Jenni Checks In

Well, hello!! I just thought I would pop in and say hi, and give you an update!!


Seriously guys, thank you so much for the support and understanding when I did my much-needed hair flip last week. Britney and Tracy have done an amazing job keeping you guys updated. Thank you, ladies! And Rob, Melissa, Mike and Annabelle are doing an amazing job at making me not needed. You guys' rock. I love you all!!


I was never giving up, to those who were worried, I will never give up rescuing huskies or close H3, but I was about to break and that meant a change in the number of huskies I/we would be able to save.


You cannot save lives if you yourself needs saving, so this time, a friend stepped in to save me. Bethany, my friend and one of H3's biggest financial supporters, and I, are working on a plan. A plan to save them all. Will we? Maybe. Maybe not. But we are damned sure going to try. And it starts with us and a little bit of self-care. So, don't worry about H3. Right now, it's in the capable hands of my team and I am taking the rest of the weekend for just that, self-care.


Now tell me, what do you do for yourself when life gets so overwhelming and stressful, that your about to break.

If you do break, will it change your future?


I'll go first.


I hit the compassion fatigue wall hard last week, so Bethany and I are practicing a little self-care by hiking, exercising and eating healthy, amazing foods while strategizing on what's next. Because if I break, it will change H3's future. It will mean less huskies saved. And that's just not acceptable. How about you? Any tips on maintaining a little sanity in this crazy thing called life?

Looks like fun! Hope you’re not in Oklahoma because it’s hotter than heck here. I’m totally high maintenance so when I do self care it’s spa time 😂. I can’t stand being Land locked so the beach is always my favorite for relaxation. Eating well is good therapy. Fish veggies etc. be well! And get rejuvenated.

Great to see you taking a break! I hope you are able to do this more often. When im at breaking point i need alone time and just either retreat to my room, meditate, just get away even if its just 5 milea away to a change of scenery. Being mindful then helps me refocus, clear my emotions and get back. Ppl in life saving positions like you, doctors, police, social workers, counselors, youth crisis counselors all need to take frequent breaks to recharge their mental energy, since the emotional drain is overwhelming. I love you and glad to see you. Britney is rockin it. So are Tracey and team!! You are lucky! Huskies are lucky.

In the past, I would spend time with my dad and we had great conversations. He always listened and had great advice. Sadly he passed away in April. He was in the hospital and I just knew he wasn’t going home. My kids are a huge help to me. The one who truly has helped me is my Iris. I have a wonderful support system that has kept me from drowning in grief and depression. I also knit so that helps me as well.

I make sure to get a daily 30 minute all to me time in- exercise, yoga, driving through the car wash 8 times- whatever it is that disconnects me from the world and allows me to just relax and focus on my own mental well being

This might not be a popular one but I recommend reading Nietzsche and Ayn Rand on selfishness and following some of their advice. Anyway, better to set firm boundaries and save the ones you can in the long run, than to push yourself until you can't do anymore!
