Do you go within?

Its said that when you go within, you begin to create the change you seek.  Do you believe that to be true?  Do you believe that you have the power to change your reality? I do because I've seen it!  I've felt a change within so intensely that it changed my world. In the not…

A girl. A city. In love.

She wrote stories of a time she hadn't lived. She longed for sunshine days filled with the sweet smell of floral markets and pleasant smiles. She remembered the amber pendants hanging from iron columns. She felt her soul being called backwards; to a time and place that no longer existed. Some called her an old…

My biggest growing experience.

You're not growing if you refuse to let go. You're not growing if you choose to stay safe. You're not growing if you don't accept change. As I was meditating today, I felt an urge to write. I wrote without thinking, without hesitation. "I have seen amazing detail in your dreams - so much so…

Generation: Heal

As I sit at my desk, staring out into the blue sky, I attempt to recall the exact moment when I realized that hurt had become my shield.  I wore it like a crest; majestic and proud.  I claimed that all circumstances were what they were due to the pain I felt in my soul.…

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…

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…

Bursting with pride.

Our son has been struggling this school year. Understandably, he has encountered many changes at home and academically, yet his determination and perseverance astound me. You see, Brixton struggles with reading intensely. He doesn't enjoy it, therefore, he doesn't put forth a great effort. As his mom, and a writer, this is agony to me.…

When it hurts.

Some days you know you can conquer your dreams, while others leave you breathless with agony. For the days filled with agony and sorrow of yesterday, remember who you are today. A memory isn't always to be remembered as it felt. To preserve your now, remember yesterday for who you were then. When it hurts,…
