Welcome to me.

I know that may sound strange. However, there is no other way I feel is appropriate to greet you. On beautyisfoundeverywhere I invite you to join me on the journey of my life. The good, the bad and the boring. This website is an extension of who I am and what interests me. If you’d like to stick around feel free to click the follow button on your right.

 

Who I am.

Who you are is not defined by what you do but why you do it. I feel like that should and could be a quote!

Let me know if it is below.

I am… Jasmine. My life revolves around those I love and cherish. I want to make people smile and spread contagious kindness wherever I go. Do I always live up to that… Not quite. After all I’m only human. I love life because I see it as art. Everything is beautiful. Everything is loved.

To be continued….

Perhaps when I can dig a little deeper. It wouldn’t be fair if I knew exactly who I was… Life would be boring. Nothing would ever change.

 

Why Im Here.

I’m not quite sure why I blog, for little while I kept a journal in my lunch box and every opportunity I had I would write in it. Never anything witty or creative simply the way my day unfolded and how I felt. I never enjoyed writing before. Growing up I remember my teacher asking us what we wanted to be when we got older. I wanted to be a lawyer. I wanted to argue and prove points. I wanted to be bossy and demanding. I wanted control. Maybe that rooted from never being the popular girl or perhaps the way I always felt like an outcast from birthday parties and after school activities.

Who knows…

Writing used to be tedious and unrewarding. It was something that was graded by one person who never really shared your point of view. I used to enjoy vocally communicating, writing took too much effort. Now a days I want to teach. However, my biggest challenge is going back to school. I recently moved out of my parents and let’s be honest I don’t want to be that big sister that moved back in. I love living on my own  and having my best friend with me.

If you guys haven’t read my blog I just recently celebrated my anniversary with my high school sweet heart! Five years and counting.

Essentially this post is supposed to give you an insight as to “Who I am and Why I’m Here…”. I could always say “Hi, I’m Jasmine. I’m 19 years old and live in Toronto. I grew up in Montreal and I am bilingual. I have a dog named Oscar and three other family dogs. I love my boyfriend Tyler & I spend most of my time on a plane.” mind you that isn’t WHO I am. That is in a nut shell what my life is surrounded by. Yes, Some of these thing make me who I am in the long run but I simply can not put my finger on it.

My parents argue as to who chose my name but to cut it short Jasmine is a flower. At the time my name was unique and my parents both loved it. Im 19 but I don’t feel like it! Growing up I’ve always been ahead of my years. I still love being a kid. Watching Saturday morning cartoons or jumping on a trampoline comes before anything! (Not really… I wish)

If I had a pool in my yard I think I may turn into a mermaid! I’ve always been in love with the water. Fun fact: I love water but if for whatever reason I can’t see the bottom… I refuse to even put my toes in. Growing  up I would hesitate swimming near a dock, I felt like water witches would pull me under or perhaps the invisible pool sharks would come and eat me if I were alone!

Montreal will always be home to me. On my first drive back my eyes filled with water as each exit we passed held a childhood memory.

Oscar is my little old puppy. He’s 3 in human years but looks like an old man. He’s a miniature black poodle with a white beard. Our personalities are very similar as he can play of hours but still act responsible. Tyler and I, well you read it earlier he’s the love of my life.

Last I’m always on a plane going to different countries. Fun fact: I’ve travelled to numerous places  but I have only been to 4 places with my loved ones. Before becoming a Flight Attendant I had only been on a plane twice. Once to Vancouver and once to Japan. Otherwise we did road trips.

  1. You’re still young and have so much exploring to do. Each new chapter of your life will come with its own memories, challenges, heartbreak, and happiness. The truth is, no matter how old you are, you never stop discovering new things about yourself. You will only gain more insight as to who you are if you take risks, allow others in, and journey through life without expectation. Expectations will only let you down when they are not met. Let the only person who can ever let you down be yourself.

  2. I like what you said about those facts not being who you are. I think one of the purposes of writing is to know ourselves a bit more, and I think you’ll see that you are will change as you look back on what you wrote last year, two years ago, three years ago. 🙂

    1. This journey has brought me so much closer to myself as you mentioned! I have developed this love for writing because I feel better about myself as I am confident I know who I am now! I have already started ready back a month ago as that’s when I started blogging and woahhhhh! Is all I have to say! I have grown so much! Looking forward to reading it next year!
      Thanks for your feedback!
