For awhile now I have thought about writing a book, I first began my journey as a writer and public speaker on Twitter. It has taken me a long time to find my voice. Public speaking does not come naturally to me, I’ve been a writer for many years, but I’m very shy, therefore public speaking does not come naturally to me. –I think that writing a book, is for those who are accomplished, have lived life, and have already found success. Then I would be the opposite in that case, not yet achieved in life, why the timing of a book, doesn’t really make sense to me at all.
I have been a Blogger since 2013, professionally, with a beginning following of 2,000 earned, which then turned into a following of 90k per hashtag, upon founding the hashtag #bloggingcampaign with permission from Brady Campaign LA’s President. I have always wanted to make a difference, however, was never quite sure how. It just so turns out that while in Law School, some turn of events changed my course in life, and now I am where I am now, had it not been for those events, I would not have assembled a campaign for everyone, to help everyone cope with the times, cope with trauma, and find peace of mind. That was my main objective.
Overtime, writing online, I have found myself, and found my voice, and hopefully have helped others to find theirs too. That was not on purpose, but a positive reaction to my writing, for which I am proud. –It takes a long time to earn respect in the writing world, it’s a very challenging profession, not for amusement purposes, but for everything professional about the concept of writing for others to read and understand make clear themselves, their surroundings, and hopefully understand you better, from the subjective point of view you provide for their understanding of you.
I have not led a difficult life, nor experienced hard times, it was only until after I left Law School that my life changed its course. I tried to maintain steady footing, by enrolling in a different Law School, Thomas Jefferson School of Law, my goal was always to go to Law School since 2006, and finish, but that has not happened for me yet. I plan to return to School January 2018, and finish my LLM, and complete my Dissertation in Risk Management and Compliance, I started 2013, a two year program, while working on and off as a paralegal, and now an Insurance Company on Melrose. –Having a Career and finishing school is not an easy task but can be done.
All my life I have wanted to have a career, a career in which I could wear a suit to work, and be respected professionally. Those are the jobs I have applied to since 2008, jobs in Century City. When I got my first job in Century City 2015, I was elated, it has always been my dream to work in Century City, as a paralegal. In 2015, I applied to 200 jobs, and got 5 Interviews, 2 in Marketing (in the Valley and Culver City), and 3 in Law in Century City. –Its been a long journey, career wise, but I don’t think that my career is over just yet, maybe its just begun. –Its always when you think you’re through, and to no end, cannot return to work and a normal life, that things change for you in the positive. I’ve always been the kind of person, who sets goals, and prepares for disaster, because I have learning disability, I’m the kind of person who creates options for oneself, that comes naturally to me. Likewise I have created campaigns, which reflect that need for options, that’s just who I am.
This is a self-help book, I have been writing and working on since 2013. I hope that this book helps provide insight to the times, that serves everyone’s best beneficial interests in recovery, from trauma and substance abuse. –I think its funny how my troubles with substance abuse in the past, has turned me into a Social Media Advocate in the future. –If you get enough things right about yourself in life, you can help others turn about their lives too in a positive way, to uplift others, not bring them down with you, when you are not doing well. That is my goal, and purpose for writing a book today. Awhile back I once stated:
“People write books for many different reasons. Mine is just personal. When you experience a lot on life, and go through hardships, its only natural to want to share those experiences with others as therapy required, or for the purposes of helping others. My purposes would involve both, to help myself and to help others.
To maintain anonyminity, names will not be mentioned, nor specific stories or anecdotes from my life, which describe and or provide example as to my current outlook in life. That would defeat the purposes of moving forward. My goal is to help provide insight, not to teach, to help provide guided thought processes I have found best when coping with certain issues, but not to recommend that my thoughts are the best way of interpreting events. Always see as you see best fit.” (Blog Post: 1/27/17)
