Thank you to all of you who have left a comment in support of yesterday’s post. You guys are the best. I know I over think things and I think out loud. It’s always a funny thing, this blog relationship. When I write I don’t think about the fact that people are actually going to read these words, but yes, you are out there. You are definitely out there.


Lately, I’ve been thinking about how it sometimes takes a lifetime to change. 42 years old and I still need a lot of work. It’s been a really strange first half of the year, at times stressful and scary and other times confusing and introspective, but as the light shifts into full summer, I’m looking forward to making the 2nd half of the year much better.

    I enjoy your blog immensely for many reasons, and one of them is your thoughtfullness. I know you’ll do what’s right for yourself, and whatever that is, I support.

    The fact that you write from the heart as if no one else will be reading your words is possibly the thing that sets you aside from so many other blogs I’ve read, and the reason I keep coming back to read more Jenna & a few ads certainly won’t stop me! xo

    Isn’t it so strange that even cross-culturally, society has dictated we do certain things by a certain age, including “growing up”? Why does 30 have to be the new 25? Why have we created these age-restrictive timelines for ourselves? Thanks for your posts, Jenna. I really enjoy your honesty and introspection.

    I know what you mean … this year has been a whopper so far …I read this recently that is helping me navigate …. The routines of daily life diverge from their normal rhythms this week, as several powerful celestial patterns continue to pull hearts, as well as minds, in diverse directions. This scattering of attention is sure to produce a peculiar psychic and/or emotional disequilibrium – but don’t worry about the tilt. Life isn’t wobbling completely out of control, even if there are moments when some of us are likely to feel overwhelmed by persistent situations that no matter how hard we try just won’t seem to “straighten out.” Truth is, the idea of getting anything “straight” is its own kind of challenge right now, given that we’re also in the thrall of an astral time warp, straddling past, present, and future realities, all at the same time. Balance is key to handling this astral flux, and while that might sound like a simple solution, finding and maintaining a steady internal stance in the midst of so many potent shifts requires a deep, perhaps even new, level of concentration and skill … Ralfee Finn

    I know what you mean too…this year has been very stressful so far. We have encountered so many unplanned expenses already at least 7,000 worth that I am hoping the rest of the year is much better and cheaper!!

    It’s funny how the light shift to summer can make things seem just that little bit brighter. Here’s to your having a wonderful weekend. Annie x

    this is totally random, jenna. but this morning over breakfast, i was telling my husband about your blog and it turns out he has a small connection to you. he’s also a grad of ITP and was a front end developer at oxygen when you were working on that social networking project with them. in fact, he was the guy that coded your design. so, um, yeah. small world.

    anyway, i hope you are having an excellent weekend!
