My name is Jessica Marie Corvo. Chicago is ground zero for my story of domestic violence. Chicago was a place of extreme pain, isolation and suffering in silence. Chicago used to cause great disharmony within. Tomorrow is the day I officially reframe how I view CHICAGO. Chicago is now a place that I call home, a place where I’ve worked extremely hard to find (build) a community of *empowered* love bugs. Chicago is the city where I launch my group fitness career. And tomorrow is day 1 of celebrating all the work that I’ve done.
I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be. I’ve slayed my demons. I’ve loved myself so hard. I allowed conflict for growth and I tried so hard to choose me every.single.time.
What seeds are being watered? What truths are being accepted? What story am I telling myself today? Valid questions that deserve time for pause. Or time for action.

I had moments of clarity in recognizing that I’mContinue reading “My soul keeps attracting magical people”
One of the challenges of the month is to push out words, daily. The easiest time for me to push out words is when I first wake up. When I catch myself in the space between sleeping and awake. It’s when I am in flow. When my conscious mind allows my subconscious to take theContinue reading “Mental Health: Reflecting on stability”
May is mental health awareness month. A month that is SUPER important for me. I spent over a year openly sharing my journey of embracing, understanding, accepting, growing from domestic violence. During that journey, I was called all sorts of names and labelled all sorts of things. At first, I would have massive reactions toContinue reading “Embrace your Magic. Realize your Purpose.”
The last few months I’ve been actively allowing myself to get lost in emotion. I wasn’t familiar with my various states. I was conditioned that my needs were irrelevant. My wants were irrelevant. Everything is for family and don’t I dare step out of line. Each time that I even dreamed of speaking my peace,Continue reading “Control your emotions? Embrace your emotions?”
