Note from Jamie

I like to share things that light me up, fill me with joy, and make my life easier. Nothing is sponsored. These are just things that are helping me along my journey.

I attended an awards ceremony yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed celebrating the women being honored.

I also felt that little pang of "What about me?" And, "When is it my turn?"

I'll be honest, as excerpts from the winning nominations were read, I couldn't help but compare accomplishments. I definitely had some inner dialogue happening.

Have you ever felt this mix of sweet and sour emotions? You're genuinely happy for the people being celebrated, but also bummed that you're not one of them? Same.

I did a quick Google search on famous people who have never won their industry awards:

  • Glenn Close (nominated 8 times - Oscar)
  • Amy Adams (nominated 6 times - Oscar)
  • Bradley Cooper (nominated 6 times - Oscar)
  • Michelle Williams (nominated 5 times - Oscar)
  • Tom Cruise (nominated 4 times - Oscar)
  • Katy Perry (nominated 13 times - Grammy)
  • Jennifer Lopez (nominated 2 times - Grammy)
  • Snoop Dogg, Jimi Hendrix, Diana Ross, Bob Marley, Angela Bassett, Sigourney Weaver, and so many more
We're surely not alone in our disappointment. So, here's what we're going to do.
  1. Feel Our Feels: It’s okay to feel disappointed. It's important to acknowledge and feel our feelings before moving through them and letting them go.
  2. Offer Ourselves Kindness: Given the givens, what would feel like kindness? When I don't win an award, I re-read the nomination letters that were submitted on my behalf and revel in the kind things people have written about me. I also think about the ways that I "win" everyday and I quickly remember how blessed I really am.

Don't have a nomination letter to read? Here you go...

You're smart, talented, driven, dedicated, generous, caring, supportive, encouraging, and loving. You're a winner and deserve to be celebrated. Every damn day.



Nourish Pick of the Week

I love our Natural Deodorant so much. It's 100% clean + natural. And, it 100% works.

It's truly the product that put us on the map and first got people talking about Nourish.

It goes on smoothly and keeps you smelling fresh all day (and night).

I encourage you to give it a try. If you don't love it as much as I do, I'll refund your money.
