JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY :: 149 my kind of summer

21 Jun

Ah, Solstice.  

It feels like it took you forever to get here. And now… here you are. Long night, lots of light, beautiful skies, and stars about to burst.

Part of me wishes every night were this kind.
Part of me knows the contrast is what we need. The dark meets the light.

But the other part of me says – HELLO SUMMER!

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

19 Jun
Spontaneous Slumber Party.

Is there anything more fun than a spontaneous slumber party?
Or kind?

I don’t think so!
And, so, I am thankful and enjoying my margarita and spontaneous girls day/night!
How kind!

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

 JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 163 :: kind memories

15 Jun

Birds and Magic.  

We watched ESPN’s 30 For 30 Tonight. It brought back memories, oldies but goodies. Full of Magic and Birds.

It brings back good childhood sports memories and makes me wonder about kindness. The kindness that happens when adversaries and rivals transcend social consciousness by respecting each other. And for one brief decade, all is right in the world.

If it can happen in a game, can it happen in real life?
And what would be possible if it did?

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

 JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 162 :: opposite of kindness 

14 Jun

Who me?  

This is not a look of kindness. This is a look of too many monkeys jumping on the bed.

It’s also a look of:
 What? Who me? Why are you yelling? 

Maybe it’s bad four-legged parenting. The bed was made and then I swear I turn my head for a moment and I find two dogs, a messy bed and two looks of incredulousness.

I yell. Then I laugh. Then I take a photo. It’s a cycle with these two.

I think their job is to keep me on my kind toes. And I think kindness is trying to teach me patience – and how to roll with it. Whatever “it” may be.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 157 4-letter friday

9 Jun

Flow.  

As in flower.

I passed this flower stand on my way home today. Situated at the corner of the path through the park it caught my eye. Just one vase of red flowers left.

And a note.

I love the idea of a flower stand and the idea of trust.
Trusting that people will pay for their flowers and pay it forward so that there may be more flowers.

Keeping it in the flow.
How kind.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

 JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 156 :: intentional kindness

8 Jun

Spirit.  

As a marketer, I love promotions. So, of course, I was excited about Spirit’s bonus middle seat promo yesterday while I was onboard – and sitting in a middle seat.

The promo was this:  PA announcement that there was one lucky middle seat on the plane and that person would win a free one-way ticket 0or 5000 bonus miles. All you had to do was pull down your seat tray table and look for the lucky sticker.

I pulled down my tray table with anticipation!
There was nothing there.
And yet, I still had much respect for Spirit’s promotion, because let’s face it, middle seats suck.

So, on my next flight from LA to Seattle when the PA announcement started up I knew what was going to happen. I pulled down the middle seat tray table and what did I find?

This!

It was the LUCKY middle seat. The only problem was this. I was in the aisle seat, and a young woman was in the window seat. The middle seat between us was empty.

I knew exactly what I had to do. Intentional kindness. I smiled at the young lady and said, “you should ring your call button and claim it.”

She smiled back and said, “Really?”
“Yes.” I exclaimed.

So she did, and when the flight attendant approached row 13 with the special yellow ticket in hand she looked at both of us and said, “Do you want to fight over it?”

You probably know how this story ends. I gave up the free ticket and handed it over –  happily – to the young woman with a smile on her face. It was the KIND thing to do. And here’s the rub! It made me SO HAPPY to give it to her. Funny how that works.

Kindness is contagious.
Kindness matters.
Give kindness a (LUCKY!) chance.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY :: 154 early flight

6 Jun
More kindness.  

I leave Chicago in the morning on a 6AM flight… and right now that is not feeling very kind of myself – booking a crack of the morning departure. What was I thinking?

And then there is this:

I like the sound of that – a kinder lifestyle. And right now, I’m thinking, maybe it should start with better flight times.

 JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 150 :: being kind and slow

3 Jun

Self-care.  

Ironically, I am sick again. Learning the deep meaning of self-care, sleeping in late, going slow, steam baths, Kleenex, NyQuil. Garlic pills. The usual suspects.

It feels soooooo slow to me. And yet, so kind. Maybe kindness is slow on purpose?

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 145 :: kindness on consignment

29 May

Finding kindness.  

Yesterday I found kindness on consignment. It was sitting on a shelf. Imagine my surprise…I moved it to this chair for a better photo:


It reminds me of this quote:

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.”― Wendy Mass

It also had me thinking about the kindness of consignment. Passing something on to someone else once it has met its mission in your life. I wonder who owned this “Be Kind” art piece. Why did they buy it? How long did it hang on their wall? What did they think when they looked at it? Did they pay attention to kindness? Did it change their life, or the lives of others in their life?

Who knows….

It has done its job well, by already showing up in mine. Even though I just snapped a photo I saw it. I really saw it for what it is. A reminder of what we all want.

To be seen. Even if sitting on a shelf in a consignment shop.
How kind.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 139 :: kindness is…

22 May

Science. 

I revisited this article tonight. The science of kindness. And how we are hardwired to be connected.

Forget Survival of the Fittest: It Is Kindness That Counts

It has me thinking about the kind of kindness it takes to be intentional. To be connective. To reach out and think of someone else through the kindness of the heart.

And that’s just it – someone else. The fact that at the other end of the conversation, phone, email, bus, sidewalk, road… there is another heart. Connective heart space. Connective kindness.

Connect.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie
