JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 191 :: trust moves

10 Jul

{trust}  

The air conditioner is broken, it’s too hot to cook, and it’s late. So we ordered Chinese food. I thought my fortune cookie said it best:

It’s time to get moving. Your spirits will lift accordingly.   

My fortune cookie knows of these Trust Moves. While we will be moving, physically, soon this year has me thinking about the trust moves it takes to change, adapt, flex and stay agile. It’s so easy to get set in our ways and cling to our things.

Ironically, we never seem to do that. Change is our middle name. So a little house move will be easy but I think my fortune cookie may know something I do not: your spirits will lift accordingly.

Sometimes that’s all we need in life, is a little change, to get moving. And since I asked for TRUST this year, I am trusting the process and excited to see what’s on the other side! We will know soon…

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 345 :: christmas kindness

12 Dec
{sharing}

Today I continue the month of Christmas Kindness!

I lost my wallet this weekend. Somewhere in Seattle.

I have no idea where. I know when I last saw it and when I had it in my hands. But when I went to pay for my Chinese food, after eating a full meal in a sit-down restaurant, just after they delivered the fortune cookie, I opened up my purse and there was NO wallet.

I thought I left it in my doctor’s office, because it was the last time I had my wallet. The office was closed so I was told to wait until Monday for them to check the office.

Then I thought maybe I lost it in my car, like it had fallen out somewhere. It wasn’t anywhere to be found.

Sunday morning I woke up to fraudulent charges on one of my credit cards — at a 7 Eleven of all places! It was enough to confirm what I was afraid of… the wallet was stolen. Or swiped. Or picked up somewhere on my path that day.

After canceling all my bank cards and researching how to get a replacement driver’s license and trying to take account of all that was actually in my wallet (gift cards, cash, store rewards cards) I realized something….

Maybe the person that found/swiped/picked up or somehow discovered my wallet needed it more than I did.  Maybe they needed that gift card to JC Penny’s for a Christmas gift. Maybe they needed that wad of Canadian dollars for a trip across the border. Maybe it made their day or changed their life.

Luckily, I am able to replace everything in the wallet with the same or something better.

So maybe… just maybe… it landed exactly where it needed to be with who needed it most. And maybe, seeing it all from that point of view is a way of sharing the holiday spirit.

Maybe, that is Christmas Kindness. As my fortune cookie said, “The gift is in the thought.”

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 243 :: keeping promises

31 Aug

Fortune Telling.

I had a wonderful Chinese food dinner tonight with my official Mother-In-Law – how fun is that? And fortunate too in so many ways.

My fortune cookie actually said this when I cracked it open: “Keep the promises that you make.”

I mean, really?? How ironic is that? Since that is basically what I do best… promises. I show up every night here on this blog, keeping my promise to myself and to you, reading this on whatever night you may find me.

I am also keeping another promise to myself this year in a year of kindness — a 30-day promise! I will tell you more about it tomorrow. Promise.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie
