JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 82 :: resting

26 Mar

Kindness.

I can’t remember the last time I spent two straight days in bed. It’s been awhile.

There is so much kindness in resting. Resting kindness. In our go-go-go hurry up I want it yesterday world, there is something quite beautiful about being so tired and sick you can’t get out of bed.

It’s all in the resting.
The quiet kindness of rejuvenation.

And the good news is that I feel better. The results will be tomorrow, in the form of a question. Can I be so kind that I don’t push myself back to the sick zone?

But now, I rest.
Sweet dreams.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 27 :: 4-letter friday

27 Jan

GOOD.

It’s 4-letter word Friday! Diane, the queen of this game, the one who introduced me to it, sent me a birthday wish yesterday. It said:

“May your birthday and all your days be filled with love, help, hope, kind acts, pals, fair play and good time(s)”

I have to hand it to her.. she is GOOD at this game!  So tonight, I am celebrating the 4-letter word GOOD.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 287 :: the beauty of chicago

20 Oct

Day 287: Pretty.

I’ve come to a decision.
It’s a big one. And it’s this: We need more beauty in our world right now.

I was reminded at dinner tonight, when in the midst of all the thoughts and goings on in my mind, I noticed the flowers sitting on the table top right in front of me.


There is so much beauty in our world.
If only we open our eyes to it.
Thanks for the reminder Chicago.

Namaste, Windy City. Namaste.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 251 :: living beauty

14 Sep

Day 251: So full.
I’m such a sucker for beauty. It makes me feel calm and alive, relaxed and energized. All at the same time.

And this is just one of the views I love from a place we now call home:

Calm. Alive.
Relaxed. Energized.

Maybe that’s the recipe that yoga is trying to teach me too?

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 213 :: magic moments

9 Aug

Day 213: Beauty.

I’m sitting here thinking about magical moments. I’ve had quite a magical day. I’m watching the Olympics, appreciating the magical moments these athletes are experiencing, as all the days they have been living most of their life for unfolds in this moment.

And then I’m appreciating the magical moments I share with the women in my life – my aunt, my nieces, and my mom’s best friend. From moments of shopping, trying on bathing suits to giggling like little girls with little girls.

There is magic that happens when women get together. Even if it’s just shopping. There is magic all around us.

Pure magic.


More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

P.S. And now I yoga!

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 131 :: the breath

11 May

Day 131: Take my breath away.

There are times when I pinch myself living here in the PNW. Moments where I catch my breath or catch myself breathless. The height of the trees. The roll of the waves. The raindrops settling on flowers.

And tonight. The sunset across an expansive sky painted with clouds and washed with color.

There are also moments of clarity that come from these moments of beauty. Maybe it’s all this yoga I am doing this year that is unwinding my body and my mind, one nerve and muscle at a time.

But at the core of it all, I know underlies my breath.

Which has me thinking…
Maybe our breath is all we really have after all. Everything else we just need to breathe through. The moments that take our breath away and the moments that knock all the air there is out of us.

Breathe on.
Until we find the next tree, ocean, wave, sky, sunset, to take our breath away.
Breathe on.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 108 :: sharing sunset

18 Apr

Day 108: Beauty.

I love beauty. And I love living in a beautiful place. A place that takes my breath away, really. And tonight, Mother Nature put on a spring show.

One that reminds me to breath, to relax, to sit, to watch, to be.

Inspiring, really.
Maybe that’s what this year of yoga wants me to know? To live with beauty and inspiration. To breath, to relax, to sit, to watch, to be.

We’ll find out….

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 314 :: blissful memories

14 Nov

Today’s bliss…memories.

I pass this photo everyday. It hangs in a frame on the wall in my hallway. It’s a beautiful memory for me. The once in a lifetime moment when my bestie Sara was in Paris at the Same. Exact. Time. I was in Paris.

What are the odds of that?

I look at it fondly every time I pass it. In me, the Eiffel Tower seems to be growing out of my head. But in my heart I runneth over with LOVE.

In this photo, in this Paris, I am loving this moment. Loving life.
That’s what Paris does to me. And that’s how I choose to remember her, focusing on her beauty. I have learned in my own life struggles to always focus on the beauty, and dear Paris, that is what you do best.

And, that, brings me comfort and a little bit of the promise of bliss. For the future.
Focus on the beauty, Belle Paris. 
la vie de joie

More tomorrow. 
Lovemore,
Jamie
