JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 281 :: positively kind

8 Oct

Rise up.

If there’s one thing that being under the weather gives me, it’s this: perspective.
Which is why I picked this quote as I nursed my little head cold today.

We rise by lifting others.
We also rise by lifting ourselves too. Because what goes around comes around as trite as that sounds.

Kindness has a boomerang effect. And, as I am learning, sharing the power of kindness starts with taking care of ourselves.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 280 :: saturday night live

7 Oct

TV.

And they said that “television” would never amount to any cultural significance. I beg to differ. As I write this blog post, I have Saturday Night Live playing on TV. It’s a throwback, a vintage reel from 1979 – featuring Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers.

It has me thinking about the kindness that comes with honoring our past. And those who have passed. If it wasn’t for TV there would be fewer stories to experience all over again, for the first time.

There’s something magical about capturing a moment in time.
And something even more special about seeing it with new eyes.
How kind of that little, antiquated, invention called Tele-Vision.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

6 Oct

Well.

It has been a Nyquil/Sudafed sort of day. So, on this 4-letter Friday, I’m focused on being well. And that begins with taking care of my body. What could be more kind?

5 Oct

Pass it on.

Kindness has taught me this: The best things in life are shared. Even better, what we give, we eventually receive.

Which is why I love this quote so much:

Kindness. Rules.

Jamie

4 Oct

Free Fun.

Who doesn’t love FREE? I love free fun. Even more than that, I love doing things that cost nothing but are priceless – usually, creating memories with friends or family.

Ironically, in this year of Kindness, the “Big K” is teaching me that FUN is kind.

Especially when we are kind to others.
Most especially when we are kind to ourselves.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 276 :: keeping it together 

3 Oct

From The Kindness Diaries.

Oh, kindness. Thank you for teaching me so much this year, and tonight for teaching me this: Good friends make all the difference. 

Here’s to keeping the love, support, and laughter of friends together.
That’s kindness in my diary.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 275 :: free falling 

2 Oct

Choosing Kindness.

There are days when I feel like I have all the answers. And then, there are days, like today, when I feel that I know nothing at all. In this year of intentional acts of kindness, I am reminded that sometimes we don’t have the answers or control.

But we always have a choice.

And there is a moment that occurs, in the middle of chaos, in the middle of a broken heart, in the middle of loss and losing where all we have left is a choice. Our choice.

Kindness has taught me this:
That choice is our responsibility — it’s how we react and respond. The more space we build between that moment of terror, and how we answer the call, is the place where we find peace in our hearts.

And kindness.

While our hearts reel and our minds cope with the reality of the world we live in today, I do know this, in the words that Tom Petty gave us: the waiting is the hardest part.  

The waiting is the hardest part
Every day you see one more card
You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
The waiting is the hardest part

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 274 giving up on kindness

1 Oct

Pleasure.

I found this article tonight:

How Kindness Became Our Forbidden Pleasure

One quote caught my attention:

In giving up on kindness — and especially our own acts of kindness — we deprive ourselves of a pleasure that is fundamental to our sense of well-being.


Art by Jean-Pierre Weill from The Well of Being

One point made in the article is that kindness requires a sense of vulnerability. And open-heartedness. The proliferation of the internet with anonymous comments, posts, and tweets has given rise to the age of snarkiness. And that works against kindness — and our well-being.

Well being.
Are those the magic words to open the door of kindness — for you, for me, for everyone?

If you read the article… I would love to know what do you think.
With an open heart.

More tomorrow….

Lovemore,
Jamie

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.

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
