I am happy to tell you that I have been writing like a lunatic on what will be my first book! I have been in love with words for as long as I can recall, and I decided that I will never know how I can do writing and publishing if I never give it a try! Of course, writing here is my first love, but writing for a new project is very exciting. I am going to be setting up an account on UpWork, and Fiver, to write for others and help them to acquire their own little slice of the blogging world. Both of these projects are very exciting for me, and while I am terrified, I am confident that with determination, and an insane amount of hard work, I WILL be successful in the way that is perfect for me!
I cannot begin to tell you how much passion I have to share my experience with others… to give them hope in various ways… to let them know they are not alone in their struggles. Perhaps that seems obvious considering the subject matter of this blog, mental health, bipolar disorder specifically. Even more exciting, I will detail each step I took to get to the beautiful place I am at … my state of Becoming the best me. In doing so, it is my hugest hope that others will be able to make life changes for the better, and that they too will experience the amazing gift of the present moment given by finding what they are passionate about… and then doing them! Everything else in the world will start lining up.
I want to share how I came to understand this, because I know it can truly help so many people. Life is short, and it is a beautiful ride that nobody should miss out on, yet, many do. Life is very hard, but it is so worth the effort. I want everyone to experience happiness, peace, love, contentment… hope. My own experience is one I can draw from, and though my life has been very difficult in the past, by incorporating these four principles; being positively mindful, zero judgement, and love & forgiveness, I became passionate for myself and found different things in life I am passionate about… leading me to the greatest state of “Being” I have ever experienced.
This amazing state of “Being” is something every single person should grow to attain… I cannot explain how wonderful it feels to work on and remove the mental baggage I carried with me for so many years. In losing that mental baggage, I have been able to get other areas of my life better together, and this “better forward motion” marches on. With this wonderful result, I must share it with others, and so I write… my very first book. Exciting stuff right?! I think so….
So, not only am I writing for the book, I will be starting a 2nd blog specifically for the book I am writing. I am very excited to get it rolling… as I look forward to being a positive light for others who are still languishing in the darkness…
