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?

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”
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”
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”
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”
Once upon a time I was dating this guy who said to me, “Once you realize how powerful you are, you’re going to be unstoppable.”
I took a screenshot of the text because I remember it being “so inspiring” at the time.
I ran across the photo of that text the other day and I can tell you that this time around, that comment wasn’t taken so flattering. It actually made me a little annoyed for a moment…followed by my laughter at the pure ridiculousness of the statement.

Nothing I do makes sense, well I mean it doesn’t “mesh” or fit according to the standard “what makes a woman great” memo that the world has been handed. I tend to leave people scratching their heads, unsure what I just said or did. Unable to truly understand the methods to my madness until much later after they’ve allowed it to process, then it “sort of” makes sense. But even then, I’m a walking contradiction.
