JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 141 :: trust you can do anything

22 May

{trust}  

Time is a funny thing. It goes by so fast when reading a good book, watching a great movie or eating an amazing meal. And yet it goes by so slow when running on a treadmill

Today was Day 4 of our Mayhem challenge at OrangeTheory, and it was all out mayhem. During the start of a 90-second all-out run, our coach yelled, “You can do anything for 90 seconds!”

The words sounded so familiar. It’s what I say all the time. “You can do anything for a year.” Of course, I’m usually talking about writing a blog post from the couch or making a promise from my heart, neither of which require you to sweat with side splints, running up an incline trying not to toss your cookies.  

And yet there is so much truth in that phrase, “You can do anything for _______”.

Just fill in the blank with your greatest timing challenge. Sometimes it’s a year of making a promise, sometimes it’s a month, or a week, or a day going after your goals … and sometimes it is just 90-seconds (on a treadmill). 

No matter your timeframe, you go this. Even in it makes you sweat.   

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 140 :: trust in all of it

21 May


{trust}  

Ohhhhh, my body is screaming at me. But one of my dreams this year is to get back into shape and trust that my body can handle it. So here I am, sore. And trusting in my dreams, all of them. 

You can tooooooooooo. Trust in your dreams, all of them.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 139 :: trust in your dreams

20 May



{trust}  

Tonight I am tired in the best of ways… my muscles are sore from a little OrangeTheory workout. As I was running on the treadmill tonight I thought about how much it helps to have a coach. Someone to push your forward. Someone to prevent you from automatically stopping, or stopping too soon.

Dreams are that way too. 

We need a dream coach as much as we need one for workouts. Someone who trusts in your dreams more than you do. Someone who won’t let you quit. 

SO… Let your dreams rise and your fears fall. You got this.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 138 :: trust in the seasons

19 May

{trust}  

Nine years ago I started this blog. Five years ago I discovered my love of flowers. Today, I saw the first blossom on our rhododendron plant. It’s like falling in love all over again.

The rhodies are about to bloom and they make my heart soar. 

I discovered my love of flowers when they were my only hope. I was in my head waiting for surgery and they were in the yard waiting to bloom. Both of us were looking up to the sky every day praying for life. As I waited, they slowly unfolded, each petal gently reminding me of the faith it takes to live and the beauty that comes with it.

It’s five years later and today I discovered that the rhododendron plant in front of our new home on a new coast in a new year and a new life is blooming the color purple. It was Mama Sling’s favorite color. It’s also a good reminder that spring is the best time to bloom and summer is the best time to fly. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 137 :: trust in happy

18 May

{trust}  

The sun came out today. I went shopping for summer clothing. I am now eating chocolate. Justin is watching Star Wars. This is happy.

There are many other things around me that don’t feel all that happy. The fervent doctrines of polarizing political parties all over social media. Our planet warming at alarming rates. The Red Sox lost today.

But if there is something life has taught me, and trust is underscoring this year, it is to trust in happiness. Finding the little things in life to make you happy is an art and a science.

One thing I know to be true, the happier we are with the little things the more we are able to make changes to the big things. So look for the happy. And when that doesn’t work… maybe eat some chocolate.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 136 :: trust the circles of life

17 May

{trust}  

Life is a circle. I thought of this many times tonight as I had dinner with two amazing women who I have circled back to. They were part of my first Boston life and now part of my second Boston life.

There are so many circles in life, leading us around the and around until we end up where we are supposed to be, right when we are supposed to be there. And, what this year of trust is teaching me is that we need to trust the spin cycle. The circle that takes us around the moon and then back again. The experiences that circle us from one moment to the next and then back around again.  

Trust the circle of life to spin you around. You might end up in a better place than you could have ever imagined. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 135 :: trust the light

16 May

{trust}  

Ah, trust. As the world keeps spinning and this year keeps moving along, trust is reminding me to be the light. In a world that needs more lightness, our only choice is to help usher it into the darkest of crannies and corners.

To be it, bring it and share it and trust that it will land where it is needed most. 

  So, here’s to the lightworkers. You know who you are!

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 134 trust is a relationship

15 May



{trust}  

Happy Birthday, Justin. You have shown me over the years that trust is a foundation of love. A state of love and trust, if you will. But seriously, we have had so many adventures and most of them over the course of this blog. 

What I love most is that I can barely find photos of just Justin. Most are photos of Justin and I, together. There’s something really special about that, which brings me back to trust. 

  The kind of trust that moves mountains. Happy Birthday, Justin.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 133 :: trust there is always a reason

14 May

{trust}  

We just returned from a night with the Boston Pops. It was a pre-birthday present for Justin who is a huge Star Wars fan and constantly quotes lines from the movies (do or do not there is no try) or drops them casually into a conversation (fly casual). The event melded the live musical score and the classic movie Star Wars A New Hope into one amazing experience with a movie screen hovering above the live orchestra in Symphony Hall. I have never seen the movie in this light and I have never appreciated the music behind it so much before.

The two on their own are masterpieces. When combined they are absolute magic. 

It makes me so deeply appreciate the gifts and talents of those who create great works of art, stories, cinema, cinematic drama, music and more…. They are the stuff gifts are made of, they are also the stuff life is made for – appreciation.

We all have gifts. What a shame to not share yours with the world.

  And that brings me to trust.
Trust there is always a reason to shine.   

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie
