JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 364 :: a kind way

30 Dec
{forgiveness}

So many lessons. One of my biggest from this year of Kindness, this year called 2017, is the big doozie. Forgiveness.

She has floated in an out of my life like a little butterfly. Popping up here and there, year after year, reminding me how to cultivate forgiveness. And this year, she popped up again.

Floating above me, calling to me, reminding me to practice the art of forgiveness. It is a kind lesson. Maybe the kindest of them all. For forgiveness floats in and out, back and forth and then always returns.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 41 :: bring it on butterfly

10 Feb
I’m thinking of butterflies tonight. Mostly because it’s time for change, I can feel it in the air, with the blossoms on the trees, the seasons are a changing. 

There are butterflies all over my desk. On my notebook, on my pad of sticky paper, all staring back at me. As if saying…. get ready for change!

Transition. The butterfly is so good at it. 

“From egg, to larvae (caterpillar), to pupa (the chrysalis or cocoon) and from the cocoon the butterfly emerges in her unfurling glory.

What a massive amount of transition this tiny creature undergoes. Consider for a moment the kind of energy this expends. I daresay if a human were to go through this kind of change we’d freak out!”

Yes. Freak out. I can’t help but look back at the calendar and realize I am on the verge of hitting the year mark of my life turning upside down. Time flies when you’re learning how to turn into a butterfly.

It’s part of why I chose BLISS as my promise this year. To pursue that which is what I think we all aspire to on some level. And it goes by so many names.

Happiness. Joy. Excitement. Contentment. Bliss.
Bring it on butterfly. Bring it on.

More tomorrow. 
Lovemore,
Jamie

Jamie’s BLOG – DAY 170 :: just when the caterpillar…

18 Jun


Just a simple thought today that reminds me there is always more.

There is indeed always more. And isn’t that beautiful?

More tomorrow.

Day 83: f*ing friday :: fire it up

23 Mar

It’s F*ing Friday!
I mentioned some of my favorite F words back on Day 5 in Year 1, including: Fearless, Fabulous, Fine, Fun, Faith, Freedom, Forgiveness, to name a Few.

Last week I dove into the word Free Food. 

Today’s F*ing Friday is dedicated to the word:
Fire it up.

As in, passion.

Tonight, I led a Women on Fire Tea at Cottey College.

It was significant for me because it my first time leading a Women on Fire Tea.

But, even MORE significant is the fact that the tea was for young women at my alma mater, Cottey College.

I am so impressed with and on fire about these young women.

Tonight’s tea was dedicated to Debbie Phillips ~ the founder of Women on Fire ~ who was also leading a tea in New York City at the exact same time we gathered around our table in Nevada, Missouri.

And, I think that’s the special magic of being a Woman on Fire.
To be connected, over years, miles and a mission.
To share dreams, passions, goals, yearnings and unfounded joy.
To weep, laugh and cry.
To honor and applaud each other as we all take the next step – together.

It’s somewhat ironic to me that the room where we gathered tonight was in a building called the Women’s Leadership Center.

But, it’s no surprise that floating above, throughout the entire night, shining towards us all, was a sparkling, colorful, glowing…

BUTTERFLY.
May we all help each other grow wings, fire it up and fly.
