Intentional Living- Welcome to My Blog!
Hey, hello, hi! Most of you probably know me as your weird, slightly awkward, and insufferably optimistic friend, Jess. If you’ve stumbled across this blog and have no idea who I am, please allow me to introduce myself!
I’m Jessica, but most people call me Jess! I am a 22 year old photographer, student, USAF reservist, and alien. (Okay there’s no real proof that I’m an actual alien but it just seems right). For the last few years, I’ve been exploring this existence in pursuit of growth and heart-centered, joyful living.
On this journey, I’ve experienced a handful of different lifestyles from the strict routines of Air Force bootcamp, to the zero routines of a nomadic hippie life on the road. I’ve travelled to over 20 countries, met countless incredible human beings that have undoubtedly inspired me, and have been learning more about the interconnectedness of all life while learning about different cultures, religions, spiritualities, ways of life, and diving deep into sweet Gaia and all of her divine beings and environments. I keep falling in love with every part of this world and this human experience in new ways, constantly. Everytime I travel to a new place, meet a new person, or gain a new perspective, I grow and love and feel inspired.
Living in a state of consistent joy is something that I’ve been learning to maintain just in the past few years, and that has led me to the creation of this blog in hopes that it will inspire and empower others in their pursuit of joyful living. (Although it should be noted, I still experience ALL of the human emotions and I do not ignore or suppress them; part of joyful living for me means allowing my feelings to be heard, explored, and released!).
Three practices have completely transformed my life from one of depression, self-worth issues, and feeling detached, to one of joy, peace, and purpose!
The Practice of Gratitude
The Practice of Self-Love
The Practice of Intentional Living
Once a week (well, that’s the goal at least!) I’ll be posting about these practices and how they’ve changed my life. I’ll be sharing stories from travels, talking about decisions that have changed my life (such as joining the military and going plant-based), and overall just talking about the power of living with intention, from the smallest actions and thought processes. Thank you for holding this space with me. I deeply appreciate you taking the time out to see me and hear what I have to say!
Until next time, have a B-E-A-U-TIFUL day!
