Hi, I’m Jei-Nhy. Writer. Researcher. Life long learner.

My name is Jei-Nhy and I am a curious soul who values balance, wisdom, and self development.

COVID-19 has really took center stage this year. As with most of the world, it really threw my life off course. I had to take a closer, deeper look at my priorities and my life. As a result, I made some decisions and set some new intentions choosing to focus on things that matter the most in my life while balancing the means to support myself. I am starting with a deeper dive and application of my core values (found in my personal vision statement). Back to basics, if you will.

Moving forward into 2021, my intention is to live a more mindful lifestyle. This includes living with intention and purpose opposed to living a reactionary lifestyle.

Curiosity is a trait I value and nurture so reading, writing (including good old fashion snail mail), and research are hobbies I enjoy the most. Looking up stuff is something I’m constantly doing. I also love the occasional cross-stitching project and I’ve been collecting postcards since grade school–from places I travel to and from others around the world through Postcrossing.com and pen pals.

What’s in a Name?

So, my name. Just a tad bit unusual? My name is pronounced jay-nigh. It’s a Chinese name with a Chinese spelling, given to me by my Hawaiian-Chinese grandparents, and comes from the Ingrid Bergman movie The Inn of the Sixth Happiness.The name was inspired by the actual life of Gladys Aylward and means “one loved by all” or “beloved.”
