Submitted by Jared Madison 11 months ago.
You know, I came into this world with an idea, with a belief that life was designed to be a grand instrument to experience happiness. I had no idea of pain, hear-break or hatred; yet peoples lives seemed to be filled with more obstacles than anything else. My reality versus my soul's grandest vision was so polar in its opposition that it created a division in who I was and what I believed. This lead me down a road where depression became my very best friend and closest acquaintance. Yet even in my darkest times, there was a small light inside me that refused to go out.
I remember finally being happy for the first time in my life. When that happened, the goodness that I always thought of about life became my reality. My first goal was to share that reality with as many as I could. So, I started an inspirational message of the morning list. I would text my mom and other close family and friends very inspirational messages each morning. I had no idea of the impact I was having on people until that list began to grow and grow. After the amount of people I would message grew, then came the feedback. People were amazed! They would ask, "how do you find all these quotes", "can you send me the website that you find these messages, they really make my day!" I was taken aback because these messages that were impacting people so much, were just something that literally took me minutes to think of. Realizing this I knew I had to reach more people, and in a time period of about 6 months I was able to write my first book that is now available on Amazon.
I wish to share my book of inspiration, and triumph with the reads of values.com the most my story is in the book as well as my insight into different aspects of our lives.
