JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 20 :: trust is a team sport

20 Jan


{trust}  

I am exhausted after watching the Patriots pull out another overtime, nail-biting win. Even though I grew up as an athlete, learning how to recover after losing and be fueled by winning, these last minute games make me break out in full body sweat.

It’s an amazing feeling, the euphoria of the win. And devastating to lose. So much of being an athlete is learning to trust, in your team, in your coach and in yourself.

But something about watching the Patriots play tonight, I am reminded that trust is a team sport. Whether it is in athletics, home or work. We all have teams that fuel our success.

Teams are connections are built on trust. We are only as strong as the person next to us, catching us when we fall and holding us up when we win.

That’s what teammates (including workmates and homemates) do best.
Trust your team.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 19 circle of trust

19 Jan


{trust}  

It’s snowing outside and has been most of the afternoon. Which is ironic because this morning when I woke up to take Brady outside I could have sworn it was a spring day. So clear, so warm, so fresh outside.

And now, as the snow plow just drove by it definitely feels like January. Which made for a cozy night inside watching movies. For us, it was Meet The Parents and then Meet The Fockers. Both bring us the Circle of Trust.

It’s funny, I haven’t thought of the circle of trust yet, in this year of Trust. But it makes sense. Having a small circle of people to count on, to believe in, to conference with and to trust. Without all the truth serum of course.  

Here’s to those we trust, and love, and believe in… through rain or snow. 

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 18 :: trust your body

18 Jan


{trust}  

It’s Friday night, not even eleven pm and I am tired. In fact, I am ready for bed because I almost fell asleep on the couch. Twice.

So I am trusting that my body needs to sleep. 

Which is the best part of Friday night…. sleeping in on Saturday morning. 

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 17 inside trust

17 Jan


{trust}  

Trust is a quiet thing, isn’t it? It lives inside. It is invisible, actually one of the most invisible forces. It’s quite calm too… almost too calm.

I’m getting used to the calmness, I think. Actually, I’m just trying to trust the process. 

Because trust is an inside job.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 16 :: happy

16 Jan



{trust}  

Today I am trusting happiness.

As I was driving home tonight I felt the lightness and lift that comes with happiness. The world flew by me in slow motion, each street light, turn, house and landmark along the way. Then that familiar hill in the final stretch home with a glimpse of the Boston skyline. 

Most of the time I feel happy, so it wasn’t a surprise to recognize this emotion. But it was so wonderful to see it all play out in slow motion as if I was recording each and every turn.

It has me thinking that trust is also about recognition. Really seeing all that is before us. Trusting the view. 

Thank you, Trust.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 15 :: snuggly snuggle

15 Jan


{trust}  

We are watching the first This Is Us of the year and through a few tears (as always) we are mostly snuggling. And by that, I mean, Brady is mostly snuggling and taking up the couch.

My rule about no dogs on the couch lasted about three months. Somehow Brady has worked his way up to our level, slowly and one paw at a time. But somewhere inside of me I trust that this is how it is supposed to be. 

So now, we have a fluffy dog bed on the floor that goes unused and we have super furry snuggles on the couch. Which if we are counting dog years it is totally worth it.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 14 :: wax on, wax off

14 Jan

{trust}  

We are watching Karate Kid tonight and it has hit me that the movie has a lot to say about trust. The theme of trust runs through learning new skills and trusting young love and fighting against the odds.

It’s funny when you start paying attention to something and it begins to show up in every aspect of your life. Like buying a red car… red cars pop up everywhere.

Trust is starting to show up in that way for me, around every corner, down the street, up above, down below….popping up everywhere.

Even in the storyline of a classic 80’s movie. 

Wax on, wax off.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 13 :: day 13

13 Jan


{trust}  

It’s already day 13 of this year. It’s hard to believe we are two weeks into this year so far… so fast.

One of the things I have the hardest time with is trusting time… and timing. So I’m trying really hard to trust, allow and relax when it comes to time, the kind that goes by too fast and too slow.

The struggle is real. Maybe this year will teach me a thing or two? 

I trust it will, one day at a time.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 12 internal navigation

12 Jan

{trust}  

In my life, it seems, I am always filling my thyroid prescription. It is an every 30 day sort of activity. The hardest part of this process is that the medicine is rarely fully in stock, which means I have to schlep to the pharmacy mutliple times a month.

Today was one of those days. After calling multiple pharmacies, I finally found my medication. It was a new Walgreens I have never been to before but they had a partial of my prescription, so I took it.

On my way home I punched “home” into our car navigation and followed the directions for each turn. Ironically it was always the opposite direction of what my gut was pushing me to do.

Turn left, my gut said.
Turn right, the car navigation chimed in.
Go straight my gut said.
Turn left the car churped.

Finally, I stopped listening and followed my internal navigation all the way home. When I finally stopped in our driveway I flipped through the maps preprogrammed feature and found that the car still has the state of Washington GPS as the “home” button. Which explains all the wrong turn signals. The car was trying to pull me to the highway with every turn, even though I knew that wasn’t the right way.

It’s a small reminder to me, to trust your gut instincts and internal navigation. Even when all the signs point the other way.

And, of course, to update your map settings. 

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 11 no drama

11 Jan



{trust}  

It’s been an interesting eleven days in this year of 2019. So far, trust is hanging nicely with me. But there is one thing she is teaching me that I didn’t quite expect. There is no drama in trust.

She is calming this one. This promise of trust. Whenever I find myself in dilemma or confusion she jumps in and tells me to trust. And be calm.

It’s kind of a nice balance. 

The best drama is no drama. 
Trust. Me.

Lovemore,
Jamie
