JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 280 :: stubborn trust

9 Oct


{trust}  

We had our palms read when I was in New Orleans this past weekend. The opportunities are everywhere around Jackson Square. I was told I had a long, strong lifeline and that I am stubborn and hard-headed. Whether you believe in this or not, it’s amazing how what someone else tells you sticks in your mind. I have been thinking about what she said and I have come to this conclusion. I am stubborn. You have to be to blog every single day, to make a promise, to follow up and most important for me this year – to trust.

Trusting is a stubborn game to play. You have to ignore what others say, you have to defy the odds and you have to stick with your gut. That is trust. 

So stick with it 
Be stubborn.
And own it.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 265 :: trust fall

22 Sep

{trust}  

Fall’s colors are popping all around me. On my drive home today I spotted pops of crimson red and canary yellow making their way to the tips of the trees lining the highway. It’s Fall and it’s leaf-peeping seeing in New England. 

It’s a good time to fall back in love too… with your life, your dreams and your hear’s desires. Trust fall. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 240 :: all shall be well

28 Aug

{trust}  

The world lost a bright light today and my dear teacher. Tonight I sit here reflecting on the words that she gave me for precisely moments like these. All shall be well. 

This is not the first time I have lost someone I loved but it is always hard to say goodbye. Even though I know that my teacher and her lessons will remain with me for a lifetime, and I am part of a lineage of students that will carry on her wisdom, it is still not easy. 

If there is one thing I know to do now, it is to look for the magic. There is magic in everyday life and there is magic in our dear relationships that continue way past the final breaths we breathe.

As my teacher would sing to me and I will sing into the future: 

All Shall Be Well, 
All Shall Be Well, 
And All Matter of Things, 
Shall Be Well, 
Shall Be Well, 
Shall Be Well. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

11 Aug

{trust}  

It’s Sunday night and that means Monday will happen… tomorrow. It’s on Sunday night that the blues set in for the weekend is over. So tonight, I say, shine your light. 

Trust your bright light and shine on.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 220 :: trust floats

8 Aug

{trust}  

It’s the height of summer here in Boston. The days are hot and the nights are long. But it won’t always be that way, as we all know, too soon the leaves will begin to fall. So I am holding onto these last weeks of brilliant beauty in the flowers all around me. The birds singing in the morning. The beach waves on the weekend. It’s all so beautiful with the filter of summer. 

And maybe it’s just the understanding that summer will not last forever that makes each day so bright. Football is already on television in the form of preseason games, but still, it is the first sign of summer’s slow down. 

So tonight I hold the beauty of summer in my heart and trust in my head there will be so many things to look forward to this fall. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 187 :: trust the small stuff

6 Jul

{trust}  

This year of Trust is teaching me to trust the small stuff.

For instance, we watched Rocketman tonight at an airconditioned movie theater in order to escape the sweltering 90-degree heat. We arrived just in time to miss a massive thunderstorm that we could hear pelting the roof as we waited for the previews to begin. We made it just in time. 

Trust has a way of moving us to exactly where we are supposed to be when we are supposed to be there. If only we trust it.  

Trust is small, but the impact is big. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 165 :: trust you have what you need

14 Jun

{trust}  

Tonight’s thought on trust… from a very sleepy brain…

Trust that you already have what you need, the world is big enough for all the dreams. As big as the deep blue ocean and endless blue sky. 

More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 24 :: be like the billy goat

24 Jan


{trust}  

Someone very wise recently told me to think of the billy goat. 

Because trust is like the billy goat – surefooted and confidently marching up a craggy, rocky mountainside. The billy goat doesn’t look down or examine all the potential pitfalls of their path. They move forward with swift confidence and surefooted fire.

I am trusting that this message will get to those who need it most tonight. Whatever it is in your way, or in your sights, be like the billy goat. Trust your footing, one step at a time. 

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 1 :: new year, new promise

1 Jan


{trust}  

It’s baaaaaaaaack!!

It’s a new year and a new day with a new promise. 2019 is the 9th year of this blogging promise and while it seems like I have already explored so many BIG issues (self-care, love, abundance, peak performance, kindness, bliss, yoga, joy….) it’s time to explore something new. 

Trust. 

As in trusting the process, trusting myself, trusting life and allowing all that is to be, well, to be. Trust is a good word. It’s a strong and serious word. 

Trust: a firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something.

I’m sure trust will come with many lessons that I cannot even imagine as I sit here at the beginning of the year. It’s kind of scary, actually. You see, every time I make a promise something happens. Something big. Something I can’t quite see this early in the year but it’s out there waiting for me to walk the path and explore the possibilities.

For instance, when I made a promise not to shop I found the power of love. When I made a promise of “peak performance” I received a year of surgeries and ended up with the NIKE swoosh in a series of scars across my chest. Last year, when I made a promise for “joy” I found a new job, new city and new adventure on the east coast. I never know what will happen, but I will report back here every day.

So today, this is my report. 

As I walked into the NEW YEAR I did not expect to tumble into 2019. But I did. Right down the stairs. I have been lying down ever since with my right foot elevated, covered in ice. There were a few Advils mixed in there too. 

It was not what I had planned for my last day of vacation and first day of the year. I had lists of things to do and stuff to organize and prepare before going back to work. My foot had another idea, apparently. It wanted to be raised high in the sky atop a mountain of pillows for the entire day, pulsating, swollen and bruised. 

The swelling has gone down now that I am in my pajamas and ready for bed. While my foot is still sore I can’t help but think of the irony. Day One of this promise and I am laid up, on a bed, forced to rest. I can only TRUST that this is what my body needed today, a little R&R, a lot of sleep and a few movies to calm my nerves.

So, the first lesson of this Year of Trust is to look before you leap. And, if you tumble, be ready for a trust fall.


Here’s to trusting the adventure ahead and ALLOWING all that is ready to find me, to magically appear. (That, and a smooth path without any bumps or tumbles would be nice too!).Lovemore,
Jamie
