Growing up I never had a knack for writing. To be completely honest, English was one of my least favorite subjects. I was a math nerd! If it dealt with numbers and equations, I was all over it.
My love for writing didn’t come until I was an adult. It was through journaling and this blog that I found my passion for writing, and discovered that I was pretty good at it.
I can say that I’ve lived a pretty interesting life, and have joked about writing a book about my experiences with a motivational and inspiring twist, but I lacked the confidence needed to execute it. I found myself doing a lot of negative self talk. “ You’re not a writer”. Your life isn’t really that interesting”. “How can you help and inspire people with the things you’re still struggling with?” Hence why this book has been a project for several years now.
How many dreams have you talked yourself out of? Stop it!

This year I added completing my book to my 2019 goals. I’ve talked about this book in my blogs and on my YouTube channel. How’s it going you ask? Pretty good. Slow progress, but still progress! What I know for certain is that this book needs to be written, because in doing so, it will be help so many women, young girls and humans in general!
I have my title, my cover and the format. It all seems so surreal but I am excited! In writing this book I had to get real comfortable with being vulnerable, whew! I mean, I share on this blog, but in my book I’m baring my soul. It’s necessary and has already led to some healing!
Was writing a book a dream of mine? Not in the past, but it definitely is now. My book will be a Dream Fulfilled! I hope you’re excited with me. New Book coming soon! Jazmine the author, who knew?!?
