JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 139 :: a path of joy

17 May
{future forward}

I’m all about promises. I love promises. I keep my promise all year long. And, the best part is I never know where it will take me. It is a path that winds out before me and I can never quite see around the corner. But I can always look back and know exactly where I’ve been.

Life is a lot like that. We see the path we’ve been down so clearly. The secret, it seems, is to have that same amount of clarity for the path ahead. And then follow it.

Maybe that’s why I make so many promises, year after year. It’s like blazing a trail, setting a vision, holding to a dream and then following the path — wherever it takes me, even though I can never see the destination. 

This year, joy is taking me on a ride. Down a path. Into the future!
We’ll see where it goes…

Where are you going?

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 124 :: sunny days and longer nights

3 May
{oh joy}

The days are getting longer, the sun is getting brighter and the air feels lighter around here. Oh, joy!

Sunshine brings me so much joy. And joy can be so simple when we watch for the simple signs… like sunlight shining through the air.  

So simple. So true. So joyful. And…So much better when shared with someone you love.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

17 Apr

As I pack my bag tonight, getting ready to go see some very special people, I am struck by the massive amount of joy it brings to me.

Joy truly is celebrating others.

Who can you celebrate?

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 102 :: shiny joy

11 Apr
{inside job}

Joy is an inside job.

As I move through this promise of JOY I am noticing that something keeps niggling at me, something inside, forcing me to pay attention to that which brings me joy.

The ironic thing is this: joy always starts from the inside. You can’t wear it. You can’t hold it. You can’t drape it over you. It has to start from deep inside. From there, it easily shines out in all directions around you.

So….dig deep.
And shine on.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

{shine on}

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 87 :: prime time friday

30 Mar
{millions}

Oh, joy! Tonight we watched women’s basketball on prime time. The games were amazing. Overtime to boot! The little girl inside me that never understood why women’s basketball didn’t get fans full of stands was thrilled.

Actually, over the moon. 

It made me think about joy — and how there are SO many ways, millions of ways, to find something joyful. So why not just pick one a day?

Just one. That’s all it takes to fully feel joyful.
Even if it’s watching a great game.
On prime time.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 57 :: sunshine & joy

27 Feb
{breakthrough)

Sometimes the breakthrough comes after the break… and today, the sun broke through the clouds outside my window. If only for a moment.

It had me thinking about the joy of spring. And how I cannot wait to experience more of it.

My heart is calling for spring. And our world is certainly calling for more joy. May they both sprout forth.  

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 38 :: the joy of showing up

7 Feb
{everyday}

Ah, perseverance. I was thinking of you today. And how much joy I get from showing up here every night. It’s not like I always have something profound to say, but I do feel the power of perseverance in this promise. 

It is the power of showing up.

Joy.
I do not know where you will take me this year… but it’s already starting to get interesting.

Here’s to showing up!

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 37:: joy of faith

6 Feb
{hope}

I’ve been thinking a lot about faith lately. And I think I found the key…  

Hope.
Faith is an act of hope. But hope is the key to faith. And the final result might be joy. The trick is to keep the faith… and that takes hope.

It’s a vicious and beautiful cycle. One I am certainly happy to ride this year. Here’s to faith!

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 25 :: for the joy of it

25 Jan
{don’t stop}

I received this in the mail from Smith College. It’s a little token of thanks for the recent webinar where I shared my story and everything I have learned over this promise (in its 8th year!).

The magnet couldn’t be more perfect. I haven’t stopped blogging since the day I started. Mostly because it continues to propel me forward, teach me more than I ever could have imagined, and surprise me every single year.

The bottom line is…it brings me joy.

There is joy in that — even in the everyday slog, the days where I have nothing to say and the moments where it feels like I have nothing to share. Mostly because those days add up to weeks and then months, and then seasons. And each season has a lesson. Each year has a reason. But I wouldn’t see it if I didn’t show up – every single day.

Want to find your joy? As a little magnet I know says…
Don’t stop working for it. 

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie
