JAMIE'S BLOG – YEAR 9 easy – 29 days to go

2 Dec


{trust}  

There are 29 days left of The Promise 365!

I love it when things are easy. Today I went to the dentist and he fixed my chipped front tooth. It was easy, so, so easy. And, it feels so good to have experts to rely on when you need them.

It’s taken me a long time to learn this lesson. Relying on others is a gift, and accepting and allowing the gifts of others to impact your life is a blessing.

So, I say… focus on what’s easy. Just as the snow is falling outside my window in an effortless fashion, we must also allow and let go into what is easy. 

Be like the snow… fall into place in an easy and effortless way.
Trust me!

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 349 :: joy is a little snow

17 Dec

{let it snow}  

It snowed today, just a little bit. Only a tiny bit. It’s enough to make it feel like the holidays without all the hassle of slick roads. Not too cold, not too warm. Just right. 

How joyful! 

Joy is just a little bit of snow. 

More tomorrow… 
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 317 :: joy is the first snow

15 Nov


{outside} 

We are sitting inside looking outside at the snow. The first snow! It’s so big, fluffy and falling slowly from the sky. It’s beautiful and brings me joy. Not because it’s cold or the flagship moment of winter’s approach. But because I feel cozy and warm, knowing what will come next. Thanksgiving… Christmas… New Years. 
 

 
This is the first snow. This is the kickoff. This is joy. 

More tomorrow… 

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 48 :: snow day

18 Feb
{joy}

We woke up to snow this morning. A slight dusting across the land leaving everything white capped and wintery. Even the flowers that are poking up out the ground outside my window.

They have delicate little yellow bulbs waiting to open. I worried about them today. But the truth is, Mother Nature knows best.

And those little delicate flowers probably know exactly what to do to survive a February snow and when to do it. Much like I think we all do. We all know what to do deep down in our heart of hearts. There is always that truth.  The heart truth.   

So I will keep watching those flowers out my window. And hope the sun will come out tomorrow to warm them back up.

And… In my heart, I already know it will.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 359 :: merry christmas

25 Dec
{miracles}

Happy holidays. Merry Christmas. And good tidings.

Today, we awoke to a little Christmas miracle. A blanket of snow. It was pristine and beautiful — and a surprise! Which reminds me of the power of miracles.  

Last night at dinner we tracked Santa’s sleigh with an online App. We also discussed the weather and all wished to wake up to a white Christmas. We then watched Santa make stops in Bolivia and Costa Rice, Canada, the USA, and Mexico all on a phone held in our little hands while sitting at the dinner table (what a miracle!).

Then, this morning I awoke to Jaynane singing Christmas music from the living room and announcing, “It’s a White Christmas!”

I thought she was referring to the song. And, of course, the Christmas music wafting into our room. As I stumbled out into the living room in my pajamas she turned on the porch lights to show off the blanket of snow outside. It was a Christmas miracle – a snowclad world sparking outside.

We dreamt about it. We talked about it. And then we woke up to it. It may seem small but it was a magical way to greet the day. And it reminds me that Miracles can come in all forms.

Last I checked, Santa delivered 7,281,439,471 gifts around the world on this Christmas holiday. How kind of him. What a feat! A true miracle if you ask me.

Maybe the biggest miracle of all is remembering to believe.
In the power of loving each other.
Of being kind to those in our lives all year long.
And recognizing the magic in our everyday experiences.
Even when it’s just surprise snowflakes out the window.

That may be the kindest Christmas gift of all.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 59 :: 4-letter word friday

3 Mar

SNOW.

Today’s installment of 4-letter word Friday brings me to the white, fluffy stuff. SNOW. As in, we have had so much snow this winter! We are predicted to see more over the next three days and wake up to a fluffy snow-packed morning.



Even though it’s cold, and slippery, it’s pretty. Add a cup of hot beverage of your choice, along with a Saturday morning and it might just be perfectly cozy.

And I kind of like that.
Kindly yours.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 353 :: the shred is back 

18 Dec

Day 353: Ala, ala.

‘Twas the week before Christmas and all through the house…Not a creative was stirring… except for me doing yoga. The Shred Challenge back on!

However, it IS beginning to look a lot like Christmas here. Including a little snow. Which I was fascinated with this morning. As I walked the dogs outside I noticed the snowflakes falling on my robe. Yes… I wore my robe outside this morning, and I’m so glad I did! The dark blue fabric really made the snowflakes pop!

It’s amazing what you can see when you pay attention. And when you’re wearing the right colors.

Tomorrow there will be more Shred Challenge. You can join the course here.
Namaste, Snow. Namaste.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 218 :: do the unexpected

14 Aug

Day 218: Flow.

It was a flow sort of day. Sunshine. Summer. Fun. And while I had work to do inside, I chose to go outside. The pool. The view. I even did yoga outside. Outside! Yoga!

Sometimes you have to do the opposite of what is expected.

And, like this photo I took a week ago on top of a mountain in the middle of summer – I am reminded that flowers CAN grow next to snow.

And what you expect isn’t always what you need to grow.
Now, go, flow!

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
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

BLOG – GIFT DAY 342 :: december travel: bye bye seattle

8 Dec

I’m waving goodbye to Seattle today. 

As we left the city our shuttle driver said, “It hasn’t been this cold in Seattle for 20 years!”

I’m not sure if that is an official record, but it was cold here.
And SO sunny!

Cold enough to appreciate a warm fireplace – whether it is inside or outside!

December is here so I shouldn’t be surprised, but Ms. December feels unseasonably cold to me — and in so many parts of the country, including that crazy Philly Snow Bowl.

It’s enough to make me wish I would have read this article a week ago:

Outdoor Home Prep to Do Before Hard Winter Hits

Maybe you still have time?
If so, consider it a gift!

I am headed to Chicago and will report back from there.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore {fearless}
Jamie

{what is your gift today?}
