JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 50 :: one step forward

20 Feb
{pushing joy}

It hit me today. I’ve spent my entire life pushing joy. Pushing it around in front of me. All the diagnoses, the doctors, and the surgeries. They have all been me pushing me forward, to find joy.

And I think that’s the payoff of persistence. Which I am, if nothing else.

I also realized something else today. Sometimes we don’t know where it’s all going — or what we are pushing toward. But it’s important to keep going.

Even when it feels like you can’t keep going, you can. Pick yourself up and take just one step forward. 

Keep pushing joy.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 36 :: happy choosing

5 Feb
{choices}

Joy has me thinking about choices. And happiness. And the difference between joy and happy? Happy and joy?

Either way, I do know this: Joy is a game of choice.  

What we think we become. And what we choose we create. There really are so many different choices we can make… and sometimes we take a different path but arrive at the same place, same conclusion, same difference.

Joy is teaching me that it really comes down to a choice. 
We can choose to be happy.
We can choose to be sad.
We can choose to think happy thoughts while we are sad.
It really is a choice.

Happy choosing.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 13 :: oh, joy the verb?

13 Jan
{curious}

As the year moves forward and my promise to focus on JOY takes hold… I am wondering when joy is more of a verb and an action. It feels like such an emotional feeling sort of state of being… that the action part of joy isn’t quite clear to me. 

I know Joy is choice. But “finding joy” seems like a scavenger hunt (one that starts on the inside of course!). And maybe that is the action verb part after all.

Oh, joy!

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 196 :: hello chitown

7 Aug

Finding kindness in the everyday.

Yesterday I had my favorite coffee:


Tonight I had my NEW favorite wine:

Both are just a reminder of what I often times forget — find JOY in the everyday. Whether it is coffee with a friend or a glass of wine with a co-worker.

Life is about joy people.
Remember that.
With kindness.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie
