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 229 create :: flow

17 Aug

{trust}  

I am enamored with flowers. How they grow, bloom, unfold. It’s no wonder that FLOW is the root of the word flower. I am also enamored with the trust required to bloom, whether you are a flower or a human. We must trust where we are planted, what we are fed, how we are nourished and weather patterns that are out of our control.

And yet, still, we bloom. It’s quite amazing really. 

So tonight’s thoughts on trust are to create flow, whether you are a flower or a human, and what where it takes you. 

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 226 :: bloom beauty bloom!

14 Aug

{trust}  

It’s the height of summer and the flowers are still in bloom. The little rose bush outside my window still looks at me every morning with pink blooms. And I notice it. Mostly because it’s bright pink but also because it stands out against a green backdrop. 

It’s a good lesson in being different and uniquely beautiful. Sometimes the most beautiful things are the ones that aren’t afraid to stand out.   

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 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
