JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 280 :: stubborn trust

9 Oct


{trust}  

We had our palms read when I was in New Orleans this past weekend. The opportunities are everywhere around Jackson Square. I was told I had a long, strong lifeline and that I am stubborn and hard-headed. Whether you believe in this or not, it’s amazing how what someone else tells you sticks in your mind. I have been thinking about what she said and I have come to this conclusion. I am stubborn. You have to be to blog every single day, to make a promise, to follow up and most important for me this year – to trust.

Trusting is a stubborn game to play. You have to ignore what others say, you have to defy the odds and you have to stick with your gut. That is trust. 

So stick with it 
Be stubborn.
And own it.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 279 :: lovemore fearless trust

8 Oct


{trust}  

I was thinking about trust today… and how much it relates to being fearless. To trust wholly and completely leaves no room for fear. It brought me back to my year of Lovemore Fearless, where we swam with sharks and rafted the Grand Canyon. Trust is closely related to being fearless, and there are no compromises in a fearless life.  

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 278 :: unstoppable

7 Oct

{trust}  

I had the most amazing surprise weekend in New Orleans, and the more I reflect on it, the more I am reminded about my dear, sweet Mama Sling. Reuniting with my cousins this weekend, randomly because we were in the same place at the same time and staying in two hotels across the street from each other unbeknownst to us, was a wonderful surprise and a massive touchstone to my mother.

We shared stories about our memories of her, her sweetness and her strength. Her hugs and love, her ability to take care of others even when she was sick. She was such a beautiful blend of those two things. Sweet as pie, stronger than life itself. This is probably why she is so present with me today, and with my dear cousins too. They called her Aunt Wee, I called her Mama Sling. But really, what she was is called unstoppable.

Which brings me to this… 

If there was any message she could have shared with us girls, I think it would be this:  “Be sweet, be strong, be unstoppable.” That is what makes you unforgettable. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 276 cousins

6 Oct

{trust}  

What a wonderful surprise in New Orleans! I couldn’t have planned this better if I tried. A night of fun, food and catching up with the girls I grew up with but we just happened to be in New Orleans. It makes me wonder if life put us here for a reason… and in that I trust. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 275 :: trust & synchronicities

4 Oct

{trust}  

I don’t know if it’s the power of social media or the power of New Orleans but this little town has some amazing synchronicities. Including a surprise call today that my beloved cousins will happen to be here tomorrow, while I am still here on a work trip.

The best part is that this same thing happened last year on this same business trip too – it just happened to be Nashville. Call it ironic or voodoo but I couldn’t be more excited about this amazing coincidence one year later.

Let the good times roll! 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 273 :: burn bright

2 Oct

{trust}  

Tonight trust is whispering in my ear, saying: burn bright and show your brilliance to the world. And also to pick up a pizza on the way home…. both stupendous ideas if you ask me! If the saying “trust your gut” is correct then I must be listening. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 272 :: happy

1 Oct

{trust}  

I laughed a lot today. At a doctor’s appointment no less. I had my annual exam and pap smear, which I find to be the funniest word ever. Smear. Like it’s some sort of topping for toast. It isn’t, by the way, in case you have never had one.  

Right before the pap smear ensued I was asked to dress down and don the fabled paper gown. So I did, except for my bra, because you know, the girls are fake so it doesn’t matter anymore. I guess I forgot to tell my new doctor this because when she started my annual exam she opened up my gown and frowned at me. “Why are you wearing your bra?” 

I looked at her and laughed. “Oh, I forgot to tell you, these are fake.” 

She laughed. I laughed even harder.
Then she said, “You’re right, don’t need to examine those.” 

As we laughed even harder I realized that I forgot to tell her something else. Two night ago I did a body scrub made with Turmeric which turned the bathtub and my toes and fingers temporarily yellow. As I explained this to my new doctor I warned her that I may have other skin parts that were yellow from it too, so not to be alarmed. 

She laughed again.  
I laughed all the way through the procedure. 
She called me “Tumeric Toes.”
And then we laughed some more. 

I have never had more fun at a doctor’s office. Or laughed harder. Which is a welcome change in my life and truly underscores the theory that laughter is the best medicine. 

And, joy is a simple thing. A very powerful, simple thing. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.
Jamie
