JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 257 :: trust fall

14 Sep


{trust}  

It’s fall, which means it’s time to get together with my girls. Here we are huddled in Vermont for a girls weekend. I know I can always trust these ladies, through the miles and the years and a whole lotta tears. It’s our Trust Fall, each fall season we meet and reunite and retell the stories that bind us together. 

\

Last year was Colorado. This year is Vermont. Next year will be somewhere else. That, I can trust. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 255 & 256

13 Sep

trusting time
{trust}  

I just did something I have never done before… slept on a redeye flight home without posting my blog. Then, I did something else I have never done before… landed at the airport without scrambling to do my blog before I grabbed my luggage and hopped in an UBER to go home.

It’s been a long week of work and while I sat exhausted on the plane in my JetBlue seat I decided not to fight the feeling of sleep. I did the same thing when I arrived home as I crawled into bed at 7am. I slept. Mostly because I was tired but also because I decided to trust.

I trusted that I would eventually post this blog when my body had proper rest. I decided that the world wouldn’t end because of one late blog post in almost ten years. And then I decided to do something really wild… post two days in one.

So here it is! The first double post, ever. I am trusting the timing of it all. 

\

I will soon return to the airport to pick up a friend for a fun girls weekend and a drive to Vermont, so, here is the post for last night and tonight.

Maybe Trust is teaching me to be less rigid? Maybe Trust is asking me to lighten up? Or, maybe, Trust is just taking a timeout and a deep breath to remind me that time is precious so there is no need to hurry my Type A self?  Whatever it is, it is new. Which tells me my promise is working. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 253 :: trust on high

11 Sep


{trust}  

This may be the only high roller experience I have in Vegas (ever) and certainly on this trip: 

Maybe it takes a lot of trust to hang high in the sky on a Ferris wheel no less. But it’s worth the view. Isn’t it always?

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 252 :: trust in your dreams
{trust}  

It’s funny this thing called trust. Whenever I look for inspiring quotes or trust bombs online it all comes back to personal relationships and not getting hurt, or pushing through the hurt, or learning to trust again after being hurt. 

Except for this one by Hemingway: 

.        
This exercise in trust, so far this year, hasn’t been about trusting others or not getting hurt it has actually been about trusting myself and my dreams. And my goals. And who I am and what I want. Funny how none of those things have to do with others, isn’t it?

Maybe trust needs a rebranding campaign. One of faith, love, and determination and not accepting the norm. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 251 :: landed

8 Sep


{trust}  

I spent half the day in an airport and on a plane today. I have become so trusting of flying I didn’t even notice the turbulence today until the captain came on the loudspeaker and asked everyone to buckle up. 

Kind of ironic, isn’t it? To be so comfortable up in the air you have to be told to ground in and put your seatbelt back on. Another moment of trust.  And now… viva Las Vegas.        

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 249 :: stay with it

6 Sep

{trust}  

I am sore. Today was my third day in a row at OrangeTheory, in the morning class no less. I am pretty proud of myself for making it happen and being consistent and going to the morning class.

It’s not just a move of being consistent, although that is important to me.  It’s really the matter of putting myself first and treating my own body as the greatest priority of the day.

As I left class today I bumped into a fellow worker-outer. She is always very sprite and wears a smile. She looks like she could be my mother’s age but she works out harder than I do. As I left class today she gave me a smile and said, “You’re doing great!”

I responded back, “YOU’RE doing great!” She nodded and said, “It never ends you have to keep it up.”

And it’s true. She is beautiful and strong and such an inspiration to me.  

It also reminded me that strength and beauty but mostly consistency comes from within. Stay with it. Trust your body.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 248 :: smile more

5 Sep

{trust}  

Trust fact: smiles build trust. 

I read a bit about trust today and you know what came up? Smiles. According to an article on Psychology Today“Smiles are an integral part of human and primate communications. The bottom line: If you want others to trust you, smile at them genuinely.”

So I made a list of the things that make me smile. Topping the list are (no surprise) puppies, and babies, and the beach. Here’s a top 40 list (no surprise two of mine are on it).

It’s that easy to find joy and apparently build trust…then that gives me all the smiles. 
What’s on your list? 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 247 :: look toward the sun

4 Sep

{trust}  

I am excited to report that the orchids in my office bloomed this week. It’s the first time an orchid has bloomed in my care. It’s actually the first time an orchid has not completely died in my care, so I am beyond elated.

The plant sits on my bookcase and leans toward the sun. In fact, I didn’t even know it was blooming because the buds were pointing toward the sun hidden on the backside toward the wall. 

It reminds me that to grow you just need some water, good soil, and sun. So look toward the sun!

Trust me!
More tomorrow.
