Jennie has the amazing superpower of Overdoing Everything: Doesn’t matter if it’s cookies, carrots, or cardio, if it feels good, there’s a chance Jennie will try to hold onto it …just a few seconds too long. Perhaps considered evidence of this “Feel Good” issue, she’s in recovery for both sex addiction and alcohol, a former award-winning pornographic film actress and reality T.V. star.
Now, as a new mother, when things don’t Feel Good, Jennie feels the pull to hide in her phone. A big ouch came on Super Bowl Sunday. Jennie was looking up feel-good drama about Ronnie from Jersey Shore and missed her daughter’s first step - a tiny shuffle from the coffee table to the couch. Everyone else in the room saw it, including Jennie’s husband, and everyone saw that Jennie missed it. Leaning into this small but painful moment helped her pivot away from the hope of feeling good and toward a values-driven life with values-informed phone use.
She hopes this challenge helps you too.
