Always know how VALUABLE & UNIQUELY beautiful you are.

Hi! I am Reta Jayne.  I help women learn to love themselves again (or more!) through no-bull discussions about mental health, self-care, & more.

I am a wife, a mom, & mulatto. I am imperfect. I am human. I am a Christian. I have bipolar disorder. I am brutally honest. There are always (at least) two sides to me: Confidence & Chaos. This is my therapy & maybe yours too. This is where I unload my brain…

Stay plugged in here & always know how VALUABLE & UNIQUELY beautiful you are.

Are there more important things to worry about? Of course. We need a roof over our heads & food in our bellies. We need to feel like we aren’t on guard at all hours of the day. But, we...
