JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 108 :: joy of celebration

17 Apr
{others}

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? 

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

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

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

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 20 :: joy ride

20 Jan
{en-joy}

We took the Blue Bug to Seattle today — for a little joy ride. I had my acupuncture appointment and then Jaynane and I headed to the Ballard neighborhood looking for a little joy – and I believe we found it!

In a few consignment stores, a yummy hamburger and a walk around the block. It reminds me that the journey is the adventure, and joy is found in shared moments.

Thank you, Seattle, for bringing us a little joy today.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 364 :: a kind way

30 Dec
{forgiveness}

So many lessons. One of my biggest from this year of Kindness, this year called 2017, is the big doozie. Forgiveness.

She has floated in an out of my life like a little butterfly. Popping up here and there, year after year, reminding me how to cultivate forgiveness. And this year, she popped up again.

Floating above me, calling to me, reminding me to practice the art of forgiveness. It is a kind lesson. Maybe the kindest of them all. For forgiveness floats in and out, back and forth and then always returns.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie
