JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 55 :: blooming

25 Feb
{defrost}

The snow has melted. And my little flowers outside my office window seemed to have survived the storm. They are brighter green today than they have been all week. It has me thinking of spring, and blossoms and the power of blooming. 

But I know that the petals are really just the expression of all the work that happens before the flower blooms. The struggle in the soil, the surviving of the winter storms, the seeds that were planted so long ago. Blooming always starts on the inside, deep beneath the surface.

I have a feeling that is where JOY comes from too.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 48 :: snow day

18 Feb
{joy}

We woke up to snow this morning. A slight dusting across the land leaving everything white capped and wintery. Even the flowers that are poking up out the ground outside my window.

They have delicate little yellow bulbs waiting to open. I worried about them today. But the truth is, Mother Nature knows best.

And those little delicate flowers probably know exactly what to do to survive a February snow and when to do it. Much like I think we all do. We all know what to do deep down in our heart of hearts. There is always that truth.  The heart truth.   

So I will keep watching those flowers out my window. And hope the sun will come out tomorrow to warm them back up.

And… In my heart, I already know it will.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 47 :: heart joy

17 Feb
{heart based life}

I was thinking a lot about heart space today. And living from a shiny place in the center of my heart. Then I heard these words:

“There is no greater jewel than the spark in your heart.”  

And, I do love sparkly things!
They bring me joy. Here’s to the joy in your heart.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 32 :: clear joy

1 Feb
{heart}

In my nightly quest to watch fluffy, lighthearted and feel-good TV before I go to bed I find myself in the Hart of Dixie. I can’t handle horror movies and thrillers leave me too anxious to sleep, so fluffy romantic comedies are the only ones that make the grade.

Just like I can’t stand to watch horror movies, Justin can’t stand to watch Hart of Dixie. He walks into the room with a deep sigh of frustration and says, “You’re watching that again?”

Shakespeare would also be disappointed, but for me, it’s pure fluff and fun. And in some odd way, it brings me joy.

The other night, after watching my fill of Dixie I went to sleep and had a dream. In it, my mother came to me and whispered some advice in my ear. She said, “The clearest one wins.”

I’ve been thinking about that statement for days now. And every day it brings me more insight. It was a message from the heart.

In this year of Joy, I’m learning that one person’s joy may not be shared by another. And maybe that’s the point.

Afterall, the clearest one wins.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 267 :: renew

23 Sep

Haircut Day.

Today was haircut day! And it feels like the kindest (intentional) act of the week for me. So fresh. So new. So good!

Why does a new haircut feel so good? And kind? I’m not entirely sure, but I know this: it’s all in the heart.

Catching kindness?

More tomorrow….

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 172 :: intentional acts of kindness

13 Jul

Vets.

I just returned from the emergency after hours veterinary clinic. Not with either of my dogs, but with my dear friend’s cat.

As I sat at the clinic waiting to find out the kitties results (he ended up being fine by the way!) I thought about Intentional Acts of Kindness. And how easy it was for me to say yes to help a friend.

And that brings me to this.
Kindness is easy.
When it comes from the heart.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 40 :: love by the mooooooon

10 Feb

So big. 

The moon. It’s so beautiful tonight. While we missed the hullabaloo over the comet and the eclipse and probably something else… we did see the big, fat, amazing, take up the entire sky MOON tonight!

She’s a snow moon. I love this shot Justin captured. AKA: The Death Star:

And, then there is this one. All etheric and cloudy and romantic.
(Also a Justin pic!)

Then, there’s the one I captured. It’s all sorts of BLURRY and bad. But I’m being KIND this year, so I took a second look to see if I could see anything beautiful. And you know what I found?

A heart. It’s there…. you just have to LOOK for it.

And, isn’t that the truth. It may be the first real lesson in this year of Intentional Acts of Kindness that is coming my way. What we LOOK for, we FIND.

Happy Looking!

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 26 :: birthday

26 Jan

Kindness.

I am in awe. Mostly at the kindness that birthdays bring in out in everyone I know. I am so thankful and grateful for the text messages, facebook posts, calls, messages, and all the ways that I have been reached today. And touched.

It is the gift of being seen and remembered. Is there anything better?

It reminds me in this year of Intentional Acts of Kindness that gifts and kindness come in many forms (money, love, care, listening, seeing, honoring). Not all are seen or heard but all are felt, deeply, with the heart.

Here’s to another trip around the sun. Thank you for being here with me. I feel you. I see you. I hope you know how much you mean to me.
More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

P.S.  Kindness Challenge #3: Patience

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 265 :: heart signs

27 Sep

Day 265: Listen.

I see hearts everywhere. Like signs. In flowers. On sidewalks. In the shape of rocks, trees, plants, clouds, cars, food…

But now.. I have seen it in the chip of my fingernail polish.

A chip off the old heart. And just another sign to add more love to my life, my body, my soul….it’s a sign at the tip of my fingers from the bottom of my heart.

Yoga done.
Bring on Wednesday. A heartfelt Wednesday.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 246 :: the heart of the matter

9 Sep

Day 246: Home.

And just like that….I am home.

Ironically, I spotted another heart today: this one is pretty obvious!

I have to say, I respect and admire the branding and “heart” put into everything about the Southwest Airlines experience. Todays’ flight was smooth, the passengers were friendly (and all seemed happy even the little babies being walked up and down the ailse).

But, this I know for sure: the heart of every brand is its people. So thank you SWA for getting me home. Safely and smoothly. With a FREE checked bag!

That’s enough to make me want to go to bed and rest this weary little traveling head. But first… I must do yoga.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie
