Happy, happy, joy, joy!

We have candy! Happy Halloween. 

We didn’t have any trick or treaters show up but we do have a bucket full of candy. So tonight, joy is eating it while we watch Halloween inspired movies.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 280 joy is double duty

15 Oct


{Dunkin’} 

Ah, Monday! You surprised me again this week. Just when I think all is well and ready to go I ended up driving through the Dunkin’ Donuts drive-through twice. I blame joy. That’s right, JOY. 

The line was very long this morning as I waited my turn to order at the drive-through. When I finally made it up to the speaker system the attendant asked if I wanted to donate to JOY. Of course, I said yes, then ordered my chai tea and pumpkin donut. When I pulled up to the window I was so overjoyed to sign my name on a little piece of JOY paper proclaiming to the world that I had given to the Joy Foundation that I drove away. Without my tea or donut.  

I made it three feet forward when I realized I had no tea in my hands but it was too late. The very long line of cars pulled forward automatically. So I was forced to line up again at the end of the line. What a way to start a Monday morning. When I finally made it back up to the window the attendant had a good laugh and my tea waiting for me too.

Apparently, joy is so wonderful, sometimes, we have to do it twice!

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 274 :: joy is a bubble bath

9 Oct


{relaxation}


Sometimes you just need a good old fashioned bubble bath to relax into joy. Tonight, that was just the ticket! And my first bubble bath in our new place. A christening of sorts. 

Joy is teaching me that the small moments are just as big as the big ones. Even in the form of tiny bubbles. 

More tomorrow… Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 57 :: sunshine & joy

27 Feb
{breakthrough)

Sometimes the breakthrough comes after the break… and today, the sun broke through the clouds outside my window. If only for a moment.

It had me thinking about the joy of spring. And how I cannot wait to experience more of it.

My heart is calling for spring. And our world is certainly calling for more joy. May they both sprout forth.  

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 52 :: expanding the good

22 Feb
{true joy}

I was thinking about the good things today. And then I thought about joy. And then I thought…Maybe joy is just starting where you are and expanding the good from there.

We all have to begin somewhere.

Good.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 46 :: feeling joyful

16 Feb
{snuggles}

It’s been a week. But tonight I am feeling joy. Joyful really with two pups at my side snuggling in while I type. And it has me thinking about the moments in life when joy persists. When it seeps into our soul and stands out in a larger than life sort of way.

Tonight I heard a little voice in my head whisper, “Be Alive! While you are living!” Like a little reminder from beyond.  It sounded a lot like my mother’s voice. And it’s just the sort of sage advice she would tell me.

So tonight, I’m thinking about being alive. 

It’s even more present with Pup these days. Today he walked around the lawn pulling me at the end of his leash with stubborn pride. As if to say, “See, Lady, I’m still in charge around here.”

And he most definitely is.

But he’s also teaching me that joy comes in many forms. Sometimes it’s the chase of a ball and the bark at a squirrel. Other days, it’s the sheer determination to go where you want to go when you want to go there.

And that is the kind of everyday joy that this boy is showing us. To truly be alive while you are living. It’s the fine print of life. And if you think about it, there is nothing more joyful.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 113 :: on kindness and goals

26 Apr

Stepping back.

A theme for me this week is stepping back. Stepping back to move forward.

It’s kind of ironic for me, someone who likes to PUSH PUSH PUSH to get to the finish line. Stepping back doesn’t always feel good. It feels like wasted energy. It feels like giving up. It feels so incredibly ssssssslllllloooooooowwwww.

And yet, I’m learning, it can be so fast.

Today, I practiced stepping back. For a brief second. A millisecond. And what I found was this:

  • I relaxed
  • The world didn’t stop
  • I breathed
  • I had more energy to push forward

Aha! And there’s the golden nugget. More energy.
To move forward.

May you move forward with kindness.
And energy.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

{Forward?}

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 107 :: blanking kindness

20 Apr

Writing the future.

I’m reading a new book – or, rather listening to one on Audible. It’s called The Three Laws of Performance.

You can listen to an audio sample here.

In it, a concept is shared called, “blanking the canvas.” And I like it. It’s all about needing to wipe the slate clean in order to create a new future. Or, possibly better said, in order to create a new future you need to wipe out the past – or at least come to terms with it, releasing yourself from it.

By doing this, you create space. Space to write a new future.

And that has me thinking about my promise of kindness. Maybe, just maybe, to create a future of kindness we have to come to terms with the unkindness of the past.

And maybe, by being honest about the past, forgiving it, settling it, moving on from it, we can all move into a future written on the pages of kindness.

Here’s to writing the future.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie
