Reject Perfection and Live Emotionally Well

If Jennae Petersen has any secrets, I don’t wanna know them!

Why? Because if she saw fit to keep something a secret—with all the sharing she does—I’m probably not ready to deal with it.

She calls herself a private person, but I swear I feel like I’ve known this woman for decades.  She shares her struggles, successes, and lessons over on her site, and she has been writing about lifestyles and love, hope, design, illness, and wellness for years.  She was one of my first bloggie homies, and I love every second of watching her evolution!

Today, mother, wife, green living expert, eco-friendly decorator, professional blogger, graphic designer, and plain ole’ wonderful are among her list of titles.  Clearly, Jennae must know a thing or three about emotional wellness, or she’d either be way to disorganized to participate in anybody’s conference.

For our session, Jennae wrote a heart-felt post about her journey toward self-acceptance and helping others.

Grab some tea, breathe deep, and read on…

  • LMBO! WOW I couldn’t even finish reading this and had to stop at the “solitude” and “social anxiety” part.

    No worries, this isn’t a diss comment. I’m laughing and had to stop reading and come over here to leave my comment because – I relate. I think we all share the same – story but we tend to feel as though we need to cover it up in shame. I recently (and will share a bit in my talk later) that I do have a bit of social anxiety. I love people and talking and sharing, but feel more comfortable in solitude or with small meaningful connections with people – in doses. LOL classic introvert.

    Thank you for sharing this Jennae!

    I’m sure I’ll have comments or questions after I read the rest of the post tonight – I’m gonna get my warm ginger/lemon/honey drink (yummy!) dim the lights and dive in :-).

    Much love

    • Katrina, thank you so much for reading, and I completely understand your reaction 🙂 For the longest time, I couldn’t put a name on what I was feeling, but “social anxiety” definitely sums it up. I’m glad to hear I’m not alone, and I’d love to hear what you do to combat it!

  • “I am my own success story first” I loved that! I loved every bit of that. Be your own first success story. wow. be your own first testimonial. Be your first case study. Use your life as an experiment, be open to learning and growing, pushing and pulling. “Does the system/program work? Look at me”… awesome.

    So glad Jeanne decided to participate in your conference Akilah…again, it’s been great!
