JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 191 :: rounds of joy

10 Jul
{underwear}

I was sent this Ted Talk today, which is appropriate in my year of JOY:  Where joy hides and how to find it. The talk is by Ingrid Fetell Lee and explores my favorite topic of this year… you guessed it, joy.

You should watch this insightful study on joy. It covers everything from color (the more colorful an office space, the more alert, friendlier they make the people in them compared to a drab space). She also posits that color is a sign of life and energy. And round objects are an important signifier of joy. As Ingrid says, curves set us at ease. Which brings me to this: new underwear.

I have new underwear for my curves. And nothing could be more joyful than pretty, new underwear.

It turns out that joy is in the little things. And the big, round, colorful ones too.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY :: 101 flavors of joy

10 Apr
{choosing}

I was thinking about ice cream today. And chocolate. And chocolate ice cream. What joy!

The best part of ice cream is choosing your flavor. Which brings me back to joy. Just like your favorite color, shouldn’t it be just as easy to choose your flavor of joy?

Maybe it’s skiing, or dancing, or writing, or drawing or listening or sleeping (why not?) — point is… Joy should be your choice, your flavor, your color.

So what’s your flavor?

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 303 :: my kind of fall

30 Oct
{falling}

Ah, fall. What a kind season, half spring, half summer, almost winter. You’re like the best of all seasons. Especially on days like today. Yellow leaves, blue sky, red trees and green grass. It’s hard to imagine a more beautiful backdrop to a Fall day.

Today, Kindness was a mixture of colors.
Naturally.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 199 :: what will happen next?

24 Jul

Day 199: Halfway.

We are halfway through the year. Just over the hump. Slightly on the downhill side. I’m starting to connect the dots of where this promise is taking me. How about you?

What have you noticed so far?
What is happening in your world?
What is unfolding in new ways for you?
Any surprises?
Anything new?
Anything old?

From here on out through the rest of year I begin to form my next promise. October is when it usually comes together, during the harvest, the time when everything starts to make sense.

We are not there yet, but I am starting to see a few pops of color. Starting to see the outline of what’s to come. What I am learning? What is going to unfold next?

Much like tonight’s sunset.


It’s beautiful and yet still mysterious. The colors are just popping, keeping my attention while I watch to see what will happen next.

Doing yoga every damn day has been a trip so far. One that has taken a different turn than I expected. I am not thinner (darn). I am slightly stronger (good). I am not calmer (bummer). But I am more deeply aware (interesting).

The year will move us all forward, with a few surprises I’m sure.
And just like the sunset I’m wondering…
What will happen next?

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 41 :: coloring my world

10 Feb

Day 41. Take Ten.

It’s amazing what just 10 minutes of yoga can do for my body. Sometimes it’s so relaxing and others make me hurt in ways I don’t expect. Like a few shoulder openers I tried tonight.

It’s also amazing what 10 minutes of releasing and letting my mind wonder can do… like coloring in my new color book. Just 10 minutes. So simple. But so peacefully engaging.

What can you do with 10 minutes?

More tomorrow. 
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 308 :: blissful leafs a leaving

8 Nov

Today’s bliss…a heart.

Really, it was a leaf.

But in the twilight of night, sitting on its side with a little illumination from the street lamps… it looks like a heart.

And it seems fitting, sitting right there on the sidewalk, marking the spot I will pass in the morning with my roller bag suitcase and computer briefcase in tow.  Another adventure beings. Chicago, here I come….

…Heart and all.

More tomorrow. 
Lovemore,
Jamie
