JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 273 :: a mission of love

30 Sep

Kindness.

Oh, October! You are almost here… and I think I’m “getting it” now. October is the “aha” month. The month when things begin to make sense. And, in this year of making a 365-day promise of intentional acts of KINDNESS I am reminded of the most powerful lesson of all – LOVE.

My promise this year is wrapping itself all the way back around and touching my heart with the most original lesson of all – LOVE.

My mission in this life is love. Thus, it seems, all my lessons are about love too. They come in different forms of course. And this year, it seems, love wants to remind me to have fun -to play- and to tap into my passion.

Oh, October, I know you have more waiting for me. Until then (tomorrow it all begins) I will remember to walk with love on the soles of my shoes – and a playful heart.

More tomorrow….

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 272 :: 4-letter word friday

29 Sep

Good.

Tonight has me thinking about the 4-letter word good.
Mostly because there seems to be so much bad news in the world these days.

Even so, I have to believe there is still So much GOOD. And then I found this — a reminder that we have to BE the good, not just look for it.

#Good

More tomorrow….

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 271 :: the secret of kindness

28 Sep

Warm.

I found this tonight, and I have to say… it’s so true.

In this year of Kindness, I am learning to focus on the power of self-kindness. It’s funny how these promises go and where they take me — I started this year thinking KINDNESS would be about others and small acts of sharing & giving. I’m learning it’s just as much about accepting & receiving.

How kind is that?

More tomorrow….

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 270 :: the kindness of cooking

27 Sep

Whole.

So this happened tonight:

It was not from my doing… of course, it came from Justin, the man I call husband now. He taught me how to poach an egg tonight – and then he turned it into this. It was incredibly yummy.

Of course, it was his idea, his recipe, his teaching me how to craft in the kitchen. I added the Tumeric – my idea and I must say it tasted great. Not sure it really mattered but in my head, it added that extra zing.

And that’s how we make a good team. Zing and zang, if you will. It reminds me that life is better with helpers, and friends, and partners.  Kindness is better that way too. (And so is food!)

More tomorrow….

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 269 :: kind and calm

26 Sep

Hereos.

It’s been such a year. Hurricanes, earthquakes, topsy-turvy turnover and tormenting controversies. I find myself confused.

And then I remember kindness. It is kind to remain stable and rooted on solid ground even when everything around the world seems to be spinning into chaos.

One of my dear friends gave me a bit of wisdom tonight… she said:

“Out of chaos come heroes.”

Here’s to the heroes.
And calmness.
And kindness.

More tomorrow….

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 268 a season for kindness

25 Sep

Hello Fall.

IT’s almost October.  And what I know about October is this: the month of harvest. It’s also the month that my goals and promises each year take hold. Just like this tree I spotted the other day:

The tree is turning red as the season is turning a corner. It has me thinking about KINDNESS, and what this year is teaching me. As the season changes, so do my understandings. Every year this happens. In October.

It is the month of understanding — the time of harvesting all that has been planted, all that has been dreamed of, all the efforts that have been exerted begin to come into full bloom.

So, I am excited to welcome October, and the lessons that are to be collected up, gathered and enjoyed. It’s just around the corner.

More tomorrow….

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 267 :: kind treats

24 Sep

Planning ahead.

It’s hard to believe it’s almost October. Where has the time gone this year? So far, Kindness has taught me many things in this year of intentional kindness. One is to take things a bit lighter — and not be so serious.

So in the name of lightness and fun here are some costumes and tricks or treats… and some potential Halloween faces:

Have a favorite?

More tomorrow….

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 267 :: renew

23 Sep

Haircut Day.

Today was haircut day! And it feels like the kindest (intentional) act of the week for me. So fresh. So new. So good!

Why does a new haircut feel so good? And kind? I’m not entirely sure, but I know this: it’s all in the heart.

Catching kindness?

More tomorrow….

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 266 :: oh amelia

22 Sep

Her-story.

Amelia has my attention. After seeing a photo of her on a Fairhaven shop wall today, my interested was peaked. The shop owner said her grandfather was Amelia’s cousin. How intriguing! I asked the shop owner what she thought her theory of Amelia’s mysterious disappearance was and we chatted for a while, talking myth and mystery.

So tonight, I watched a documentary about her life.
What a life.

As I think about Kindness, I realize the kind act that Amelia performed for so many women after her. She was more than a trailblazer. She became a mythical hero of sorts, paving the way for women after her to point to the sky and know that they too can do anything.

Who knows the truth of how her story ended? But I do know this: It only takes one to go first, in order to allow more to fly after.

She certainly inspired the beginning of many little girls stories and dreams and biggest adventures.
How kind.

More tomorrow….

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 265 sing

21 Sep

Kindness.

My intentional act of kindness for the night:  SING!
I think it’s kind to watch something that makes real life disappear even for just a moment… for a cartoon and a song.


More tomorrow….

Lovemore,
Jamie
