Today is just one of those days…
I’m working hard on slowing it down…
letting go of my agenda…
responding to what my kid is REALLY saying…
and remembering to breathe deeply…
because this child does not deserve to be painted with my stress
I am going to shed the brittleness I’ve sometimes donned
extrapolating a small thing and stirring it up with worry
Instead I can let every little thing be good enough
I can choose to enjoy the pace
I can be mindful that in this moment
…like every moment
is framed in choice
30 Days of Autism is a project designed to fight stigma, promote civil rights, and increase understanding and acceptance for those who process and experience the world differently.

Just when I think I can’t learn any more from you…I do… All of the time. Thank-you 🙂
Ah… Serena!! What a lovely thing to say. You are always so supportive! I appreciate that very much…
Hugs to you and your little sweethearts!
Lovely. Just what I needed to read after a stressful week. Thank you, Leah.
Thanks Lori 🙂
Isn’t it so lovely to just stop and be there with your boy? I figure that we have all the time in the world…. so we must endeavour to slow down and really appreciate life and our kid/s.
You are so right… I have often thought that this is one of the gifts of our journey – the ability to slow time and perhaps even break the time/space continuum…
perfect. love it!
Neither of you deserve it. Love this message.
Thank you so much, Brenda. I am honoured that you popped by… Love your blog!!

So true! I think I might print it out and post it on my fridge. Thank you for your eloquence.
Thank you so much! I am honoured to make the fridge, as at our house… space on the fridge is coveted 🙂
