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

13 Nov


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!

Jamie’s BLOG – DAY 140 :: curves ahead

21 May

Blog comes early today…. because I’m hitting the road for Portland.

It’s time for a fill. As in fill her up! Actually, it’s a saline fill for my breast expanders. I’m not sure what to expect but I have Tylenol in hand just in case.

Later: I am almost to Portland. Stopped to take a break and finish this blog. Ironically, while almost here I saw a bright yellow sign that said:

Curves Ahead.

I had to laugh.
Yes… indeed.
Curves ahead! 

More tomorrow.

{what’s ahead for you?}

Jamie’s BLOG – DAY 138 :: believe

19 May

A little bit of beauty today comes from a book. It was a gift (thank you Kim!).

And it’s beautiful, both inside and out, because it’s all about believing.

What do you believe in right now?

(P.S. If you love it, you can get it here: Believe: A gift to celebrate new beginnings).

More tomorrow.


Jamie’s BLOG – DAY 137 :: life is beautiful

18 May

As Sunday winds down I am compelled to share something beautiful:  plates!

But not just any plates. Inspiring. Beautiful. Quotable.

I received them as a gift, but the gift is really this, the reminder.
Life is beautiful. Everything has beauty.

It’s all just a matter of how we/you/I see it.
What do you see?

More tomorrow.

{what’s beautiful to you right now?}
