JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 243 :: keeping promises

31 Aug

Fortune Telling.

I had a wonderful Chinese food dinner tonight with my official Mother-In-Law – how fun is that? And fortunate too in so many ways.

My fortune cookie actually said this when I cracked it open: “Keep the promises that you make.”

I mean, really?? How ironic is that? Since that is basically what I do best… promises. I show up every night here on this blog, keeping my promise to myself and to you, reading this on whatever night you may find me.

I am also keeping another promise to myself this year in a year of kindness — a 30-day promise! I will tell you more about it tomorrow. Promise.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 242 :: this little leaf of mine

30 Aug

I’m gonna let it shine.

This little leaf landed on my computer. I like this photo for the contrast. The red and the black and silver make for a nice pop of color.

I also like the contrast of technology and nature.


It’s a KIND reminder to me – to get outside. To not sit at my desk ALL day long. And to stop and smell the fresh fall air trying to circle all around me.

I like how this little leaf tells me such a big story. Pick up a leaf, take a break, and be kind to yourself.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 241 :: oh deer

29 Aug

Kind walks.

As I was out for a walk tonight, I spotted this little one on the path ahead of me.

He’s a buck, with a little rack on his head, but from the back he looked like a pet, or a dog, loping up the street ahead of me.

I asked my Medicine Woman what a deer symbolizes, and she reminded of me of this:

“They symbolize kindness, and a reminder to be kind to yourself, and those around you.”

Ironic?
Seems appropriate in this year of kindness.
And a good reminder.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 240 :: two months

28 Aug

Kind memories.

It was just two months ago today… and tonight I am taking in the memories. And take out! We celebrated our two month anniversary with Thai food and a movie.


Kindness comes in many forms – and celebrating the little anniversaries of life is one of them… even two months.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 239 :: tide rolling in

27 Aug

Kindness.

Yesterday, we spent the afternoon with family at the water’s edge watching the tide roll in. It was a wonderful invitation for a Saturday afternoon. And such a KIND moment to be with family, water, beach, nature, children, dogs, and of course, some treats too!

It was a treat to be treated to such a beautiful day outside with people we love.
Could anything be more kind?

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 215 kindness

26 Aug

Seeing stars.

One of Pup’s favorite things is riding in the car. A car ride. It brings him so much joy. However…. today…. I think we found something even better.

A Pupachino. From Starbucks. You can see the live video here.


He loved it. And, thanks to the guys at Starbucks, it was the perfect act of kindness, for a pup named Pup.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 214 :: 4-letter word friday

25 Aug

LOVE.

It’s Friday. And for some reason I find myself watching the news. Floods, hurricanes, hate crimes, fighting. Not a good strategy for looking for kindness.

Which leads me back to the 4-letter L word – love. 
Love and kindness go together, hand in hand.

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love. For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
~Nelson Mandela

Tuning the news out.
Tuning into something more beautiful and kind.
What would happen if we all tuned into to a kinder vibe?

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 213 :: cracked

24 Aug

Oops, I did it again.

It’s amazing how fast things can change. In the blink of an eye, really.
This is what my phone looks like…. now…

I have to admit… I lost my cool over it too.

I didn’t mean to, it just seemed to be the icing on the cake today. Luckily, Justin remained as calm as a cucumber and called Verizon so we could fix it.

I now have a new iPhone. And… it’s even better.

  • 3x the storage space
  • Faster
  • With a super duper screen protector
  • And in Rose Gold …Matches my iWatch!

It’s a good reminder that when things go wrong, it’s just because something better is waiting to enter that space.  And there’s no reason to get all cracked up about it.

It’s almost as if I can hear my new iPhone talking to me now: “Hold onto your cool, baby… life is gonna get better.”

I promise.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 212 :: win or lose

23 Aug

So good. So good.

We watched some of the Little League World Series tonight, and I have to say… it breaks my heart. I don’t know why I have such a hard time watching those little guys win (AND lose!).

The first team that takes the lead to the win makes me happy – and then I root for the underdog. Then the underdog takes the lead and my heart flip flops, hurting for the other team. It’s a vicious cycle.

It doesn’t feel very kind. But I do know this about sports – being a good sport means giving your best, and shaking hands at the end of the game. Win or lose.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 211 :: lavender kindness

22 Aug

Smells good.

I love lavender. Like…. really LOVE lavender. So this weekend I was delighted to find the Pelindaba Lavender store at Friday Harbor on San Juan Island.

They claim to be the largest lavender farm in North America. And while I would have LOVED to visit the farm while we were on the island, we had a boat to catch. So I brought the benefits of the farm home with me!

These are just some of the treasures I brought home… oh, la la!

  • Linen Spray
  • Lotion
  • Cleaner
  • Candles

And with that, let me just say this: I think lavender is pretty kind.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie
