I’m Jayzelle! I’m a millennial growing up in the world. I’m a strong believer in words & their power to influence & spark change. I am a huge lover & advocate for music, art, & any performing art – singer, dancer, & performer here! But the arts are not the only thing that captivate my soul.
I would like to consider myself an athlete. I have experience in playing all kinds of sports, but growing up I spent majority of my athletic life playing Basketball & Volleyball. Volleyball stole my heart when I was in high school & I have never looked back. The rush you get when you dig a good hit or when you smash on someone on the opposite team are the moments that I live for in volleyball.
As a product of Military life, I was blessed enough to visit & live in quite a few places around the United States. However, as a Military brat whose family only got stationed in the U.S., I’ve always had a longing for adventure & exploration of the great, wide world that we call our home. Travel & the beauty of nature have always had a special place in my heart & one day I am going to see the world.
But those things are not why I’m starting this blog. I recently had a life-changing experience which brought me back to my roots in San Diego, Calif. I spent a lot of time reevaluating my life & coming back to the things that truly make me who I am as a person before any of all this new age technology came into my life – my love for reading for pleasure, writing from my heart, & being with/spending time with the people that know me better than I know myself.
Over the past few months I realized that I don’t write like I used to when I was in high school. I want to change that. That’s where this blog comes in.
I’ve told myself over the years that I would start a blog to let the world know what’s going on in my brain – I actually even created this blog when I was in college – but it never actually came to life. If there’s anything I learned over these past few months, one of those lessons would be that life is short. So stop dreaming & start actually doing. So this is me doing (blogger style).
This will be my place to write – to write about my experiences, my thoughts, & whatever else goes on in this crazy mess of things that I call my life. My goal is to write about anything & everything and maybe somewhere along the way I can inspire someone or write something that will make a difference. You might even get the occasional poem, if you’re lucky!
I’m not quite sure what else to say about myself or what the future has for this blog, because the possibilites are endless.. But hi, I’m Jayzelle. Nice to meet you, welcome to my world!
