New Endeavors

It has been a while since I blogged and for good reason. I have been supremely busy, which for me, is great. And I have taken the plunge and am working on my first book. I learned a few things since I began. First of all, writing a book is truly a process, especially the type of book I am writing. My book is an autobiography but not in the traditional sense of AndrĂ©a Danielle DeBerry was born March 15th, 1981, blah, blah, blah. My book will be periods of times in my life, sectioned into smaller sections. The reason I decided to structure it this way is because there were some pivotal periods of time in my life that I need to share with others. I feel deep down that this book is going to be life-changing for me and life-saving for those that read it. I know that this book was destined to happen. I had a loved one ask me yesterday why was I writing the book and what was its purpose. At first I wanted to get angry but then I remembered something about having vision. People , even those closest to us, will not understand the vision or why we have chosen to endeavor  such things. I do not hold this against those who do not understand, it’s not their vision—it is mine. So, for now, I am working diligently on this work of mine. There have been tears shed, frustrating moments, and times in which I just did not want to write but I am continuing on my path and praying that God continue to guide and direct me. I am setting  a deadline of December 31st for this first work to be completed. I will update you guys on the progress!

One Love,
Andréa
