Hard to Keep Happy. :)

Updated: Mar 28, 2023

As an author, the number one question I get asked is “why did you write the book?” The truth is the reasons behind writing any book are often deeply personal and unique to everyone. For me, writing my book was a culmination of years of experiences, passions, and a desire to make a difference in the world via the written word.

Growing up, I was an avid reader and as I got older, my love for reading turned into a passion for writing. The writing was a way for me to express my thoughts, feelings, and ideas in a creative and meaningful way. I found solace in putting my thoughts down on paper and turning them into stories that others could enjoy. In other words, writing became a form of self-therapy.

Over time, I started to realize that writing wasn't just a hobby. I wanted to write not only to entertain but also to inspire, and challenge readers to think critically about the world around them. This desire to create meaningful content was the driving force behind my decision to write my first book, Hard to Keep Happy: How to Maintain Lasting Joy in Challenging Times.

My book was inspired by personal experiences and challenges. Throughout my life, I had faced difficulties where I felt lost and unsure of my purpose. Writing my book became a way for me to explore these feelings and share them with others who may be going through similar struggles. It was a way for me to use my own experiences to help others find hope and inspiration.

Hard to Keep Happy is a call to action, a self-help book about being wise enough to be content with who you are now but also courageous enough to strive for prosperity and growth. If you do nothing in life, it’s like sitting in a boat on the ocean with no sail and no oars. You’re just going to float where the currents take you. That can seem noble and freeing, until the point where you dashed against the rocks. You must find a way to get that boat to shore!
