Two years ago today....
Today is November 24th 2018. Yesterday was Black Friday, the most expensive, but cheap day of the whole year LOL!!!. The day before was Thanksgiving Day and you already know this so why am I telling you?
Two years ago I was counting down to this day in a big day. It wasn’t because I was eager to eat turkey, roast potatoes, collar greens and stuffing (I’m a Pescetarian so minus the turkey), it wasn’t because I couldn’t wait to get major deals on Amazon, Walmart, Nike or Best Buys; NO! It was because I had taken a leap of faith, I jumped into the unknown, I had worked hard consistently for weeks and created a powerful piece of literary art. I wrote a book, promoted it, and released it on Thursday 24th November 2016. It was Thanksgiving Day and I had become an Author.
I always knew that I would publish a book, I used to write little stories, poems, articles and blogs, but this was official, it was REAL. I was holding my first printed and published book in my hand. I can’t forget that I cried because it smelt good, it had my name on it, it had a barcode, an ISBN number, it was my words on paper, it had a book cover and funnily enough the book cover is my face (the side profile twice). I Did It!
Last year I celebrated the amazing year I had as an Author, with a special flashback video and an event “The Faith And Inspiration Meet-up” that brought me and my family, friends and readers together. It was December 2nd and in Nottingham, UK so it was absolutely freezing cold, but it was a fantastic celebration of what I had achieved. More importantly, a celebration of what God had done in my life. What He had allowed to take place following His promptings to write this book.
Now, 2 full years after publishing Ounce Of Faith And Inspiration, I am the Author of 4 books. When I started writing in 2016, I didn’t imagine saying that 2 years later, but God is GOOOOOOD! I’m the Author, Self-published Author of 4 books and the 4th one is the Black And White Edition of my baby, of my first book. I have a special bond, and connection to each book, so there’s no favouritism around here, but this book started my journey and it was worthy of a second edition and that is FACTS. It’s changed my readers lives, and its changed mine.
To mark this day, November 24th 2018, I have published a special book reading video on the Kayisha Online YouTube channel. I’m reading from Ounce Of Faith And Inspiration Black And White Edition and it’s a very themed video, so check it out and you’ll see what I mean.
The message I want you to get from this blog is that one decision you make to do something great, on one specific day pays off in many ways, weeks, months and years after. Procrastination is an act, if I can call it that, encouraged by the enemy. It stops you from achieving anything. It prevents the journey from even beginning. Step out and do great things, so just like me, you can look back and say “Oh My Grapes..... I did this 2 years ago, 5 years ago and look at all that’s happened as a result of it.” Believe in yourself and the power you have. Don’t listen to what people say. Do what you need to do, do what God has placed on your heart, do what brings you joy, create what the world needs to be a better place, and in years to come you will have no regrets.
