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 9 – DAY 60 :: trust is love

2 Mar


{trust}  

It’s been a snowy beautiful winter day. Which means there was shoveling and car moving and a lot of movie viewing and HGTV watching to do. It’s the best way to spend a winter indoor Saturday.

Trust is love. And true love is when your husband participates in watching many Fixer Upper reruns without complaining. I mean, that’s got to be true love.  

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 59 :: trust brings sweet dreams

1 Mar

I spent the entire day at a workshop in Boston. It was amazing and now my eyes are sleepy and my brain is tired. So tonight this blog post will be a light one.



{trust}  

The good news is that I will have sweet dreams. Because when you push yourself it is invigorating, and at the end of the day, when you stay true to yourself you have sweet dreams. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 58 trust the adventure

28 Feb



{trust}  

I’m learning that things in life are so much easier when I trust the adventure… instead of trying to control the outcome. Maybe that’s part of what trust is teaching me this year, to relax.

It should be easy, right? And most of the time it is. But the discipline of trust is asking me to sharpen my relaxation skills and hone the power of patience and trust. Maybe those are two sides of the same coin = patience and trust.   

Even when I thought I was pretty good at patience… there is always another level to master. 

It’s like yoga, really. You first learn a few poses and think you are good at it. Then you find out there are ways to enhance your pose and take it the next level or hold it longer or stretch further – so you do. But then a new teacher shows you more moves, more poses, more balances and more… more… more…

I have a sneaking suspicion that Trust is taking me down that road and it is my job to relax and enjoy the adventure. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 57 trust is breathing

27 Feb



{trust}  

Trust is teaching me so many simple lessons, already, this year. Including watching the snow fall outside my window. It’s beautiful. And it does it’s job, falling to the ground powered by the wind and piling up on our back porch.

It’s so beautiful and one of the things I actually appreciate about being back on the east coast, the sounds of winter. Never thought I would say that.

It also makes me realize how much we need to trust the simple things that repeat over and over, like our breathing. In and out. It’s a simple act, one I hardly give notice to, but vital. I don’t think about it. I just do it. That seems to be what trust wants me to know… stop thinking, just do it.  

Breathe. Trust. Just do it.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 56 :: trust is changing course

26 Feb

{trust} 

We spent hours last night ordering glasses online. All sorts of eyeglasses. Sunglasses, readers, sunglasses that are readers…

My FSA money ends this week and the Lasik surgery I planned with my FSA money through some loophole wouldn’t work with my eye doctor. And it was too late to change it. 

So… being under the gun and almost out of time, we now have a lifetime supply of readers and sunglasses and sunglasses that are readers and contacts too. In the end, it all turned out well (including a nice pair of Ray Bans) but I wasn’t so happy about it a week ago.

Sometimes we have change course and trust the outcome. 

She says as she puts on a pair of glasses to see more clearly. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 55 :: trust your mother

25 Feb



{trust}  

The wind is blowing outside our window. It’s loud. It’s strong. It’s shaking the door like Mother Nature wants to come in. It has broken down phone lines and power lines across the state and even crushed cars and houses today. 

But we sit here safe inside… trusting that all is well. This has me thinking about Mother Nature and how much trust we need to place in her hands. 

It makes me wonder if we have returned the favor. I will be contemplating this as my head hits the pillow tonight and the wind raps at my window.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 54 :: never give up

24 Feb

{trust} 

Tonight is Oscar night and I think Lady Gaga may have just summed up what it means to trust. “If you have a dream, fight for it,” Lady Gaga said from the stage.

Trust is a mind game, isn’t it? And the best way to play is to believe in yourself.

Believe. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 53 :: trust, ease and grace

23 Feb

{trust} 

I didn’t sleep at all last night. Justin was up with a cold and neither one of us were able to sleep. So today I slept the afternoon away and even though I felt a large amount of guilt for not using that time to be productive or accomplish something important… it felt so good to sleep.

Sleep is amazing. And today, I’m just going to trust that sleep is what I need, with ease and grace and more sleep we can do amazing things.

So sleep it is! Sleep sweet sleep. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie
