About Maya McDonald

If you've been following the adventure on Facebook, Maya's Monday Motivation has served as a social media space for self-care and community care since 2015. These weekly affirmations have reached hundreds of beautiful people, and hopefully compiling some of my best thoughts into a book might allow hundreds, or thousands, more people to make room for their stories in this world.

Thanks to the folks who have been with me since the beginning; listening to my rants about work, school, relationships, trauma, successes, failures, and everything in between. For those who might be new to M3... welcome, and I hope you enjoy your time along for the ride.

This book will be the first project of many (hopefully!), which highlights the ways in which life can be complicated but worth sharing and talking through and living without (too many) regrets. I want to inspire you to live unapologetically, and to question everything - including me - in your pursuit for a full life.
2 of 50 patrons
50 patron heroes would be the driving force in getting me connected to an illustrator who can bring my words to life (because they deserve to be paid, right?)

Having an illustrator would also take a load off my shoulders and give me time to upload a few videos of my progress on this book and in my life, too, if you're interested in that.
