Hello fellow blogger, you are always welcome here to share your stories with me as I continue to share with you.
I’m Jenna Dee, an Australian woman who learned to listen to my inner voice that I’d muted for 50 years.
Why do I blog?
Blogging gives me a voice I previously thought nobody wanted to hear. Blogging is my therapy. I confront and explore my emotions through writing and become accountable for my thoughts by making my posts public. It regenerates my self-esteem and positively influences my life.
I’ve poured out my troubles and said things ‘out loud’ for the first time on my blog. I’ve written how my fears, perceived failures and regrets affected my life until I found a way to let them go. At first I had no idea I was communicating with other people but soon discovered blogging is an ongoing conversation with dear friends.
Blogging challenges me to accept what is, let go of what was and have confidence in what will be.
What makes me tick?
I choose to live a simple life and I’m grateful for the love of my family, my health and happiness.
The beauty and unpredictability of nature exhilarates my senses. I live by the sea and often walk along the beach and swim in the sea. Breathing salty air and feeling the sea spray on my face invigorates my chi.
Usually I act rationally but once on the spur of the moment I adopted a lost dog from an animal shelter. This decision changed the fabric of my life in the best possible way. Words cannot describe how much joy my tiny dog Gracie Dee brings to me and our family.
After 23 years I felt compelled to stop using my married family name and become known by my family name at birth. As soon as I reconnected with my birth name it felt right. I love my husband and it pained me to hurt his feelings by disassociating with his name, however I felt so strongly about reclaiming my identity that I had to pursue this change.
I hope I’ve shared a little about myself that might spark your interest to read some of my posts. And if not, that’s okay, it was lovely to meet you.
