Emotions seal closed doors, but it’s the heart that pries them open. Once we step inside, not only do we find ourselves, we discover our purpose.
In Opened Doors, author Artie Bryant passionately delves into love, pain and the whirlwind of emotions in between through a profound collection of poetry, intricately penned to propel readers into the author’s transparent, visual feast of confessions. As he therapeutically unveils the anxiety hidden beneath the darkness of depression, just when hope seems like a fleeting dream…healing takes place. Not just for readers, but the smooth flow and rhythmic musings deliver the author himself from his painful past. Not only will readers see themselves in the verses, they’ll be inspired to re-evaluate their worth.
Between the pages of Opened Doors masterfully lies an unfiltered plethora of candid testimonies that move readers from the pained contentment of despair, to the inspiring revelation that they are indeed worthy of happiness that is promised to all of us. A poem is but a few words, but the effect of their power remains for generations. Open the door, and take the first step to creative healing.
Fresh Courage to Believe
Fresh courage to believe is a note of encouragement…to those short on hope, struggling to see beyond a painful past or difficult circumstance, or in need of a renewed vision for their lives…those who have fearlessly summoned the courage and strength to take bold steps in the direction of their destiny, despite looming uncertainty…creatives waiting patiently to receive that second wind that will breathe new life through artistic inspiration…anyone trying to find their footing as they transition to a new phase of life, or someone just having a bad day. In one way or another, each piece seeks to remind readers how their unique experiences can serve to strengthen their resolve; how those experiences collectively represent the sum total of their life’s journey, reflecting key elements of God’s ultimate plan for their lives.

Throughout our lives, we face challenges that present us with choices to either battle against change or push us to the next level in our growth. The tests that come with these challenges can be ugly, dark, and heartbreaking. These growing pains make it difficult to recognize the beauty surrounding and hidden within the imperfections. It’s even harder while we’re in the darkness, to have a positive mindset and trust we are being guided towards our light.
According to Keisha Bloise, otherwise known as, The Love Scientist, self-love looks different for each of us. Each one’s journey is personal, imperfectly perfect, and evolves endlessly. Imperfect Self-Love is a collection of poems, quotes, and affirmations to ignite self-love, healing, spirituality, and self-discovery towards overcoming brokenness.
Imperfect Self-Love is based on The Love Scientist’s intimate experiences to empower you to love yourself more freely.
