JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 217 :: focus on trust

5 Aug

{trust}  

It’s Monday, ya’ll. Congrats, we made it through the starter day of the week. It’s like a practice day and then we have 4 more chances before the weekend arrives. I can do that.

Focus on that which you can believe in and trust (like Friday!). 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 166 :: trust and lemons

15 Jun

{trust}  

We had a little date night tonight and a flashback to a date night from nine years ago watching The Lemonheads on the Vineyard. Tonight we were in Boston at Paradise Rock Club instead of in the middle of an island but the music was just as fun.

It came with a lesson in trust too. As the concert started the guy next to us took a photo of the set list that was taped to the stage floor. We looked it over and I scanned it for the one song that I wanted to hear, Outdoor Type. It wasn’t there which was a bit disappointing. 

I turned to Justin and frowned, “Well, I guess they won’t be playing it tonight.”

He replied, “You never know, he might play it during the solo portion. They don’t need a set list for the solos. Keep the faith.”

I wrinkled my nose and said, “You mean trust?” 

It has become an inside joke around here just as much as it is my theme of the year. Turns out I had nothing to worry about because Evan Dando did play Outdoor Type (during the solo portion) and I recorded it on my phone (along with 200 other people).

This might just be a story about a song on a date night, in the middle of Paradise, but the point is, sometimes I give up too soon instead of waiting and trusting and believing. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 68 :: trust is believing

10 Mar

{trust} 

Day. Light. Savings. It’s here! Which means Spring is really, really, close, right? That may not explain why it snowed all morning. I do think winter challenges our trust in spring.

Today, a friend wrote to me about the importance of belief. Believing, really. And, I believe in many, many things, but today as we welcome Day Light Savings, I believe in Spring. 

Trust is believing. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 363 :: joy is believing in something

29 Dec



{joy}  

I believe in Joy. I believe it has changed my life this year and sent me down a path and a trajectory that I couldn’t have imagined last January 1st. 

I believe writing this blog every night forces me to face my dreams. It holds me accountable and it keeps me honest with myself. It provides a moment of reflection and allows me to lasso the words and thoughts floating in my head. 

I believe in the power of JOY.
And I believe Joy is believing in something. 


Here’s to believing in yourself.

More tomorrow… 

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 80 :: believe

23 Mar
{be clear, be loud}

As JOY continues to take me down this road, and this year, I keep running up against the message to be clear. I also keep hearing the message that we live in a world where we can be anything… and do anything. So why not be clear? And loud. And above all else… believe that you can. 

Thanks, Joy. I got (and shared!) the message.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 168 :: believing in kindness

9 Jul

Wonderment.

We just left Wonder Woman, the movie. The movie that is grossing more than Deadpool did. The movie that has women and little girls talking. The movie that was hyped to be amazing.

Not everyone I saw the movie with loved it. But, I was inspired. Not by the woman power thing (although that was great) and not by the super power thing (although entertaining) and not even by the costume thing (okay, I admit, I LOVED her boots!).

No, I was inspired by something else…. belief.


It was a theme that I felt running throughout the movie. Believing in what you are called to do. Believing in what you think is right. Believing in others. Believing in yourself.

At one point in the movie, my little niece leaned over and said, “She’s awesome” as Wonder Woman staved off bullets and guns and raced to save the villagers. As the scene continued where Wonder Woman was the only one brave enough to walk through a storm of firing shots and use her shield to defend and conquer, because she knew it was the right thing to do  –  that same niece learned over and said, “Okay, she’s really awesome!”

If a movie can do that, capture the attention of little girl even for a moment, even for a spark of admiration of strength and character and belief in oneself, then I think that’s pretty wonderful.

And maybe that’s what this movie hoopla is really about. Suspending time for just a moment to believe. Even if it is in a far-fetched CGI tale of Amazonian women warriors who are really cartoons and do only what superheroes can do in a movie.

But isn’t that what movies are supposed to do?

For just those few moments, I was inspired to believe. In love and kindness and all things that are right in this world.

(…and, of course, those boots!)

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 114 :: on kindness and believing

27 Apr

Heart.

The NFL draft started tonight, and with it, Justin sent me this:

It’s a good reminder, that no matter what others believe you have to believe in yourself. Isn’t that the kindest thing you could ever do?

Whether picked first.
Last.
Or not at all.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 213 :: magic moments

9 Aug

Day 213: Beauty.

I’m sitting here thinking about magical moments. I’ve had quite a magical day. I’m watching the Olympics, appreciating the magical moments these athletes are experiencing, as all the days they have been living most of their life for unfolds in this moment.

And then I’m appreciating the magical moments I share with the women in my life – my aunt, my nieces, and my mom’s best friend. From moments of shopping, trying on bathing suits to giggling like little girls with little girls.

There is magic that happens when women get together. Even if it’s just shopping. There is magic all around us.

Pure magic.


More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

P.S. And now I yoga!

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 2 :: always believe

2 Jan

In a total Bliss Move I received an early birthday gift from two of my favorite girls. And it couldn’t have arrived at a better time as I have officially lost my voice (sniff, cough, gag, Sudafed). 

The sign reads:
“Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen.”

I think it’s the perfect way to start the New Year and this new promise to Follow Your Bliss. (And to get rid of this cold!).

What do you believe will happen next for you?

More tomorrow. 
Lovemore,
Jamie

Jamie’s BLOG – DAY 138 :: believe

19 May

A little bit of beauty today comes from a book. It was a gift (thank you Kim!).

And it’s beautiful, both inside and out, because it’s all about believing.


What do you believe in right now?

(P.S. If you love it, you can get it here: Believe: A gift to celebrate new beginnings).

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie
