To My Grandkids,
Sooo, we moved to an island in Puerto Rico!
This has been a big week for me. A couple days ago was September 16th, which is a big day for 'Jordan history'. 2 years ago on the date was my rock bottom. At a young age, I was going through a lot, and felt the weight of the world on my shoulders. I felt intense sadness, loneliness, anger, resentment, and overall hopeless for the near future. I had hit an all time low mentally, and on September 16th, 2019,
When I moved to Montana I started a brand new life. I turned those overwhelming feelings into hunger- ready to get serious about my wellbeing. I started taking care of myself, focusing on my health, practicing yoga, and spending more time alone. In those moments of solitude, I learned a lot. I dropped habits, cut relationships, recognized my desires, and started digging deep. I spent many months learning to heal a years worth of emotional trauma. I took a lot of time to look at the girl in the mirror, love her, comfort her, and recognize her strength for what she'd been through. In all my lessons, one thing rang through boldy, forcing itself to grow, flourish, and change my life: Self Love.
In the 2 years since then, I have seen myself go through many seasons of growth. I am so SO proud of the woman I have become, and I am extremely blessed to be where I am now.
Today, I woke up in a new country with Elliot. 3 planes, 3 taxis, 1 ferry ride, and a short walk later, we ended up at a farm on a small island off the coast of Puerto Rico called Vieques. It has been amazing so far, and we've already made a ton of memories here through several adventures. We will be living here indefinitely as we help rebuild a farm that was home to many volunteers and disaster relief teams.
This is exactly why I started SunGuided. I am using this website as a platform to reach out to young women like myself who are ready to get started on their journey, or who might need some big sister love and encouragement to do so. I am targeting people like myself that felt like their dreams were too big for the world nowadays, and didn't have the support or guidance to know how to reach for it.
This is exactly what I needed 2 years ago.
Life is so good, I am so blessed.
Thank you dear Universe for giving me all that I desire.
And thank you for making me experience rock bottom, it lit a fire in my soul.
Your BADASS island dwelling, self loving, EMPOWERED Granny J :)
