Welcome to The Jawesome Life! I thought long and hard about whether I should rebrand, start a new website, and begin a new blog. Love, Justine (my original blog) began with my healing journey, and me wanting to make sure others out there knew they were not alone, and that we all have the power to make the most of our lives. It was a way for me to share inspiration, insights, and information. I will always continue on that journey, and I know I will continue to write to inspire, provide insights, and share experiences and information; but I feel like for the past year I have been writing a new chapter in my life, and figuring out what that is. Now that I have a sense of direction (at least on most days), I thought it was time for a new start with a new brand.
Love, Justine will continue to live on the worldwide web, and I am very proud of many of the blogs I have written there, but more importantly the connections I made with other people through Love, Justine. I hope to continue making many more connections through The Jawesome Life, too. That is the whole point of even having a site like this and blogs like the ones I write. The Jawesome Life promises to continue spreading the same good vibes through inspiring, insightful, and relatable stories, but with a more distinct focus.
As you can see, there are three main sections in this blog: The Jawesome Life, Travel + Culture, and Social Issues. In this main section, you will find more personal stories related to life--stories that hopefully you can relate to and/or will find helpful in different ways, especially keeping it positive even when you don't want to. In Travel + Culture I will share people and cultural insights that I learn about, observe, and experience in my travels and even just exploring my own city, here in LA. Social Issues, of course, is all about the work I do in my community that matters most to me, and sharing information that I hope opens people's mind and understanding about certain issues, as well as what we can do to better the situations. Through The Jawesome Life I want to take my goals of contributing to a complete culture change to another level.
So, welcome to The Jawesome Life, where it's all about living a life of wanderlust, curiosity, and positivity.
Be love. Be Brave. Be excellent to each other.
