Are You Existing? Or Are You Living?

Are You Existing? Or Are You Living?

“Stop existing and Start living”.

I just saw this and it stopped me dead in my tracks. Think about that for a minute…

Are you existing? Or Are you living?

EXISTING would probably go something like this: dreading waking up each morning, rushing through your morning to go to a job or into a task you’re not super crazy about, driving to that place and not even remembering the drive at all and not looking forward to all you HAVE to do today. Sometimes not wanting to get out of bed at all. Maybe not feeling super thrilled about the clothes you just threw on during that rushed morning so you don’t particularly feel super awesome. Avoiding conversations. Eating whatever is available at the time or forgetting to eat at all. Looking forward to ‘quitting time’. Not feeling excited about anything you’re doing all day. You’re just kind of “going through the motions”… or something along those lines. Continue reading “Are You Existing? Or Are You Living?”

Unconditional Love

Unconditional Love

I got really used to making no sense to anyone a really long time ago but I would never had fathomed having to stand up and fight… well, SHINE, as strong and as bright as I can to prove that I’m not going anywhere, that I’m confident in the deeply clear messages I’ve received, that it is possible to not only see above the fog but to make unwavering shifts in order to be better equipped for navigating what’s ahead. Shining light on the fact that unconditional, non judgmental love actually does exist.

Because unfortunately, in this world it is so uncommon for someone to actually be committed, to stick to their word, to be to willing to fight/shine because quitting is simply not an option. That when I speak my truth and my position as confidently as I always have when I am as sure of something as I am right now, I get blank stares and reactions of disbelief… from most at least.

It’s Been Four Years

It’s Been Four Years

It’s been four years since I followed that voice inside of me and left the body shop.

I walked away from something I loved but something that had taken over my life in a way that was so unhealthy and filled it with toxicity that I couldn’t see straight.

I will never forget the moment when he said “I can’t come back from this, can I?” And without even thinking I simply said no and walked out of the office.

It was terrifying. I had no idea what I was going to do or where I was going to go but I knew that the voice inside of me clearly, so so so clearly, told me it was time to go.

I didn’t know what was in store for me but I had one hell of a resume, a ton of skills, and this little side business I had started about a year previous called Posh Promotions… that and a really big dream to create a life I never really knew was possible but I knew I had to try.

Patience Has Nothing To Do With It

Patience Has Nothing To Do With It

I went to catch up with a friend this morning, we met outside of the restaurant and I yelled my normal, “WHAT’S UPPPP!” greeting across the lot. As we were walking in, he replied “Well apparently EVERYTHING. You have a lot to tell me, huh?”

“Yep. All of the things are happening.”

“Like all of the things… at the same time.”

“Ya know, all of the things all in about 5 minutes. Yes. Quick and fast, just how I like it. You know I’m impatient.” I said jokingly.

And as we were seated to enjoy our usual, but massively overdue breakfast date, I went on to tell him about the huge realizations I’ve uncovered recently, the changes in my business structure, the fact that I met a man, fell in love basically instantly, and within days from now will be cohabitating with said man… in a different state.

How Finding Peace Made Her More Money

How Finding Peace Made Her More Money

“HOW MUCH MORE MONEY I COULD HAVE MADE IN MY ALREADY SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS IF I HAD KNOWN HOW MUCH MORE MONEY CREATING PEACE IN YOUR LIFE GENERATES?”

—-

I first hired Jamie almost a year ago. I talk often about the shifts she’s helped me make in my business, because those are the most tangible and easiest to explain.

I had this business idea when I first spoke with her that I had no idea how to execute… we hit my “long term, where I see this business at its peak” goal so long ago, that my original “long term” goal feels like a joke at this point. I’m hitting in a month close to what I used to hit in a year.

And believe it or not, business is the LEAST of what Jamie has helped me improve in my life. I don’t say that for drama – it’s the actual truth.

I had been watching Jamie’s content for over a year before I hired her. She had me intrigued with all this mindset stuff she talked about. I believed in all of it, but I believed it for other people. I didn’t believe I’d ever be capable of operating my life in that way, but it was cool to read her stories. Continue reading “How Finding Peace Made Her More Money”

Overcoming Fear

Overcoming Fear

I was reading an article this morning about fear… and honestly, fear is something I spend a lot of time paying attention to when it pops up because it has so much to tell us if we’re willing to listen.

So, this morning I decided to extend my morning practice into some meditation coloring. As I was filling in the swirls of the mandala, I let my thoughts flow freely. And after about 10 minutes of that I started to ask myself “What are you so scared of?”

Because I’ve been feeling the presence of fear lately, but it hasn’t been clear as to why or what it was that I’m scared of in my current situation. Continue reading “Overcoming Fear”

You Don’t Know What It’s Like

You Don’t Know What It’s Like

“But Jamie, you don’t know what it’s like!”

Really? I don’t know what it’s like to be broke and not have enough money to pay rent, let alone figure out if I had enough gas to get me to work until payday? Yes. I know that reality all too well. So, quit being so damn assuming and remember that we all start somewhere and you my friend, are not the only one who knows what it means to struggle. Continue reading “You Don’t Know What It’s Like”
