Nice to meet you.
Always Jennifer, never Jenny. Jenn works too and my heart will always swoon with nostalgia when I hear Jen-a-pay. I try to not sweat the small stuff, although sometimes I do. I don't believe that ignorance is bliss. I like to problem solve and believe in hard work. I am moved by the small details of something, and the grace within it. Culture and experiences are important to me. I believe that overall people are trying their best. I am both moved and stopped in my tracks by the power of words and storytelling. You will always find a book on my nightstand, my coffee table, and in the bag I'm carrying that day. I always try to find the best in others and not see a situation from only my point of view. I find beauty in the strength, drive, and effort that is present when you're trying your best. I believe there are always different perspectives, and time is the best medicine. I stand in awe of the wisdom of others. I heard once: Patience is the companion of wisdom, and I couldn't agree more. I am often amazed by the power of the mind, and I believe in the importance of the quiet pause we give our minds to breathe and reflect. I believe in being proactive verses reactive. Less is usually more, and I love negative space. I consider myself a life-long learner, always progressing, and living fully in my values. I believe in the golden rule and that kindness always wins. And laughter. Laughter wins too, and it fills the soul.
