    Hi Jamie — I found myself spending hours doing little detail work on a project that I thought I needed to do — then I watched your bts (10-14) and you said “…..Sometimes we’re so invested in doing things that aren’t meaningful to us………..” and I realized that I was so wrapped up in the “doing” instead of the “being” with the outcome. You saved me hours and more hours of meaningless work that I did NOT have to do!!! So thanks for the reminder.

    your BTS shows are always inspiring. today the key word was ‘balance’ and this is something that is always a challenge for me. The star idea was a nice example of what and how to balance.

    Jamie, you’re amazing. Every day I have to get my fix of “BTS”. Today’s video hit home with me. Taking care of all 5 points of the star. I’ve neglected my yoga practice thru the summer and my body really knows it. Thank you so much for the inspiration. I have to say that your videos are the only ones that I constantly come back to. Wonderful!

    I loved hearing about your dad’s and your definitions of balance. I most like looking at it as a tetter totter or see saw fom the playground days. A bit of up and down, the challenge of not dropping down too hard or flying up to fast and furious as to loose your balance. Sometimes it was fun to just sit in perfect balance. If your friend on the other side was larger, like some of our challenges, it took more work to keep going.
    I felt most challenged with balance when I thought of it as me alone balancing with one foot on either side of the fulcrum, trying and working hard to keep myself in check and fall one way or the other. I much more enjoy having someone or something on the other side helping me keep the momentum going.. Your BTS is often that inspiration on the other side.
