Introducing Myself

Now because I was raised right, I couldn’t open up and tell y’all all my business without saying hello.

My name is Asha J, and I am a 27-year old blogger based in the DMV area. I am a mama to my amazing 5-year old, Ace.

Why am I creating a blog?

I’m here because I had a quarter-life crisis.

I thought I did everything right. I was raised in the church, went to college, started a great career, got the guy, and had a baby. By all appearances, I had everything together.

After I had my son, I had a terrible case of postpartum depression, and I questioned everything. I followed the script of everything I thought I was supposed to do, so why wasn’t I happy? I knew I didn’t enjoy my job, but I was good at it. I knew I was in love with my partner, but we kept having the same ugly argument without any resolution. I had been blessed with an incredible being to keep in my care but I was miserable every day. Even scarier, the faith I had followed all of my life didn’t make much sense anymore.

Ultimately, I started wondering what the point of all of this was. Had I arrived at my destination in life? Was this everything that life had to offer? And if so, what a complete scam this all was.

I knew that to get out of the hole I was in, I couldn’t go back to living the way I did before. I began to research healing, self-love, and “the meaning of life” (for lack of a better term). Lucky for me, I think I found some of the answers.

Why am I blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?

It is incredibly important for me to share my experiences so that we can all learn and grow together. I hope to spare others from the hardships I went through.

What topics will I write about?
So of course we’ll be diving into spirituality, healing, and ascension. But I’m also into fashion, beauty, and social commentary, so this blog will be a home for all of those topics as well.

I look forward to sharing my life with you all, and I love you in advance!
