JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 160 :: trust your magic

9 Jun

{trust}  

The Boston Bruins just won and forced a game seven in the NHL finals! But the really impressive data point is that I made it through the entire game. I usually go to bed before these games are over.

Somehow this team found their magic tonight. It makes me reflect on the power of our own personal magic — and the amazing things that transpire when we trust it. 

Trust the magic inside of you, it will ignite your future. 
Trust me!

More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 155 :: trust in the process

4 Jun

{trust}  

Here I am back in Boston. Just yesterday I was sitting with my feet in the sand and listening to the ocean waves lap up against the shore. How quickly life can change.

So now, I must rest, and relax, and reflect. It is after these moments in life when things change so fast that we must slow down. And trust the process. 

Those are the steps that allow the flower to bloom. Rest through the winter, unfold into the summer. Trust me. 

More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 133 :: trust there is always a reason

14 May

{trust}  

We just returned from a night with the Boston Pops. It was a pre-birthday present for Justin who is a huge Star Wars fan and constantly quotes lines from the movies (do or do not there is no try) or drops them casually into a conversation (fly casual). The event melded the live musical score and the classic movie Star Wars A New Hope into one amazing experience with a movie screen hovering above the live orchestra in Symphony Hall. I have never seen the movie in this light and I have never appreciated the music behind it so much before.

The two on their own are masterpieces. When combined they are absolute magic. 

It makes me so deeply appreciate the gifts and talents of those who create great works of art, stories, cinema, cinematic drama, music and more…. They are the stuff gifts are made of, they are also the stuff life is made for – appreciation.

We all have gifts. What a shame to not share yours with the world.

  And that brings me to trust.
Trust there is always a reason to shine.   

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 100 :: trust through the final inning

11 Apr

{trust} 

What. A. Game. The Red Sox finally pick up a win (at home!!) and we were there to witness it. Not just the final score, but the fans in the stands throughout the game, the waves traveling all through the stadium at key moments, and the incredible come-from-behind win at the bottom of the ninth inning.

It was a perfect way for us to start of the Red Sox season being fans, and it was a pretty incredible reminder of the power of trust.  

Sometimes in order to win, you have to trust all the way through the final inning. Thank you, Red Sox, for this lesson in trust on Day 100 of the year.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 96 :: trust new adventures

7 Apr

{trust} 

We have created a spring monster. This morning Brady whined and ran around the house until we figured out what he wanted …to go back to the dog park. 

So we did, and the very first dog family we met at the park had a little puppy Vizsla. It was like looking through a time machine and remembering what Brady looked like, played like and acted like seven years ago. 

It has me thinking about new adventures and how bringing Brady home was such an adventure for us. Here’s Brady’s very first blog post from way back. Justin and I trusted that Brady was the perfect addition to our little pack way back then, even though we were still in the middle of our mobile cross-country adventure. But sometimes you have to stretch yourself and try new adventures. 

And of course, trust the power to live… and those little puppy moments. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 63 :: trust is officially…

5 Mar

{trust} 

It’s official. We have Massachusetts license plates. There’s no turning back now! As Justin said today as we left the RMV, “We collect license plates like people collect baseball cards.”

It’s true. We have a few now in our possession… Florida, Oregon, Washington, Massachusetts… and counting. Well, hopefully not counting. We are trusting that we will be in this state for a while. 

Trust used to be moving around the country year after year for us. Chasing the next opportunity and adventure.  But now, trust feels a lot more like being in the place where you are. Trusting we will be here for a while but we are definitely here now. 

At least that’s what the license plates say.
Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 62 :: trust is neighbors helping neighbors

4 Mar



{trust}  

Oh, snow! We woke up to the car being buried in 15 inches of snow. Just a small Boston problem but that is what snow plows are for! Except they missed us and our parking spots while I was on a work call so we had to shovel the cars out ourselves. Or, I should say, JUSTIN had to shovel the cars out.

There was a neighbor who lent a shovel, which was very nice. It makes me think about the power of trust and neighbors. Something that just isn’t as necessary as it used to be (why borrow an egg when Amazon can deliver one?).

I think we help each other in different ways now, through social media recommendations and email requests. But sometimes it’s nice to have some good old fashioned neighborly helping hands.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 219 :: joy is a fan

6 Aug
{in a heat wave}

It. Is. Hot. 

It’s almost midnight and still 80+ degrees. My ceiling fans are my new best friends. I wish I had twenty more of them… in fact, I might go buy twenty more fans tomorrow. Because in a heat wave a fan is pure joy.

It’s my own personal sauna.
How hot it is.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 209 :: joy is a new home

28 Jul
{iwelcome home}

My plane touched down in Boston tonight and I moved into our new home. It doesn’t have any furniture yet, except for the air mattress I bought at Target on my way here, of course.

However, once I arrived, the new place did have a little surprise in it… a steam shower. A good old-fashioned 1980’s style, sit-in, steam room. Somehow I missed this when I toured the place. I thought it was just a shower in the downstairs bathroom. What a joyful surprise. I don’t know if we will ever use it… but, what a fun surprise indeed.

Overall, the place has a lot of charm and potential. All future forward dreams too. And isn’t that what joy is made of?

Welcome home, Joy!

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 196 :: joy is a hello

14 Jul
{new adventures}

Joy is saying hello because saying goodbye is too hard.

I am on my way to Boston, on to our next adventure, and my heart’s journey. This is what joy is bringing up and teaching me, to look forward and not look back.

Three years ago, I followed my bliss and it led us to Washington. And now, joy calls. You would think joy and bliss would be the same thing, or very, very close to it. It turns out, they live on different coasts. My bliss lives in Washington but my joy is calling me back to Boston.

It’s a return to the heart in so many ways. The truth is (and I know this after living in a myriad of different places) that “home” is a place that lives inside of us, inside our heart. But our heart’s desire sometimes needs us, in fact requires us, to go on a journey.

Joy is a matter of the heart.

My heart is grateful to all that Washington brought us. The family, the food, the fun. A little piece of us will always be in Washington too, the final resting place for our dear Pup after seventeen years of being man’s best friend. He will not be with us on this next journey but he will always be in our hearts.

And now, the future is calling us forward. On to new adventures!!

Goodbye, for now, Left Coast.
Hello, Right Coast.
Follow your bliss and create your joy!

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie
