I still managed to get really comfortable in my own skin and like myself just the way I am despite certain things being true for me all of my life.

I feel good. I am optimistic about my future and my life. I have the ability to be resilient, grow and adapt or see the glass half full. There are many reasons I chose to just enjoy my life because of the successes I am having in my 30s. I’ll be forty in January 2021. I am finishing up a course this January 2021 also in how to write for children and teenagers. People may not see what I see in myself when they look at me but I feel very good about myself. The successes I have had older were great in giving me confidence in my own ability to do things. I know God is with me. I believe the unseen hand in all of our lives in almighty God the father maker of heaven and earth. I got teased badly as a little girl but I feel attractive at least. I don’t think anyone else is better than I am. I know confidence is sexy. The way certain people portray me isn’t something I care about. I am also very proud in my identity as a black woman. I try to be kind on purpose to others. I want to have an impact also in my dream I had since I was in my 20s to write for children. I want the children to at least like the books I write and even ask me questions about my upbringing. I was born in Brooklyn, New York and I lived there until I was thirteen years old. My mental illness is really hard for me but I am doing well. I got a prescription from God that helped me to sleep much better than I ever have in my 30s. God is the peace in the madness that I can’t explain but am so grateful for. God is my healer.
