JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 268 :: trusting home

27 Sep

{trust}  

It’s Friday night and I am home sweet home, sitting on the couch watching movies and feeling the sense of rest and relief that only a Friday night can bring. I love traveling and adventure but I also love home. I love the candles lit on my fireplace throwing the light of comfort on the walls. I love the snuggling puppy at my side circled up under a fuzzy blanket.

Just after my movie finished another popped up on the screen, one called Idaho. It’s ironically the first place I called home. As I watch the beautiful scenes from the state where I grew up I find it refreshing that it feels just as familiar as the state where I now live.

We have actually lived in so many states over the years that it’s hard to know which place is really our home. We have moved six times in ten years but each place has held a thread of us. Weave them all together and we have a blanket called home.

I think that’s because home is not really a place, it’s rather a feeling The one inside of you that feels like trust. So here’s to snuggling up at home on a Friday night. The best kind of way to end a week. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

There’s nothing like being home, and being home for the holidays.

Tomorrow I dive back into the Yoga Shred Challenge. You can join the course here.
Namaste, Sleepy eyes. Namaste.

More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 246 :: the heart of the matter

9 Sep

Day 246: Home.

And just like that….I am home.

Ironically, I spotted another heart today: this one is pretty obvious!

I have to say, I respect and admire the branding and “heart” put into everything about the Southwest Airlines experience. Todays’ flight was smooth, the passengers were friendly (and all seemed happy even the little babies being walked up and down the ailse).

But, this I know for sure: the heart of every brand is its people. So thank you SWA for getting me home. Safely and smoothly. With a FREE checked bag!

That’s enough to make me want to go to bed and rest this weary little traveling head. But first… I must do yoga.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

Today’s bliss…arriving home.

I am home after a day of travels. My heart is full for I am home. But my heart is heavy for those who call Paris home.

May bliss find everyone home. Safe.
And sound. 

More tomorrow. 
Lovemore,

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 348 :: hope is a muscle, and a connection

19 Dec

Peak performance moment of the day:  Fa la la la la la la hot spot!

The great travel has begun, the journey home to that little spot in Idaho where I grew up. We made it to Portland tonight and I find myself searching for a connection. An internet connection.

That’s the funny thing about this blog. It has made me more connected to finding connections than ever before. Over four years, through hurricanes, vacations, Nor’easters, 30 foot waves taking off the front porch of our house, getting locked out of our vacation villa in Mexico, traveling to Paris, rafting down the Grand Canyon, surgery, after surgery, after another surgery …. I have been forced to find an internet connection to post this blog.

Somedays I have cheated and posted a short post. Somedays I have prescheduled the posts, because let’s face it, there’s no internet connection in the Grand Canyon or the surgery room. And other days, no matter where I find myself,  I have counted on my trusty iPhone for a hot spot connection.

Tonight I find myself sitting in a parked car, with laptop on my lap, heater on, hooked up to my iPhone. It’s the only connection around without trying to find a Starbucks.

I have become so trusting of having a connection that tonight when I couldn’t get my iPhone to work I almost panicked. But hope is a muscle. It’s one I have conditioned and strengthened into peak performance to perform over and over again, night after night, word after word on this blog.

Because we can always find a connection.
Even if it means hunkering down in a car with iPhone pointed in the right direction just slightly to the left sitting on the dashboard.

You can always find a connection.

Tomorrow I head to Idaho, hoping to find another kind of connection, back to my family, back to my hometown, back to my roots.

iPhone in hand. 
Fa la la la la la la la hot spot!

More tomorrow. 
Lovemore,
Jamie

BLOG – GIFT DAY 360 :: #home

26 Dec

We just made it home!

Our drive was long but so worth it.
Of course we spotted many beautiful views on our drive from Washington to Oregon, including this:


But I think Brady’s face says it all.
We are part happy and part sad. It always feels good to arrive home and yet it always stings to leave family behind.

Another holiday gone by.
Another year almost over.

But so many good memories.
And so many good stories.
All tucked away for another time and another holiday.

For the time called next time.
Until we meet again.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore {fearless}
Jamie

BLOG – GIFT DAY 344 :: december travel: #snow #home #gifts

10 Dec

It’s beginning to look a lot like… 

Snow.
The forecast calls for more #SNOW in Chicago tonight. But I’m not worried. I’m feeling pretty good actually — despite my cold. But that’s another issue.

Tonight, Chicago, will turn every snowier (is that a word?) and I turn even more excited. Because today I shared my gifts.

But first…. would you believe what I ran into tonight?
A sign from Oregon.
The night before I head home:

It still feels weird to tell people that I live in Oregon — because it still feels like a foreign land. But tonight there was a little piece of my heart that jumped for joy at a sign marked with the State of Oregon on it.  Even though it was for a brewery and I detest beer.

I can only compare it to that unexplainable wave of pride that hits you in your belly when someone brings up your team, your state, your school, your what-have-you.

And, it was officially the first time I felt it.
I hear there’s snow back at “home” and I’m headed there tomorrow to check it out.

But first, I want to say thank you to Chicago. You never disappoint. And today you allowed me to show up and shine doing the thing I love to do — lead a brainstorm session.

It’s taken me a long time to realize that brainstorms are one of my special gifts — a superpower if you will.

So, today, I proclaim it my gift of the day.

Because we have to claim our gifts.
We have to recognize them so that the rest of the world follows suit. 

Ideas. Paper. Action.
Doesn’t matter where I am — I love it.
And I love to share it.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore {fearless}
Jamie

{what do you love to share?}

BLOG – GIFT DAY 326 :: a month of inspiration :: the power of puppies and water

22 Nov

Today, in my month-long nod to inspiration, I share some water and a bath.
Because it’s very powerful. 

Today, Justin spent most of his day fielding calls and making appointments for Miss Sadie, the visiting puppy that we are fostering for a while.

We think we have found the perfect “forever” family for her to meet tomorrow! Keep your fingers crossed and I will keep you updated.

In order to prepare for the big day…
Miss Sadie took a bath. 

If this were a movie, the mere sight of water would signal “change” and something new on the horizon. Usually it’s rain or an unexpected storm that interrupts the scene. For Sadie, it was a bath and a really fun shower nozzle that squirts water and was, by her standards, super! exciting! fun!

We hope the “water rule” of change and new life that it brings holds true and ushers Miss Sadie into her forever home. She sure smells good and looks the part of precious puppy.

As I uploaded photos tonight, I realized the very last one of her in the bathroom is blurry. To which Justin remarked:

“That’s what she will be, just a blur in our lives.” 

I had to nod my head and agree with a lot of hope in my heart.
And a smile on my face too.

Sadie has already taught me some pretty amazing lessons over these last 48 hours. We all need to feel safe, have a home, good food, fun toys, loving hugs, pats on the back, good boundaries, fair rules and friends to play with.  Oh yeah …and a great bathtub.

All that, just might be the definition of ABUNDANCE.

I will report back tomorrow!

More tomorrow.
Lovemore {fearless!}
Jamie
