JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 19 :: passing down kindness

19 Jan

Patience

I’ve been thinking much today about what we are passing on, passing down, passing through in this transition that seems to be taking over all the heart space and airwaves. And I’ve landed on this:

I will continue to practice and cultivate patience. And love. And Kindness. In whatever amounts I can muster. And, along with that is fearless confidence. Because love always wins. It is what we are here to learn and experience, in whatever way it unfolds.

Pass it on.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 18 :: kind again

18 Jan

Patience.

This touched my heart tonight.

It has me thinking about what it takes to make anything happen…. change, progress, movements. They all start within. They all take a commitment for change. Even kindness, I am learning, takes a commitment on the inside first, then it can move and expand.

I spent the last week thinking about Confidence. Did you play along with the Kindness Challenge #2? I learned that my confidence (and kindness) grows with patience. Of which, I lack. Patience is hard. I mean you have WAIT for it to happen. And I hate waiting. I like doing. So…patience is a tough gig for me. So, this week:

Coffee.

Hum…. when I think about kindness today, I think about my coffee cup.

I like that it holds a message for me. I like the power of intention. I like remembering that kindness is a choice. a CHOICE. Now isn’t that nice! Kind of makes me happy.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 15 :: sunday night kindness 

15 Jan

Planning ahead.

It’s a Sunday around here. Trying to soak in the sun before the rain arrives this week. Trying to soak in a few hours of relaxation before the work arrives this week. Trying to soak in the slow moments of a Sunday morning mocha too.


That’s a bit of kindness my weekend can use. It makes me smile. I’m also smiling at the words my Aunt wrote to me tonight:

“Happy Birthday a few days early… start the celebration now. It’s a good way to be kind to yourself 😙

What a nice sentiment. I didn’t even think of that! Celebrating weeks early, or even just celebrating myself as being an Intentional Act of Kindness.

And that brings me to this:
Sometimes we need to see the world through they eyes of others in order to see exactly what it is we need for ourselves. (Thanks Aunt DeAnne!)

How kind.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 14 :: kindness in football

14 Jan

Winning.

We started our day by watching The Brady Six. It’s an ESPN documentary that tells the story of how Tom Brady went from the 199th pick in the NFL to be the best of the best (even better than all those other draft picks ahead of him).

It also tells the story of grit, determination, and heart.
It also makes us cry. Every time we watch it.

So tonight, while watching the Patriots game (nail biter) I had to ask myself. Is there kindness in football?

“There’s no kindness in football!” I heard my head say. There is hitting and smashing and strategic annihilation. But kindness?

Could there possibly be kindness in football? I mean, other than the PSA commercials that happen in between major sponsored ads showcasing large men in tights doing nice things for the community, like reading books to children. But really, that’s after the fact. Inside the game of football is there any ounce of kindness?

Could there be kindness on the field? While helmets smash and bodies go flying about the end zone and into the injury zone? No. Definitely not.

What about in the stands? The locker room? The parking lot? The living rooms around the world tuning into the game. Ehhhhh….

But then I thought back to the tear-jerking Brady Six documentary…. and all the heart and soul of all of those little boys and high school stars and college players and NFL hopefuls. There must be kindness there?

And then I realized…. there IS kindness in football. It’s found inside the fabric of a dream. In little kid dreams. In their preparation and training. In their parents carting them around to countless practices and tournaments so that they may continue living out their dream for as long as it lasts.

And that’s what the Brady Six is really all about. Our dreams. For ourselves. For our children. For the underdog, doggedly preparing every single day every when no one is looking. When no one believes in them. When nobody else thinks they can do it. Except they know, somewhere inside themselves that … they can.

There is kindness in that type of dream. No matter what team you love or root for or follow or play for, there is kindness in winning because it is the culmination of our collective dream to keep DREAMING alive.

What could be kinder than that?
(Minus all the injuries of course!)

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 13 :: 4-letter word friday

13 Jan

Fate.

It’s Friday the Thirteenth. After a Full Moon. And today’s 4-letter Word Friday is appropriately chosen as FATE.

As in… choosing your Fate. And kindness is part of that fateful equation.

For what it’s worth “Fate” scores seven points if you play it in Scrabble. But it is worth so much more in life. We make our own choices…. we create our own kindness… and we are the masters of our own fate.

If kindness travels back to us, then kind soul, let me just say, here’s to your good fate.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 12 :: one of a kindness

11 Jan

Respect.

This landed in my lap today. Couldn’t have come at a better time.
ONE OF A KINDNESS you say? Yes! glassybaby

I’ve also been thinking a lot about respect. And the Respect Challenge I issued to myself and anyone else who wanted to join in. It’s been an interesting week, learning to choose my words carefully – and respectfully – and intentionally.

I have failed many times already. In just one week. How sad and eye opening.

But the little wins have been SO worth it. I have found that just a few words of respect create an energy of abundance. They expand. They grow into much more than just the words and their meanings. They power up and push forward. They linger in our minds.

We attach our dreams to words.
We attach our confidence to words of respect.

It has been a good lesson, this respect. It makes me wonder: What if we all chose to speak with respect? Even when we don’t agree, don’t see eye-to-eye, don’t understand, don’t get it? Especially when we feel that little evil little force inside bubbling up. pushing to break free and say something that is NOT respectful. Especially then.

And that brings me to this. I am so grateful you read this far.
You are one of a kindness.
Respectfully, yours.

More tomorrow, kind soul.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 10 :: kind eyes

10 Jan

Clear.

I’ve heard the saying of having “kind eyes” but today I was actually kind to mine. My new eyeglasses arrived!

As I put them on my nose and nestled them into place the whole world became clear. Crystal clear. It’s amazing how blurriness can just creep in while you don’t realize it is happening.

It was a good reminder for me too.
Kindness is all about being clear. Crystal clear.
In every aspect of life. Even when it comes to the parts that do all seeing.

More tomorrow, kind soul.
Lovemore,
Jamie

P.S.  Challenge #1 is on through tomorrow!  Are you Practicing Respect?
If you choose to accept this challenge, try one of the following acts:
– admire someone with kind words
– point out a particular and appreciated detail with kind words
– use thoughtful words to compliment someone on an achievement
