My name is Gena, and...
"I desire to love and inspire others"
I am a twenty four years old. My mission: to evoke self-love in everyone I meet, all the while inspiring myself and others. I hope to create a safe place to build up my esteem, while motivating others.
Desire Love & Inspire is my online diary. It is a personal take on lifestyle blogging, documenting my daily life, thoughts, words, events and inspiration. One day I could write about style, makeup, personal reviews, books, hauls and/or travel; and the next day I could write on poetry, events, cafes, Toronto life, worldly events and inspirational excerpts. My variety of discussions leap and as you will come to know, the same mentality applies to my personality. I am a bubbly smile enthusiast who adores animals and cultivating self-care practices. My blog is totally and completely my free and personal space.
I decided to start my blog 4 years ago with the push from loved ones. I originally started blogging for a car dealership to promote vehicles. My affinity for writting grew over times and the decision to cultivate my passion of writing for myself was simple. I knew I loved writting for work, so what would happen if I wrote for myself and for those who share the same passions? Desire Love and Inspire was born shortly after my trail with VSCO's journals.
A few things to know about me: I love fashion! Style blogs are some of my favourite to pieces to write on. I adore anything and everything revolving around makeup, bunnies, and making people laugh. A smile on someone's face truly makes my day. There is no length I will not go to try and help someone, to make their day, or to be a vault and sounding board to alleviate any stressors or saddness. I am an advocate for the underdog, and enjoy quality time with friends and family. I enjoy the spontaneous girl's day dancing the night away and in the flip of a coin enjoy cuddling up in a blanket on the couch, while watching the latest horror flick. I am a holiday and season junkie. This can jump from Christmas to Halloween, summer to fall looks in a snap of a camera. I am an enthusiast for the little things in life - they make my smile grow from ear to ear.
My most recent affinity is finding cafes to read my latest poetry find. I love to travel and hope to touch my toes in all 7 continents. I hope to visit almost every state in the U.S and my ultimate goal is to visit parts of Africa. That being said, my travel bucket list varies from Fiji to Thailand, from all inclusive resorts to a trans-Canadian car pool adventure. My dream career as teacher is coming into fruition. I eventually want to become a guidance counsellor or perhaps a social worker for the district school board. I hope to make an earnest living helping the lives of the young, moulding them for our future. But most importantly, making the classroom a safe place for creativity, personal development, for equality and to be the teacher that you look back on and say they made a difference. I love writing and anything that pulls to my creative passions/strengths. I hope there is an entry of my blog that speaks to you. Sending everyone unconditional love and positivity. I keep my blog open to comments and the ASK section if anyone would like to meet, chat or if you ever are in need of guidance. My ears, arms and heart are always open.
