JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 31 :: trust is quiet reflection

31 Jan



{trust}  

Month One! It’s been one whole month of trust over here… and it has me thinking, reflecting on trust and the art of allowing. Which leaves me quiet. Without words. I know, that doesn’t happen very often.

But tonight, I am peacefully thinking about the quiet power of trust. 

It’s been One Month!!!
Trust me.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 30 :: trust is landing

30 Jan

{trust}  

A trusted friend recently told me that we always land on our feet. I like that image for the idea of trust. Two feet landing firmly on the ground. Because if you know the ground will always catch you it’s easier to jump.  

Maybe trust is about jumping higher. And maybe if you trust, it will take you further, faster.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 29 :: trust is…

29 Jan


{trust}  

It’s Day 29. Almost a month into trust and I feel like I really haven’t figured it out yet. So I looked up the definition again, you know, just as a gut check.

“To hope and expect that something is true….” is one way of defining trust as a verb. I like verbs because I like taking action. I don’t like sitting around waiting for others. I don’t feel comfortable when I’m not in control. And I don’t like waiting for results.

Funny thing is… trust doesn’t care about those things at all. Trust runs on hope. And hope is something that feels really good to me, yet out of my control.

So maybe this year, this Trust Promise is teaching me to build up reservoirs of hope as my action verb.

Hope. Hope. Hope. Hope.
I’m getting used to the sound of that…. 

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 28 :: trust is knowing you’re ready

28 Jan


{trust}  

Lesson #28 in trust…. know you’re ready. It seems simple, and yet it’s so big: knowing you are ready for what you want.

So, take this as a message from the universe… you are ready. Trust me.

Ready, set, go!

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 27 :: trust is holding onto your dream

27 Jan

{trust}  

We are watching the SAG awards tonight on TV and I keep hearing the same theme over and over again… hold onto your dream. It makes me think about trust. The trust it takes to follow your dream even when all the odds are against you.

There are 160,000 actors in SAG and only a handful of winners. It takes great focus, vision and a mess of luck to make it in the winner’s circle. But I suppose, the real winners are those that go after their dreams. Those who pursue. Those who continue on, even when they take a job at Trader Joes (Geoffry Owens).

My point is, trust can only come from within. It is not given and it is not won. 

So here’s to trusting your dreams, whatever they may be. 
Wherever they may take you. 

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 26 :: trust is being born

26 Jan



{trust}  

Today is my birthday. And on each of these very special days in life, I always think of my dear mother, Mama Sling. Not because she isn’t here now, but because she was there then. I can only imagine what this day meant to her.

To me, it has meant a smattering of celebrations throughout the years, from birthday cakes to surprise parties to even the times when it has been forgotten. Today, it included our trip to Newport. We toured mansions of the gilded age and saw what it was like to live (or summer) as a family of industry tycoons. It was not the first time I have visited the mansions. Each time I am in awe of the grandeur, the beauty and the feminity that stands in honor of a time long gone. It is like a glimpse into the past.

Which brings me to the present. It’s hard to imagine living without electricity let alone a cell phone these days. But they did. We live with so many comforts and so much technology it would make their victorian head’s spin. As I stood in the great hall of a gigantic mansion today, I thought to myself, “Life moves so fast.”

It really does. They were just here and now they are gone. Which brings me to my point. It’s very brave to be born. It’s very brave to trust in this thing called Life.   

.

We really never know where our turn around the sun will take us, let alone our trip of a lifetime. But we trust in it, that’s why we are here.

So on this day that I remember my mother, she who gave birth to me, I celebrate Life. And all the love I have felt from so many friends and family reaching out to remember me.

It is brave to be born, but it is important to live.
Trust me on that one. 

Lovemore,
Jamie

What we think, we create. This is the message that keeps coming up for me so far this year and it all relates to trust. Trust is a vision, really. We trust because we believe.

And, I believe this weekend is going to be wonderful… that is my vision.
Trust me!

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 24 :: be like the billy goat

24 Jan


{trust}  

Someone very wise recently told me to think of the billy goat. 

Because trust is like the billy goat – surefooted and confidently marching up a craggy, rocky mountainside. The billy goat doesn’t look down or examine all the potential pitfalls of their path. They move forward with swift confidence and surefooted fire.

I am trusting that this message will get to those who need it most tonight. Whatever it is in your way, or in your sights, be like the billy goat. Trust your footing, one step at a time. 

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 23 :: snowballs

23 Jan

{trust}  

I was hit by a snowball on my drive home tonight, just as I was passing my driveway. It startled me but I kept driving forward. I kept calm.

It has me thinking about trust and how important it is to keep calm in the middle of being hit with something you didn’t expect. As someone recently told me, we always land on our feet. No matter what it is.

Ironically, when I opened the front door I spotted the culprit. It was Justin who threw the snowball from the back porch. We had a good laugh about it. 

Ahhhhhhhh trust…. just another reminder to keep calm and watch out for snowballs.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 22 :: trust is a feeling

22 Jan

{trust}  

It seems obvious, doesn’t it? Trust is a feeling. But the more I look into trust and investigate everything behind it, I keep coming up to the feeling.

Because a feeling leads to a belief, and a belief leads to vision and action and steps forward…and everything else unfolds from there.

So trust is a feeling…. and right now I’m feeling like that is very important.

Lovemore,
Jamie
