Hi, I’m Joëlle (djo-wel), but please call me Joey.
And welcome to my blog! Whew, this page was in dire need of an update. I started blogging in 2015 to share the things I’m passionate about as I was pretty sure the people around me were getting tired of me sharing every single thing they legit don’t care about, but listen anyway because they very much love me.
But I have to be honest, I haven’t been taking it seriously at all. As much as I love writing and sharing my findings with people, I didn’t make the time to commit. In 2022 I decided: Let’s fucking go and then…
I burnt the fuck out
I went from working 36 hours a week, being in a relationship of almost 8 years, working out 5 days a week and alladat, to just an empty shell of me. My mental health was just terrible. I couldn’t do shit, but move from bed to the couch and spend my hours watching light shows like $chitts creek and Shameless. And just when I thought things couldn’t get worse, my relationship ended as well.
Honestly, I was at the brink of just giving up on life entirely. I couldn’t work, my relationship was over, I was barely making ends meet…I felt worthless and was absolutely tired from having to keep going.
Luckily, I was able to start therapy and it quite literally has saved my life (along with the family and friends who didn’t give up on me). Being in therapy has been offering me so many insights, which I will not bore you with as this is still an introduction to me. But if you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
My goal is to use this blog as part of my journey of rediscovering Joey all over again. And to take you, my beloved reader on this journey of mine with the hope to inspire and motivate you to become the best version of you; inside out. There will be posts on must-read books that can help you to grow. Posts of my favorite items that I might not be able to afford, but I’m definitely lusting after and could help you slay the day. Posts of quotes that might give you the boost that you need to get through a particular situation. And every now and then I will get candid and just share my personal experiences.
So without further ado, I’d like to welcome you to my blog and am looking forward to going on this journey with you.
