And with that said, it has been a truly insane beginning to 2024; but heading in a much more positive direction than all previous years. On a strict note, I have been putting my foot down to a lot of nonsense that I had to deal with in the past, so I feel like I'm being tested left and right, BUT that has only rang truth to what God has spoke to my heart earlier at the start of 2024.
"You are everything you never were before. You're the smartest, strongest, and most spiritual you've ever been. You are more than capable."
I became so emotional at the thought, but I have been using that as my motif moving forward, and making the right decisions as well. Any-who, loads of updates! This year is about giving back to the customers and people who supported me along my journey through all the years. I couldn't have done any of this without you. With nearly 110 books in circulation between friends, customers, and libraries, I've got to say; I really hope my story inspires people in whatever way. Along with that, the AUDIOBOOK IS ON THE WAY.
This was a semi-secret project that took me 2 days to actually record with my dear friend, Terrence Whitmore, and I've got to say, this is probably one of the best--if not the best--quality thing I've ever made and I could not have done it without his help. Chapters 1-13 were recorded on day one and 14-end on the second day. I was physically exhausted from talking and you all know how much of a jabberjaws I am 🤣
The process itself keeps hitting some tedious obstacles though (that's how you know God's in it) but nothing that we can't handle. The book trailer is beyond 200 views on TikTok and YouTube and earlier last year, I met a young lady named Emily who asked for my autograph after having recognized me online! Last year was rough, but the end was worth it for the much needed transition into this year. Charlie sales are well, pre-ordering extended to match the end of the cheapest T-shirt sale I've had yet while my MAIN GOAL has me pointed in the direction of voice-acting.
I am so thankful for the way and the whats God has brought me through and today is the first day I've felt happy in a long time. Love you all!
