Lovelution = Revolutionary Love + Intentional Justice = My Big Why?

Lovelution = Love. Justice.Freedom.   We’re in one of my favorite months! So, it’s fitting that I’m back on the blogging scene just in time to show + celebrate love. Not just any love…a Lovelution of Love. In fact, it’ll be six years this V-Day that I entered the blogsphere with this post: Love: A Means Towards Freedom (read later) ♥ After re-reading it a few times myself, what feels evident is the importance of these three tenets: love, justice, and freedom.

What the Heck is a Mama Sabbatical™?!

Mama Sabbatical ™ (Current “working” Definition) :: The magical (though often challenging) time spent away from formal work responsibilities to focus your attention and love on your newest role and identity as a mama or female parent. Ideally, paid. My Rebirth into Motherhood In my last blog post for Justice Happenings (the Jillybeads 4 Justice blog), I mentioned how I would be putting the pause button on my bi-monthly posts during what I then envisioned being the standard 3 month maternity leave while I stepped back […]

That’s a Wrap :: 189 days* of Transformational White Space

*As of Sunday, August 30, 2015 Today as I organized my new mama work bag (a Nike duffle I scored at the outlet), I came across a personal artifact that takes me back in time to exactly two years ago (August 30, 2013). The artifact–an After Visit Summary from Kaiser (my then healthcare provider) pertaining to my wife and I’s visit to the infertility doctor*. One of the many intentional steps we took to start our family. All I can […]

Identity: Why the Focus?

As Dimensions Shifts Embracing Love & Compassion “If you bring forth that which is within you, what you bring forth will save you.” ~ Gospel of St. Thomas via @Jillian4Justice Launching a lovelution is just the beginning. Who we are (how we show up in the world to ourselves and others) and the experiences that result have an impact, often defining us. Identity is the lens that has helped me make sense of who I am and how I view the […]

Intersectionality: Let the Dialogue Begin…

 “Our desired impact… people begin to recognize our social and cultural identities are intertwined…” @jillian4justice   Today I had hoped to share how my mindset shift—5 Keys to Embracing Your Own Personal Lovelution (in case you missed it)—is expanding to a shift in my identity. However, I’m still exploring this new found awareness and how to share it with you. What I know for sure (thanks Oprah for this phrase!) is…that in a few weeks time, I’ll have a better handle on […]

Gratitude is All About Attitude

What a week it has been with not only the celebration of the redesigned Jillybeads 4 Justice website and vision, but also kicking off my 32nd year of life with a bang So far, the feedback has been nothing but positive, which makes all the effort and stress seem minimal at this point. As I move from celebration mode back to planning and action, I’m also finding myself shift to ease and gratitude. There are many things I’m grateful for […]

My Fuel: Part 2

My Fuel: Moving Closer to the Unknown “Pressure creates diamonds.” #truthbomb @DanielleLaPorte Hey Team Justice! With the reveal of the newly designed Jillybeads 4 Justice website on Monday, June 9th, which also happens to be the business’ 2nd Anniversary and my 32nd Birthday (yay!), it’s a blissful (and a bit stressful) time in my world. Plus, my wife* and I recently shared with our friends and community that we’re expecting our first child in late November (double yay!!), so I’ve been a bit distracted by […]

My Fuel: The Desire Map

How do you want to feel? Hey Team Justice! Can you believe it’s already been two weeks?! As time seems to be speeding up with each passing day, week, month, and year, so does my desire to make a difference. Instead of focusing on a never-ending list of to-dos and goal chasing, I have a renewed outlook that has revolutionized my day-to-day perspective—focusing on my core desired feelings. As I mentioned last time, I have spent the last 5 months Refueling […]
