JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 186 :: fireworks

4 Jul
{joyful, fun and free}

As the fireworks burst outside my window I am popping with joy. How joyful it is to be free. How joyful it is to have fun. The best combination is fun and free, and free and fun.

Sometimes I think we forgot how to have fun and be free. But a day like today is a good reminder, Independence Day. I spent the day sorting through more stuff. Mostly clothing and shoes, my heart’s desires. I already dropped off six bags at the consignment store and have three more waiting to go.

Not because I don’t love them but because they no longer fit. Most are too small. A few are too big. But mostly, I have a sense that in order to fully walk into a new adventure you have to let go of the old ones.

Believe me, it’s hard for me to do. Clothing whispers to me. My clothing sends surges of memories into every cell of my being — what I wore, what I did,  what I ate, who I met, what happened… and what didn’t happen too. Clothing is a time capsule.

So, to me, it’s like gathering up a bunch of old friends and waving goodbye at port, as they ready to go onto new adventures in places I can only imagine… at the consignment store. And, yet, there is a sense of freedom in that.

It’s a sense of letting go. And letting in the new. It’s a freedom, really. One I’m proud to say I have, the ability to pick up my life and move it to a new place, a different state, a different port. What a beautiful freedom we have in this world.

Many adventures (and I’m sure new clothing) await!
What joy.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

 JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 162 :: the best kind

3 Jul

Tuesday.

The best kind of Tuesdays are those that feel like Saturdays. I’m not sure that’s anywhere near the point or the meaning of Independence Day, but a free Tuesday in the middle of summer does feel like freedom.

And isn’t that what we are all after anyway?

Freedom of speech, opinion, time, resources, hassles. To live without limits, whether placed upon us or self-imposed. The best kind of freedom is the one that we appreciate.

How kind.

Happy Tuesday.
Happy Fourth.
Happy Freedom.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie
