I'm Jarius (pronounced Jarese), and I'm truly committed to building a tribe of self-loving, laughing, and blissful beings. My own chase for bliss started three years ago. I was a stay at home mom for 4 years, and I was ready to pour back into myself. After years of building happy communities in NC, I moved with my family to Tennessee, and I found myself searching for "blissful INergy". The type of excitement that comes from within.
I spent time in TN as an educational advocate building communities and helping communities grow together.
Then, life came at me fast. My family was forced to move 800 miles from our support system to a rural town in Illinois where I knew no one. I knew it was going to be necessary for me to once again create the community I preached about so often.
Two years after moving away from my loving hometown tribe, I opened The Kreative Lounge and Social Kollective, a creative space for tribe building in Springfield, IL. Four years into building an amazing and authentic tribe, I learned how important chasing my calling was going to be for me. My blissful community grew to over 100 women in the Springfield area, and the online tribe grew even larger. I made lifelong friends and connections that would never formed had I not dedicated my life to community-building with empathy and love.
Since relocating back to my home state of North Carolina after the death of my beloved father, I am committed to building an even bigger tribe of INERGETIC and blissful beings through laughing, talking, SOH QUTE Stationery, and other cool ways to stay connected.
I am, simply put, a creative being. When I'm not writing, I am drinking out of a cute mug, watching baking shows, or dancing with my two wonderful kiddos. Music, food, shopping, and whipped coffee all bring me a slice of bliss to my life each day.
Cheers to books, friends, and bliss!
