Hello and welcome to my blog. I’ve always been a curious mind on all things “human” and I’ve always craved to live the best, most meaningful life EVER. As life is continuously passing by, I’ve realized that at the age of 32 I still don’t have it all figured out.
Throughout my life, I’ve constantly chased unanswered questions and struggled to find MY meaning and purpose. Every year seems like it’ll be a significant year, but this year as well as the last was very much linear. As I’m sitting here on my patio listening to Spotify (song: Novo Amor by Anatome), I’m asking myself, “what have I done and what have I accomplished so far?” My answer is this, “I feel like I haven’t done much, but I sure did feel the motions…there were lots of ups and downs but in terms of accomplishments I haven’t done anything…” It’s now July and I have this burning urge to LIVE the next five months and make it my best. Seth Godin once said something like this, “if you want to grow, start a journal, write…”
And here it goes, I’m starting this blog once again with a newfound purpose: GROWTH. For starters, I’m free writing, I’m pouring my heart and thoughts out. I want to genuinely share what I’m feeling and let go of all the things that are holding me back. I want to be a CREATIVE. I mean at the age of 32, I can’t be the only one that doesn’t have it all figured out right?
Through this blog, I want learn how to express my thoughts, feelings, and I want to cultivate a strong relationship with myself. I also want to share what I know and share what I learn along the way. I want to be ever evolving… I want to find my HAPPY.
I hope you can get a glimpse of who I am by following my journey. My first post was beauty related (which was written over a year ago) and I still want to write, review and recommend nontoxic beauty products because green beauty is my hobby. I whole heartedly believe in natural beauty and I absolutely love the thought of aging gracefully. I also recently moved to Palos Verdes, CA and I want to share my experiences with this new city. For starters, I’ve become a herb gardener so I’ll be sharing gardening tips as well as my favorite spots to eat and drink in the South Bay area.
My first get to know me question is: “what do you like to do for fun?” The answer: I READ. I’m all about books, books, books. I absolutely love smelling books, holding books and I love to read whenever possible. I read about 10-20 books a year and I am currently reading “Her Body and Other Stories” by Carmen Maria Machado. For a period last year I was completely obsessed with feminist books and I couldn’t stop reading about feminism. This year I’m incorporating more health and wellness nonfiction into my rotation so I can further my expertise in the wellness/mindfulness sphere. Follow me on Goodreads at: jennyjk
