JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9
power – 20 days to go
{trust}  

There are 20 days left of The Promise 365! 

Sometimes the most simple things are the most powerful. I have learned many lessons over the past nine years, including love, fearlessness, abundance, peak performance, bliss, joy, and kindness. All of them have one thing in common, trust. 

It’s funny to be on this side of making promises. Now, that I know this is my last one (who would have thought trust would be the grand finale?) I am in awe of how they all connect together through the power of trust. 

It takes trust to love. It takes trust to be kind. It takes trust to go after peak performance and to follow your bliss, tap into joy, and live in abundance.

It is the simple power of trusting yourself. And that is simply powerful. 

So here’s to trusting yourself in all that you do.
You got this

JAMIE'S BLOG – YEAR 9 scars – 21 days to go

10 Dec


{trust}  

There are 21 days left of The Promise 365! 

If there is one thing I have learned from this lesson of blogging, it is this: wait for the end of the story. Each year I have made a promise and set a series of events into motion. Each year, I have been surprised. This year may have been the biggest one yet. I didn’t plan to end this blog this year, in fact, I thought I would go for a nice round number of 10 years. But then my friend Amy pointed out that nine is a completion year in some belief systems.

It struck a nerve. I knew it was the answer to this year of TRUST. So I am trusting that this is the completion year of The Promise 365.

Just as I had to trust the lessons of years before, even though there have been many surprises. Like the year I promised Peak Performance and ended up having a double masectomy. The surprise for me wasn’t just the surgery, it was also the scars it left behind. The two perfect Nike swooshes that now adorn the surgical scars right across my breasts.

It was a surprise of peak performance, one that will lead to a life of peak performance and for that I am grateful. I am also grateful for scars and surprises. Sometimes they are the best gifts you never could have imagined for yourself (trust me on that one!). 

Each season has a reason and a purpose and a lesson. You just have to look for it!
Trust me!

JAMIE'S BLOG – YEAR 9 new and old – 22 days to go

9 Dec


{trust}  

There are 22 days left of The Promise 365! 

We received something new today (a washer and dryer) and it makes me revel in the feeling of new. New is exciting! New is fun! New is new! New! New!

And yet, there is something so special about all that is old. Old is sacred.

I look back on The Promise 365 and all the blog posts of these past nine years. There will be a total of 3,285 blog posts. In those blog posts, the newest ones are the most intriguing to me but the oldest ones are the most sacred. Like the first day I ever blogged

Some of my blogs are less sacred and I find a little silly, but all of them add up to one big body of work – and my life. If there is one thing this blogging journey has taught me it is this: you have to start somewhere. That’s the only way that new becomes old.

Trust me!

JAMIE'S BLOG – YEAR 9 sundays – 23 days to go

8 Dec


{trust}  

There are 23 days left of The Promise 365! But there are only three Sundays left in the year and this blog. So today I ruminate on Sundays.

First of all, there are the let down Sundays like today, where the Patriots lost the afternoon game. (There have been many winning Sundays along the way too!). Then there are the inspiring ones like the times I have visited churches on islands and cathedrals in Paris. There are also the long-awaited ones where I hang on to the weekend with a tight grip and a good book before the workweek begins again.

But most of all there are the Sundays that represent new beginnings. They symbolize new days ahead with new ideas, new adventures, and new experiences. These are the rest of the Sundays in December of this promise and this blog. Because, while The Promise 365 is ending that means the future is beginning. 

And there is no greater adventure than the future.

JAMIE'S BLOG – YEAR 9 believe – 24 days to go

7 Dec


{trust}  

There are 24 days left of The Promise 365!

In many ways, it’s easier to believe in hope and faith during the holidays. The lights are twinkling bright, the world seems to put reality on pause and believe in magic. I think that’s part of why the Christmas season is so special. But I also know that hope and faith are the secret, invisible forces that make magic happen all year long.

I have experienced so much hope, faith, and love over these past nine years, and all I can say is that you have to believe. In season, and out.

JAMIE'S BLOG – YEAR 9 magic – 25 days to go

6 Dec

{trust}  

There are 25 days left of The Promise 365!

I am two movies into a Hallmark Holiday on the Hallmark Channel on this Friday night. They are admittingly corny and sappy and all end in the same way. But isn’t it nice to know you count on a happy, sappy love story every Christmas?

I like knowing there is a place in this world that still holds onto a little magic, happy love stories, and Christmas carols. After all, magic is only magical if you believe in magic.

Happy magic.
Trust me!

JAMIE'S BLOG – YEAR 9 today – 26 days to go

5 Dec


{trust}  

There are 26 days left of The Promise 365!

If there is anything that blogging for nine years has taught me it is this — appreciate today. Each day. Every day. I know there will be times that I will miss the process of writing this blog and capturing all the beauty and adventure of each day. Because that has been the gift over these last nine years. Capturing the fun moments, the funny mishaps, the small gifts, and the big, life-changing experiences!

If there is any advice I could possibly share after these nine years, it would be this: dedicate yourself to today.  Or you might miss it.

Trust me!

JAMIE'S BLOG – YEAR 9 dreams – 27 days to go

4 Dec


{trust}  

There are 27 days left of The Promise 365!

I’m off to bed and looking forward to a good night’s rest. As I lay my head down on my pillow, I hear these words, “Hold onto your dreams!” 

This blog has been nine years of discovery, adventure, and dreams. But the best dream of all is the next one you have. 

Stay true to you. Trust your desires. And go after your dreams.  

Trust me!

JAMIE'S BLOG – YEAR 9 4-letters – 28 days to go

3 Dec


{trust}  

There are 28 days left of The Promise 365!

Love is a four-letter word. Tonight, I present an ode to four-letter words, and to my dear friend Diane who taught me the four-letter word game. It goes like this…

Kind is a four-letter word
Love is a four-letter word
Play is a four-letter word

You get the idea. My point isn’t so much about the game as it is about the person. Diane has been a fixture of this blog for nine years. Mostly in the background, sometimes in actual posts, but always reaching out and giving me encouragement behind the scenes. She reads the blog and emails me almost daily with a little tidbit of feedback or appreciation. She is The Promise 365’s Number One fan. 

So tonight, I dedicate this post to Diane. She may be old enough to be my grandmother but she is young at heart. She reflects love, she is kind, and she loves to play the four-letter word game. 

May you always be surrounded by many GOOD four-letter words and KIND friends. 
Trust me!
More tomorrow.Jamie

JAMIE'S BLOG – YEAR 9 easy – 29 days to go

2 Dec


{trust}  

There are 29 days left of The Promise 365!

I love it when things are easy. Today I went to the dentist and he fixed my chipped front tooth. It was easy, so, so easy. And, it feels so good to have experts to rely on when you need them.

It’s taken me a long time to learn this lesson. Relying on others is a gift, and accepting and allowing the gifts of others to impact your life is a blessing.

So, I say… focus on what’s easy. Just as the snow is falling outside my window in an effortless fashion, we must also allow and let go into what is easy. 

Be like the snow… fall into place in an easy and effortless way.
Trust me!
