JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 173 :: stand in your truth

22 Jun
{invite joy}

I’ve been thinking a lot of joy lately, this being a halfway mark of the year (already!). Joy is teaching me so many wise lessons.

One of clarity: The clearest one wins.
One of ease: Rainbow slide, cloud landing.
One of strength: Standing in your truth. 

They all invite more joy into your life. And, just like the secret of licking a Tootsie Pop, I am finding out how many licks it takes to get to the center of my Joy.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 172 :: chasing joy

21 Jun
{feel it}

Be still. This is what joy is telling me today. It is within the stillness that we find our joy. Just like seeking the wind it is easier to find joy when you sit still. Joy is whispering in my ear to enjoy the moment, to feel the moment, and to feel the wind at my back.

Chasing joy is like chasing the wind, you must be still to feel it.
More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 170 :: the joy of rest

20 Jun
{resting}

Sometimes the best joy is the resting kind. I am reminded of that tonight as I take a NyQuil and head to bed, early, with a few sniffles and stuffy nose.

This year is teaching me that the recipe for joy can be quite simple and easy. Even if it’s just a good night’s sleep.

Here’s to rest. May you get some too!
More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 170 :: laughter in your joy

19 Jun
{enjoy}

Find a little laughter in your joy

We just landed. Vacation over. There is nothing worse than the realization that vacation is over. Okay, maybe there are worse situations, but in the category of joy, this one is a buzzkill.

The saving grace of our flight home was the in-flight entertainment TV screens. Thank you Jet Blue. And TSA Pre-Check, too! Thank you Brent, the best travel agent I have ever used. And also, the only travel agent I have ever used. I didn’t know they still existed, travel agents. Extinct from the invasion of the internet booking sites, I thought they were a lost breed. It turns out they are alive and well… and amazing at their jobs too.

So tonight, dear Joy, thank you for taking care of us. From breezing through airport security lines to giggles and laughter on the plane.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 168 :: fireside joy

17 Jun
{cheers}

We find ourselves in New Hampshire. From Massachusetts to Maine to New Hampshire. Three states in three days. It’s already been an adventure to remember.

Joy has me reflecting on the importance of gatherings. Brian said it best this weekend — “Life is about showing up.”  I think joy might be too. There is joy in showing up in your life and in the life of others too.

Tonight as we sat around the fire on a warm summer night and shared stories and photos and heartfelt memories I saw a new light. Not the light of cell phones reflecting on faces but the light of a fireplace. It is a primal connection, that of flame and fire and the connection we share when we gather together — and show up.

Here’s to showing up. For your life and your joy.
Cheers!

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 167 :: dance with joy

16 Jun
{dance, dance, dance}

Tonight we celebrate the marriage of Andy and Courtney. It’s been a day of blood, sweat and tears.

The blood is for family and the beauty of reunion. The hugs the stories the memories all wrapped into a moment that will become more folklore for generations to come.

The sweat is from the hot Maine summer sun beating down on us as we awaited the lovely couple’s entrance and nuptials while fanning our faces with the program. It was a blessing that the sky was blue and the sun was out. It was a perfect day for the perfect couple with all the heat that comes with it.

And then there were the tears. From the moment the bride came into view, to the heartfelt vows shared, to remembering those who couldn’t be with us on this very important day, to the speeches, the toasts, and the first dance.

And then… there was the dancing. From littles to bigs, from young to old, there was the shared vibration of music, love and laughter.

It was a good reminder to live, love, laugh and dance.

There is joy in dancing. On any day. At any age. But especially at weddings.

May joy be with you.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 166 :: joy is getting together

15 Jun
{again and again}

We have gathered. We have eaten. We have driven the coast, shopped at outlets, and seen the sights. We have gathered. We have hugged. We are here in Maine for a beloved wedding and I am thinking about the importance of “unions” and “reunions.”

Uniting. Reuniting. That is the process of a wedding, of family gathering and regathering. There is so much hope, love, memories, laughter and, love in the air. And, I think this is pure joy emanating from the love we all have for the bride and groom.


 

It reminds me that joy is found in getting together, again and again, and again.
Shared moments. New memories. Old stories. New beginnings.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

13 Jun

If time flies why can’t joy?

Tomorrow we head to Maine and then on to a wedding and family gathering. It all has me thinking about the joy that comes with family and friends and feasts. It is the connection, really. The joy of connection.

It all reminds me that joy flies on the wings of love.


 

Here’s to joy connections.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 164 :: the joy of each moment

12 Jun
{savor}

I’m winding down my day and sitting in bed writing my blog post. One of the best benefits of writing this daily blog is carving out time to reflect and savor each day. This is the time that I allow myself to review, rewind and relax into what was good, what was bad, and what is now behind me.

I love the word savor. SAVOR! It’s so saucy and so simple at the same time.


So what could be more joyful than taking the time to savor the day?

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie
