Excerpt One:

Introduction

My name is Celisha J. I have been through a lot, learned, and am better because of it. I am a firm believer that every lesson is a blessing. God has saved me so many times. I know he did this because he has something bigger planned for me.

My prayer for this book is that it helps women and children who have gone through the same or similar situations to know that they don’t have to allow the traumas of their past to keep them from being successful. I believe that God has a plan for our life, but we did something to alter that plan along the way. He did not intend for us to struggle or have a hard life. He allows us to choose the path we want to go on. The good thing is he is that he is Always there to pick us up when we fall. We were born for greatness.

Hold yourself accountable for your mistakes and forgive yourself and those who hurt you. Forgiveness is for you. I want people to know you can be the best you that you allow. No one says it will be easy, but the main thing to remember is that you are responsible for you. I believe that the only person you can truly believe in life, who won’t let you down, is God and yourself. In order for you to crawl out of the slump of being abused, hurt, let down, controlled, and battered is, your faith in God and the belief that he has better for you. He does not want us to live in our past. He intended for us to learn from it and allow our past to help other people gain strength, but if we tell our stories and we have not grown from what happened to us, then who can we really help?

I have done some things in my past that I am not proud of, and this book tells you my story and how I remember it. No, it is not everything, but the book will tell you the things that stood out the most to me. I have learned a lot and grown from my mistakes, and I have decided not to allow the embarrassment, pain, and struggles from my past to hold me back, so I am releasing it in this book.

This is my Ugly Truth!

What is the sweetest thing someone has done for you?

The sweetest thing someone has done for me is to accept me the way I am for what I am.

How would you spend ten thousand bucks?

There are several things that I have lined up for me to spend ten thousand bucks. For starters, I need to invest in my upcoming book, the sequel to “I Survived”. After that, I need to do marketing and advertising for both my books, for which I will have to spend some money. I have my website up and running for you to look at – www.celishaj.com. I need to ensure that I brand myself properly in a professional manner for which I would need to spend some money.

Where do you get your best ideas?

I get my best ideas from my own life, the people around me, my own life experiences, from my own truth of life.

What comes first, the plot or characters?

I would prefer to take the plot first and then place the characters accordingly.

What does your main character do that makes him/her special.

My main character is me. My life, my journey, the hardships, and challenges that I have faced, the transformations and healing that I have gone through, all these make me special in what I am today.
