Lessoned Learned in 2019: Less Planning More Living
I am a planner, always have been but in 2019 I kinda threw my hands up in the air & have gone with the flow & it's been the best year yet. Life wasn't meant for us to stress or cry over, it was meant to be lived everyday doing something that brings you joy. It doesn't have to be work, but take time everyday to do something you love doing. Don't do anything that doesn't bring you happiness, it's a waste of your precious time.
Surround yourself with people who make you belly laugh. My girl friends, sister and Dan are those people for me. They make me laugh until I am red in the face and cramping in the belly.
Fall in love with a new hobby, for me it became working out and drinking tea.. is that a hobby?? Enjoy the chaos, appreciate the surprises & accept when things don't go our way. When I am acting a fool over something so silly I say "Jenn people are dying, this is nothing, please slow your roll." And I remember that work is work, I don't cure cancer, no one is dying on my table.
I give everything the best effort & most attention I can, shit happens we are all human & made beautifully imperfect! Once you can accept that & roll with the punches life becomes a lot more fun promise!!

I loved this book. I love her, I love her honesty and she inspired me to walk away from toxicity and to hold onto faith beacause God is always working behind the scenes. We may not feel it through the pain, but we need to go through it to get to where we are meant to be. Her book sold out on Amazon and was #1 on the iBooks list the first week of the release. I am so happy for her. She built an amazing clothing company that she threw herself into during times of pain and it has been so successful. Her mom has done an amazing job with it. I think the book will help a lot of people face their past, confront their ghosts and hopefully move on with their heads held high with a new horizon in sight.
Valentine's Day (for me Galentine's) is upon us. I for one, do not celebrate but I know a lot of you lovelies out there do! You have 5 days, did you shop?! Well, luckily if you are an Amazon Primer, you still have a change to get some amazing gifts for your loves!
Ah the first Friday & blog of the new DECADE. Can you believe it's 2020?? Wasn't it just 2000.. I'm confused. Well I can say in 20 years I have learned a LOT. If you haven't, you may wanna take a look at yourself. haha.Â
I had a convo with my friend a few weeks back and she was saying how she was not sure if she wanted to have kids because of her anxiety and letting other people control her emotions too much. This was me a few years ago. When I say a few, like TWO.Â
I was always emotional and let other people's actions control my emotions, it was not healthy. I had to stop and realize it was me, no one else who was making me feel the way I was; a rollercoaster of anger, depression, anxiety and rejection.Â
