Layers of Jenn

Pulling back the layers and diving deeper.

The First of Many

The First of Many

In the land of New Year's Resolutions, I've found myself gravitating to more vague, growth-centric ones. For the past two years, I've followed the main NYR of something new for every month of the new year. That's 12 things and there is no limit to what they can be. Anywhere ...

Closing a Chapter

Closing a Chapter

After yet another unannounced hiatus, I'm finally back and in a new year no less. I know that I shouldn't feel a need to exactly explain myself, so I'll save the words, but just know that I'm finally in a better place now. After several days of finding myself not ...

Behind The Looking Glass

Oh, hi there.
It’s you.
How have you been?
Me? 
I’ve been okay.
I’ve just been dealing with a few things. I’m sorry I’ve been gone so long. I know, two weeks doesn’t seem like that much, but time goes by so slow. It’s just hard, you know? But I think I’ve taken enough time. Time away really allowed me to think. To actually clear my mind and see for the first time. Or maybe I’ve just seen all along, it’s hard to tell. I seem to go through periods like these quite often. The ones where I feel lost, and I just…float? I try to swim, but I don’t really get anywhere. Circles, on circles.
But now I have you, again.
The sole constant in a sea of many droplets.
Thank you for listening to my thoughts.

What Are You Thankful For? | VIPme

Can you believe that today is Thanksgiving? I'm scratching my head at how fast time flew by. Soon enough it'll be the holidays, then we'll be waltzing into the new year. Crazy, huh? I know that there will be tons of posts on Thanksgiving, what people are thankful for, recipe ideas, and ...

Taking a Step Back

Taking a Step Back

Hi lovelies, it’s been a while hasn’t it? I'm sitting here trying to compose my thoughts in a collective manner, but I can’t quite put feelings into words. I’m afraid to admit that I’ve been a little overly stressed this past week. I can’t exactly pinpoint when it began, or ...

Recognizing Your Self Worth

She stares off into the distance and her mind begins to wander. She begins to realize the magnitude of the world around her. She is but a grain of sand. So small, so minute.  She constantly believed that the world would move on regardless. That her existence didn’t matter. Here one day, gone the other. She went to bed and hoped for sweeter dreams, and woke up wishing the day would be over. She mastered the art of a smile, effortless and real except for that look in her eyes. The help-I’m-drowning look that people often overlooked and continued on with their lives. The voice that never traveled farther than the tip of her tongue. Silence, acceptance, destruction.
