A Journey To Winning | Writing Saved My Life
October 31, 2012 was the day my life ended and started again. Just a year shy of having moved to Dallas, Texas I made the decision to walk away from my marriage of seven years after years of trying to make it work. Now alone, isolated in a strange new city with no friends or family present for support I found myself at a crossroads. A newly divorced and now single mother of one toddler I was was unsure of everything. Suddenly, and without much warning or preparation, I found myself engulfed by old hurt, anger and pain that I never fully recovered from. Tragedies of the past and old feelings of abandonment began to rise and suddenly with this “failure” under my belt sent me on a rollercoaster ride of depression. Feeling unaccomplished and empty, I knew that I had to do something and fast. Therapy was out of the question so I began the journey of self-healing and clarity through study + daily life practice.
Drawing from my own life's story, I use my experiences as the basis of my writing to ensure that I am providing realistic and relatable content. Known throughout social media as "Jenn Renee", I typically divide my time between raising my daughter, pursuing entrepreneurial goals, finishing my two books and delivering fresh, gag-worthy content. In January of 2016, I took a bold step in a new direction by revealing and sharing my personal story which to my surprise was well received. I created From The Desk of Jenn as a personal and self-accountability diary to help document my mental + emotional growth over time. After over 100,000 shares I realized that the fight against the oppression of Black women in America and my personal experiences to recover and regain my independence, sexuality and freedom was a shared one earning me a following over 30,000 in less than one year.
My creative work has been featured and recognized by xoNecole, Demetria Lucas, D.L. Hugley, Baller Alert, Boyce Watkins, J’Adore Magazine, BlogHer, ThisIsYourConscience, Social Media Samurai, HipHop News 24-7 and more. I am the winner of two weblog awards in 2012 for "Best New Entertainment Blog" and "Best New Lifestyle Blog".
Part of my goal is to not only engage you in meaningful, life altering discussions and assist with the growth out of "victimhood" and into a position of power but I also want to challenge you to be the best person you can by digging deep into your psyche in hopes of finding that "one" thing buried deep within your soul that is keeping you from moving forward.
I want to be a person about ACTION not just talk. Talk is cheap. Talk without work is wasted energy. To do this, I have decided to put together several challenges, workshops and courses to help guide you to the next phase of rewriting your life. ARE YOU DOWN?
