Hey everybody! Today I’d like to spend some time talking about Inspiration Unbound, and you guessed it, the inspiration behind writing the book!
As many of you are probably already aware, I’ve struggled with anxiety for many years. It can be very difficult dealing with something that makes you feel weak and unable to do even the simplest of things.
Years ago, it was recommended to me by both my therapist and my dad that I write about my anxiety. My therapist noted that in addition to blogging being a way for me to express my feelings and help myself overcome my obstacles, it would also be a good way to connect with others who struggle with mental health issues like anxiety. He was right. I’ve ‘met’ many wonderful individuals on this site and have been able to help myself, and hopefully others, get through their anxiety and learn that we are not alone in our struggles.
Through blogging and writing, I have learned the power of sharing one’s experiences. I wanted to put together a book that would help others stay positive through even the darkest of times and serve as a reminder that one is never alone when dealing with overcoming their obstacles.
When I shared my idea of writing Inspiration Unbound with Gary Ginsburg, he thought it would be cool if we teamed up – I would write the articles and he would write poetry. Knowing that Gary is talented, I quickly agreed and then the process of creating the book began! I truly believe we’ve put together a book that will help inspire and motivate!
I hope that you’ve enjoyed this behind the scenes look at me and Gary’s new book, Inspiration Unbound: With Articles by B.W. Ginsburg and Poetry by Gary Ginsburg. The e-book and paperback version of the book can be purchased here. Thank you!
