Embracing your inner fireball

With all the pressure of today’s society, people often find themselves a slave to everything they have to do with very little time to do what they want to do. In this talk Jami shares concepts about how to flip the priority triangle on its head and start living a life that inspires you. It’s not going to be an easy conversion, but most things that are worthwhile, don’t come easy.

What Others Are Saying

“Jami was one of the first bloggers that we had chosen to partner with for our “Coastal Christmas” festivities – she set the bar so high for everyone who came after her! Her email communication leading up to the visit was thorough, and we easily agreed on the details of what was expected after she and the family spent the weekend with us. Jami was prompt on the delivery of the posts, and did a great job at documenting the experience in real-time on her social media accounts. She has continued to be an essential ambassador for our destination and we are thrilled with the work she has done.”

  • My kids can’t truly comprehend why today is such an important day. They’ve lived a life free from experiencing war, and no real context to relate the images they see presented to them.
___
This is exactly what Grandpa fought for. For my mom, for me, for them. Forever grateful. ❤️
  • #LestWeForget
___
My grandfather moved from Pontypridd to Canada when he was five. Her served in WW2 as an airforce mechanic, and my grandmother as a nurse.
___
Being back in the small town where he was from, honouring Remembrance Day is almost overwhelming. And I think that’s good, because we will never forget.
  • By far my most emotional adventure was to Big Pit Mines in South Wales.
____
As we walked the hallways towards the mine we searched the walls at what looked like familiar faces, perhaps even finding a photo of my great grandfather.
___
He left the mine almost 100 years ago with his 5 year old son and headed to Canada. Boys as young as 5 would start their mining career and it wasn’t a life he wanted for his son (my grandfather).
____
Emotionally exhausting after seeing the conditions that these men worked in, and trying to comprehend the lifestyle and why they had to leave was overwhelming. Especially once we were down in the actual mine.
___
More to come on this adventure...
  • Cue the cute little old lady walking by the pub...
___
Does it get anymore Instagram perfect than this? But the story, now that's where the magic comes in! I was standing in the centre of a town called Pontypridd, the same town where 98 years ago my grandfather was born.
___
I stood on the corner and took photos of three generations who had come back to see where their ancestors were from. A town that as a five-year-old he left (and never returned to) after his father didn't want him to have to work in the mine. (Children started at the mine as young as 5 years old.) A town that my Mom would long to come back and visit, and that I'd have the privilege of accompanying her on this trip.
___
Little old lady, Instagram perfect pub, and a family behind the camera sharing once in a lifetime experiences.
