JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 327 :: happy thanksgiving

23 Nov
{stuffing}

I’m feeling stuffed.
With love.
And that’s the best kind of thankful on the night of Thanksgiving. 

What a great way to kick off the holiday season. A season of light and love. Family and friends. Food and flavors. Moments and memories.

Is there a bigger call for kindness?
Happy Thanksgiving.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

As I pack and ready for a plane ride home, I’m thinking of random acts of kindness. Have you done one lately?

So much kindness in the world. It’s good to share.

More tomorrow…

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 312 :: one word

8 Nov
{kindness}

I have often said that words are medicine. I believe that words are indeed medicine. I know this from my own life, and the power that words have given me.

My friend Jenn sent me an email at the height of my divorce disaster. Inside it, she wrote,” I know you will get through this because you are made of steel and sunshine.” Those words were the exact medicine I needed at that exact time.

I still believe in the power of words.  One kind word can change someone’s day — or week — or life.

This Year of Kindness is teaching me to change my words. To use the words of kindness, belief, trust, and faith. The kinder my words, the kinder my life. The kinder my thoughts, the kinder my words. The kinder my beliefs, the kinder my thoughts.

It is a beautiful circle. A powerful medicine.

Don’t believe me?  Just try it on for a moment.
Change your words. I believe it will change your life.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 281 :: positively kind

8 Oct

Rise up.

If there’s one thing that being under the weather gives me, it’s this: perspective.
Which is why I picked this quote as I nursed my little head cold today.

We rise by lifting others.
We also rise by lifting ourselves too. Because what goes around comes around as trite as that sounds.

Kindness has a boomerang effect. And, as I am learning, sharing the power of kindness starts with taking care of ourselves.

Lovemore,
Jamie

Free Fun.

Who doesn’t love FREE? I love free fun. Even more than that, I love doing things that cost nothing but are priceless – usually, creating memories with friends or family.

Ironically, in this year of Kindness, the “Big K” is teaching me that FUN is kind.

Especially when we are kind to others.
Most especially when we are kind to ourselves.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 276 :: keeping it together 

3 Oct

From The Kindness Diaries.

Oh, kindness. Thank you for teaching me so much this year, and tonight for teaching me this: Good friends make all the difference. 

Here’s to keeping the love, support, and laughter of friends together.
That’s kindness in my diary.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 275 :: free falling 

2 Oct

Choosing Kindness.

There are days when I feel like I have all the answers. And then, there are days, like today, when I feel that I know nothing at all. In this year of intentional acts of kindness, I am reminded that sometimes we don’t have the answers or control.

But we always have a choice.

And there is a moment that occurs, in the middle of chaos, in the middle of a broken heart, in the middle of loss and losing where all we have left is a choice. Our choice.

Kindness has taught me this:
That choice is our responsibility — it’s how we react and respond. The more space we build between that moment of terror, and how we answer the call, is the place where we find peace in our hearts.

And kindness.

While our hearts reel and our minds cope with the reality of the world we live in today, I do know this, in the words that Tom Petty gave us: the waiting is the hardest part.  

The waiting is the hardest part
Every day you see one more card
You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
The waiting is the hardest part

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 273 :: a mission of love

30 Sep

Kindness.

Oh, October! You are almost here… and I think I’m “getting it” now. October is the “aha” month. The month when things begin to make sense. And, in this year of making a 365-day promise of intentional acts of KINDNESS I am reminded of the most powerful lesson of all – LOVE.

My promise this year is wrapping itself all the way back around and touching my heart with the most original lesson of all – LOVE.

My mission in this life is love. Thus, it seems, all my lessons are about love too. They come in different forms of course. And this year, it seems, love wants to remind me to have fun -to play- and to tap into my passion.

Oh, October, I know you have more waiting for me. Until then (tomorrow it all begins) I will remember to walk with love on the soles of my shoes – and a playful heart.

More tomorrow….

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 253 :: you’ve got a friend

10 Sep

Whewwww.

As of this moment, it seems that most of my friends are safe in Florida from Hurricane Irma. At least that is what Facebook is reporting. I am wondering what we did before FB and the internet and email to stay connected in times of disaster? Heck, I’m even wondering how we ever drove ten hours through the desert of Nevada without a cell phone?

But we did.

I prefer the technology of today. It’s nice to know you’ve got a friend. Speaking of friends, I met a new one last night. He is a camel. A very interesting creature that hails from the other side of the world.

Ironically, from a place where all these hurricanes originate from too.
You can see more here

This reminds me of something I know to be the truth: we are all connected. Even if half a world away. We share the same air. The same water. The same systems that swirl around and around in the atmosphere.

That, if nothing else, seems to be a reason to be kind.
To each other.
And our world.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 205 :: learning kindness

16 Aug

Reflection.

It’s been a year so far. Kindness has been a good teacher, a constant reminder, a little whisper in my ear this year.

If Kindness were a goddess, She has been telling me many things.

Things like:

  • Pay attention
  • Ignore that which isn’t kind
  • Be kind to those who are not
  • Expect the best of people
  • Count everything
  • Everything counts
  • Timing is everything
  • Everything is not attached to Time
  • Kindness is a great responsibility
  • If you can’t be kind, you can’t be great
  • Being kind to ourselves is our greatest responsibility

So much kindness…
So many more lessons to come.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie
