In the time that I have not been blogging as much, and even during the time that I was blogging, I have been working on a little something for myself. Something that I have always wanted to do, but never really dreamed I could do. And because you guys have followed me and seen me through this journey or mine, you get first dibs on what it is. But… in the meantime, keep reading.
I know that I said in a previous blog that I was not going to go back to the past, that I was going to leave it where it belongs (“right behind me, kissing my ass” were my exact words I think). However because of what I am about to offer you, I want do some reflecting first.
See, I have always wanted to write a book. Okay not always, but since the age of 17 or 18 I have been mentally drooling over the idea of being an author of some kind. I used to write poetry in high school, but that didn’t really do it for me. I would write short stories and journal entries and… But none of those things really did what I wanted them to do, for myself, internally. Even still, the older that I got and the more that I went through, the more the hunger to write a book grew in my belly. It grew all the way into this painful beast…Until 2020 hit.
As I have mentioned in blogs before, this year was the year to sit down and sink or swim for me. I had so much time to myself and so much brain power to use, it was almost inevitable for me to start following some of the dreams that I had put off because I “didn’t have time”. The dreams that “I would get to one day”. The dreams that forever seemed to live in my retirement years, whenever that was. But, when the going go rough, I got going. I took a public speaking class, and have reaped some of the benefits of that. I bought my first car, moved into my own apartment, etc. But, the thing that I am most proud of…the thing that I want to share with you…
I wrote my first damn book. And it is everything that I want it to be. I could sit here and spill out thanks and gratitude, but I am not trying to cry all over this keyboard. At least not right now. But, I do want to thank you all for the support and offer you the chance to get first dibs on the book 10 days before other folks. Do the Work: Let’s Heal by Finding Jaymee is officially out on Amazon!
As you will read in the description, this book brings my journey to you, highlighting some big things that I had to do internally in order to heal and promote my own positivity, growth, and all the things. I won’t give too much away, but HAPPY READING.
Thank you to all of you that have supported me and continue to support me on this journey of life. And of course, thank you for allowing me to be part of your journey as well.
Positivity, Growth, and All the things,
