I opened my heart to attract my tribe

I have been surrounding myself with water signs… and air signs… and then the occasional fire signs. Typically my world is fire signs. I think it’s easiest to dance when surrounded by fire signs! Fire signs like to seek adventure. Experiences. Lots of them. There is no such thing as a bad experience. It’s either somethingContinue reading “I opened my heart to attract my tribe”

Jess, are you healed yet?

Switching gears from morning rambles to reflective afternoon nuggets. This question keeps surfacing. To be honest, I’m not sure how to answer it; JESS, ARE YOU HEALED YET? On one side, it’s a loaded question. Is healing ever really a start to finish process? Or is it an on-going and constantly evolving mission? Follow upContinue reading “Jess, are you healed yet?”

Global Goodwill Ambassador

A month ago, I was acknowledged. I was validated. I was honoured for some pretty intense [humanitarian] work. About a year ago, I decided to turn into my pain and confront a troubled relationship. During the process, I was able to identify who was helping me heal and who was helping my oppressor cause additionalContinue reading “Global Goodwill Ambassador”

Resilience: The art of being a Lighthouse

There are so many thoughts racing through my mind at the moment. I believe the Universe is urging me to connect the dots… the dots being mental wellness and the corporate world. Are the two related? If yes, how? To me, it’s about being a lighthouse. And to be a lighthouse, one must have heightenedContinue reading “Resilience: The art of being a Lighthouse”

Observe the Body, Master the Mind

Most know that when I get on the gratitude train, it’s because I’m working through a hardship. Perhaps something small like a misstep or perhaps something threatened my bubble of magic. Typically my way out of the darkness is writing a buttload of letters of gratitude. This is a phenomenal habit but it’s not helpfulContinue reading “Observe the Body, Master the Mind”

It’s time to stop running & start planting roots

I’ve been thinking of ways to acknowledge this season of healing and celebrate my existence. This tattoo symbolises so many things… the pictures capture just about every single emotion possible… I love my bio family with something fierce. My love will never fade. I’m OK that they do not love me in a way that IContinue reading “It’s time to stop running & start planting roots”

You gave love freely and without agenda. You simply loved & You loved really hard.

Dear Jess, This year was one for the books. It’s a year that defined you in so many ways. A few weeks ago, you described the year in a single word BETRAYAL. I’d like to correct you. The year can be summed up with a different word, LOVE. You found love where it didn’t exist. You createdContinue reading “You gave love freely and without agenda. You simply loved & You loved really hard.”

Conversations with self whilst others help me look for my smile…

Sometimes all I need is having someone smile when my name pops up on their phone.  I have friends sprinkled around the world. I’m extremely blessed because some of these friends have become my family. Actually, all of them are in my heart space. All.of.them. They know who they are. They know what they meanContinue reading “Conversations with self whilst others help me look for my smile…”

Broken vs Evil… is there a difference?

I started this entry on August 31. A few days after I left ‘home’. My mother was having open heart surgery, meaning I had to deal with the most manipulative person in the entire world (her son). Her son had distorted her reality to a point where she was already a shell. When she’s notContinue reading “Broken vs Evil… is there a difference?”

My higher self is my best friend

I’m not even going to pretend. Most of my life is in autopilot. This has served me well because I cannot remember the last time that I was in normal situations. When greeted with dysfunction, I tighten my ponytail, smile, and navigate the sea like a 70+-year-old sailor. It’s NOT my first rodeo and IContinue reading “My higher self is my best friend”
