Who I am
Hi! My name is Jenn and I am a 30-something year old woman living in Nebraska! I am married to my best friend, Chris and together we have 3 wonderful children.
What my blog is about
My blog is about the trials and tribulations of life. The ups, the downs, the joy, the sorrow, and everything in between. I write a lot about mental health, motherhood, and my overall perceptions on the life I am living. My main focus is, as the name says, trying to reclaim my sanity through everything that comes my way. I strongly believe in the power of writing and vulnerability. No one should have to go through life feeling alone in their struggles. No one should be left to feel like sharing their joy with others is tacky. Afterall, we all come into and leave this world the same ways. Why not get through it in the best way we can, helping each other along the way.
A Little More About Me
I was born and raised in Eastern Nebraska where I still currently reside. I graduated high school in 2008 and entered the work force full time. I met my husband in 2010 where we both worked at the same company. It was a whirlwind love and we married in 2012. I became a stay at home wife and one year later, we became parents to our first son. From 2013 to 2017, I attended college and graduated with my Bachelors degree in Healthcare Administration. We also added our daughter to our family in 2017. In 2019 we added our last child, a son, to the mix. They certainly keep us on our toes!
In 2022, I began considering what do I want to do for work once all 3 kids are in school? I finally took the plunge and enrolled in a Masters program for Psychology. I am hoping to use my degree to help children who struggle with mental health and learning disabilities. Because of that, I also started working part-time at an elementary school, where I am currently teaching English to Spanish speaking children. I absolutely love my job and the district I am in.
With all of that fun and exciting stuff also comes the not so fun and often times very difficult for me stuff. I have struggled with mental health [depression, ocd, and anxiety] and learning disabilities [adhd] for as long as I can remember. I have been on a self improvement journey that encompasses my physical and mental health, with the hopes of just living my best life. This blog helps me to do just that and I hope it helps others with their journey as well!
I certainly enjoy when people leave me comments! I love hearing other people’s stories and their opinions on the subjects that come up. So feel free to leave me comments wherever you see fit! If you’d like to continue on this journey with me, feel free to subscribe!
