JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 21 :: trust is enigma

21 Jan


{trust}  

Oh, trust, I’m still getting used to you being my partner this year. As I learn to dance with you I am realizing how much I have been dancing with my other promises. Each one becomes a part of me.

Case in point, last night I did yoga during the entire Patriots game. Mostly because I was so stressed out watching the game and also because ever since I did yoga every single day for a year I now turn to the mat to destress.

It’s a part of me. Just like all my other promises, lovemore fearless, bliss, joy, peak performance, abundance, taking care of my head, heart, body and soul…etc.

What we think about we become. What we do we redo. So even though TRUST is still a bit of an enigma to me I’m okay with it. I know in time she will make her mission clear. 

Isn’t that what the best enigmas do?

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 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 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 2 :: trust the timing

2 Jan


{trust}  

Ah, trust. You are already screwing with me. Or at least playing games with my mind. Yesterday, I fell down a flight of stairs. Today, I missed an appointment, mostly because I was on my back all day yesterday and didn’t have time to prepare for the week ahead.

So that leaves me with this lesson of the day: trust the timing. It’s all I can do. My appointment was rescheduled out into the future and there it will wait for me. I am here in the present learning how to trust timing.

Maybe the future date will be better timing instead of today?
Maybe I will learn something or gain something before it arrives?
Maybe it’s just the universe testing my faith in trust?
Or, maybe it is all of the above…whatever it is I am focusing on trust. 

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 365 :: joy is a year of joy

31 Dec

{joy}  

OH, JOY!

What a year you have been. You have brought me a new job, new home, new town, and new adventures. You have filled our lives with laughter and love and appreciation for the people we love near and far, along with a heartbreaking goodbye to those that left us too soon, including Aunt Nancy and our dear #1 Pup.  

More than anything you have provided a clear path and a clearing space to move forward. And tonight you went out with a bang with fireworks over the Boston harbor!

After the fireworks, we tried to catch an UBER ride home but the surging cost was ridiculously expensive between $96 – $235. So we opted to take the FREE MBTA subway halfway home, then catch a cab the rest of the way. 

As we walked through the streets of Boston toward the train in the pouring rain I was pleasantly surprised to feel only warmth in my body. I was not cold or shivering even though I was dripping wet from the storm.

And I think that pretty much sums up my year of joy — sometimes you have to dance in the rain to feel fully alive. 

Because that is what we are here to do. To dance with joy. And, so we dance.

And yet, another year begins. I stand on the precipice of starting this blog all over again as I do every year on January 1st. It’s Decision Day, to blog or not to blog? To that, I say yes.

New Year’s Day marks the ninth year for this blog to live on and I graciously accept the challenge and the honor of being the conduit for these words and experiences to find a place to call home. 

You would think I would be out of words by now, and sometimes I think I am, or at least recycling them all too often. Or, as my dear Aunt DeAnne says with the care that only an Auntie can point out with full support and love, “sometimes you phone it in.”

And sometimes I do.

Because this blog isn’t about having the right words or the best stories or even the most things to say. It’s about showing up. It’s about evolving. It’s about moving forward and staying accountable to my dreams. Even if it rains. 

On the way home tonight in the pouring rain we passed a sign on the road that someone so beautifully painted in graffiti. It caught my eye because it spelled out the words, “Adventure Awaits.”

And so it does! The blog will reboot tomorrow with a new promise. Trust me.

As my fortune cookie says, “If you do not have a plan for your life someone else will.” But I say if you don’t trust in yourself, who else will?


Here’s to a year of joy. Thank you for 365 days of lessons and learnings that will always stay in my heart and guide me into the next adventure. 

What’s next? 
Find out tomorrow! 
Lovemore,
Jamie

A new year is almost here, and I have to say I am joyful about preparing for a new year and a new promise. Joy has been a joyride this year, with new adventures and big moves which makes it hard to imagine a new year

But a new year is almost here and a new promise is on its way….. 


Here’s to as much joy to behold before the New Year arrives.

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
