My IDSC Journey - The Book

I asked the question and you answered. 

Yesterday I asked if I should continue blogging or write a book. 

Overwhelmingly people encouraged me to write a book. 

So I am going to do just that. 

I am actually very excited to do this. 

When I departed from the IDSC I knew that I needed to process the entire journey. 

I knew that I wanted to be sure that I did that in a healthy way. 

In order to do that in a healthy way I began counseling, (which I will share more about in my book.)

I share this now because one of the things my wonderful counselor told me is this: 

"One day, believe it or not, you will be able to understand this journey fully and when you do, you will and should write about it."

I told him I thought that would be impossible. 

I did not think it would be impossible because I did not know how to write. 

(Which I have my flaws. lol)  

I though that emotionally/mentally that would never be possible. 

Well, the impossible is happening and I am more than thrilled!

It is possible. 

Thanks to support from my incredible husband. 

Incredible family. 

Incredible friends. 

I have made the decision to write a book. 

So the next few months I am going to sit down and put "pen to paper" on my computer. 

(Not this one, a new one. This one has had way too many glitches over the years!) 

And I am going to write my story! 

I will share little stories about day to day on Facebook still.  Stories about MaryEllen. Daily life etc. 

But The Story I am going to write in a book. 

A portion of the proceeds I will be donating to an organization which I will announce in the book. 

The other portion will go to Dreamers Merchants Coffee Company which I will use to continue to hire individuals of all abilities in an inclusive environment! 

The new journey begins now!
