JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 283 :: trust the calm

12 Oct

{trust}  

Tomorrow we start a cleanse, a 40-day cleanse. However, after today it will probably be a 35 day cleanse. Not because we will quit early or not make it all the way through the many, many shakes and plant-based foods. No, the reason has more to do with the bath I took today.

While I was in the bathrub I heard a noise downstairs. The more I listened the more I thought Brady was wrestling a plastic bag, which I assumed he got out of the recycling bin. He has taught himself how to open the recycling bin and dig out the contents. So imagine my surprise as I walked downstairs in my bath towel looking for a plastic bag and instead found an entire bag of green power shake opened up and dumped on top of the couch. It is obviously plant-based because it was bright green. And there was Brady licking his paws.

The more I looked the more I saw little bits of green shake mix all over the floor, the blankets, the rug and the beige couch. In every place where he had licked he rubbed the green mix even deeper into the fibers of the couch.

I panicked as I debated how to clean it out. Adding more water could stain everything. Adding a cleaner could bleach everything. So I did a little of both. I am happy to report that a handheld Dyson was able to vacuum up most of it. The rest seems to have disappeared with a little water, cleaner and elbow grease. 

Brady disappeared too, right down to his kennel where he knows to go when he is in trouble. He’s one smart dog. He also, apparently, liked the power shake mix which maybe is a good sign for the next 35 days.

Maybe it’s a lesson in staying calm. If nothing else, it’s a reminder that we can trust Brady to sniff out any kind of food. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 278 :: unstoppable

7 Oct

{trust}  

I had the most amazing surprise weekend in New Orleans, and the more I reflect on it, the more I am reminded about my dear, sweet Mama Sling. Reuniting with my cousins this weekend, randomly because we were in the same place at the same time and staying in two hotels across the street from each other unbeknownst to us, was a wonderful surprise and a massive touchstone to my mother.

We shared stories about our memories of her, her sweetness and her strength. Her hugs and love, her ability to take care of others even when she was sick. She was such a beautiful blend of those two things. Sweet as pie, stronger than life itself. This is probably why she is so present with me today, and with my dear cousins too. They called her Aunt Wee, I called her Mama Sling. But really, what she was is called unstoppable.

Which brings me to this… 

If there was any message she could have shared with us girls, I think it would be this:  “Be sweet, be strong, be unstoppable.” That is what makes you unforgettable. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 276 cousins

6 Oct

{trust}  

What a wonderful surprise in New Orleans! I couldn’t have planned this better if I tried. A night of fun, food and catching up with the girls I grew up with but we just happened to be in New Orleans. It makes me wonder if life put us here for a reason… and in that I trust. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 275 :: trust & synchronicities

4 Oct

{trust}  

I don’t know if it’s the power of social media or the power of New Orleans but this little town has some amazing synchronicities. Including a surprise call today that my beloved cousins will happen to be here tomorrow, while I am still here on a work trip.

The best part is that this same thing happened last year on this same business trip too – it just happened to be Nashville. Call it ironic or voodoo but I couldn’t be more excited about this amazing coincidence one year later.

Let the good times roll! 

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 270 :: trusting change

29 Sep

{trust}  

Trust has me thinking about change tonight. As the seasons change outside my window and the leaves begin to take on brighter colors, I too am thinking about the ways we show our brilliance. Maybe it just means taking a chance.  

And there’s only one letter difference between change and chance. Maybe there’s a reason for that!  

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 268 :: trusting home

27 Sep

{trust}  

It’s Friday night and I am home sweet home, sitting on the couch watching movies and feeling the sense of rest and relief that only a Friday night can bring. I love traveling and adventure but I also love home. I love the candles lit on my fireplace throwing the light of comfort on the walls. I love the snuggling puppy at my side circled up under a fuzzy blanket.

Just after my movie finished another popped up on the screen, one called Idaho. It’s ironically the first place I called home. As I watch the beautiful scenes from the state where I grew up I find it refreshing that it feels just as familiar as the state where I now live.

We have actually lived in so many states over the years that it’s hard to know which place is really our home. We have moved six times in ten years but each place has held a thread of us. Weave them all together and we have a blanket called home.

I think that’s because home is not really a place, it’s rather a feeling The one inside of you that feels like trust. So here’s to snuggling up at home on a Friday night. The best kind of way to end a week. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.
