A month ago, I turned 27. This year has been a hard one so far. I went through so many changes that I wasn’t ready for. I was lost and may still feel a little uncertain in my direction, but I’m finding myself again. I am grateful for these moments and for the people in my life who continue to stand by my side.

  1. Hi Jada, I’m not sure if you remember me: I wrote on YayYahYeah back when we all used to use Blogger.
    I have always been a fan of your spirit and character. You showed me kindness and warmth with your comments and I will always remember that.
    I know this feeling of being lost. For the longest time in my twenties, I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I thought I wanted to be a music journalist but the self critic in me pushed me down constantly.
    I have two wonderful children now. They have shown and taught me so much. I know what I want to do now – helping other mothers know their own strength and power by being a breastfeeding counsellor and go on from there, hopefully.
    The self critic in me is still there but I’m learning to find a space where it no longer takes over and I can live in the present, appreciating all that I have.
    I wanted to share my story with you Jada because being lost is a good thing…it will lead you to where you need to go. You have this sense of perseverance and strength which will pick you up to keep going.

    I am so proud of you and everything you have achieved thus far. You are like the alternate universe Me 😊

    1. Hi Jenny,

      Wow, I do remember you! Thanks for stopping by and reading again. It’s been quite a while, but your kind words made my day! I really needed to hear this.

      I’m so happy you found your path as a counselor and mother! Your kids are lucky to have you.

      Thanks again for stopping by. It’s amazing how much time has passed and yet I remember our exchanges! Thanks for the sweet words, and wish you well 🙂

      – Jada
