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.”

  • Balance.
___
It’s something that many strive for but often don’t find. Between being a Mom, Wife, Boss lady X2, and trying to eat healthy, exercise, have a clean house, and time for my friends, most of the time it’s overwhelming and I’m doing one of the aforementioned things right but certainly not them all.
___
I tend to work hard, play harder, and crash hardest... and this last three days was no exception. Sleep. Cuddles. Campfires. Repeat.
___
What’s your advice on how to have balance in your life... hit me up in the comments below.

  • Thanksgiving has always been a very special time, but not for the traditional reasons.
___
My husband often has to work on Thanksgiving (this weekend included) so I hide away at our little cabin I the woods and enjoy our own version of Thanksgiving traditions:
___
🦃 with in inlaws
🍝 With my parents
🍁 Fall walks to the river
💃 Random dance parties
🎥 Cuddles and movies 🧡 No pressure, no fancy parties
____
A used to worry that the kids were missing out on the traditional thanksgiving spread, the fancy dress, or the time with extended family. I wish we could spend more time with family but our little team of three soak in the cuddles, and time together and always come out of this weekend reconnected and recharged. #Thankful #buildyourowntraditions
  • My daughter didn’t like that I had found a photo on @instagram and wanted to duplicate it.
___
Why don’t you come up with your own idea Mom?
___
Was she right? Had I forgotten how to come up with my own nature art?
___
The answer was no. While a post in my feed prompted me to seek out some nature inspired art, the skillet of being creative wasn’t lost. Once we were in the forest we all gathered and collected leaves and then headed down to the beach to start arranging.
___
The project took on its own life, morphing from a rainbow into a tree, and the air was filled with lots of magical silence while we all took on our own part of crafting the scene.
___
I have so many wonderful memories of making nature art with my Mom as a kid and was fortunate to spend two hours today doing it with both my Mom and kids.
____
So my Instagram inspiration wasn’t wrong but it shared an important reminder... she’s always watching and soaking everything in 👀 📲 🧠.

  • 😭 I’m not crying...
___
Today the signs in our new office at @launchpadlangley went up and I stepped back and watched the girls inspect the installation. What I saw was:
___
💻 5 years of sweat and hard work
💣Celebration of taking risks
❤️A willingness to follow my passion
⛰ 2 companies
🧜‍♀️ 1 dream come true
____
If you had told me that someday I’d have an office, that I’d be travelling the world for work and adventures, and that my “problems” would be too many clients or too many destinations I’d never have believed you. As one good friend recently said, “What if you weren’t dreaming big enough?”
____
What can you do today that you will thank yourself for 5 years from now?
