JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 291 :: kind & stormy

18 Oct

Oh, Rain. 

It’s been wet and dark and grey today. The first storm of winter. All rain and wind. In many ways, it feels so comfy and cozy and kind in its own way.

There’s something beautiful about the seasons changing. Leaves falling. Clouds gathering. Rain falling.

And there’s something even more beautiful about watching it, recognizing it, and honoring it. Kindness in many ways is accepting that which is.

Even in the rain.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 290 :: kind slowness

17 Oct

Oh, Internet. 

It’s day three of my internet being on strike. The good news is that the technician appointment is tomorrow and a new router will be installed. The bad news is that the interwebs are slow. I mean s …l …o …w.


So tonight’s post will be short as I share something that I read earlier today: it reminds me to SLOW down, be calm and enjoy the ride.

“Remember that everything that will occur in your life will occur in its own time. Quelling your urge to rush will enable you to witness yourself learning, changing, and becoming stronger. There is so much to see and do in between the events and processes that we deem definitive. If you are patient enough to take pleasure in your existence’s unfolding, the journey from one pinnacle to the next will seem to take no time at all.” – madisyn taylor

That reminds me …kindness is best absorbed at a slow pace.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 289 :: kind thoughts

16 Oct

Choice. 

One thing that has become very clear to me over this year is our power of choice. And choosing. Thoughts. Words. Actions. Reactions. Let alone the whole list of foods, people, things.

Kindness is a choice.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 287 :: courage

14 Oct

kindness.

I think this pretty much sums it up. Sometimes it takes more courage to be kind than we know. Than we feel like we can muster up. And yet, kindness is always the courageous choice.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 286 :: 4-letter word friday

13 Oct

Good.

As in, The Good Place. To round out this week I am in full-on wool socks, sweats, and hoodie sitting on the floor with a blankie watching TV. I can’t think of anything more “good” than laughing on a Friday night.

Laughter is kind.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 285 :: kind underwear

12 Oct

Hello Airport.

I fell in love with a pair of underwear this week. I know, it sounds silly. But is there anything more KIND than a great pair of underwear?

The funny thing is I found them in the airport. After I realized that I forgot to pack underwear for my trip this week. After I had already gone through security. Don’t ask me how I forgot, they just didn’t make it in my bag.

“Where am I going to get underwear?” I thought to myself as I walked to my gate, plotting a trip to get underwear somewhere in Chicago once I landed.

Just then, I walked by a little store and noticed out of the corner of my eye a display of underwear on the back wall.  SCORE!  I turned my roller bag and beelined it into Exofficio.

When the sales clerk asked if she could help me, I smiled. Actually, I grimaced, as I admitted that I forgot to pack underwear.

“Oh, you are going to LOVE our underwear!” She walked me to the back wall and went into more detail than anyone has ever gone into before about the panties on your rear.

She gushed:
“They are so thin you can barely feel them on!
They fit perfectly!
They are odor free and stain free!
You can wash them in the sink and they dry in ten minutes so you don’t have to pack as many pairs when you go on vacation!”

I smiled at her nicely, but in the back of my head, I thought she was tiny bit crazy. I just needed some underpanties pronto and didn’t care if they required dry cleaning at this point. As long as they could get me to Chicago and back I was sold.

I checked out and went on my way. Funny thing is… she was right.  I LOVE this underwear. More than I loved my patterned underoos as a kid. Upon arriving back in SeaTac airport today I walked myself right back into that store and bought a few more pairs to take home.

As I was checking out the sales clerk recognized me. I nodded and said, “Yes, I’m back! And I LOVE the underwear!”

Just then, a woman checking out at the counter looked over at me and said, “Underwear?” with a quizzical look.

I found myself gushing:
“They are so thin you can barely feel them on!
They fit perfectly!
They are odor free and stain free!
You can wash them in the sink and they dry in ten minutes so you don’t have to pack as many pairs when you go on vacation!”

Yeah…. so I have now talked more about my underwear with strangers in airports in one week than I have over my entire life. But let me say this: nothing is more kind than a great pair of underoos on your bottom. Talk about feeling powerful and kind all at the same time.

(Bonus! They told me Exofficio has a super undies sale two times a year.)

My new motto: be kind and wear comfortable underwear.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 284 :: kind choices

11 Oct

Choices.

I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed by stories and sad stories and horror stories. Thanks a lot, media. It seems to me that there has been a lot of “not so great choices” made lately leading to “not so great” news.

And that has me thinking about choices.
And choice.
And how we always have a choice.
And, if nothing else, we have a choice to be kind.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 282 :: gaga on kindness

9 Oct

Share.

I’m in SeaTac airport, traveling today. I am constantly impressed with the kindness of strangers and travelers – from the helpdesk support team to the waiters in the cafes.

As I get ready to fly, I am sharing an oldie but a goodie:  Gaga on Kindness. You can watch it here

Bon voyage!

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 277 :: sprinkling kindness

4 Oct

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
