I’ve heard I’d look good with a nose piercing but I’ll just keep adding holes to my ears 😝 hopefully I’ll find time to blog about this (and my previous) piercing experience soon!

Is that a jumbo jet or are you just happy to see me? (It actually is a B747) ✈️ Safe travels to everyone hitting the road, sky, or rail! Swipe to see my new travel buddy!

Where in the World has Jessica Been?

Hello again world!

It’s been quite some time since I’ve posted. I have a lot of explaining to do.

I’ve been taking a(n 8 month) break to refocus. Laying it all out there, at this time last year, I was looking for shallow validation: followers, likes, attention, a better closet… All the wrong reasons. It drove me to be competitive, but not in a healthy way. I made sure it wasn’t visible in my posts or my content, but it was the blog/Instagram driving me, instead of my passions driving the blog. It was exhausting, it was inauthentic, and it was shallow. Now that I have a handle on everything, I feel rebalanced and ready to try this again.

So as an update, in the past 8 months, I’ve:

  • Gone to Mexico on a cruise with 25 of my family members.
  • Decided to make the year going into my 30’s the beginning of my best life. For myself.
  • Earned a raise.
  • Spent some time with my family and showed them that Tennessee isn’t THAT bad (but it definitely isn’t Texas).

I can’t say that my future posts will be perfect, but I am not going to focus on my likes, comments, and followers. I’m back and better than before.

Be fearless,

Jessica

Live fearlessly,

    Yayyyy! So glad you’re back! And i am right there with you. Focusing on likes and follows can make the journey of your passion and purpose so draining. I am just going to focus on doing what i enjoy and let the rest fall into place. Can’t wait to see more posts from you! And we definitely have to hang out soon!
