📩 JoClub sent you a message

Hi there!

JoClub is nothing without our wonderful members, so we thought it would be time to share some more of their stories with you. We really hope you enjoy Leanne’s story as much as we did. We swear we didn’t bribe her to say all of these beautiful things! Thank you for being here ❤️

Leanne's Story

Hola, I am Leanne! You can call me Bella, short for Lady Laleebella, my self-proclaimed title as the Black Queen of Reggae. The moniker comes from the East African city of Lalibela, Ethiopia - a marvel and architectural phenomenon. The name pays homage to my love for Africa and ties to my Jamaican heritage.

📍 Where are you currently journaling from?

I am a Georgia native. I grew up in a small town called Stone Mountain with a large West Indian Community. I am a Jamaican citizen and Caribbean by culture + heritage. When I am not in Atlanta, I am probably somewhere warm enjoying the beach and a coconut jelly.

🦋 Are you going through a transition? If so, what?

Womanhood + Motherhood - 2022 was the first year without my mom so I am learning to heal from the past, and I am ready to start anew. This past year I created a space uniquely my own inclusive of bills, responsibilities, and a marriage. Adulting at its finest.

📖 What qualities do you hope to develop in your next chapter?

Consistency in my writing, Resiliency to be an early riser, and stronger relationships in business. Also, patience to manage my marriage and raise my one year old son.

❤️ What's your passion(s)?

Poetry, Travel, Reggae Music, Handwriting and Acrylic Paint, Dance, Fashion, and Languages.

🌍 What language do you journal in? 🇺🇸🇩🇴🇫🇷🇧🇷

English and Spanish fluently (addicted to new words and perspectives).

Brazilian Portuguese on occasion and in French intuitively/creatively as my latest language obsession.

💬 What do I love about Jo Club?

Writing a poem in cursive to a daily prompt, Joining one of many monthly themed sessions (you have to come to a BYOS), Exclusive member access to monthly challenges and access to the most global community on the internet.

I have made so many international friends from every corner of the planet there is something for everyone to enjoy, and I can't wait to see you there.

Hello hello lovely people! This month we’re sharing the story of one of our most creative members who light up the room every time she joins a session. Kim has been with us for a while and we’re so happy to hear (and share) the story of how she joined JoClub!! The JoClub Team Last summer I went to Staples and bought this cheap soft-cover grid notebook. I was in the midst of the worst bout of burnout I had in a while and I had a mighty need to rant about it on paper. This cycle happens almost...

Hi there, journaler Now that we’re closer to the last quarter of the year (what!?) it’s important to take a step back and plan out the next three months. As you probably could have guessed, journaling is our favorite tool to reflect, assess, and plan. However, to make the most out of it, it’s important to understand what you want from journaling. What do you expect to get from this practice? What is your intention? We asked you about intention-setting on Wednesday and you shared a lot of cool...

🎶 Do you remember…. The 21st night of September…?🎶 Well if you don’t you will now, cause we’re going to journal about it. We are officially entering into our Cozy & Connected chapter of the year.

Because I’m like… damn, who was that naive young lady who thought she could launch 293 projects in 6 months?! My new theme for the rest of 2023 is “slow and steady wins...
