Empower HER Story ~ Simply Jaelicious


“When you stand and share your story in a empowering way, your story will heal you and your story will heal somebody else. ”

Iyanla Vanzant



In life, we come in contact with many different people. Count it as a blessing, if you meet someone who inspires you! Truth is that we all have a story. We all are on a journey for success in some way, shape or form. We all have a dream. We all can empower others to find hope, inspiration, meaning and make a change.  But it all starts with sharing your story. That is exactly what Jael Perkins has being doing for the last 4 years. This is her story……..


My name is Jael Perkins but most people know me as “Simply Jaelicious“. I started blogging in the middle of 2014. When I first started I had no idea what I was doing but I knew I had a message for people like me.

At the time I struggled with my weight and I was suffering from severe depression and anxiety. For a long time I didn’t know what to talk about, I was beating around the bush for a year plus. I finally decided to talk about fashion and personal style because it’s something I was familiar with. I slowly found my element and people came around to read what this loud mouth little girl was writing. I introduced my pain through my outfit posts. People finally got a glimpse into my life, what I went through daily as a person that suffers from anxiety, depression and low self esteem.

Simply Jaelicious has been my saving grace. I witnessed first hand how nasty people can be but I’ve also seen how people can be kind. People were so kind to me, they uplifted me and gave me the courage to continue.

My advice to anyone that might be in the situation I was in when I started blogging is to continue. Whatever you’re going through right now is only temporary. Take the good with the bad, take the stones and build a house. People will be nasty and try to bring you down but let it uplift you instead. You got this! Go after your dream with your whole heart and don’t let anyone stop you.
