Jenny's mindfulness journey began following a difficult time - a three-year relationship ended, her grandmother passed away, and doctors found a tennis-ball sized cyst on her mother’s pancreas. Jenny says, "They say pain is the touchstone of growth and I’m no exception to this experience!" She said, "I found mindfulness when I was 25 pounds overweight, in a long and successful technology sales career that I secretly hated, and I felt very alone and isolated." She decided she had a choice, to give up or grow. She chose growth and has continued choosing her growth and evolution ever since.
A passion of Jenny's now as a mindful entrepreneur is to "honor her (and others') inner yearnings" and make them a reality. She started Bloom Designs Company - which offers a unique mix of spirituality and professionalism in design services.
Jenny says, "Living mindfully, for me, is the imperfect practice of self-acceptance, self-love and self-compassion. The experience of learning to be compassionate towards myself - it somehow builds a bridge of compassion, tolerance and understanding towards everyone else and changes....everything."
Jenny recommends a morning routine as a touchstone to presence and insight. She describes her morning routine as ten minutes of meditation followed by some type of journaling or writing every morning. Jenny says, "Julia Cameron of The Artist’s Way calls journaling 'spiritual windshield wipers - swiping away anything that stands between you and a clear view of your day.'" She says when she journals, she sees her life and life’s challenges more clearly. She says, "I’ve had major spiritual aha’s and breakthroughs come when I’m journaling - it’s truly amazing!"
Jenny goes on to say, "The mindful tools I learned swung open a door for me - I now understand how to not only stop rejecting and abandoning myself but to appreciate and 'love' myself...and in turn, appreciate and love those around me in a different way than I ever have before. My relationships have softened and deepened as a result, and it's been nothing short of miraculous."
