JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 231 :: trust

19 Aug

{trust}  

I spent the day at eTail Boston, with brand marketers and acquisition marketers and eCommerce gurus.  What we will do for a brand we love! Shoes, paint, clothing, cars… if there is one thing that ties the marketing suite together it is passion. Because, before all the ROI and ROAS and ROE data, there is love, passion and a reason to follow your heartstrings with your wallet. 

I find it ironic that I sit here tonight writing about love and trust and following your heart — after being in eCommerce meetings all day long. But it just seems obvious, that we love what love, we trust what we trust, and we trust what we love. Even if it is a brand.

In business and in life, follow the trail that leads you to your heart. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 230 :: love and trust

18 Aug

{trust}  

Today I watched the 2018 documentary, Won’t You Be My Neighbor? It’s a retrospective of Mr. Fred Rodgers, or what I knew as a little kid to be Mister Rodgers Neighborhood. 

It’s amazing how much of his message from that show are still with me, and I imagine so many others from his 30 years on television. But it was more than insightful for me to revisit it today through the eyes of an adult. In fact, it made me cry. Not just a few nostalgic tears, but rivers of tears dripping down my face.

It feels to me that our world needs another Mister Rodgers. Maybe an updated version to some degree because certainly, the world has changed. As I watched the documentary today I couldn’t help but wish that the void he left was filled, on television and now, social media. I remember being glued to the television watching puppets and actors and Mister Rodgers himself deliver the message of the day. Now, looking back I realize I had no idea how honest he was being, how insightful his teachings were and how safe he was making me feel in this very big world.

One of his quotes strikes a chord of trust with me today: 

Love and trust, in the space between what’s said and what’s heard in our life, can make all the difference in this world.”

Everything comes back to those two words: love and trust. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 221 :: trust the present

9 Aug

{trust}  

Tonight we watched the movie, “The Art of Racing In The Rain.” I cried through the entire movie. It’s a movie for humans and especially for humans who love dogs. It’s especially emotionally draining for anyone who recently lost their dog, but then again, there really is no moratorium on the heartbreak of losing your best friend. 

I cried mostly because of Pup. He has been gone for a little over a year now but he is still so present in our hearts and memories. I think that’s the thing about dogs, they are forever connected to the heartstrings of the family tree.  

One of the lines that stuck with me most from the movie was: “The best drivers don’t dwell on the future or the past. The best drivers focus only on the present.” 

That is what our pets do for us, refocus us on the present moment. The wagging of the tail, the panting of the tongue, the leaping with joy, the barking and the snoring with great verve. They are the best teachers of the present moment. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 190 :: trust in faith, hope and love

9 Jul

{trust}  

Justin is playing songs for me tonight, on an album called Faith, Hope and Love. It’s a flashback to our youth and a few familiar tunes. But it’s more than that, it’s a message of love which has me thinking about trust.

In trust, we intrinsically have all three: faith, hope and love.

Trust needs faith to stay the course, hope to stay inspired and love to fuel the mission. In trust, we move forward in faith, hope and love. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 189 :: trust the belly laughs

8 Jul

{trust}  

My sides hurt from laughing. It may be the most beautiful feeling in the world, laughter. The kind that makes your belly hurt. It hurts so good.

Tonight it came at the hand of cards, a few margaritas and some music. It’s our last night of Jaynane’s visit and it has been a fun visit, so what better way to celebrate a last hurrah than with love and laughter?  

Sometimes the best games to play are the ones that make us laugh, with each other. If there’s anything I trust, it is the best medicine of a belly laugh. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 175 :: trust the path in front of you

24 Jun

{trust}  

It is Monday. A new week has started and everything is in front of us. Besides needing a lot more sleep from a weekend of super fun family time, I am ready for what’s ahead.

But the lessons of the past are always close to my heart. I suppose that is what solidifies wisdom. One wise lesson from my first year of blogging keeps popping up again this year. It’s love. Because everything comes back to love.

In a way, Trust is teaching me to trust my wisdom. That which I already know. How nice to be reminded to trust that which we already have, lessons we have already learned and the pieces of ourselves that we have already found. 

Cherish the lesson behind you, trust the path in front of you.  

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 174 :: trust in mondays

23 Jun

{trust}  

It’s the end of the weekend and tomorrow is Monday. Which is equal parts sad and inspiring. Especially coming off of a weekend filled with family and friends and a harborside wedding.

Much like a wedding, Mondays are new beginnings. They both hold the promise of the future and the hope of tomorrow. The secret is to fill each of them with love.   

So here’s to marriage and Mondays – the hope of the future. Work from love, play with love, be in love with your life. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

22 Jun

{trust}  

Tonight’s blog is coming in late because the night was dedicated to love and family — and the wedding of Jill and Brian. It was a beautiful night that reminded me of love — specifically, that love is family and family is love. 

So love your family. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.
