I’m Back! Important Update!
This is likely to be a bit long winded but I hope you’ll read what I have to say, as this is important and regards the site as a whole, although it’s also rather personal.
First, some good news. The fall semester at my college has ended, and that means that I have more time on my hands, time to work on and expand the site in a way I’ve sorely needed to.
But with the semester ending also came a revaluation of my priorities. I had to look at myself and and swallow some hard truth’s. And those truths were that I wasn’t giving my all. I was coasting, expecting life to just come easy as it did for the most part through childhood. And that’s not the way the world works. The world challenges you, every day providing hurdles that you can try and leap over or give up and go around. I’ve been saying this for years, telling others around me when they’re having hard days that life is all about the challenges and rising to the occasion. And yet I couldn’t practice what I preached. I was lazy, and I would just walk around. I was proud, and thought that I didn’t need to try and jump, that the hurdles would disappear before me. But that’s not how the world works, not how life work’s. I am no better than anyone else and as such should apply myself as much as other’s do just to keep up. But that’s not what I wan’t to be. I don’t wan’t to just keep up with everyone else. I wan’t to improve myself, and I wan’t to do all I can to improve the life of those around me. That’s why I’m going to college after all. And I realize that in the past year I’ve lost sight of that. But no more. I will stand and I will face my trials. I will work to earn what I desire, and not expect it come come to me on a silver plate. I will swallow my pride and put my everything I have into reaching my dreams. I’m not stronger, smarter or more deserving of something than anyone else in the world. And so I will work for what I desire. And over this summer? That work starts here.
Over this summer I will be posting at least once weekly, a blog post as well as a page update, such as a review of a product or skill that I’ve found useful and think others could as well. The blog posts may be a bit lacking in the beginning, but they’ll be there, as a sign of me putting in the effort and getting into the mindset I need. In a way I’m going to be using this site in a rather selfish way, trying to train myself to do what I need to do. But I hope that every step of the way I am able to help those of you who come here. My dream job is to be a counselor, so I can help people. If I’m serious about that then the best way I can get closer is to help in anyway I can right now, and for me that’s growing this site.
Sorry for the length of this post, but I mean what I say, and in order to do as I say I need accountability. So here it is, for all the world to see. My promise to change, to share, to grow. And I hope that I can help anyone who needs it during that journey. So welcome back, as here I rededicate myself to sharing the Truth Of Autism.
