Love yourself first.

As you sit here reading this, you're probably wondering why I'd begin with such a statement. Let me explain. As a relationship coach, and someone who had to go through my own version of hell to realize the detriment of my relationships, I can speak as frank as possible to say: Love yourself first so…

Embracing change.

Human nature has taught us many things, yet most of them are wrong.  We grow up in a world that shapes us to believe who we are told we are. Only when we realize we are who we decide to be, is when our internal world really takes shape. If you're like me, I had to…

Look Within.

Here's a story that most people don't know.  I tell it now, not because I feel anyone needs to know the happenings of my relationships, yet to understand how powerful we are as humans. We hold the power to change our entire reality; our entire world. A few short years ago, I felt lost.  Completely lost within…

Words of wisdom

When seeking wisdom to travel through life's bumpy road, one tends to create scenarios of confusion, rather than clarity. To become what we are afraid to see ourselves as is often a challenge far bigger than we can comprehend. To be what we most fear, to be the icon - the beacon - the trailblazer…

Created for More.

She was born to create. There were no obstacles that deter her from being who she was meant to be. She is here to make a difference. She is here to bring peace. In times of uncertainty, she relied on her passion to see her through. In those times, she created waves of love. Waves…

Free.

Encapsulated by darkness; a dense fog that overshadowed her being. She sat peacefully in the moment, intending for the fog to dissipate through the goodness of her soul. Gently, she spoke the words "I am me.."  Slowly and infinitely, she waited.  At ease in the present. To be utterly patient wasn't easy, yet she overcame…

Who I Am.

Allow me to (re)introduce myself. I'm Jessi. I carry many titles, all with significant meaning to my life.  I am a mom, wife, daughter, sister, friend, writer, coach and entrepreneur.  With each title comes a chapter of my story that makes me the unique individual that I am. My story began quite simple.  I'm from…

The Year of Discovery and Exploration.

Everyone is talking about their word for 2020. I started to wonder what my word would be.. In talking to my kids (because they're my sounding board), I realized that we have two words for this new horizon: Discover & Explore. I won't narrow these words to become strictly dictionary versions of what they could…

Concentrated thoughts.

Have you ever been so consumed by a thought that you can feel its power? When that power grabs ahold of you, and refuses to let go, you are being called to do something with it. Sometimes a forward action will alleviate the consuming thought, while other times it's a push to keep moving in…

Pressure.

As humans, we tend to overload ourselves with unbearable amounts of pressure.  Why?  Do we seek validation to such an extreme that we value the opinion of others more than our own sanity?  Sound harsh, maybe.  But its the truth.  If we cared less of what the outside world thinks of our progress and more…

333

It took a while for me to believe, if you will, that numbers had valuable meaning. After noticing, at random times, that certain numbers kept popping into my view, I began to question their realism. Last night is a great example. In the Midwest USA, it's cold.. winter has arrived. Just as you would imagine…

The Mama Chronicles: Being Mom.

Being a mom is the job of a lifetime.  It requires more sacrifice and dedication than anything you've ever done before.  Late night, early mornings, or both all lead up to this.. You are a mom. Sleep deprivation and a constant need for something turn us into coffee hoarding, baggy eyed zombies for the first…
