JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 359 :: letters to santa

24 Dec

Day 359: And Whitney.
It’s Christmas Eve. And I’m loving the letters to Santa.

And the records we are playing from days gone by — Huey Louis and The New, Lionel Richie, Footloose, Whitney Houston.

We just woke up all the kids. Because we adults are being too loud. There is a little wine involved – but it at least has 13 essential minerals – so Merry Christmas everyone!

No Yoga Shred tonight! But there will be a downward dog or two.
You can still join the Shred course here.
Namaste, Christmas Eve. Namaste.

More tomorrow.

{Merry Christmas}

Day 104: f*ing friday :: further

13 Apr

F*ing Fridays are back!
And, they will continue to occur on Friday. I mentioned some of my favorite F words back on Day 5 in Year 1, including: Fearless, Fabulous, Fine, Fun, Faith, Freedom, Forgiveness, to name a Few.

Last week I dove into the words Fast Friends

Today’s F*ing Friday is dedicated to the word:

As in, going to a more advanced point. 

A greater distance.
Maybe even beyond what we think we are capable of.

It’s Friday night and I am watching my veg-out television programming — namely Shark Tank — and now a CBS special with Lionel Richie.

Except this isn’t the Lionel Richie I remember.
This one is singing country music.

Which makes me think, what happened? And where did the 1980’s pop crooner hair go?

I suppose that is a common reaction when someone changes their status.

Whether it is their style of music or their status on Facebook, going from “married” to “single”  to “in a relationship” that sends shock waves throughout the cyber-web-o-sphere.

For that matter, changing anything about yourself usually sends all those around into confusion. Like the style of clothes we wear, a haircut, or even the place where we live.

I don’t know why, but somewhere deep inside we expect, or just want, things to stay the same.

Say you
Say me
Say it for always
That’s the way it should be

Maybe that’s why I want to remember Lionel Richie in his hey day.
But, that’s not fair to him and his legacy …which is clearly not finished.

And, in watching others push forward, take their next step, or transform into what they are supposed to be or meant to become, it makes me take a moment and realize just how far we’ve all come (bad 80’s hair included).

Or desire to go.

Congrats Mr. Richie, for keeping it fresh and real.

I guess you’re on your way.
Mighty glad you stayed.
