When I'm challenged to reassess what this blog is for and what's the fuel driving me to keep writing and evaluating.
Designing this blog in the beginning, started with wanting to share a positive message about autism. To convince the world that these children are gifts with a purpose, to be cherished and accepted. That we can all succeed in our own special ways. I believe that, I see that and I so desperately want everyone else to see it too!
Lately, I've struggled between writing with my emotions or writing what's "right" and acceptable.
This blog is a place to share the downs, but mostly ups of raising a child on the spectrum. There are many emotions that come with these hurdles fueled by conscience, society, friends opinions and what I perceive to be the critical "they" out there.
I haven't written in a couple weeks because I've been afraid of the "they" perception. What other people think can be debilitating and really stifle creativity. (Some days I still fear judgement. I'm working on that!)
These articles cannot please everyone and point is to share our failures and successes so that others don't feel so alone and maybe find a glimmer hope.
Bottom line: apologies for being swayed by the "they" and I'll hop back on that horse. We can only succeed if we are strong and united in our message. Total acceptance or bust!
Keep looking for the miracle in every minute. Stay tuned.
