Acne

Acne

Real talk, my acne has been out of control and because of that I’ve been hiding.

I know to a lot of you that might sound silly but it’s true.

It has messed with my confidence. 
It has made me want to stay in the shadows.
It’s embarrassing.
It physically hurts.
And it’s frustrating as hell.

It’s getting better, but I can’t help but find myself reflecting on where my mindset has been lately.

The truth is, as much as I would like to blame me questioning myself on my skin… that would be a lie.

There’s more to it than that. Continue reading “Acne”

Labyrinth

Labyrinth

Today I walked a Labyrinth.

Before today I didn’t even know what that meant. Or what it was.

But I can tell you that I was divinely guided to find this space on this day.

Here’s why; I’ve been having quite the rollercoaster ride lately. Lots of realizations, changes, shifts, and all the feelings. But I guess that the deeper you go, the more you dig, the more “woke” you get, sometimes that’s just a normal part of your day to day.

So, this morning I just felt uneasy, for no real reason why. I did my normal routine, got grounded, pulled cards, made the bed, sat with Bonnie, journaled with my coffee, read my book, listened to my drums, but still couldn’t kick it.

Somewhere around 11am I stopped for a minute and realized that I could barely even remember any of the things I had done that day, without really stopping to think hard about it.

It was like I was in a trance.

Growing Up

Growing Up

You grow up seeing what is possible by observing your surroundings. You see what’s “okay” or “normal” to have and that’s what you strive to achieve. Maybe it’s a little bit of your own variation but typically, it is super similar to what you’ve seen created around you.

And there is nothing wrong with that, nothing at all.

But what if you’re that little girl who not only daydreamed about an extraordinary life but also somehow knew that it was actually possible?

Surrender

Surrender

Today was full. It was a lot. My brain feels a little mushy right now, to be honest, but I also feel extremely grateful.

I decided to hibernate this week. I decreased my social media use by 90%. I have turned my phone off most of the day each day. I pushed back my client calls and prerecorded my group trainings instead of hosting them live. Continue reading “Surrender”

Bursting with Light

Bursting with Light

Things are not perfect right now.
I’ve actually been having a little extra stress lately but let me tell you… I keep finding myself BURSTING at the seams with light.

There is so much fucking light and love and joy and happiness and faith and excitement and just amazing running through my body right now I’m not even sure what to do.

I’m not complaining. I’m bursting at the seams with LOVE and wanted to share. Continue reading “Bursting with Light”

Relationship With Your Phone

Relationship With Your Phone

The relationship you have with your phone when you’re single is very different than it is when you’re not. Or at least it should be…

Phone and social media usage is a struggle that I think is very different when you’re single and live alone. Think about it, there are days where it’s your only form of human interaction outside of casual conversation with someone at a store, restaurant, or coffee shop. Because when you get home. It’s just you.

I have conversations with my clients about limiting their phone and social media usage all the time because I know for a fact that it hinders their personal productivity AND clouds their mindset…but I also know it’s hurting their relationships. I practice these same tools in my life as well but what I’ve been noticing lately, is it’s a little different than I had realized before. Continue reading “Relationship With Your Phone”

Get Clear

Get Clear

This picture was taken almost 4 years ago, which seems insane when I really think about it.

But I remember when I first posted it. I was so proud. This shoot was so very well planned and every shot was thought out. Believe it or not, a lot of these poses aren’t easy to capture. It’s hard to stay still in a position that’s not natural, while flexing, and sitting on a hard surface, and trying to make a good face at the same time.

What I’m getting at, is a lot of effort goes into shots like this. And when I first posted this photo that I thought was so classy and classic, I got such mixed feedback. I had family members call my parents and ask “what’s Jamie doing?!” And be very taken aback by it. Continue reading “Get Clear”
