Today is the last day of Autism Awareness Month. While I try to share my experiences of dealing with Autism in my family often - to foster meaningful conversation, point to resources and work to lessen stigma - it seems more than appropriate to amplify that sharing now. I want to be a part of fostering a culture - online and in real life - that creates safe enough spaces for people to feel they can share.
Set yourself up for a winning week with these 5 𝒆𝒂𝒔𝒚-𝒍𝒊𝒌𝒆-𝑺𝒖𝒏𝒅𝒂𝒚-𝒎𝒐𝒓𝒏𝒊𝒏𝒈 tips. Example: Think “flexibility”. Rigid thinking makes for tough days. I plan as much as I can ahead of time, but kids, friends, family, car trouble, life. . . stuff happens. Have a plan B and allow for extra time & patience when needed. This is just one of 5 helpful tips that will hopefully help you SEIZE your week.
I hope I never forget these days. In fact, I'll be careful to make sure that I don't. I may not have all of the money that I need or desire right now, BUT I am fully confident that I will attract, work for, earn, grow, keep, be gifted with and otherwise come to a place of full financial abundance. I did not always believe that, so I am grateful - even now before it fully manifests - for the belief. I know it will happen for me. I won't stop until it does.
My youngest son has been quite a trooper. Near the top of this year, we realized what I had already suspected. . . that he was on the Autism spectrum. It's a journey that has brought many changes. Changes are not easy on little kids, especially those with sensory differences. Truth be told, sometimes changes can be too much for even adults, sensory issues or not. Read more about how this little guy can give us all a lesson on adapting to change like a champ.
