It all comes down to trust

Sunday, November 24, 2019

Greetings from Jersey.. it's rainy and dreary and here in NJ and we are no doubt gonna get soaked at the game, but we are going anyway.. putting my trust in there will be some fun memories made despite it all.

Yesterday started with an awesome #cko workout, then breakfast and a day of errands with hubby.. off to the Verizon store, 2 hours I'll never get back.. 🤦‍♀️ then off to the furniture store to start getting ideas for our new dining room set, but instead of ideas, we found "the one".. I saw it first and instantly just knew.. hubby was wandering around and had seen another possible one but when I called him over it was unanimous.. it was EXACTLY what I had been looking for without knowing what it was I had been looking for. From there the blind store, where once again, the moment I saw it, I knew..

I rely very highly on my instincts. I have learned to trust my feelings and I know an "exactly right" versus a "that will work". If I go to a store and see something, I either have to have it, or I walk away without a second thought. This trust doesn't apply to just my shopping habits, it is the basis on how I live my life.

After our shopping excursion we went to the movies and dinner.. We saw A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood .. it was based on one specific relationship between Mr Rogers and the journalist who had been assigned to write up his mini bio as a hero, one of 40 for Esquire magazine in 1998. Mr. Rogers, the eternal optimist, who searched for the good in everything and everyone and used everything in his power to gently guide others to feel and see the same things. LLoyd Vogel, the cynic, critic of all things, with a tendency to dig looking for the ugly underneath.. It was a very powerful portrayal how the simplest gestures, a sincere look really conveying to the person in your gaze that I "truly see you" and I like "YOU"... a kind word, whispered at the right moment it needed to be so that it would be received.. delivered once the trust had been established, once they realized they were being seen and respected.

I personally believe without trust, nothing will be accomplished in the way it was intended. I believe without trust others can not see what you would like for them to see or even consider your point of view to try to understand things in the way you understand them. I believe without trust, we can never be our own best selves.

Hope you have an amazing day.. no matter the weather, or the final score, I trust that I will have a fantastic day and that my actions and choices will have a direct impact on those results.

    A very moving blog... "TRUST"
    a world without trust would be ever so lonely.

    @500 miles north of you up the Connecticut River we goat a couple of inches of snow..
    then rain that washed some away .. warm enough that I doubt it will last very long.

    Hope the game, no matter the score, bestows upon you some good memories.
    it is said, "It isn't whether you win or lose, it is how you play the game."

    What a blessed person you are.. to so quickly find just what you were looking to find.
    Happy Sunday.
