When you are afraid of something and you think about this fear a lot, you based your actions around it and you give it energy.

You actually have a subconscious desire or expectation for it to happen.

What if you used the energy of your thoughts and intentions to create brave feelings and authentic actions, untempered by fear?

There are so many possibilities.  Too many to not explore.

Don't feed the fears.  Use your imagination to create the life you do want.

Jennifer // #WriteWordsThatMove

You say “Your life is falling apart.”

Familiar trappings of success stripped away seemingly overnight.
In actuality, I feel more whole as I let go.
Digitally unclaiming that which was never mine.
Mentally detaching from perceptions that kept me shackled.
I hear His whispers.
I respect the softness.
I do not seek to adjust to higher decibels.
I am patiently waiting – perhaps for the first time.
In the meantime…
I am exposed.
My ego incurring bruises en route to this spiritual stratosphere.
I asked to unravel. I meant it.
I am (be)coming unburdened by the tangibles I used to define success.
The unnecessary falling away.
I slowly open my eyes.
Trepidation weighing my lids.
Small slits reveal…an illuminated world, long - sought answers.
“And exhale.”  - Jennifer

All Your Best Stuff Comes From This Place

I was an intense kid and I learned early on that it wasn't a 'cool' thing to be so I did my best to conceal it.

Twenties Unscripted // A Journey of Womanhood, Writing and Relativity

"Writing is about the art; blogging is about the science. Writing is about the inspiration; blogging is about the commitment. I say both of those things to say that blogging has revealed to me that talent and a calling are simply not enough. You have to be willing to put in the work, pay your dues and hone your craft."
