Jen Unplugged…A Force to be Reckoned With

"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, and some humor, and some style" -Maya Angelou I'm suddenly inspired to write something, somewhat of a tribute I suppose, about a gal that was about a fierce as they come and lived her…

UnBelizable Adventure…What Happens When You Say YES To Life!

She's changed...(We all have) How could I even begin to describe a recent experience that has so deeply touched me, inspired me & connected me with my fellow "people", yes these are "My People"... Just two months ago I couldn't have even fathomed heading off to Belize with a couple of gals I barely knew...and now as…

Mothers & Daughters

 I've been reflecting.... Over the last few years, my own personal experience has shown me that the things that present themselves in our lives (the great and not so great) are all perfectly orchestrated to give us some deeper understanding,  some form of healing and a new level of awareness about ourselves. If we are willing to see the…

The Simple Truth About Friendship

"Set your life on fire. Seek those who fan your flames." - Rumi Years ago, I went through some pretty major "life changers". The events impacted me in such a major way, a real "shake up" and ultimately caused me to re-examine pretty much everything in my life. Belief systems, relationships and most of all my self-worth.   I was so totally…

This post is not about the " being beautiful on the inside"- that's already a given! We as women can be pretty hard on ourselves and on other women when it comes to "looks". Telling yourself…

About a year ago, I stumbled upon something called a "Legacy Journal" at the bookstore. It got me thinking, "what does a person write about in a legacy journal?" and of course, the ultimate question, "What will my legacy be?" It caused me to really reflect about what my impact is and has been on those…

We have gone through life changing events together, we have cried, laughed, shown each other the best and the worst of ourselves. It got me thinking. My friendships and realtionships have changed with…
