A Thank You Letter To My Family
mauiphotographybyjen.com

It’s hard to put into words exactly how thankful I am for you and everything you’ve ever done for me. I was truly blessed with the most amazing family in the world. Life without you guys wouldn’t be the same and neither would I. There’s never a time I couldn’t count on you guys. You’re my support system, my rock and my life. You believe in me, even when I don’t believe in myself. You cheer me on and push me even when I want to give up. You are the reason I am who I am today.

We’ve been through a lot in our lives, but without each other we wouldn’t have made it over the traitorous mountains of obstacles. I couldn’t imagine my life without a family like ours. A family that is so unique, giving, caring, dysfunctional and loving. A family who will love you unconditionally no matter what. A family who will always have your back, cheer you on, support you and do anything to make you happy. It is because of my family that I have the strength to grow, take chances, and live, because I knew they were always behind me every step of the way. It is because of them that I was shaped into the person I am today and will continue to be. I was blessed with so many amazing role models to look up to, with a handful of life advice and the ability to spread my wings and fly off into the world on my own to find myself. I was never told who to be, or what to do. I was guided through life and when it was finally time to fly I was ready, And I only have my family to thank for that.

Thank you for everything you’ve ever done for me and ever taught me. Thank you for teaching me the importance of my family. Thank you for teaching me to care and to have a giving heart. Thank you for teaching me to laugh, because after all laughter is the best medicine. Thank you for teaching me to work hard in life, because it will pay off. Thank you for teaching me that it’s okay to fail, to fall and hit a dead end, but never give up. After all, it’s the failure and mistakes that teach us in life. Thank you for being my biggest support, cheerleaders and always believing in me. Thank you for being a phone call away and a shoulder to cry on. Thank you for helping me fly on my own. Thank you for teaching me how to love unconditionally, and most of all thank you for loving me unconditionally no matter what.

I began suffering the symptoms of PCOS — acne, fatigue, weight gain, and an irregular cycle — when I was about 16, but I wasn't diagnosed until about nine years later.

The symptoms were, of course, frustrating, but I am now thankful for all of the time I spent trying to manage them naturally with my diet, herbs, and vitamins. Now that I am diagnosed, I do take a small dose of prescribed spironolactone which has helped immensely, mostly with my skin.

I'm not one to talk about personal issues, like the first-hand misogyny I experience as a woman, usually because it makes close family and friends uncomfortable. However, I have recently become exhausted with the number of comments I get, so I decided to rate all the ones I received in the past month to prove that misogyny is alive and real.

With the pandemic, so many of my friends and I discussed how it was hard to find new things for date night when so many places were closed. It seems like date nights were just endless nights of bingeing Netflix and stuffing my face with Halo Top and SmartSweets. I tried those other date night ideas like cooking together and playing cards. But even those things can get old after a while. Finally, I had it and decided we need to make date nights COUNT again, even if we had to social distance.

Here are 5 different and unique ways you can spice up date night with your partners.

- Since my late teens, I have had wavy, unruly hair that is susceptible to frizz from heat damage.

- I've made a conscious effort to try and eliminate heat styling products from my hair regimen in order to do less damage in the form of split ends and hair loss.

- When I first tried Tineco's MODA ONE Smart Ionic Hair Dryer, I was immediately amazed by how quickly it dried my thick strands and how straight/sleek my hair was with minimal work.

Up to my late teen years, my thick, soft, silky straight hair was the envy of nearly everyone I encountered. I totally took it for granted till my hair began to evolve into being more wavy and unruly with random patches of wavy and straight hair.
