Day 262: A fall heart.

Just a little nod from Autumn tonight. In the shape of a heart. Found on the sidewalk next to the bay.

Yoga done. Week begun.
I hope you have a sweet week ahead, full of beautiful colors and random hearts.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 261 :: a call for kindness

24 Sep

Day 261: Human Kindness.

I have been thinking about kindness for the past 24-hours, and my Random Act of Kindness commitment this week.

But, it has been a long 24-hours living not far from Burlington and the Cascade Mall. The shootings last night were surreal, and tragic, and everything that everyone has ever said about unnecessary violence. This time, it was just down the street.

But isn’t it always? Just down the street? Somebody’s street is always just down or out of the way of the latest violent act of randomness.

I was in Mount Vernon last night. I drove right by the mall on my way. I almost stopped to buy more underwear, because, I need some. But I didn’t because life and plans got in the way and I was running late. The only reason I bring it up is that it could be ANY of us buying something at a Macy’s counter on ANY random night.

And I think that is what has saddened me most. Why this keeps happening down any one street, or school, or movie theater, or mall just doesn’t make ANY sense to me. Violence knows no boundaries in times like these.

But I do know this.
How we choose to act on any given day makes a difference in the lives of others and our communities and for ourselves. Our choices matter. All of them. And, in my book, our world could use a whole hell of a lot more Random Acts of Kindness, if we choose. So I will.

Starting with me. Human kindness. Randomly. Thoughtfully. Repeatably.
That’s my choice.
What is yours?

Bright before me the signs implore me:
Help the needy and show them the way.
Human kindness is overflowing,
And I think it’s gonna rain today.…

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 259 :: kindness randomly acting

22 Sep

Day 259: More Love.

My friend Diane believes in the greater good. She should know, she has a heart of gold. And I’ve been thinking of that tonight for many reasons.

The Greater Good.
Diane sends me 4-letter words all the time. Words like “Good” are 4-letter words in her book. So are “Love” and “Care” and “Give.”

So today, when I was challenged to take on a Random Act of Kindness this week, I thought immediately of Diane. She talks about Random Acts of Kindness all the time. She SENDS me random acts of kindness almost every single day in little email notes. And she calls them a 4-letter word: RAOK.

Okay, it’s one she made up so it’s really an acronym but who’s counting here… it fits my story so I’m sticking with it.

RAOK.
This week will be devoted to RAOK. Who knows what I will do? I don’t know yet. I’m hoping the moment will find me. Suggested ideas are:

  • Pay for someone’s coffee
  • Leave a love note
  • Give (anything!) to a good cause
  • Pay for the toll of the car behind you

I LOVE this game. My heart is roaring with RAOK. I want to shout it out the window. RAAAAAOOOOOKKKKK!!

But that might ruin the surprise. Or scare the neighbors.

Want to join me?
RAOK on!

(And… if you see Diane, give her a random act of wonderful kindness from me!)

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 258 :: have a heart

22 Sep

Day 258: Love.

Tonight, I am beginning to feel better. And so… I am sharing this. A little love. A little heart.


With this yoga promise, I am learning something, or realizing something, about myself. It’s amazing how upset I get when my body gets sick. It definitely makes it hard for me to do yoga. And that drives me bonkers. It makes me sad, and mad.

And that’s a curious side effect. As if my body is teaching my mind to be a little more appreciative, a little more kind, a little more understanding, and gentle.

As if I need to have a little more heart for me.
Hum…..

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

20 Sep

Day 257: To the tough ones.

This is for the tough ones. Being tough. Oh, after a long24-hourr stomach bug I am feeling pretty tough. But, actually, not all that pretty.

And so, with that, I am going to downward dog crawl into bed.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

Day 256: Another One Bites the Dust.

The most amazing thing I can say about today is…. it’s over.

And that makes me feel good. Because it reminds me that we always get a redo. A reset button. A tomorrow. Really that’s kind of an amazing, every day occurrence that I never remember.

Yoga light tonight.
So, here’s to tomorrow.
Amaaahzing.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 255 :: golden girls

18 Sep

Day 255: Par-Tea.

As the weekend comes to a close and the Emmy’s are ending I’m thinking of the Golden Girls. Both the four dynamic actresses and my two college friends – Laura and Lisa.

When we were in our twenties Laura, Lisa and I shared a house together in Boston and we made a pact that we would all move back in together when we were old ladies. That was before marriages and jobs and children and life. And yet, it still seems like a good plan in so many ways. Women do live longer than men…

But to get to the golden oldies I’ve come to realize that I need to be golden at all ages. And soooo…. I introduce you to my new find…. Golden Milk!


It is supposed to support/boost the immune system. Based in turmeric (which apparently is an ancient miracle worker) and other good stuff like gingers and pepper depending on your recipe, it’s mixed with milk. It tastes like a chai tea. It’s become my nighttime ritual.

I’m in love. With the color (bright yellow and so happy) and the thought of how it is so, so, so good for me. To keep me golden. For my girls (all my girls)!

Namaste, Lisa and Laura.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 254 :: falling into place

17 Sep

Day 253: Leaves.

It’s official. The leaves are falling into place on this last week of summer. They are turning. Red. Yellow. Brown. And all sorts of piling up on the ground.


It’s also turning into the home “stretch” of the promise. (Yes, that was a play on words). I’m still not sure where this yoga promise is going or taking me, but I may not need to know… it will make it all clear…when it’s time…it always does.

That’s the beauty of a promise.
Namaste.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie
