I just had a flashback to my high school aerobics gym class. Every Friday we would do yoga and meditations (I know, I know - bougie AF). Our teacher would begin each meditation session by having us close our eyes, and saying that we are "exactly where we need to be." This has resonated with … Continue reading I’m Where I Need To Be
My husband and I are very systematic people. We thrive on routine and schedules. When we're on vacation, there's an Excel sheet that goes along with our days. Letting go is difficult for us. A few months ago, we took a trip to Texas, which included a few days in Austin. While there, we were … Continue reading On Blank Canvas
Last weekend, I went to session two of the work on purpose fellowship and I discovered both my strengths and my values. To catch ya'll up: my top five strengths were harmony, communication, empathy, input and consistency. My top three values... are non-compliance (hahaha), physical health, and humor. This weekend, I, Jeanette, learned that I … Continue reading My Values Aren’t For the Greater Good

Despite all of the life changes, I've been trying to stay true to … Continue reading Five Thangs Friday #2

One of the highlights for me was … Continue reading Five Thangs Friday
Freaking out is my speciality. I freak out about everything: the weather, how much time I need to get to the airport, how many eggs are left in the fridge. My husband, on the other hand, is the coolest cucumber you'll ever meet, and this has helped me grow. He always says to think about … Continue reading But…Will It Kill You?
