JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 103 :: insta-joy

12 Apr
{chicken}

Tonight I learned that Insta-Joy comes straight out of an Instapot. Otherwise known as how to stave off hunger with a frozen piece of chicken in less than 20 minutes.

Sometimes I marvel at all the tools and technology and advancements we have in our modern life. With so many ways to make life easier, you would think we would also have copious amounts of joy. Or at least an appliance to plug into the wall and turn stressedoutness into joyfulness.


Joy has me thinking…there’s must be an easy way to Insta-Joy.
Maybe this year will show us?

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 102 :: shiny joy

11 Apr
{inside job}

Joy is an inside job.

As I move through this promise of JOY I am noticing that something keeps niggling at me, something inside, forcing me to pay attention to that which brings me joy.

The ironic thing is this: joy always starts from the inside. You can’t wear it. You can’t hold it. You can’t drape it over you. It has to start from deep inside. From there, it easily shines out in all directions around you.

So….dig deep.
And shine on.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY :: 101 flavors of joy

10 Apr
{choosing}

I was thinking about ice cream today. And chocolate. And chocolate ice cream. What joy!

The best part of ice cream is choosing your flavor. Which brings me back to joy. Just like your favorite color, shouldn’t it be just as easy to choose your flavor of joy?

Maybe it’s skiing, or dancing, or writing, or drawing or listening or sleeping (why not?) — point is… Joy should be your choice, your flavor, your color.

So what’s your flavor?

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 100 :: 100 days to find joy

9 Apr
{day 100}

It’s Day 100. The first line of demarcation for this year and this promise of Joy. Can you believe it’s here? What does Day 100 mean to you?

  • 100 days of school?
  • 100 days of work?
  • 100 days of dreaming?
  • 100 days of training?
This is a milestone, for sure. Of your life — and your year. What have you done with it? I have been Joying-Up. If that’s a phrase. Actually, I think it should be — but let’s shorten it to Joy-Up!

Over these last 100 days, Joy has been teaching me to focus on what I want, what I love and what matters most. Joy has been right by my side, holding my hand when I make a wrong turn and gently bringing me back into alignment.

And, most of all, Joy has been reminding me that we are what we think. We create what we think about. Then we experience what we created. And the cycle goes on.

So what have you been focusing on for the last 100 days?
What will you focus on for the next 100 days of this year?

Joy is a powerful force – like Jedi mind tricks.
You can use it to your advantage. 

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 99 :: be loud

8 Apr
{with your joy}

We spent the day with family. I cannot think of a better way to be joyful – family, food, funny jokes, forgotten stories, and even more fabulous people.

And, of course, a dog. His name is Jake.

Jake loves his people. He loves most everybody actually. And his treats. He wags his tail and prances with joy from person to person in every room, smelling them with his nose as if to remind them that they belong in his world.  It’s Jake’s stamp of approval.

He is a gentle giant. A sweet soul. A big white dog with a round pink belly leaving a soft spot in all of our hearts.

Jake taught me a little bit about joy today — and the importance of being loud with it. Because he doesn’t need to be reminded when it’s time for dinner or a treat.


Don’t be shy to ask for your treats. Wag your tail.

Be loud with your joy! 

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 98 :: joy is a rainbow slide

7 Apr
{cloud landing}

I was thinking about joy today… and wondering what is the opposite of joy? I came up with a short list that all related to one big word…stress.

Then I remembered a dream I had the other night. In that incredible dreamland world in my head, I was riding a rainbow slide. Everything was easy. I mean… eeeeeasy. And I landed on a cloud. What could be better than that? 

So…why can’t every single day be as easy as sliding on a rainbow with a cloud landing? Maybe it can. And maybe that is what JOY is trying to tell me.

Slide on more rainbows.
Land on more clouds.
Stress be gone.  

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 96 :: whispering joy

5 Apr
{listening joy}

I can feel joy whispering in my ears these days. This is what happens when I approach the 100+ day mark. I start to feel the power of my promise pulse in my veins. But its very small… almost like a whisper. 

Which brings me to this: listening.

Listening to our joys might be even more important than experiencing joy. 
Listen to the whispers in your ear. 
Listen to the joy that wants to carry you forward. 

They are the sound of your dreams brewing and blooming.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 91 :: sunshine

4 Apr
{come out and play}

It rained again today. Which has me missing the sun and warmer days. More than anything else, the rain reminds me how much I appreciate the sunshine.

And, that makes me think of joy. Sometimes joy is as simple as a little bit of sunshine. The little things are so big.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie
