JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 88 dreams are made of trust

31 Mar


{trust}  

Trust me. I’ve been thinking about this topic of trust for a while now… at least 88 days. It has me spotting things, or I should say, looking at things in a new light. Like the flowers trying to spring out of the ground and the trust it must take to push through layers of soil to follow the sun.

Or the winning shot at the end of a basketball game, and the trust it must take to keep pushing forward. Trust is a game of faith and hope and its the stuff dreams are made of. 

But without trust, I’m not sure it’s possible to go after your dreams. You have to trust there is a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. You have to trust there will be sun after you push through the soil. And you have to trust that game-winning shot will leave your hands and fall through the hoop. Maybe that is why it is called March Madness. 

It’s quite mad to believe in spring, that the sun will melt the snow and the flowers will come out to play. But we do. We trust it will happen. And it does. 

What a beautiful reminder from Mother Nature to keep the faith, hope… and trust.  

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 88 :: trust is tricky business

30 Mar



{trust}  

Oh, madness! We watched the latest NCAA March Madness games tonight and it has me thinking about not giving up, the power of trusting yourself through the final ticking seconds, and sticking with it when all seems lost.

Trust is proving to be a tricky business as I explore it more this year, but just like March Madness trust is also teaching my basketball-loving heart that it’s not over until the final buzzer…   

So why not trust and believe and play until the very end? It could be worth it!

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 87 :: trust sleepy eyes

29 Mar

{trust} 

My sleepy eyes are telling me it is time for bed…. because I just woke up after falling asleep on the couch. It’s a March Madness night but I don’t think these sleepy eyes will make it through the game.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 86 :: trust is a mental model

28 Mar

{trust} 

I read an article today about mental models. You can read it here. To quote the article:

A mental model is an explanation of how something works. It is a concept, framework, or worldview that you carry around in your mind to help you interpret the world and understand the relationship between things. Mental models are deeply held beliefs about how the world works.

It inspired me to start thinking about trust and if it could be a mental model. Trust is a framework of sorts… trusting what comes at you, what develops around you, and how to react to all you cannot control. A mind that is aligned with trust is a less chaotic environment, with less stress, and more flexible thinking. Trust is a framework.

Trust is a mindset and a mental model. Not that I have it under control or know exactly how to use it… yet. But that’s what this year is for. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 85 :: trust your daily routine

27 Mar


{trust}  

I don’t think much about my daily routine because it happens daily. Same milestones usually ending with me in front of my computer writing a blog. Then brushing my teeth. Going to bed.

Then it starts all over again. Alarm clock goes off, I begin taking my thyroid pills, taking a shower, getting dressed, taking the dog out, taking my keys out, starting the car. Sometimes I skip a step like Justin will take the dog out. But mostly, this is the routine.

We don’t think much about routines because they are the glue of what keeps our sanity and our schedules together. We trust them.

So tonight I was thinking about trust and my routine and if there is a way to add more trust to my day.   

It’s an interesting question. What if I trusted myself to eat more vegetables or exercise more? What would it take to create more trust in new or better routines? I’m not sure of the answer but I like asking the questions. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 84 :: trust the magic

26 Mar

{trust} 

Trust is a funny thing… it keeps testing me. It also keeps telling me to be patient (in line) to be calm (when I want things to go faster), to not react (when someone is royally annoying me), you know, the everyday events in this thing called life.

It’s a test of sorts, this trust thing. So I am beginning to trust the magic of the lessons it brings.  

Everything happens for a reason, so trust the magic, she (trust) whispers to me every day now. Trust the magic. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 82 :: trust your inner superhero

24 Mar

{trust} 

While in Chicago this week, I happened upon the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (C2E2) – it happened to be happening at the hotel I was staying at for a work function. We first noticed it when one of my coworkers commented… “Wow, why does everyone in Chicago have blue or green hair?”

It is the largest pop culture convention in the Midwest. And when I say pop culture I mean, all of pop culture. There were many sights I recognized like R2D2’s rolling around the hotel floors, Captain America’s in costume, Dead Pool outfits. And there were sights I have never seen before… costumes, makeup, capes and such. Some of which I think were just made up and not based on any comic.  

We certainly stood out in business attire and button-down shirts amongst a sea of tights, capes and fake weaponry. I suppose we are all playing a part to some extent. 

All of it made me think about the costumes we wear every day, the masks we put on, the capes we don, for all the places where we blend in and the places we stand out.

I think the trick is to trust your inner superhero no matter where you land.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 81 :: trust is a state of being

23 Mar



{trust}  

Ah, trust. The sun will come out tomorrow! It snowed last night but the weather app on my phone says it will be always 60 degrees tomorrow. Does that mean Spring is really almost here?

Trust me, I’m ready. And as I wait for the weather to turn into warm summer breezy days I have to sit in a state of trust. Trust is truly a state of being.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

It’s a late night due to a delayed flight. The second time in two days that I have spent an hour on the tarmac. I still got to where I was going just not in the time I thought it would take. So tonight I offer this message of trust…

Trust me!

Jamie
