The world is always moving, have fun with it! Flow!

Let me know if this has ever happened to you… The other day, as I pulled into a parking spot, I put my jeep in park and reached over to the other seat where I had my belongings, to grab something. As I fiddled around and sat back into my seat, my eyes still focused on what I was doing, my peripheral vision recognized motion on the outside of the vehicle and I panicked for a moment, jamming my foot on the break. I panicked that I was wrong that I put the jeep into park and that I was going to hit something. Quickly, with my foot on the break, I looked out the window to focus on something that was concretely still, reassuring my brain that I was not in motion. I confirmed that I did have my jeep in park and it was the vehicle next to me that was in motion. I was still.

This event reminded me of how important it is to be able to trust what is still in your life. Facts are that life events will go up and down. Relationships or jobs or things you think you should have trust in will feel pretty shaky, sometimes ongoing. Ensure your spirit is growing so you can hold on to that stillness. Learn to listen to your spirt. Ask me, ask someone. And find things to laugh about! Always! #LifeShouldBeFun!!

PURSE NIGHT! SEPT 10; STARS 2015 Rescue on the Island

How is your summer??? In case you haven’t heard, I have been very busy on a few project, I would like to tell you about one in particular, I am participating in an annual STARS fundraiser. I talk all about it here: STARS Video

Shock Trauma Air Rescue Society responds to critical injuries and medical emergencies for most of rural Manitoba and they operate as a hospital fundraiser that needs our support so that they can continue to do the work that they do but improve on technology and training to continue to save lives!

I’m hosting a purse night on September 10th, 2015 at 90 Sinclair from 6:30 to 9PM. The purses that are being sold are being donated to the cause by dropping them off at a specified location. Purses should be new or slightly used, not falling apart. They do not have to be brand name.

In addition to purse donations and purchases, donations of any denomination can be made to my campaign here:  https://foundation.stars.ca/jessica

You can find more information on how you can get involved here on my webpage: jessicadumas.com/STARS

Thank you so much in advance to you for your support and to STARS for all the work that they do here in Manitoba!!

Again, I can be reached at 204-770-7569 and through my website!

Thanks so much! Enjoy the last days of summer!!!

Going the extra mile 

Going the extra mile means doing more than what you are expected to contribute, it is more than what is required to fulfill the job. 

Kindness is the language that the deaf can hear and the blind can see. -Mark Twain

If someone does not smile at you, be generous and offer your own smile. Nobody needs a smile more than one who cannot smile to others. -Dalai Lama

Generosity is the habit of giving freely without expecting anything in return. -Anonymous

In the Bigger Picture

untitled (2)

What is the bigger picture? Sometimes the challenge is just sticking through the challenge. Whatever it is that you are going through, the bigger picture will always show us that we are ok. We might not always feel that way but here is a good tip….don’t think too far ahead!!! In crisis, we want change and we want it now. But if you think about it, we are ok. Get grounded a little by appreciating something that is not supposed to be in your control. I like to appreciate the blue sky, which we have been seeing a lot of lately. And even through a storm, above the clouds, is always a blue sky. Keep your chin up. Find what you appreciate and learn to flow. When you trust that everything you need and want is on its way to you, you can begin to relax and enjoy the journey.
