My close friends and family call me Je, and as long as I can remember people mis-spell my name Jena as ‘Gina’. And even recently someone said, why is it ‘Je’ instead of ‘G’? And I giggle because it’s kind of the ‘story’ of my life. I never quite fit the mold that society has put in place for us, and now that I’m in my forties, I no longer fight that, I actually embrace it. And it took me forty plus years to learn to fully love ME, the woman that God created me to be. This woman that I have learned to fall in love with is witty, grounded, caring, loving, kind, but can also be zesty, moody, and emotional.
I just now give myself the freedom to be the diverse person I am as long as I am not hurting myself or anyone in the process…..
