JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 284 :: trust

13 Oct

{trust}  

I’m listening to an amazing program from MindValley. It’s about reprogramming your mind for total success and in the latest presentation, the message was to make what is unknown known and to make what is familiar unfamiliar. 

The timing couldn’t be more perfect. Today we started our cleanse (even though Brady started his yesterday). This means my familiar sweets, chocolates, and sugars will now have to become unfamiliar for at least a few weeks. Until then, I will make vegetables and green shakes my familiars. 

Here’s to the next 40 days!
Trust what you know, and know what you want. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 279 :: lovemore fearless trust

8 Oct


{trust}  

I was thinking about trust today… and how much it relates to being fearless. To trust wholly and completely leaves no room for fear. It brought me back to my year of Lovemore Fearless, where we swam with sharks and rafted the Grand Canyon. Trust is closely related to being fearless, and there are no compromises in a fearless life.  

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 272 :: happy

1 Oct

{trust}  

I laughed a lot today. At a doctor’s appointment no less. I had my annual exam and pap smear, which I find to be the funniest word ever. Smear. Like it’s some sort of topping for toast. It isn’t, by the way, in case you have never had one.  

Right before the pap smear ensued I was asked to dress down and don the fabled paper gown. So I did, except for my bra, because you know, the girls are fake so it doesn’t matter anymore. I guess I forgot to tell my new doctor this because when she started my annual exam she opened up my gown and frowned at me. “Why are you wearing your bra?” 

I looked at her and laughed. “Oh, I forgot to tell you, these are fake.” 

She laughed. I laughed even harder.
Then she said, “You’re right, don’t need to examine those.” 

As we laughed even harder I realized that I forgot to tell her something else. Two night ago I did a body scrub made with Turmeric which turned the bathtub and my toes and fingers temporarily yellow. As I explained this to my new doctor I warned her that I may have other skin parts that were yellow from it too, so not to be alarmed. 

She laughed again.  
I laughed all the way through the procedure. 
She called me “Tumeric Toes.”
And then we laughed some more. 

I have never had more fun at a doctor’s office. Or laughed harder. Which is a welcome change in my life and truly underscores the theory that laughter is the best medicine. 

And, joy is a simple thing. A very powerful, simple thing. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 249 :: stay with it

6 Sep

{trust}  

I am sore. Today was my third day in a row at OrangeTheory, in the morning class no less. I am pretty proud of myself for making it happen and being consistent and going to the morning class.

It’s not just a move of being consistent, although that is important to me.  It’s really the matter of putting myself first and treating my own body as the greatest priority of the day.

As I left class today I bumped into a fellow worker-outer. She is always very sprite and wears a smile. She looks like she could be my mother’s age but she works out harder than I do. As I left class today she gave me a smile and said, “You’re doing great!”

I responded back, “YOU’RE doing great!” She nodded and said, “It never ends you have to keep it up.”

And it’s true. She is beautiful and strong and such an inspiration to me.  

It also reminded me that strength and beauty but mostly consistency comes from within. Stay with it. Trust your body.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 247 :: look toward the sun

4 Sep

{trust}  

I am excited to report that the orchids in my office bloomed this week. It’s the first time an orchid has bloomed in my care. It’s actually the first time an orchid has not completely died in my care, so I am beyond elated.

The plant sits on my bookcase and leans toward the sun. In fact, I didn’t even know it was blooming because the buds were pointing toward the sun hidden on the backside toward the wall. 

It reminds me that to grow you just need some water, good soil, and sun. So look toward the sun!

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 241 :: focus on the good

29 Aug

{trust}  

They say where your mind goes your energy flows, so tonight I’m thinking about the goodness of summer. Especially as summer is winding down and the first signs of fall are popping up all around me.

There’s still time for good things like ice cream… ummmm, pink bubblegum ice cream. 

Focus on the good. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 240 :: all shall be well

28 Aug

{trust}  

The world lost a bright light today and my dear teacher. Tonight I sit here reflecting on the words that she gave me for precisely moments like these. All shall be well. 

This is not the first time I have lost someone I loved but it is always hard to say goodbye. Even though I know that my teacher and her lessons will remain with me for a lifetime, and I am part of a lineage of students that will carry on her wisdom, it is still not easy. 

If there is one thing I know to do now, it is to look for the magic. There is magic in everyday life and there is magic in our dear relationships that continue way past the final breaths we breathe.

As my teacher would sing to me and I will sing into the future: 

All Shall Be Well, 
All Shall Be Well, 
And All Matter of Things, 
Shall Be Well, 
Shall Be Well, 
Shall Be Well. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 238 :: giving trust

26 Aug

{trust}  

Ah, Monday. Here you are again. In this year of TRUST you have me thinking about giving. What is giving? What is giving too much? What is giving too little? What is giving enough?

I have learned the fine art of giving every day, every night really, for almost nine years now because I show up right here on this little blog. I give of my thoughts and words and sometimes wisdom and sometimes laughter, and sometimes fear. I give of myself. I oftentimes wonder if it is a funny little side gig or a worthy cause? Is it giving too much, or too little? Just right?

So you have led me here: showing up.

Showing up is truly giving, and trusting that the gift will be received. I have heard from so many of you who read this blog or see the little pictures on social media that the message (or gift) was received. It warms my heart.

Blogging is not for the faint of heart or minds. I will continue to show up here because it is a gift, to you and honestly to me. Each night I trust that I will show up, so I do. So there it is – trust.

The question is where are you showing up? Know whatever the answer is, it is a gift. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 237 :: prepare for the best

25 Aug

{trust}  

It’s Sunday night and time to prepare for the week ahead. 

Prepare: to put in proper condition or readiness.

I’ve been thinking much about preparing lately, and how when you prepare you keep preparing and sometimes (I) forget to enjoy what I have prepared. So, here’s to preparing for the week again, and enjoying what comes! That is a lesson in trust.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.
Jamie
