JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 113 :: the joy of loudness

22 Apr
{make some noise}

I was around many children this week during my travels and there is one thing that sticks out in my mind. They are loud with their joy.

And shouldn’t joy be loud?

I suppose there is a place for quiet joy, gentle revelry, and silent excitement. But the best part of joy should be big and bold and sometimes, very, very loud.   

So go out there and be loud with your joy. If you don’t… who else will?

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 104 :: joy of chocolate

13 Apr
{Friday Night}

Friday may be the most “looked forward to” day of the week. Add to that a little bit of chocolate and you might have some serious joy on your hands.  At least, that’s how I felt about my Friday night.

Joy should be as simple as adding a little bit of chocolate. And nothing is needed more than joy these days.

I listened to Oprah’s Super Soul Conversation with Don Miguel Ruiz today. One comment he made caught my attention.

      Oprah:  “The world needs…”
      Don Miguel Ruiz:  “More Joy.” 

It may take more than a little bit of chocolate to add a little bit of joy to our lives… but every bit counts.

Happy Friday.  

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 103 :: insta-joy

12 Apr
{chicken}

Tonight I learned that Insta-Joy comes straight out of an Instapot. Otherwise known as how to stave off hunger with a frozen piece of chicken in less than 20 minutes.

Sometimes I marvel at all the tools and technology and advancements we have in our modern life. With so many ways to make life easier, you would think we would also have copious amounts of joy. Or at least an appliance to plug into the wall and turn stressedoutness into joyfulness.


Joy has me thinking…there’s must be an easy way to Insta-Joy.
Maybe this year will show us?

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 82 :: the joy of ice cream

25 Mar
{sunday}

It’s Sunday Night… and what’s better than a sundae? Eating ice cream right out of the tub. Which we did. Why not?!

Joy has me thinking about all the ways to play, and have fun, and experience more. So why not say yes to ice cream — straight from the tub? 

What can you say yes to?

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 76 :: the clarity of joy

19 Mar

{no limits}

I was thinking about joy today — and what came to me was this: joy has no limits.

Who are you without any limits?
And…What kind of joy would live in there?

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

{good is now}

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 51 :: inner peace

21 Feb
{true joy}

I’ve been thinking a lot about tough skin this week. It’s come up a couple times. As a sensitive soul, I have been told more than once in my life that I need to have thicker skin.

But now I know, it’s the sensitive ones that change the world. It’s the sensitive ones that feel so deeply they have to speak up. It’s the sensitive ones that make a difference.

I’ve been watching these young teenagers speak up over the last week. About their truth. About their anger. About what they think needs to change. And it’s so reassuring to me.  

Being sensitive is a direct connection from heart to soul. It’s a filter that doesn’t allow anything else in but the truth to come out. It also requires a sense of inner peace, to be strong enough to feel what’s real.

You don’t need tough skin when you have inner peace.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 50 :: one step forward

20 Feb
{pushing joy}

It hit me today. I’ve spent my entire life pushing joy. Pushing it around in front of me. All the diagnoses, the doctors, and the surgeries. They have all been me pushing me forward, to find joy.

And I think that’s the payoff of persistence. Which I am, if nothing else.

I also realized something else today. Sometimes we don’t know where it’s all going — or what we are pushing toward. But it’s important to keep going.

Even when it feels like you can’t keep going, you can. Pick yourself up and take just one step forward. 

Keep pushing joy.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 44 :: joyful day

15 Feb
{normal}

It was a good day. A normal day. And I’m finding there is much joy in that.

Pup returned to his own lovable, walkable, tail wagging, treat seeking self. Which was a joy to behold. 

Sometimes normal can be so good. So joyous. And so worth the wait.

Joy is teaching me to enjoy the everyday normalness that comes in between the moments we remember the most. Every day can be so out of this world if we let it. 

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 40 :: en-joy

11 Feb
{the journey}

My dear friend Diane wrote me and asked me to look up the definition of “enjoy” — so I did.

en·joy
take delight or pleasure in (an activity or occasion).

I like it. It fits so nicely with my promise this year. And it has me thinking about the importance of enjoying the little moments and the big moments — as well as the crazy, stressful, terrorizing ones too.

What if we could enjoy every moment. Every. Single. Moment. I suppose that would be living in the present. The right now.
This moment.

Justin once told me, a long time ago, that life was just the two of us in a car and the rest was scenery. He meant we would get through it…. and get through so much we have, together.

As we bought a new car yesterday and we drove it off the lot and into our life I thought about that saying again.

“It’s you and me in a car and everything else is just scenery.”

I rather enjoy our new car’s heated leather seats but I know what matters most is the scenery, the person you’re driving with, and enjoying every moment that goes by.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie
