JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 295 :: kind & relaxing

22 Oct
{Gilmore Girls}

Today was my lazy day. I ended up doing more than planned, and I have to say, that feels productive. And kind. Something about underpromising and overdelivering (even if only to my psyche!).

To cap it all off, I have decided to catch up with the girls – the Gilmore Girls.

Somehow I missed this show. It must have landed in my hectic, crazy busy years. But I have to say, it is fun to catch up on a time that already seems so far away. Slower pace. Small town charm.

And yet, the coffee addiction feels the same. This may be the sole TV character closest to my own coffee passion. Ironically, in this year of kindness, I have (again) given up coffee.

I am starting to think of it as a hiatus. Coffee is just on sabbatical. Feels better that way. And, it’s probably closer to the truth. I’m sure I will rebound at some date in the future. Until then, I will enjoy Lorelai Gilmore’s coffee addiction on screen as I get caught up on a decade I apparently missed.

And somehow, that seems kind.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

21 Oct
{Lazy}

I have been practicing the art of being lazy today. Other than a few errands my goal has been the sweet, sweet kindness of being calm. And a little bit lazy.

Here’s what’s on the docket for tomorrow:

This promise of kindness has been teaching me a surprising thing. How to slow down and enjoy it. Two very different things in my book. But I am learning.

And trying to enjoy it too.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 293 :: 4-letter word friday

20 Oct

Pets. 

On this 4-Letter Word Friday, I am touched by the kindness of pets. Specifically, my two dogs.

Pup, at age 16 (and a half!) is just a daily miracle. His big brown eyes can see straight through a person. His impeccable sense of timing (wake time, breakfast time, nap time and dinner time) is always on point. And he loves to cuddle more than the furry kitties he watches outside the window.

Even Brady, our crazy one, is full of love. I think it’s the love in him that makes him would so tight. His love of food (any type of food), meeting new people, running after the rain and catching flies is done with full-on enthusiasm.

Both keep us on our toes. They sometimes make me wonder who is really in charge here. And yet, I can’t imagine life without these kind creatures.

So this Friday is devoted to pets. pups and dogs.

May they awaken your soul with kindness.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

19 Oct

Stormy Art. 

Rainy days, all in a row, bring out the beautiful colors of Mother’s nature. Including this assortment of colorful leaves I spotted today:



It’s like an art piece, perfectly placed to make the colors pop!
How kind.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 291 :: kind & stormy

18 Oct

Oh, Rain. 

It’s been wet and dark and grey today. The first storm of winter. All rain and wind. In many ways, it feels so comfy and cozy and kind in its own way.

There’s something beautiful about the seasons changing. Leaves falling. Clouds gathering. Rain falling.

And there’s something even more beautiful about watching it, recognizing it, and honoring it. Kindness in many ways is accepting that which is.

Even in the rain.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 290 :: kind slowness

17 Oct

Oh, Internet. 

It’s day three of my internet being on strike. The good news is that the technician appointment is tomorrow and a new router will be installed. The bad news is that the interwebs are slow. I mean s …l …o …w.


So tonight’s post will be short as I share something that I read earlier today: it reminds me to SLOW down, be calm and enjoy the ride.

“Remember that everything that will occur in your life will occur in its own time. Quelling your urge to rush will enable you to witness yourself learning, changing, and becoming stronger. There is so much to see and do in between the events and processes that we deem definitive. If you are patient enough to take pleasure in your existence’s unfolding, the journey from one pinnacle to the next will seem to take no time at all.” – madisyn taylor

That reminds me …kindness is best absorbed at a slow pace.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

{enjoy the slow}

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 289 :: kind thoughts

16 Oct

Choice. 

One thing that has become very clear to me over this year is our power of choice. And choosing. Thoughts. Words. Actions. Reactions. Let alone the whole list of foods, people, things.

Kindness is a choice.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 287 :: courage

14 Oct

kindness.

I think this pretty much sums it up. Sometimes it takes more courage to be kind than we know. Than we feel like we can muster up. And yet, kindness is always the courageous choice.

13 Oct

Good.

As in, The Good Place. To round out this week I am in full-on wool socks, sweats, and hoodie sitting on the floor with a blankie watching TV. I can’t think of anything more “good” than laughing on a Friday night.

Laughter is kind.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie
