Accountability

Accountability

Accountability. It really is the key everyone is looking for.

Its just not the fake, easy, extra shiny and glittery kind you can buy off the shelf on your way out the store like blame is.

If everyone would stop trying to point fingers, blame others, or try to find some “reason” as to why something is a certain way and realize that accepting the facts of your own involvement, your own choices every moment of every day, then all that crap that you’re piling up around you as the “culprits” would diminish and you could get back to the real situation, YOU.

Greatest Gift

Greatest Gift

A while back I got a suggestion to record something talking about my biggest “ah-ha moment” and as I thought about it, a bunch of things popped into my head. As I was revisiting it one stuck out more than the others. 

Honestly, this has been a moment that birthed a thousand more and is something that I will forever be grateful for. 

Have you ever had one of those moments where you hear something and then something inside of you just clicks? That’s what this moment was.

I was listening to Gary Vee speak at his book launch for the #askgaryvee book and something he said sparked a curiosity in me that’s been very much alive ever since. Continue reading “Greatest Gift”

Frazzled

Frazzled

We all get frazzled sometimes, overwhelmed.

Sometimes all of those plates you have spinning in the air can feel pretty damn daunting. And sometimes the responsibility of all of that and your purpose can feel heavy.

THAT’S OKAY.

You’re human.
Humans have feelings.
Humans get overwhelmed from time to time.

Trust me, coming from a girl who used to operate like a robot in a lot of ways and just avoid the feelings… it’s not worth it. It will always always always catch up with you at some point in one way or another. Continue reading “Frazzled”

What To Do When People Are Shitty

What To Do When People Are Shitty

What to do when people are shitty….

 

I was in the shower pondering on the way different people approach different situations and I thought about that question; What do you do when people are shitty to you?

 

Well, I feel like we all may have a go-to reaction that we’ve developed over the years when faced with people being sucky towards us but is that really the best option?

My Heart Might Have Just Exploded

My Heart Might Have Just Exploded

Do you ever have those moments where someone says something to you, or about you and it TOTALLY catches you off guard? Like in a good way, though. In a way that makes you sit back in your chair and go “WOW”… and your heart feels like it might burst?

Yeah, that just happened to me. And I wanted to share it with you;

“I reached out to Jamie 3 years ago with the idea of something I’d never heard of before, starting a coaching business for hairstylists.

I did NOT expect her response.

When I told her my idea, she said, “I don’t think you know how quickly you can make money doing that.”

Fast forward 3 years later, and we’ve built things I never even dreamed of when I made that first phone call.

What I’ve learned, is that the magic is in the mundane. It’s the consistency of the mindset work.  It’s the journaling, creating space for quiet and rest, and visualizing. The things we are “too busy” to do are actually the things that create everything we want.

Do it for a little while and it works… and that’s when most people stop.
Do it for a long time, and it creates the foundation for a life you wouldn’t even dream possible.
Do the things Jamie teaches, consistently and unwaveringly, and watch your whole life change.”

Reading those words that a private client of mine sent brings tears to my eyes and an immense amount of pride to my heart. It’s always great to see your work… work. And to see it change someone’s life is just icing on the cake.

Why We Practice

Why We Practice

I was finishing a book the other day and it promoted this insane overwhelming feeling of gratitude. One small statement caused me to go into deep thought about intentional living and why it works.

 

The statement: “This is why we practice”

 

Mindfulness mainly but all areas fit under the umbrella really.

Validation

Validation

Are you calculating your own worth based off outside validation?

Before you write this off as “Nope, not me” and keep scrolling… Hear me out because this one can be pretty tricky.

When I say outside validation, I’m referring to a number of things. From approval, acceptance, and praise for your personal work, thoughts, or actions- to feeling whole based off the number of people who are seeking your energy, your advice, or your attention. Continue reading “Validation”

Enjoying TV

Enjoying TV

Contrary to what most people talking about lifestyle, building a business and being growth minded say… I absolutely enjoy TV.

Disappearing into a show or movie serves my soul in such a beautiful way. Continue reading “Enjoying TV”

Finding the Joy

Finding the Joy

A couple of years ago someone asked me what brought me joy and honestly, I froze. I didn’t know what to say. I wasn’t sure how to answer that question at all.

I mean, my business brought me joy, my clients made me happy, my successes we’re great but actual JOY? I was fresh out of ideas.

So, I started down this path of seeking job in all of the little moments that occur. Mix that with gratitude and it’s proving to be a very rewarding experience to create.

So I ask you, how much are you leaving on the table without joy?

The truth is, probably a LOT.  Continue reading “Finding the Joy”

Unplug

Unplug

Unplug… I used to say “disconnect” but let’s be real… Disconnect? How NOT nourishing does that sound?!

The whole point of the act of turning everything off is to refill my cup, to rejuvenate, to reconnect with myself, my voice, my body, my soul. And how can you do that if you’re labeling the experience something so cold in the first place?

No wonder it was never working… And I had been trying the “disconnect” method for MONTHS with no change… So, disconnect went out the door and UNPLUG came in. Continue reading “Unplug”
