There is so much joy in writing – I am certain that the majority of us during lockdown were able to utilise our journals, laptops and notepads to write what was on our hearts, what we learnt during the day and our expectations of what we desire to see come to fruition.
I for one am a strong advocate of words and writing down affirmations. During September 2020, I decided to start writing my fifth book, Confident Face – Embracing your Authentic Beauty. I took the time to understand the importance of words, my thoughts, emotions and ultimately, how my writing skills can impact and positively impact my community. I traced back into certain seasons of my life where I had to dig deep and talk about the times where it was uncomfortable, to make my audience realise that not all that glitters is gold.
I decided to write about my inconsistent journey with skincare and how I was inspired to talk about my journey with my skin. My first book; It’s Time to Heal published in 2016 was the first starting point as I briefly touched up on it at the time to talk about what I encountered. I knew that my journey was not about me, but those who have similarly had experienced certain breakouts unexpectedly. I had come to the decision that what I wanted to do was to be a light in someone else’s darkness by showing a part of me.
Therefore, Confident Face was birthed in 2021. I titled this book Confident Face to make readers understand the importance of embracing who they are, regardless of their flaws. To understand that we do live in an imperfect world where plans won’t always go the way as expected. I’ve learnt that through it all, there is someone that sees and knows everything about what we go through and that we will never be along wandering about aimlessly. I briefly spoke about the vision of Confident Face on my YouTube channel which you can watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siXtI8_sx7I
In a pandemic, you can still be confident to start that business idea; in a pandemic, you can still get back on track and build your finances up; in a pandemic, you can go beyond your emotions and make a lasting impact to inspire those around you. Don’t allow your circumstances to make you feel inadequate or wanting you to give up. You have made it this far and there is so much more you’ll have to go if you want to finish strong. The race isn’t for the swift; anything that is going to be impactful takes time.

Remember that writing is a way to release what is in your heart on paper; you don’t have to go through life alone. There are people who go through what you face knowingly and unknowingly. Be a light to your community and let them know that they have what it takes to write their book.
