The book takes you on a journey of 180 days towards affirmations that will bring about self confidence, and awareness. My next installment of self help to be released in February of 2021 is “ 360 ..words to Live By” … 
A self-care book exploring a journal of daily affirmations. The affirmations are reflective of life experiences. Its purpose is to build a better sense of self over the span of 180 days! The genisis of this book was birthed from a trying time faced in 2020. From the surge of the pandemic, to many other turmoils facing society, this book was created as a simple beacon of hope through the use of affirmations.
