Video – The Real Me

Around mid-June of this year I shared “The Real Me” as images. I finally got around to reading it and making it into a video. Check it out:

Reflective Poem About Motherhood and My Journey

My children, they trust me,

Even though many times I didn’t trust me.

They have had valid reasons not to trust me in the past.

I sip tea and meditate

breathing in today

yes I’m eager and anxious

but I must have patience.

Many things I don’t like

and many people I don’t agree with.

That’s okay.

Jess, that’s okay.

My children, they trust me.

Even though many times I didn’t trust me.

They have had valid reasons not to trust me in the past.

I’ve got a pep in my step

and although it’s not all

bubbles, unicorns, and glitter

over here,

I must choose to radiate positivity

lest those thinking traps,

they clench so fast with tight grip

I’ve got a story in my soul

and a swag in my hips

because I take things for what they are

and no longer what I wish them to be.

I look up at the sky.

I’m just happy to be here.


My Kids – My Journey – and Motherhood

Each day that I see my blog being noticed, it’s almost like an added layer of confirmation that I am on the right path and doing the right things. It hasn’t always been this way. Along my journey of finding and loving myself, I admit that I lost sight of how much my choices and my struggles impact my kids. Today I am so proud to say that my kids and I have made so many positive strides that have surprised even me. I love that I create space for them to speak and express themselves, but most of all I am happy that I have maintained age-appropriate transparency with them. And I always will. Check out my reflection on the subject of extending apologies to kids and keeping it real with them about these things.
