JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 118 :: trust in starting over

29 Apr


Ah, Monday! The best thing I have to say to you is, thank you. Thank you for the chance to start over, to begin again, to look at the world (and all my work, responsibilities, commitments, plans, goals, dreams, promises) with new eyes.

You do this to me every week. Every seven days. You pop up and remind me that I am starting over, with a jolt, or wake up call, to say the weekend is fleeting. That IKEA project is still looming, those papers are still sitting and those meetings are still waiting for me.

But seriously, thank you. I mean it from the bottom of my heart, Monday. Every week needs a restart button. A space and moment in time to get a fresh perspective before returning to the desk/chair/seat/car/path where I have been, and Monday, you always deliver.

  Monday, you seriously get a bad reputation. But I have to say, you are always at the beginning, the starting point of something great. A reoccurring new beginning and a chance to start over even if it is for a brief moment organizing my desk and my brain and my week. 

So… thank you. I mean it. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 198 :: love-love

23 Jul

I love the beginning of tennis match. What other sport starts off with double love.

Love. Love.

Even if I run out of steam, biff, bonk and totally flop one game…. the next one starts off with love. Love. Love.

And I love that.

I love the reminder that anyone can start over. Every game is a new game. Every day is a new day. A new chance, A new opportunity.

Even if I lose. (like I did tonight) Tomorrow I can start again.
Love. Love.

More tomorrow.

  {what do you love, love?}

BLOG – GIFT DAY 237 starting over :: decor

27 Aug

As you know, I’m starting over. 
But it feels like more of a celebration than a struggle. The surgery is over! The move to the west coast is complete!  
So, now, we need to decorate.

Jaynane to the rescue. 

Not only has Jaynane arrived by my side to help with post-surgery recovery, she has already delivered new furniture, sewed new curtains, and painted amazing amounts of furniture.

All I’ve been allowed to do by Justin and his mother has been kick up my feet and sip some wine. I’m not allowed to lift heavy objects or drive a vehicle or cook or do laundry. Doctor’s orders.

It won’t last for long, but it’s not a bad gig if you ask me.

As the decor transformation takes place over here I will post photos later this week.

Until then, I share a total makeover series with you from House Beautiful.
It’s totally worth checking out this day in the life of a surprise makeover.

My transformation has felt a little bit like this one below, featured on House Beautiful.

Swift. Quick.
And all done in one week!


More tomorrow.
Lovemore {fearless}
