Sesame Street and Autism!

Sesame Street and Autism!


One could say "It's about time". I say, "At least she is here now".

With yellow skin, orange hair and green eyes, Julia is the symbol of change. For parents of autistic children and supporters of autistic families, Julia is a relief. Julia is a reminder that autistic children are not forgotten. I have a friend that has an autistic son. She always tells me how hard it is for her to explain to others what autism is and how they can help when they see a meltdown in public.

Julia will be an awesome change to the classroom, helping students to understand what the word "unique" and "different" mean. It will also be a delightful addition for adult conversations where adults can help to encourage and educate each other.

By all means, we are all unique.

My sister sketched these designs on the canvas and then painted them. Lovely.





Life is About Discovering Who You Are!

We all have our days when we sit back and daydream about what we might be doing right now if we weren't doing what we are currently doing.

Did you follow that?

Sometimes our present situations cause us to ponder on the "what-ifs" in life. I don't believe in regrets. I believe that everything that happens in life is meant to happen exactly as it has happened to bring you to your defining moment. Sometimes that means that you have to crawl through the mud to finally use the strength that you never knew that you had. It might even mean that need to switch paths in the middle of you walking along your journey towards a goal that you thought you wanted.

Discover who you are! That's the purpose of life! Life isn't meant to be solved like an equation as if there's a certain formula to guarantee your success or happiness. Have fun in discovering who you are! Realize what you want and what you need to do in order to experience your ultimate success and happiness!

30 is awesome!

I'm 30 and awesome!

Time flies when you're having fun. Living life is an amazing experience. To be present in every moment and satiated by everything that gears me towards being a better person is a really great feeling.

Every day I achieve goals that I've set for myself. Enjoying every day is the #1 goal on my list. I just give a word of thanks for health, wealth, love, family and friends.

Be thankful. Be appreciative. Just be.
