JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 365 :: a kind finale

31 Dec
{farewell 2017}

And here we are! The last day of 2017. The grand finale. The big hurrah… to a year of kindness.

There are so many words for kindness… I know because I looked them up:

And because I also just lived out an entire year pondering the power of kindness… Intentional acts of kindness to be exact. While I entered the year thinking I would be sprinkling kindness around the world in grand and amazing ways, what really happened was this — I found kindness in my own heart.

So much closer to home.

That always seems to be the way it goes with these promises. They open up areas inside of me I never knew existed. Never could have expected…and definitely didn’t plan on discovering. Even though they were there the entire time.

That’s the magic and the power of a purposeful promise. It’s always a game of setting an intention and then just showing up. Every single day. That’s all it takes. And then it will take you on the adventure of a lifetime (or at least a year!) full of twists and turns and surprise and delight until you end up sitting at your computer on the last day of the year realizing how perfect the entire year unfolded right before your very eyes.

Thank you, kindness. For letting me chase you this year, and then showing me you were right here all along, pulling at my heartstrings.

Thank you, kindness. For teaching me to look for you, starting inside myself and then spotting you inside the smiles, eyes, laughter, and love of others.

Most of all, thank you for teaching me to be more kind.

Tomorrow I announce a new promise for 2018… want to join me!?
Drumroll, please……

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 361 :: a kind year

27 Dec
{reflecting}

It’s beginning to look a lot like 2018… everywhere you go!

Before we get there, I’m beginning to reflect on 2017 – where the year has taken me, the path we have walked together … and how we got here.

What were your lessons from this year we call 2017?
I called it my Year of Kindness.  And it played out in ways I couldn’t imagine, as it always does with this promise work. I set a theme, I make a promise and I go into each year writing about it each and every day. Some days are way more exciting than others.

For instance, I never would have guessed a surprise pop-up wedding in the middle of Colorado would happen right in the middle of the year! Surprise. And, yet, it seemed so perfect — why didn’t I see it coming? I don’t know. (And how did we keep it a secret – long story!)  And yet, that is the magic of making these promises.

You never know what is going to happen. Until you try. And then, what transpires is always beyond my wildest dreams — and plans. They are even better than my own plans my own head could come up with — really.

And that is what makes this work so exciting. Sometimes you have to take the brain out of the equation and listen to your heart. And learning to do that is what one might call kindness.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 3 :: my kind of gift

3 Jan

Plan On.

It’s Day 3! And today is easy peasy. I’m sharing a little gift with you. It comes with a whole bunch of kindness from my heart. It also comes from an entire year of planning.

This is my planner. I created it for myself last year. Then I used it every day of 2016. It helped me stay on track. But it wasn’t perfect… so I updated it with all the things that worked. And removed the rest.

So, in a way, it’s perfected. But… nothing is every really PERFECT so here’s my wish for you:

1. Download this PDF planner
2. Use it, love it up, doodle on it, be bold with your goalicious self
3. Let me know how it works for you (and what you would add, change, edit, expand)

Enjoy kind soul. Happy 2017!

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 339 :: looking forward

4 Dec

Day 339: 2017.

It’s hard to believe a Year of Yoga is almost over. Yoga. Every damn day. It has come in fits and spurts, in deep dives and stretching, and in tiny little moves forward. All fit in between the day-to-day moments we call life. I have learned much. Mostly, a lesson in kindness – toward myself.


2017 is almost here. And with it comes a new promise. I can’t wait to share mine! Wondering if you want to share yours?

Namaste, Promises. Namaste.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie
