Experience. Strength. Hope. (Hope for what?)

Experience. Strength. Hope. This week, I’m embracing the emotional rollercoaster. I’m not even thinking about the hangover (yet). At this exact moment, I’ve been having a tug of war with myself. Allow the emotions to run or stuff them into my safe place. I’m…

Slay the Dragon. Smell the Flowers.

My life is all about setting and crushing goals. And then every once in a while sharing that journey with the world. 🌱 Climbing international corporate ladders was a 6 year process. 🌱 Owning my own company was a 2 year process. 🌱 Ironman finish line was…

Where can I love myself just a bit more?

“Jess, you can push me away but I’m not going anywhere…” I’m bumbling through a side step. I’m doing the best I can. A few old habits are dying hard. And it’s the first time that I’m being called out, consistently… others are noticing…

When numbers represent home: Unit 3070.

Last August, my person (my mommabear) went in for a routine check-up. They asked her to stay for extra tests. The next day, they had quintuple bypass surgery. Since my mommabear refused to create a living will, POA, or any of that stuff, I…

Recalibrate and DEFINE a new normal.

*I’ve been writing whilst off-grid. Amature move is putting the words in an email rather than a word document. Autosave apparently didn’t work. It’s a shame as I had some pretty good flows. Keeping tabs on my emotional processing as I move through this…

“Jess, this is for when you move back to the USA and get your own place.” I’m entering a new chapter and this is the thought that keeps creeping into my mind. During the moments of quiet, the voice of my mommabear comes in….

Honouring my existence on Father’s Day

Honouring people is easy. Celebrating people is easy. What’s not easy is coming to terms that sometimes the people we love are in so much pain that they cause us a great deal of pain. AND what’s very difficult is focusing on self-care to…

When a friend becomes family

The Universe has been noisy lately. All messages pointing to travel. I’m in the middle of building a hustle. My priority is to ingrain two 60-min workout sessions into my soul. My second priority is to build this new hustle… grind now, enjoy later….

Surrounded​ by LOVE because I AM LOVE

“Hey, can we talk about something?” “Of course, what happened?” I LOVE LOVE LOVE that my life is filled with people that respond like this. For years, the response was “What’s wrong?” A response that puts me in a place of guilt and wanting…

Prayers Go Up, Blessings Come Down

A statement that keeps surfacing is ‘do not allow others to block your blessings.’ This is such a powerful statement. I used to call people season, reason, lifetime. Simplifying to this new mantra: BYE! DO NOT BLOCK MY BLESSINGS simply makes me laugh. A…
