Focus

Focus

Real talk: these past two weeks have been a whirlwind.

One moment it feels like it’s been forever and the next moment it feels like it’s just been a day.

The month of May is typically a very full month for me, so I came into it expecting this but this year, it’s been on a whole new level.

Chaos used to be my normal.
Every day my life was a whirlwind and I thrived inside it. Continue reading “Focus”

Strong Woman

Strong Woman

Being a strong woman who sticks to her morals, her desires, and doesn’t tone down what makes her who she is, isn’t always easy.

In fact, it’s difficult most of the time. Because most people don’t understand you. And most people try to make you feel like you’re wrong for being the way you are.

This Tattoo…

This Tattoo…

This tattoo was one of the best investments in myself I’ve ever made. Every time  I start to doubt what I’m doing or why I’m doing it, before my inner voice can even chime in to tell that shit to go on somewhere, I see my arm and remember it all.

Everything else stops and I just think: “Shine Jamie. Just shine.”

I know what I need to do. I have the tools. I know my purpose. It’s clear. And this is just a solid reminder whenever I need it that I was put on this planet to shine.

As a good friend of mine once told me, “it’s an external reminder of an internal committment.”

And that it is. An internal commitment that runs so deep to my core I’m not even sure I could actually ever fully explain.

Heavy

Heavy

The truth is: it happens to the best of us. We all have days that are just hard. Moments where it all just weighs down at the same time & simply feels HEAVY.

When you’re passionate about what you do & are committed to living your life your way, you pour yourself into it & sometimes, no matter how much you try to avoid it… it gets heavy. Even if it’s just for an evening, it happens.

Today was one of those days. It’s been an amazing week. So many great things happening in my business, I haven’t felt super well but I’ve been pushing through & taking care of business & me very intentionally. But around 6 pm after literally crossing the 34th thing off a 72 item to-do list filled with left over tasks from the past 10 days & my 4th extremely tough workout, my mind, my energy, & my body said NOPE. That’s it. It’s time to sit down. Continue reading “Heavy”

Mentally Preparing For The Week

Mentally Preparing For The Week

Mentally preparing for the week is a must do Sunday ritual.

Meals ready.
Week planned.
Laundry done.
House cleaned.
Routines done.

But I’m laying here thinking about how it will all play out. Creating the reality of it all. Speaking it all into existence.

My Client Samantha…

My Client Samantha…

Let’s talk about my client, Sam, for a minute…

There are 100 things I could list in the category of places she’s made massive shifts and has been reaping the benefits of from watering those seeds every day…it’s been seriously amazing to watch.

BUT this right here is my favorite kind of win.

When it comes to starting your day off right, it’s a NON NEGOTIABLE as far as I’m concerned.

Didn’t Stick To The Plan?

Didn’t Stick To The Plan?

So maybe you didn’t stick to the plan. Life happened and you lost track and by the time you realized it, it seemed like so far gone that there was no way you could get back to it and actually be productive so you just have been avoiding it.

Ya know, that goal you set earlier this year. That thing you declared you were going to do this year.

That weight you were going to lose. That new regimen you were going to put in place. That new business you were going to start. That new program you were going to launch. That new part of your lifestyle you were determined to implement. That weekly quality time with your wife or husband that you were going to start making a priority. That time you were going to make sure you spent taking care of yourself. That money you were going to start saving. That debt you were going to pay off.

Whatever that “thing” was that you proclaimed that you were going to focus on, change, and handle this year… It just hasn’t happened.

Life happened instead. Continue reading “Didn’t Stick To The Plan?”
