I am confidence & chaos all rolled into one kinda-middle-aged woman. Expressing myself through written words is my therapy. No bull self-care strategy & mental health advocacy is at the heart of nearly everything I write.


Here you will find informal brain dumps, step-by-step instruction, & everything in between. You’ll even stumble upon a bit of fiction! Topics center around self-care, mental health, confidence, life transitions, entrepreneurship, faith, & family. Have fun exploring.


Going on a self-care journey & embracing mental health concerns doesn’t have to be a solo venture. Connect with others seeking to do the same by joining our online Facebook community: You are crazy beautiful.

ABOUT reta jayne

Hiiiii! Welcome.

I am Reta Jayne, a kinda-middle-aged wife, mom, & mulatto. I am imperfect. I am human. I am a Christian. I have bipolar disorder. I am brutally honest.

This site is my therapy & maybe yours too. This is where I unload my brain… & in doing so, I bring you along with me as I share & grow my creative writing & learn to love myself more, navigate mental health issues, & practice better self-care.
