. I blame joy. That’s right, JOY. 

The line was very long this morning as I waited my turn to order at the drive-through. When I finally made it up to the speaker system the attendant asked if I wanted to donate to JOY. Of course, I said yes, then ordered my chai tea and pumpkin donut. When I pulled up to the window I was so overjoyed to sign my name on a little piece of JOY paper proclaiming to the world that I had given to the Joy Foundation that I drove away. Without my tea or donut.  

I made it three feet forward when I realized I had no tea in my hands but it was too late. The very long line of cars pulled forward automatically. So I was forced to line up again at the end of the line. What a way to start a Monday morning. When I finally made it back up to the window the attendant had a good laugh and my tea waiting for me too.

Apparently, joy is so wonderful, sometimes, we have to do it twice!
 
More tomorrow… Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 274 :: joy is a bubble bath

9 Oct


{relaxation}


Sometimes you just need a good old fashioned bubble bath to relax into joy. Tonight, that was just the ticket! And my first bubble bath in our new place. A christening of sorts. 

Joy is teaching me that the small moments are just as big as the big ones. Even in the form of tiny bubbles. 

More tomorrow… Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 57 :: sunshine & joy

27 Feb
{breakthrough)

Sometimes the breakthrough comes after the break… and today, the sun broke through the clouds outside my window. If only for a moment.

It had me thinking about the joy of spring. And how I cannot wait to experience more of it.

My heart is calling for spring. And our world is certainly calling for more joy. May they both sprout forth.  

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 52 :: expanding the good

22 Feb
{true joy}

I was thinking about the good things today. And then I thought about joy. And then I thought…Maybe joy is just starting where you are and expanding the good from there.

We all have to begin somewhere.

Good.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie
