Are you from Tennessee, because you’re the only ten I see. 😆 Spoiler alert: He actually is. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my butter (not a misspelling) half, my travel buddy (although Pappu and Justina are quickly catching up to you) and the most tolerable Lakers fan I know (30% of the time. GO CELTICS). You’re the only guy I know that not only sets and meets goals, but vastly exceeds every single one of them. Dang overachiever. Thanks for being a good instagram husband and gym-video guy, a great dog dad to @jarvisthegemini, and my best friend. I love you a waffle lot, @sammen89

PS: Don’t hate me for that last picture, it was too cute 🥺

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!
