I’m just a small town girl with a big imagination!!!
I come from a little country town called Independence, MS. I grew up in a Christian home with both parents and 3 siblings. I’m happily married to Mr. Keven Wooten. We got married at a young age, so we have had the opportunity to watch each other grow into our own person as well as grow up together. We are totally different people, yet we are the same person! We’ve struggled together, prayed together, cried together, and we have both made some horrible mistakes during this journey but every day we both wake up and choose each other! I love that guy! He knows how much I love to write and he has always supported my hobby!
I’ve always had a passion for writing. From short stories to poetry, I’ve always been intrigued by reading the thoughts and imaginations of other people! Since I was a little girl, I’ve always wanted to be a writer.
At one point in my life, I was going through so much and it seemed like I couldn’t find anyone to talk to. I didn’t trust anybody and I have never been good at verbally pouring out my feelings (it makes me feel like I’m complaining).
I felt like I would feel so much better if I only had one friend to share my deepest thoughts with. I’ve always had friends, but at this particular time I wasn’t ready to talk to people. As I previously stated, I didn’t trust people and I felt like I was at my lowest. I remember praying for God to give me the strength to talk to the right person or else I would lose it. And at that moment, He gave me an idea!
Sooo, I ran to Dollar General and picked up a journal. I remember telling myself “You keep asking for someone to talk to that understands exactly how you feel and you don’t want everybody to know your business….so, meet YOURSELF!”
At that point, I started journaling. It seemed as if I would write and leave my emotions on the page! Once I put the last period on the page, I would feel relieved! Before I knew it, I was writing everything: thoughts, ideas, problems, songs, poetry, or even short stories. After writing countless notes in my phone and going through several journals, I was inspired to start blogging!
I’m excited and I hope you are too. I know you may be asking if this is my blog, why should you be excited? Well, beloved, this is more than a blog to me! This is a new leaf, a blank page, a grand opportunity to create something magical out of my ashes. And guess what!? It can be the same thing for you! I encourage you to find your purpose and pursue it with passion!
