Hello!

My name is Jackie. I am a mother, wife, social worker, parent educator, and entrepreneur (yes I do it all!). I have been on an intentional journey of transformation for the past 11 years.

Journaling has always been an outlet for me  since I was in elementary school. It has been my safe space, a place to reflect. During my journey, it was the best tool I found to work on personal development and improvement. There, I learned my flaws, limited beliefs, and core values that I needed to work on. Through journaling, I found out by working on myself, I was better person, but also better at caring for all the people around me.  The most important thing I learned through my journey was by prioritizing myself, I am a better woman. I learned that  by loving myself and by being gentle with myself was the release I needed in order to live a life full of vitality, authenticity, and fulfillment.

My mission here is to inspire and teach women how to lead authentic, fulfilling lives by “filling their cup” so they “fill their home.” 

But my being a mother, wife, etc. is not all of who I am.

I also am a sensitive, passionate introvert who loves books, reading, learning, and games.

My goal is to educate others and celebrate who they are. Beauty, Flaws, and Everything In Between. 

On this site, I will be sharing more of my story, along with resources for about parenting, mental health,  and self-care. 

I am sharing my experience of continuous reflection, personal growth, creative self-care, and self love 

 to show that by working on ourselves AND using our own intuition, we can have more fulfilling lives.

More about Me:

I have a master’s in social work. I have worked with women, families, and youth for 14 years, on vaious skills such as empowerment, self-esteem, life skills, conflict resolution, stress management, parenting, etc.

I am currently using my training and experience as my foundation to work with others to provide workshops, classes, and life coaching. 

I love journaling and pretty much anything creative such as scrapbooking, arts and crafts, painting, doodling, etc. When I am not working or spending time with my family, you can see me planning, reading, or playing casual time management games.

 

My Story:

Since I was six years old, I wanted what everyone wants: love. However, I looked in all the wrong places. I wanted to be with the cool kids, and did not openly hang out with the “different” kids or the “nerds.” This led to many toxic relationships, failed friendships, and unfulfilled jobs.

Fast forward to college, I knew I wanted to change and help others. However, I knew what I chose as my major, nursing, was not for me, but I felt guilty for so many reasons. My parents were paying for my education and I knew what I really wanted to do was not something they would agree to (As an Asian-American woman, I felt that I had to oblige to their wants and desires.) After 4 years in college, miserable, and being almost done,  I took time off to re-evaluate who I was and what I wanted. 

I knew I wanted to help others, but now I didn’t know how. This was the first time that I felt I was allowed to make a decision for myself.   After some time in therapy, I finished my bachelors in sociology, and worked on myself. I spent the next several years reading personal development books. After another failed relationship, I worked on taking care of myself again, worked out, and strengthened my relationship with God.  During my journey to find peace and contentment, I even attended a silent retreat. I declared the positive changes that would happen in my life. Then less than a year later, , I met my now husband, and in the span of 2 years, I got pregnant, got engaged, got married, and moved to a new state. 

I have spent most of my life evaluating myself and transforming to be the best I can be. I hope by sharing the joys of personal development, self-care, and self-love  I can help others like you too.
