Upcoming book [work-in-progress]

UPDATE: I am re-writing an originally planned book so it has a new title and theme already. Please wait for my revisions here soon!

Hello! Welcome and thank you for dropping by.

It’s always been a long-held dream of mine to author a book that will support and touch humanity. I am fortunate to have had the experience of being published before–one is a sole authorship and the others, co-authorship–although they are about the environment and social development sectors (which are the hats that I proudly I wear, too). This time, I am exerting efforts to write from my other hat, too, and I hope you will accompany me in this journey.

Indeed, the recent years have not been easy to many if not all of us. We’ve been shoved, whacked, kicked (ouch!), and for the luckier ones, still slightly affected in some ways.

Who would have thought that we’d reach that time when many of us will be left jobless, away from families and friends, or feel lost?

Tell me your story and maybe we can run a Part 2 of this book! Or even an entirely new book. I dare you. I think your creative muse is just waiting for you, too.

Now is the perfect time to take up that long-postponed writing dream, or hobby, or travel. We all struggled, grieved, and worried (even until now). I get you. Sometimes, it’s just so overwhelming. Please know that I am with you—in my piggy pyjamas or borrowed shorts from my hubby—imagining that infront of this screen is a beautiful soul. Whether you’re a man, woman, LGBTQ, or even a dog or a cat pretending to be human (or vice versa), I truly know you are here for a reason and that somehow, we are meant to share this moment.

Today, know that you have a new friend. I truly mean that. I’m not saying this as a part of a marketing campaign. Of course, I hope you will buy this book but more than the sales, I care a lot that you will read this book, cover to cover. And that it will move you. And that you can pass it on. Or ask a friend to go get a copy.

Because if there’s one thing that this recent past has taught me—shared pains are more bearable. Just knowing that someone truly cares already means a lot. This may just be one of those books but at least to you and me—this is a pact. That after reading this book, you promise to be wiser and stronger, and yet, kinder to yourself.

Remember that I love you. We may not really know each other but we may have met down the street. Or maybe in a previous lifetime (or lifetimes!). No matter what the circumstances may be, my love is the Big Love out there.

From the same love comes the desire to birth this book. This was actually inspired by one of those amusing memes/eCards where someone was supposed to jump out of a time machine but decided against it because he was told the year was in our current time!

And so, through this book, we’re hopefully learning together and that it will will be useful for you throughout all the seasons of your magical life.

Remember, we RISING and rocking together!

P.s. Do watch this page or Anna’s Trees & Innovations as we’re now seeding! We’ve been delayed by challenges but we’re excited to share that among the four pillars /initiatives of Anna’s Trees & Innovations is One Mandala Creatives & Communications, which will focus on publications (books galore), arts, and culture.
