Get Up and Start Walking is the name of my new book just published. Here is a photo of the cover:
This is something I have wanted to do for a long time. As someone who has suffered with both depression and anxiety, I know how difficult it can be to just even leave the house sometimes. I have been battling against it, trying not to let it control my life. I felt like my life was being wasted and I was determined to win. After successfully coming out of the other side I wanted to write a book to help as many people as I could to do the same.
At first I had those little thoughts like – who cares what you have to say, what do you know, blah blah blah. I started writing but was procrastinating a fair bit. I have always enjoyed writing and I even have a qualification in novel writing. When I was little I used to write pretend newspapers so I figured I could write the book anyway and then decide what to do once it´s finished.
I also try to post lots of positive and motivating stuff on social media (rather then the usual half naked to nearly naked photos people seem to think will make them money by gaining followers these days). One girl who was following me wrote the sweetest message on one of my posts. She said your posts are so inspiring, any time I have a bad day I just come home and see your posts and they instantly make me feel better. That was all I needed to hear to know I was on the right path and this was something I was meant to do. Just knowing I had made one persons day better was so motivating that I had to get the book finished, edited and published.
So here it is, my book, hope that life can be good if we want it enough. Since we are in Spain here is the link (click here) to buy from Amazon in Spain but it is available in other countries if you want to buy it in another currency. It is available in paperback and kindle. If you want to follow me on Instagram then click here. I would love to keep helping brighten up people´s day. I am already looking at trying to get my poems published too, it´s kind of like my life in poems as I have written poems since a young age. Also my next book I want to focus on is succeeding in business so watch this space.
If you buy the book please let me know what you think and if it helps you. Have a beautiful week (especially now we have the sunshine back).
