“Nourishing yourself in a way that helps you blossom in the direction you want to go is attainable, and you are worth the effort.”
The airplane analogy of "putting on your own oxygen mask first before helping others" does not only apply to flying. In fact it applies to how you need to tend and care for yourself in life. When your cup is empty and you try to pour from it nothing comes out. The only way to fill your cup is to nourish yourself with kindness, compassion, and self love.
Taking a few minutes a day just for YOU can help you fill your cup.
It is in these small moments that you have the opportunity to be quiet, to listen in, to spill onto the page, to do something just for you, and to be fully present in the moment.
I invite you to join me on a 30 day journey to slowing down, being more mindful, tending to your heart, mind, & body, and showering yourself in self-care.
Everyones version of self-care may look a little bit different but one thing is for certain, we all need to fill up or wells in order to be able to show up in this world as our best version of ourselves.
As we walk this journey hand in hand you will be provided written, audio and video stories and inspiration to nourish your mind. There will also be different prompts, meditations, and exercises that you can add to your self-care toolbox. All lessons will be emailed to you so that you will be able to re-visit these tools time and time again when you feel you need a little self love tending.
It is never to late to begin taking care of yourself. This daily practice will provide you with a moment just for you. You will find that as you continue this self-care practice happiness will bubble up from inside of you and you will have more light to share with others

"It's not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself and make your happiness a priority. It's necessary."
It took me time to learn the importance of self-care and to get into the rhythm of tending to my happiness. I will put others needs before my own because I want to see them joyful, comfortable, and thriving. But in doing this there are times that I would become cranky and even resentful.
When my own well wasn't full I could not possible give to others in a way I wanted.
Now I know the importance of taking care of me. I have unearthed rituals and practices that I will be sharing with you that feed my heart and fill me up. These simple everyday moments allow me space to be more mindful with what I am going to do and where I am going to go. It has given me an opportunity to slow down, be kind to myself, and shower my heart with love.
Taking time for me fuels my own fire and lights me up. When I do so I feel happier, grounded, more at ease. These daily practices have become my go to tools for nurturing. One of them is daily intention setting. I light a candle, sit quietly, and write down what my intention is for that day. Having a daily intention is the perfect way for me to start the day. It sets the tone for how I want to feel.

"Where do I begin to tell you how much I enjoyed this online course. I loved everything from the lesson plans, the videos, and most of all how Jennifer had us look inside ourselves ..Find what we love .. Find who we truly are and 'celebrate' that."
"I was fortunate to be in the first offering of Love Notes Special Delivery. What a totally beautiful experience it was. I started my early morning with a daily lesson or video and then followed with writing in my journal from Jennifer's writing prompts. Jennifer has such a gentle way of presenting the lesson that made you feel welcomed and so at ease. It was like having your very own writing coach or partner right there with you. I thought I was in love with the writing process before; Jennifer's e-course deepened my writing even more."
"Thank you for opening your heart and inviting me into your beautiful Heart Notes course— it was just what I needed to close out 2015 and welcome 2016 with a peaceful heart. The prompts and videos were wonderful guides to slow down and look again at life.
Life moves fast and often I get lost in the day to day and miss the beauty. Your course gave me permission to slow down and allowed me to look again and see the beauty in the everyday and little moments. And those are beautiful.
You have a wonderful gift in sharing yourself with others and giving us a safe place to share ourselves with others."
"The Heart Notes class was a lovely way to reflect on the year that was ending, while opening up for the year to come. The lesson prompts set roots to all that happened during the year, making peace with the good and the bad, and helped clear my mind for a year of possibilities. The practice is one I want to repeat every year."
