We are a society of brilliant women who’ve traded in what we know, deep in the core of us, for what we’re told is right, what looks right, for the “socially acceptable” thing, that, for some reason, has never felt right.
We think slowing down is a sign of weakness, that strength looks like single-handedly, strong-arming our issues, and that when the sh*t hits the fan, we’ve got to suck it up and muscle through.
We keep ourselves externally focused, numbed and busy worrying about what we say, what we do, how we look, what we eat, what people think and what we accomplish.
We’ve lost our real selves
and feel the disconnect within us.
Know this. Looking inward is controversial.
It asks that we slow, that we stop wasting time on sh*t we can’t control, people we can’t please and instead be kind and accept ourselves as we are, exactly in this moment. It means putting an end to our constant betterifying.
It means choosing compassion over comparison and control, soul care over self doubt, resilience over getting it right.
It asks us to face our fears and go against old stories and personal prejudices. It requires trust in ourselves, our inner wisdom and our creativity.
And most importantly, it means finding our voice and using it.
So how do we do that?

Jamie, each time I see you speak I am blown away. Not only am I benefiting from your wisdom and advice, but I’m passing it on to the people in my life and we’re all making changes in how we listen to and approach oursleves. You’ve truly given me the permission I needed to trust myself and I appreciate it so very much.
-Karla D., Alta Bates Summit Medical Center
Jamie was amazing. Her message to our Leader Training team was spot on – applicable to them not only in managing their teams, but also managing their overall lives!
-LaVonne Finnerud, Luna Summit
Jamie's insight made an immediate positive impact on my life.
During our leadership workshop with her I received two emails from patients which needed follow up. I was able to take the cues, guidance, and step by step emotional process Jamie reviewed with us and apply them directly to my conversations with them.
Both patients later shared how much my compassion and care aided them through their current struggles and helped them feel even more supported than usual.
Thank you Jamie, for helping me fine tune how to let others know how much I care about them.
