How this book was created: 

Shantinique enjoyed writing and often used it as a form of relief from emotional pain. Throughout her life she would write little notes that soon became a stack of papers taking up space! Around October 2018 she took all those notes out and began to read them. As she read she noticed how inspiring they were and how they helped motivate her life’s path. It was at that moment that she decided to turn those little notes into a book. “Originated Self: How to develop self-love and inner happiness” was originally titled “Originated Self: Unorganized thoughts of a woman who grew spiritually” but had to be transformed into a story that spoke to the hearts of many. After one day of reading the notes and deciding that it would become a book.. The book was created and published months later.
