JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 38 :: the joy of dreaming

9 Feb
{dream on}

As this year takes off I am thinking about dreams. Where dreams come from and how they find us. And the joy that comes from making our dreams come true.

I have also been thinking about the inspiration I find in words. I believe that words are medicine. Truly medicine. Words hold a vibration. And that vibration carries through our soul.

So this year, as I think about JOY… creating joy and sharing joy…I have decided to share more words. Here is tonight’s addition: 

Dreams are the gift of our nights and the adventure of our days.

Here’s to your dreams and your joy!
More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 34 :: the joy of pats

3 Feb
{twas the night before}

‘Twas the night before the Super Bowl and all through the house, not a creature was stirring not even a Pats fan. And when I say Pats fan, I mean Justin. He is as giddy as a little boy on Christmas morning. In a few hours, Justin will board a plane for Minneapolis for a date with destiny. Thanks to a few cousins and some lucky last minute tickets.

The funny thing is, he has been waiting his entire life for this day. His favorite team and the Super Bowl all culminating into one big game in a brand, grand new stadium. It’s everything the little boy in him always dreamed of — especially when the Patriots were terrible. Like…. really terrible. For years. Decades. Yet, he has remained strong and steadfast. Always a believer.

It’s easy to forget those years now… the New England Patriots are a dynasty in the making. If not already a legend and a legacy. But there were days when the team was only this special in the hearts of little boys and a few grown men.

One of those little boys who is now a grown man, will be in a seat at the stadium that Minneapolis built. Rooting for his team. From the sidelines. Just like he always has… with passion in his soul and hope in his heart.

And that reminds me…this is what JOY is made of.

What a joy to see someone’s dream come true.
Priceless, really.

More tomorrow… (Go Pats!!)

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 359 :: merry christmas

25 Dec
{miracles}

Happy holidays. Merry Christmas. And good tidings.

Today, we awoke to a little Christmas miracle. A blanket of snow. It was pristine and beautiful — and a surprise! Which reminds me of the power of miracles.  

Last night at dinner we tracked Santa’s sleigh with an online App. We also discussed the weather and all wished to wake up to a white Christmas. We then watched Santa make stops in Bolivia and Costa Rice, Canada, the USA, and Mexico all on a phone held in our little hands while sitting at the dinner table (what a miracle!).

Then, this morning I awoke to Jaynane singing Christmas music from the living room and announcing, “It’s a White Christmas!”

I thought she was referring to the song. And, of course, the Christmas music wafting into our room. As I stumbled out into the living room in my pajamas she turned on the porch lights to show off the blanket of snow outside. It was a Christmas miracle – a snowclad world sparking outside.

We dreamt about it. We talked about it. And then we woke up to it. It may seem small but it was a magical way to greet the day. And it reminds me that Miracles can come in all forms.

Last I checked, Santa delivered 7,281,439,471 gifts around the world on this Christmas holiday. How kind of him. What a feat! A true miracle if you ask me.

Maybe the biggest miracle of all is remembering to believe.
In the power of loving each other.
Of being kind to those in our lives all year long.
And recognizing the magic in our everyday experiences.
Even when it’s just surprise snowflakes out the window.

That may be the kindest Christmas gift of all.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 350 :: christmas kindness

17 Dec
{dreams}

Today I continue the month of Christmas Kindness!

It’s the fourth day in my pajamas. Winter colds are so cozy.  The only progress I have made in these last four days is with the Gilmore Girls on Netflix.

And with dreaming.

There are so many dreams that happen when you stay in your PJ’s for four days straight. I love what I learn in my dreams, and what they tell me, reveal to me, share with me and inspire me.

It all has me thinking about the rest and reset button.  One step back and two steps forward.

Dreams are kind.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 290 :: kind slowness

17 Oct

Oh, Internet. 

It’s day three of my internet being on strike. The good news is that the technician appointment is tomorrow and a new router will be installed. The bad news is that the interwebs are slow. I mean s …l …o …w.


So tonight’s post will be short as I share something that I read earlier today: it reminds me to SLOW down, be calm and enjoy the ride.

“Remember that everything that will occur in your life will occur in its own time. Quelling your urge to rush will enable you to witness yourself learning, changing, and becoming stronger. There is so much to see and do in between the events and processes that we deem definitive. If you are patient enough to take pleasure in your existence’s unfolding, the journey from one pinnacle to the next will seem to take no time at all.” – madisyn taylor

That reminds me …kindness is best absorbed at a slow pace.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

 JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 181 :: beauty rest

22 Jul

Kindness.

I’m doing a kind thing tonight… going to sleep. It seems so simple but it hasn’t been a very good two nights so far in Chicago sleep time.

I’m a bit time-zoned and haven’t been able to fall asleep… so tonight I am counting sheep, and my dreams, and looking forward to waking up to sunny Chicagoland tomorrow.

Afterall, you have to sleep to dream.
Night. Night. Kindness.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 168 :: believing in kindness

9 Jul

Wonderment.

We just left Wonder Woman, the movie. The movie that is grossing more than Deadpool did. The movie that has women and little girls talking. The movie that was hyped to be amazing.

Not everyone I saw the movie with loved it. But, I was inspired. Not by the woman power thing (although that was great) and not by the super power thing (although entertaining) and not even by the costume thing (okay, I admit, I LOVED her boots!).

No, I was inspired by something else…. belief.


It was a theme that I felt running throughout the movie. Believing in what you are called to do. Believing in what you think is right. Believing in others. Believing in yourself.

At one point in the movie, my little niece leaned over and said, “She’s awesome” as Wonder Woman staved off bullets and guns and raced to save the villagers. As the scene continued where Wonder Woman was the only one brave enough to walk through a storm of firing shots and use her shield to defend and conquer, because she knew it was the right thing to do  –  that same niece learned over and said, “Okay, she’s really awesome!”

If a movie can do that, capture the attention of little girl even for a moment, even for a spark of admiration of strength and character and belief in oneself, then I think that’s pretty wonderful.

And maybe that’s what this movie hoopla is really about. Suspending time for just a moment to believe. Even if it is in a far-fetched CGI tale of Amazonian women warriors who are really cartoons and do only what superheroes can do in a movie.

But isn’t that what movies are supposed to do?

For just those few moments, I was inspired to believe. In love and kindness and all things that are right in this world.

(…and, of course, those boots!)

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

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 68 :: creating more kindness

12 Mar

New life.

Yesterday, while ducking inside a retail store during the rainy parade, I spotted this chair:

It’s an old hair stylist chair, hair dryer and all!

Except this chair has been turned into a lamp. A light!

The whole thing reminds me of my grandmother. The hours spent having our hair rolled up in curlers and permed to kinky, curly success.

It also reminded me of something I love. New life! I love it when old things take on new forms. Like a hair dryer chair that is now a book reading chair. Or a sit while you wait for someone to try on clothing chair. Either way, it’s new life.

And I think that’s kind.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie
