Good morning,

I hope you had a lovely weekend. We are starting to pack over here, but I think for all three of us, we pack best in the last 12 hours before boarding the plane, lol. I guess Wednesday night is going to be a bit crazy. :)

Packing requires me to use both my head and my heart. Especially since I am shipping out across an ocean this time.

In all of my 10+ moves, I've had to downsize. I've been doing a version of the KonMari method since before the book came out, and now that the book has come out, packing has become even more streamlined. (Does it spark joy? If not, donate or toss it out.)

Like most Asian Americans (or maybe just 1st gen Americans in general?) I used to have so much trouble throwing things away, but ever since a friend reframed it for me, it's felt better. She said, "You're not throwing anything away, Jess. Nothing is going to waste. You are opening up space to allow more magic to come in and most of the things you're getting rid of you're donating, which means it's going to someone else who needs it more than the back of your closet does." :)

So I'm using my head to create the list of things that I absolutely need to take with me, and for all the rest of my stuff, I'm using my heart (Does it spark joy?) to decide whether I want to keep it or not.

On a similar note, the episode that came out this morning on The Love Yourself Podcast is with my very dear coach, Bri Seeley, and we talk about what it means to take action from your head versus your heart and why it's important to distinguish the two in order to create the life you want.

Bri has actually been on the podcast twice before, and you've probably heard me mention her on the podcast and in my emails recently, so I'm excited to bring her back on.

In our interview, you're going to hear:

  • What it means to allow the Universe to flow through you

  • How to distinguish between making decisions from your head vs. your heart and how that’s crucial to creating the life and business you desire

  • Why it’s so important to create and embrace your own unique path to success and happiness

  • How to balance taking action and being in alignment with your Future Self

  • What it means to surrender the reins to the Universe so illogical magic can happen! (And it most definitely doesn’t mean giving up or taking no action at all!)

And of course, be sure to stay until the end to hear Bri’s definition of Self Love! 🙂

Can't wait to hear your thoughts!

With love,


PS: I am also celebrating Episode 50 on the podcast!!! I've had so many starts and stops with the podcast, I never thought I'd actually make it to 50, so woohoo!
