JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 188 :: trust the beauty

7 Jul

{trust}  

We drove the south coastline today winding through little seaside towns and beautiful picturesque downtowns and stores. It made me think about my very first promise not to shop, because, I was shopping in the most wonderful sense of the word. 

Jaynane and I were together, shopping and oohing and ahhing at all the little beautiful things looking for dresses and skirts and jewelry and presents. This is a partnership I know well, it is one my Mama Sling taught to me. To appreciate beauty. Not in the sense of the torrid and turbulent definition of beauty standards but to appreciate the beauty within. 

Because beauty is a feeling. 

I used to think beauty was a very specific thing, a look, a shape, a fabric, a cut, a design, an art. But it’s really the art of feeling. And when we feel we are alive. We are here. We are present. 

Which is the best present of all. 
Trust the beauty within. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 185 :: trust and be brave

4 Jul

{trust}  

Oh, beautiful. It was a spectacular skyline tonight looking over Boston, the Harbor Islands, and the South Shore as fireworks lit up the heavens. It made me think of the origin of fireworks, the bravery and the boldness of what it must have taken to define Boston and this country.

Bravery is a call to action but it originates from a mission of trust.
Happy Fourth of July.  

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 184 :: trust and believe

3 Jul

{trust}  

It was Pops practice night on the Esplanade and we were there.  The fireworks will be tomorrow but we got the same show including the Queen herself, Queen Latifa.

Before the Pops and the fireworks light up the fourth it was fun to watch the stars light up the night sky. Even sans fireworks spectacular, it was still magical.  

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

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
