What miracles could you count today? There had to be at least one.

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

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 80 :: trust

22 Mar

{trust} 

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!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 79 :: trust the adventure

21 Mar

{trust} 

I find myself in Chicago tonight, it’s another travel day. Which means an adventure. Today’s adventure started off with my Uber driver canceling my ride to Logan Airport. It’s okay, I just called another UBER and made it to the airport just a little late. I still had time.

Then my bag was pulled in the airport security line for inspection.  I waited behind two other people waiting for their bags to be inspected. The first was a young mother with a bag full of breast milk. As the security guard inspected her bag the breast milk spilled all over the security table which took extra time to clean up. Then the next woman in line had a bag full of hairspray and soda. As I stood in line waiting, not very patiently, for my turn I couldn’t help but chastise these poor bag packers and vacation planners standing in line ahead of me as the time ticked away to take off. 

Finally, it was my turn and the security guard picked up my bag. Then she promptly pulled out not a bottle of milk, or hairspray or soda… but a metal tool called a Leatherman.

I gasped, and said, “Oh, my God we have been looking for that thing for weeks! I have no idea how it got in my computer bag…”

The security said, “Do you want to check it in your luggage and go back through security?” I looked at the long line and contemplated what was worse, missing my flight or telling Justin that the Leatherman he had been searching the house up and down for the last two weeks now permanently lived at Logan Airport.

I chose the latter and made my flight. The irony of all it this is that when I spoke to Justin tonight neither of us could figure out how the Leatherman got into my computer bag but both of us agreed that I was the worst offender out of everyone in line (especially the ones I was judging for their poor packing skills). Turns out I was the true idiot packer in line today. 

But it was an adventure. 
Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 77 :: trust the final project

19 Mar

{trust} 

Whew!! It’s done. We added the final touches tonight and I have to say… I love it. We still have to get all the candles and lanterns but… this baby project is complete! (Thank you Justin!) 

Sometimes the hardest part of any project or piece of art is trusting your instincts and knowing when it’s time to stop and call it done. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 76 :: trust the new

18 Mar



{trust}  

I am the proud new owner of a mouth guard. I’m not too happy about it, mostly I’m concerned it will be hard to sleep. But I grind my teeth so therefore the guard is necessary.

It’s hard to change your routine, ever. But it’s especially hard when you have practiced how you sleep your entire life. Which I have. So this is going to be interesting…

“Trust the new,” I keep telling myself. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 75 :: trust you are lucky

17 Mar

{trust} 

I didn’t wear any green today but I do feel lucky.

We spent the day sanding, painting, and sanding and painting. The faux fireplace is real and really done (except for the final insert but who’s counting?). I feel lucky to have a husband who takes my inspirations and helps turn them into real things for me to enjoy.

Even though it required seventeen trips to Lowes. On one of the last trips a man in the building aisle turned and said to us, “I’ve seen you both here so many times, you must be making something really cool.”

Five returned items and one new circ saw later, we have a beautiful faux fireplace complete with 45-degree angles. But I have something else in my heart. Trust.

On this St. Patrick’s Day, I am thinking about those who are lucky to live in trust. With their loved ones, their families and friends, their communities, and a hubby who will go to the ends of the world to build their dreams… or at least to Lowe’s seventeen times.    

As this year moves on, it is becoming clear to me that we need to build more trust. Between the headlines of mass shootings and college entrance bribings and children marching, to mention a few, I have to wonder if more Trust could help solve it all.

I would like to live in that world, a world where trust was the simple answer. As I sit here, at the end of the luckiest day of the year, I wish we could all be so lucky.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 74 :: trust is working together

16 Mar

{trust} 

The fireplace is 80% of the way complete. After four trips to Lowes today and a few improvisations on the fly, I have to say the finished product is better than we imagined. And should be finished tomorrow!

And that makes me think about how much better everything is when we collaborate and trust each other. The world needs more trust and collaboration. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie
