The morning light has yet to peel back the dark sky, and here I sit at a coffee shop, cozy in my pajamas from the night before. I type tirelessly on this laptop, word after word, trying to find the right ones to explain the most painful times in my life.
The drive to write my story is spoken to me in my most peaceful moments throughout the day. Sometimes the nudge to type is so strong, my body calls for it like the caffeine I now sit and sip. I'm not sure where these written works will lead. I don't have the best grammar or an advanced vocabulary, but I have a calling to write and I'm going to finally answer that call, with no apologies.
When I was little, my older brother gave me the nickname Bean. When I hear it now, it makes me smile and think of a time when there was no worry, no grief, and no darkness. I've always been a bit of a Deep thinker, to a fault, and I wanted to blend the beautiful innocence of my youth with the deeper side of who Gina is now. Thus the name, Bean Deep.
I hope you will all follow along, as I write about everyday life, lessons I have learned, paragraphs from my book, quotes that inspire me, perseverance, grief, and beautiful things I find along the way. Please join me here, Insta: bean_deep or FB: /groups/beandeepginacrotts
