JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 113 :: the joy of loudness

22 Apr
{make some noise}

I was around many children this week during my travels and there is one thing that sticks out in my mind. They are loud with their joy.

And shouldn’t joy be loud?

I suppose there is a place for quiet joy, gentle revelry, and silent excitement. But the best part of joy should be big and bold and sometimes, very, very loud.   

So go out there and be loud with your joy. If you don’t… who else will?

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 57 :: sunshine & joy

27 Feb
{breakthrough)

Sometimes the breakthrough comes after the break… and today, the sun broke through the clouds outside my window. If only for a moment.

It had me thinking about the joy of spring. And how I cannot wait to experience more of it.

My heart is calling for spring. And our world is certainly calling for more joy. May they both sprout forth.  

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 54 :: joyous investing

24 Feb
{invest}

My first Kiva! And I couldn’t be more proud.

This is the introduction of Pretty Pockets, a company that is empowering moms with nothing but elegant and practical accessories they are proud to wear.

I love this diaper bag backpack that also holds a bottle and diaper changer inside this very stylish package. It is a Kiva project that I participated in by giving a small loan to a woman with a big dream.

The irony is that it was a wedding gift to Justin and I… and it keeps on giving. I love following the development of the brand and the product as well as Madhu‘s updates in the process.

It brings me great joy. I don’t know if it’s the investment in someone else’s dream more than the return I get in my heart. But, joy it is.

And that has me thinking about investments. And investment in someone else’s dream is a contribution to your heart with exponential returns.

Pretty Pockets, indeed!

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 50 :: one step forward

20 Feb
{pushing joy}

It hit me today. I’ve spent my entire life pushing joy. Pushing it around in front of me. All the diagnoses, the doctors, and the surgeries. They have all been me pushing me forward, to find joy.

And I think that’s the payoff of persistence. Which I am, if nothing else.

I also realized something else today. Sometimes we don’t know where it’s all going — or what we are pushing toward. But it’s important to keep going.

Even when it feels like you can’t keep going, you can. Pick yourself up and take just one step forward. 

Keep pushing joy.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie
