JAMIE'S BLOG – YEAR 9 dreams – 27 days to go

4 Dec


{trust}  

There are 27 days left of The Promise 365!

I’m off to bed and looking forward to a good night’s rest. As I lay my head down on my pillow, I hear these words, “Hold onto your dreams!” 

This blog has been nine years of discovery, adventure, and dreams. But the best dream of all is the next one you have. 

Stay true to you. Trust your desires. And go after your dreams.  

Trust me!
More tomorrow.Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 321 :: blend – 45 days to go

16 Nov

{trust}  

There are 45 days left of The Promise 365! Tonight I celebrate blending. 

I just opened up my brand new Vitamix blender this week. I couldn’t be more excited about it and I also find it quite ironic. In my first year of blogging and my very first promise, I bought my first blender, an Oster. It didn’t work out so well, as you can read here. Now, in my last year of blogging I find myself with the blender of my dreams, the much dreamed of Vitamix.

I found it on sale (of course). Also, another point of irony and juxtaposition of Year 1 and Year 9 of this blog. I no longer have to make or break a promise when I want to shop or buy something. But the lesson will always be with me. 

My first blender taught me the power of whole foods, green smoothies and raw cacao nibs. This blender is much more powerful, graceful and effective. I would like to think I am too, somehow, after spending the last nine years reflecting on life and love every single night.   

If I have learned anything, it is this. We are all a blend of our promises and pursuits, success and strife, dreams and determination. So blend up something good! 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 288 :: dream a little

17 Oct

{trust}  

It was a surprise work at home day today, due to the massive power outage across New England. Like a snow day without the snow. We did have massive winds and overnight rain and enough gust to blow the trees down. But all was well as it should be in life. 

Sometimes have a day outside your normal routine helps gain perspective. To open your mind a little… or a lot.

Dream a little, live a lot.  Trust life.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 284 :: trust

13 Oct

{trust}  

I’m listening to an amazing program from MindValley. It’s about reprogramming your mind for total success and in the latest presentation, the message was to make what is unknown known and to make what is familiar unfamiliar. 

The timing couldn’t be more perfect. Today we started our cleanse (even though Brady started his yesterday). This means my familiar sweets, chocolates, and sugars will now have to become unfamiliar for at least a few weeks. Until then, I will make vegetables and green shakes my familiars. 

Here’s to the next 40 days!
Trust what you know, and know what you want. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 252 :: trust in your dreams
{trust}  

It’s funny this thing called trust. Whenever I look for inspiring quotes or trust bombs online it all comes back to personal relationships and not getting hurt, or pushing through the hurt, or learning to trust again after being hurt. 

Except for this one by Hemingway: 

.        
This exercise in trust, so far this year, hasn’t been about trusting others or not getting hurt it has actually been about trusting myself and my dreams. And my goals. And who I am and what I want. Funny how none of those things have to do with others, isn’t it?

Maybe trust needs a rebranding campaign. One of faith, love, and determination and not accepting the norm. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 232 :: buzz

20 Aug

{trust}  

I’ve been thinking about bees much lately. Mostly because we have a resident beehive in our back patio area and Brady likes chasing them… until they chase him back and then, well, he doesn’t like it.

The bees remind me to keep buzzing after our dreams and to let the sweet nectar of our dreams fuel our pursuits. 

Like a bee to a flower…
Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 227 :: dream trust

15 Aug

{trust}  

I’ve decided that we all need a Dream Trust. A trustworthy set of friends and supporters who see our vision even brighter than we ever could on our own. A Dream Trust is a small group of humans (maybe one…and maybe just a trustworthy dog too) who sits next to your dream and waters it, tends to it, and watches it grow.

Too many dreams get squashed right before they take root.  

If we all looked after our dreams and maybe those of one other person, it would be like focusing on the sunshine-to-rain quotient. Or, what it takes for seeds to sprout, grow and bloom.

Instead of focusing on the manufactured news or depressing moment of the day, or the what’s-wrong-with-the-world-now moment, the Dream Trust would hold tightly to all that is possible, even for one minute a day. Which adds up to hours, and then days, and years and well, many dreams realized.

And while not every dream is meant to come true (some are just meant to introduce us to our next dream) every dream is worth a Dream Trust. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 140 :: trust in all of it

21 May


{trust}  

Ohhhhh, my body is screaming at me. But one of my dreams this year is to get back into shape and trust that my body can handle it. So here I am, sore. And trusting in my dreams, all of them. 

You can tooooooooooo. Trust in your dreams, all of them.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 139 :: trust in your dreams

20 May



{trust}  

Tonight I am tired in the best of ways… my muscles are sore from a little OrangeTheory workout. As I was running on the treadmill tonight I thought about how much it helps to have a coach. Someone to push your forward. Someone to prevent you from automatically stopping, or stopping too soon.

Dreams are that way too. 

We need a dream coach as much as we need one for workouts. Someone who trusts in your dreams more than you do. Someone who won’t let you quit. 

SO… Let your dreams rise and your fears fall. You got this.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 132 :: trust your inner unicorn

13 May

{trust}  

Oh, trust. You are sending me on an adventure this year. Every year starts with a promise but I never really know where it is going. I am happy to say that tonight trust has brought me to a really good place and some really good news. Namely, my sister came out of surgery today with flying colors and the best prognosis possible. What a relief.

These unicorn moments in time always make me stop and think, sometimes pause. These moments also put everything on hold including our breath until we know the outcome. It reminds me that life is short and we have to trust our dreams.

Let them sweep you off your feet.   

  You have time and you got this.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie
