“Every one of us has an essential contribution to make, and we can do so only by taking the risk of being uniquely our own selves.” ~Carol Pearson.
Hey Family! I promised once the rebranding was complete I would check in and give you the backstory. Before I get into that I want to thank you for your support, encouragement, and patience as I navigated unfamiliar territory. Your emails, texts, and private messages were greatly appreciated! Those of you who have been around from the beginning remember when my blog was ‘Mieko’s Musings.’ I shared my observations on “life, love, fabulousness, and fuckery,” as well as a little of what was going on in my life. When I did the blog series on The Four Men You Date in Your 40’s, unbeknownst to me, that was the catalyst for major changes to come. I received a lot of email in response to that series. What surprised me is how many women read that series, read a few of the other posts, and said they thought they were the only ones who had experienced some of those situations. I immediately thought to myself, “Girl, I could tell you some stories!” Then, it hit me – that’s exactly what I was doing. I wasn’t just musing, I was sharing my experiences and the things I’ve learned along the way. I was sharing my figurative journey through life. Meanwhile, I’m working on something incredibly cool that involves travel – a literal journey if you will – and it just made sense. So, to all of you who have taken this ‘Journey with Jae’ since the beginning, thank you again. To those of you just joining me, welcome and glad to have you along!
