“I have observed something else under the sun. The fastest runner doesn’t always win the race, and the strongest warrior doesn’t always win the battle. The wise sometimes go hungry, and the skillful are not necessarily wealthy. And those who are educated don’t always lead successful lives. It is all decided by chance, by being in the right place at the right time. Ecclesiastes 9:11 NLT”
This was the thought and scripture that was running round and round in my head after I published my two books “From the perspective of the child” and “Life on the Street of Readlooks” in December 2017. As a matter of fact that scripture had been running through my head prior to then. I had over worked myself, I felt weak, I felt depleted, the race was a fierce one. I sat down and had an introspection…. I was running on a roller coaster, I had lots of sleepless night devoted to my books. I had a target and it had to be met. I had a lot of personal responsibilities also and everything was taking its toll on me and it wasn’t healthy for me.
I had also taken in a lot of toxicity from the social media, I was brimming with so much contained negative energy that I masked successfully. I sat down and made a decision, I was getting off the social media throughout January.
I didn’t care that I needed to stay on and promote my two new books,
I didn’t care that the book might not be discovered if I decide to take the bait of “time alone” that was calling.
I didn’t care about anything aside myself!
The realization of this gave me an “aha” moment and I realized that self-love, self-care was what I needed to do consistently as an individual in order to continue to be an inspiration and a blessing to my world. That was one of the best decision I made in my life!
I had thought it was supposed to be a break where I won’t have to deal with any mental stress and all that, and so it was until I was taken on another journey of self discovery on a deeper level.
My eyes suddenly became opened to a lot of opportunities around me and I began to re-brand myself.
I received so much inspiration and revelations that I became full to the brim.
My brain was working so fast, I was happier despite the fact that I lost a lot of sleep, I was able to invest valuable time in my writings and develop a better strategy for my social media usage.
As a matter of fact I kept postponing my social media resumption till now. I realized that an unrestrained usage of the social media space is a huge trap even if you are growing a brand.
I realized that the best way to enjoy the social media is to have a strong level of control over it.
I would be writing more on mental wellness as time goes on, and how to guard your mental health from anything that can kill your creativity.
I have a lot of tips, and my time off the social media opened my eyes to a lot of issues.
Till then, I would love to introduce my new book to you. It is an eBook, and I am launching it today on my eBook store. As you can see it up there, it is available for free download. It is about my experience with a violent relationship I was in about ten years ago and the near death experiences I had on several occasions in the relationship.
The deep blue sea is a must have for everyone, most especially ladies and women. There are lots of lessons in there, it is gripping, infuriating and would keep you at the edge of your seat, download your copy and tell your friends to download theirs too.
Finally, I am also creating a platform whereby authors could self-publish their books easily without the stress of publishing and publishers in Nigeria.
Our eBook files on Hadar Creations Publishing is encrypted and your files would be protected against piracy. That was one of the features we watched out for before we purchased our eBook store. I believe every individual has a book in them and Hadar Creations is ready to help put that story out to the world.
Please support my dream and vision by helping to spread the word. I would also greatly appreciate your review on this book on the product page , and I would be very grateful if you tell your friends to get their own copy and also drop their own reviews too.
Thanks for stopping by, I value your presence here. Please share this article with your friends so we can spread the word together
I am back to business now, watch out for my posts every Tuesday and Friday from book excerpts, to free eBooks and articles, you don’t want to miss anyone because it promises to always be educative, eye-opening and inspiring.
Do you know anyone who is frustrated with publishers in Nigeria? Direct them to Hadar Creations, we are redefining self publishing.
