JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 163 :: the joy of life

11 Jun
{lRings of life}

My hands tell so many stories. I have the garnet heart ring of Mama Sling that I wear every day. It tells the story of a mother who was more of an angel than a human being, more a guide than a guardian, more loved and mysterious than ever with each passing year.

I have a diamond wedding ring that Justin gave me in a surprise, down on one knew adventure that led to a surprise up in the mountains wedding. He found the ring on the east coast and held onto it for four years before he proposed on the west coast. We got married in the Rocky Mountains and the memories still make my heart bounce and me feel more than a mile high.

And, now, I have a beautiful opal ring. It’s from Australia. The only place on earth that celebrates my birthday with fireworks in the middle of winter. I was born on Australia Day, January 26th. It is winter in the northern hemisphere, but it is summer on my birthday down under. So it seems, it is only filling that I have a ring that dances with the fire of opals on my hand.

I wear it with such joy. It was Nancy’s. And, while we said goodbye to her this weekend with an official ceremony, the memories still reverberate in my heart and now on my hand.

We leave very little behind in this life. The memories are the most treasured. But, sometimes, a small token of joy can last another lifetime. If we choose to receive it.


More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 5 :: kindness challenge

5 Jan

Respect.

I’ve been thinking a lot about kindness – the intentional kind. I keep hearing the word RESPECT. It seems they go hand-in-hand. I’m also remembering something I know — deeply know and understand — words are free. And maybe the most powerful form of respect.

So… with that thought, tonight, I’m throwing out an Intentional Acts of Kindness Challenge!

Challenge #1:  Practice Respect: 
If you choose to accept this challenge, try one of the following acts:
– admire someone with kind words
– point out a particular and appreciated detail with kind words 
– use thoughtful words to compliment someone on an achievement

I will be playing along… and I would love to hear how it goes for you too. 😉
Cheers, kind soul.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – YOGA DAY 1 :: a new kind of year

1 Jan

Day 1: Being Kind.

And here we go!  It’s a New Year. And with that comes a new promise. So… here we are:  2017 will be my Intentional Acts of Kindness Promise. It’s kind of like Random of Acts of Kindness but with more purpose.


After last year’s “Year of Yoga” and learning the depth of kindness, AND witnessing all the events of the world around me, I am dedicating 2017 to Kindness. I think we all need it, and I have a few people to thank.

1. Diane: yes, you! Diane could be my mother or grandmother. She is older but WISER in so many ways. Diane writes to me almost every day sharing what she read on my blog and what that means in her life. She has been reminding me of the power of 4-letter words for a few years now. Her best 4-letter word is, you guessed it, “KIND” and she kindly reminds me of this in her daily emails. Diane – this year is dedicated to you!

2. Amy: my dear friend Amy has been inspiring me with her message of kindness for years now. She is a teacher of joy and kindness. She is a high vibrational friend, one who lives from the heart. Check her out here. Amy – yes, this is also inspired by you too!

3. Feng Shui! I have spent the last three days “fenging” our space if you will. Furniture has moved, the energy is changing, the intentions are in place. Broken items have been thrown out, burnt out light bulbs have been replaced, and most important — intentions have been made. And now I begin 2017 with intentions in my heart.

So here we are again at Day One.
2017 will be a year of Intentional Acts of Kindness. I have no idea where it will take me. I have no idea what will happen, but my intention is to be kind, to you, to me, to those who present themselves in need. Kindness is not just a matter of being nice or patient, sometimes it is listening, sometimes it’s knowing when to say no, sometimes it’s an act of courage, sometimes it is just a shared moment.

Whatever Kindness has in store… I’m about to find out.
What does KINDNESS mean to you?

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

{Happy 2017}

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 343 :: working on it

8 Dec

Day 343: Progress.

If yoga has taught me anything this year… it is this:

We are always a work in progress. And now, almost a year into this promise I can do things I couldn’t at the beginning of the year. Crow. Jumping forward on my mat. Breathing deeper. Trying to be calm.

Here’s to progress!
Namaste, Progress. Namaste.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 195 :: home sweet home

20 Jul

Day 195: Getting Real.

I am home. Home sweet home.

Back in the swing of things. And back to my home practice of yoga. Which is different than my travel yoga practice… and a bit more deliberate. Still, I carry on.

Back in the saddle again!

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie
