JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 101 :: 4-letter word friday

14 Apr

Flies.

As in time.

It’s hard to believe we are already here. One hundred days behind us in the year of 2017. Where does the time go? My how it flies. And where exactly does it fly off to in the first place?

It reminds me that life is short.
And is there any other reason for us to be kind?

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 65 :: questions

9 Mar

Of kindness.

I spoke with a friend yesterday who shared a simple dinnertime question of kindness. Each night at dinner she asks her children two questions:

1. What did you do to be kind to others today?

2. What did other’s do for you?

I think it’s a great dinnertime game. Sometimes the most simple questions are the most meaningful questions.

Kindness Challenge – how’s it going?
How can you make every act matter this week?
How would it impact your week?
How could it change your life?

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

The Real Rewind.

I stumbled on this tonight.  Giving credit where it is due: it’s from Chris and appears to be inspired by Kurt.

Hello babies. Welcome to Earth. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It’s round and wet and crowded. On the outside, babies, you’ve got a hundred years here. There’s only one rule that I know of, babies-“God damn it, you’ve got to be kind.”

― Kurt Vonnegut

Prints and more available through Society6.

The words seem timeless. And so very necessary now.
We’ve got to be kind.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 29 :: being kind

29 Jan

Kindness Matters.

This sign now sits next to my bedstand. It was a birthday gift (thanks Justin!) but it’ also a reminder of my promise this year – to be kind and to embrace intentional acts of kindness.

It’s a reminder, for sure. It’s a sign, for real. But what I know is this: we have to walk the talk in order for something to be ingrained in us and then manifest on the outside around us.

So I am walking (and talking) and trying to incorporate kindness into my days. Even when so much on the outside seems to go against that grain.

Want to walk in kindness with me?

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 21 :: signs of kindness

22 Jan

Be Nice.

Signs. Signs. Everywhere signs. Tonight, I am reminded that what we look for, we see. And what am I seeing? Signs of KINDNESS.

It’s like Red Car Syndrome. You know, the effect of buying a red car and then ALL you see driving by and passing you on the freeway is a red car.  The exact red car and model you just bought.

Today’s sign of kindness was spotted at Paperboat in Bellingham.

Jaynane and I were shopping and I spotted the BE KIND sign. “Look at this!” I shrieked with joy as I showed her the sign.

“Yes, but look at this.” She pointed to the sign next to it that read “I got it from my mama.”

“Even better.” I smiled.

Because it’s true. I got my kindness from my mama. And when I am not kind, I hear my mother’s voice in my head.

“Jamie.” She still says my name in only the way a mother can, even though she is somewhere so far away.

Kindness is a practice, I’m learning. It’s a practice that takes “practice.” Kindness also feels like a rubberband. You don’t realize you need to bounce back into the Kindness Zone until you get all stretched out to the other side. Maybe there are incredible super kind souls out there who never find themselves in that mean dark zone…but when I do, that’s when I hear my deceased mother’s voice.

“Jamie, be nice.” She says until my rubberband bounces back.

When those words hit my brain, I know that she isn’t telling me to be “NICE” as much as she is telling me to be a human being who respects others. Be the person who is compassionate, caring, empathetic and understanding. Not the one who is judgmental or snarky. Not the girl who is mean. Who is selfish. Who points and whines, who snaps and barks out of that deep dark place that doesn’t feel good enough. In those two simple words, she is telling me that I am enough and I need to stand up straight and start acting like it. In those two little words she is reminding me that I am loved and therefore I am expected to give love.

In other words. “Be Kind.”
I got it from my mama.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie
