Can a conversation with a rebel influencer, recorded mid-pandemic, inspire us toward greater self-love and trust as we emerge from the COVID cocoon?
Jetty Nieuwenhuis (pronounced Yeti) is the rebel in question. It’s an appropriate modifier to a term that absolutely conjures images of well-connected content creators seemingly unencumbered by life’s petty worries.
Influencer is overwhelmingly associated with youth. When it comes to the typical influencer credentials, Jetty aged out of the ingenue mold before she even began. Those few additional years have gifted her with wisdom, experience, and a healthy dose of authentic middle-finger mindset.
I love Jetty because when she says living your life is the ultimate act of self-care, it’s not a hollow platitude; it’s her ongoing practice. A survivor of Lyme disease and bulimia, Jetty gradually grew into a place of listening to her body and mind rather than other people.
So, here we are, ever so slowly move beyond our protective bubbles. We’re bound to bump up against our fears out there. That’s okay. Maybe we know ourselves a little better than before. Perhaps we’re more adept at focusing inward as we proceed outward. As Jetty says, we can live life on our own terms.
There’s no time like the present.
