My Definition of Happiness
It wasn’t until I had my daughter that I decided to share my writing talent with the world through writing for children. My happiness comes from making a kid smile when they read my books. I write my books very realistically, so while you are reading to your child or yourself, you can picture yourself as one of the characters in the story. My happiness also comes from personal achievements just knowing that I’m doing something that could possibly better me and my daughter’s future makes me happy.
I didn’t have the self-confidence I have now at one point in my life, and this lack of self-confidence is what blocked me from truly being happy and loving myself. I overcame this over time, and here is how I did it. I started to accept myself as I am, and say to myself I am exactly where I need to be in my life journey. I’m doing exactly what I need to do to carry out my personal purpose. Once I did this, my confidence in myself sky rocketed, and I hope I can help my young readers realize their purpose and strive for the stars in the sky.
