JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 92 :: trust the power of spring

4 Apr


{trust}  

As the flowers start blooming around here it feels like a whole new world. There are not many of them… yet. But it has me thinking about spring and what it means to trust your dreams. Spring is powerful. Spring is bright. It’s a good season to bring forward dreams. I think it’s also a good season to remember to trust the power within.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 90 :: trust in spring

2 Apr

{trust} 

Spring is coming! Spring is coming!

We have officially spotted a flower poking out of the ground. We are pretty sure it’s a yellow daffodil just waiting to bloom. It has me thinking about trust and spring and how they can bloom hand-in-hand. 

It’s a good reminder to be like a flower. Bloom and grow and trust the spring. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 89 :: trust the ones you are with

1 Apr

{trust} 

I started out my day with a routine blood draw. It’s never fun, it’s not like I look forward to it, but I have become a pro at getting through it. Pull up my sleeve, pump my fist, wait for the poke. “Tiny poke” they always say.

Today was just a little draw, one tiny vial for my thyroid check-in. While I am a pro at sitting in the chair waiting for the nurse to whip out a needle, today, the nurse on the other side of the equation was new. In fact, she was an intern.

“You don’t mind if Amy takes care of you today, do you?” the seasoned nurse asked and gave me a look that said, you better say yes.

“Of course not,” I nodded and felt a shiver go down my spine. “Just don’t make me cry” I begged. They all laughed. Then the needles came out.

Amy was perfectly lovely. I was rooting for her as I sat in the chair and she swabbed my arm. I sweet-talked my veins and asked them to pop up for her just so it would be easy… on all of us. I couldn’t help but think about how in this year of TRUST I had placed myself in a precarious position to trust an intern.

Amy was good though. I was calm. But my veins were hiding. They didn’t want to come out to play. Finally, one did and I waited for it to all be over without looking, of course, if there is one thing I have learned, it is that watching makes it worse. 

Then, Amy started to get nervous, she called the seasoned nurse over for help. My vein seized up and I could feel the needle digging in poking back and forth as they tried to fill the vial.  Finally, it was over and I let out a big sigh. 

I smiled at Amy and told her she did a good job. I have no idea if I was her first patient but I do know this:  We are all learning together. 

Sometimes, we have to trust the ones we are with. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 88 dreams are made of trust

31 Mar


{trust}  

Trust me. I’ve been thinking about this topic of trust for a while now… at least 88 days. It has me spotting things, or I should say, looking at things in a new light. Like the flowers trying to spring out of the ground and the trust it must take to push through layers of soil to follow the sun.

Or the winning shot at the end of a basketball game, and the trust it must take to keep pushing forward. Trust is a game of faith and hope and its the stuff dreams are made of. 

But without trust, I’m not sure it’s possible to go after your dreams. You have to trust there is a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. You have to trust there will be sun after you push through the soil. And you have to trust that game-winning shot will leave your hands and fall through the hoop. Maybe that is why it is called March Madness. 

It’s quite mad to believe in spring, that the sun will melt the snow and the flowers will come out to play. But we do. We trust it will happen. And it does. 

What a beautiful reminder from Mother Nature to keep the faith, hope… and trust.  

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 85 :: trust your daily routine

27 Mar


{trust}  

I don’t think much about my daily routine because it happens daily. Same milestones usually ending with me in front of my computer writing a blog. Then brushing my teeth. Going to bed.

Then it starts all over again. Alarm clock goes off, I begin taking my thyroid pills, taking a shower, getting dressed, taking the dog out, taking my keys out, starting the car. Sometimes I skip a step like Justin will take the dog out. But mostly, this is the routine.

We don’t think much about routines because they are the glue of what keeps our sanity and our schedules together. We trust them.

So tonight I was thinking about trust and my routine and if there is a way to add more trust to my day.   

It’s an interesting question. What if I trusted myself to eat more vegetables or exercise more? What would it take to create more trust in new or better routines? I’m not sure of the answer but I like asking the questions. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 76 :: trust the new

18 Mar



{trust}  

I am the proud new owner of a mouth guard. I’m not too happy about it, mostly I’m concerned it will be hard to sleep. But I grind my teeth so therefore the guard is necessary.

It’s hard to change your routine, ever. But it’s especially hard when you have practiced how you sleep your entire life. Which I have. So this is going to be interesting…

“Trust the new,” I keep telling myself. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 75 :: trust you are lucky

17 Mar

{trust} 

I didn’t wear any green today but I do feel lucky.

We spent the day sanding, painting, and sanding and painting. The faux fireplace is real and really done (except for the final insert but who’s counting?). I feel lucky to have a husband who takes my inspirations and helps turn them into real things for me to enjoy.

Even though it required seventeen trips to Lowes. On one of the last trips a man in the building aisle turned and said to us, “I’ve seen you both here so many times, you must be making something really cool.”

Five returned items and one new circ saw later, we have a beautiful faux fireplace complete with 45-degree angles. But I have something else in my heart. Trust.

On this St. Patrick’s Day, I am thinking about those who are lucky to live in trust. With their loved ones, their families and friends, their communities, and a hubby who will go to the ends of the world to build their dreams… or at least to Lowe’s seventeen times.    

As this year moves on, it is becoming clear to me that we need to build more trust. Between the headlines of mass shootings and college entrance bribings and children marching, to mention a few, I have to wonder if more Trust could help solve it all.

I would like to live in that world, a world where trust was the simple answer. As I sit here, at the end of the luckiest day of the year, I wish we could all be so lucky.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie
