5-6 years ago, I was an extreme "social justice warrior" lol. I took a big leap into the injustices happening in America. I posted & engaged on IG & FB constantly, worked with various orgs, spoke at events, attended meetings and protests. It was great but man was I burnt out!
People were always sending me content and we had great conversations. But I soon grew tired of being surrounded by all that trauma, violence and negativity. It was beginning to alter my attitude towards life. I needed a change!
Although I wholeheartedly stand by the same beliefs, I now focus on solutions rather than the problems. I'm joyful, optimistic, have better opportunities and I'm networking with the right people! Yes, Life is Good!! "What you feed your mind determines your appetite." - Zig Ziglar

My #intuition has never let me down ✨ even when I have made a conscious decision to ignore it, my own intuition has been correct. Sometimes I have ignored my "gut" feelings and the decision has appeared to be correct for a short while...but alas, the truth, or initial intuition has been correct in the end ✨ the truth will always reveal itself ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨

Your life isn’t yours if you always care what someone else thinks. 🖤

How can you make changes to your thought process? How can you Get rid of them old nasty habits that do not serve you?! Have you ever thought where do these nasty fearful voices come from? Have you ever taken a look back and seen what is hiding in your subconscious mind? Ever wanted to take a leap of faith and start working on yourself to remove what is currently stopping you moving forward?
Les valeurs humaines sont les valeurs qui créent le lien à autrui en touchant l'humanité de l'autre à partir de notre propre humanité.
Ces valeurs humaines sont notamment le respect, l'acceptation, la considération, l'appréciation, l'accueil, l'ouverture, l'entraide, la réciprocité, la solidarité, l'écoute, la bienveillance, l'empathie, la fraternité, l'affection et l'amour envers d'autres êtres humains.
C'est avec ces valeurs humaines qu'il devient réellement possible de mettre en pratique ses valeurs éthiques, telles que la justice, l'intégrité et le refus de la violence. Le rationnel est dans ces cas renforcé par l'affectif. Ce sont les valeurs humaines qui nous permettent de vivre ensemble en bonne harmonie et de contribuer personnellement à la paix
The silence of the night is a blessing for our autistic son. He loves to stay up very late and do his thing without the sound of others. Our satellite connection for the tv did not work anymore since yesterday. Last night he redesigned the tv room so that he could lay a cable to another room. This morning we could watch tv again. We were very surprised. Perhaps an idea for the future for him to work at night in the sound of silence.

For weeks on end it kept our autistic son busy when he was 9: the legend of Plato about the sunken city of Atlantis. He wanted to find Atlantis. He had brought in the atlas and scanned the internet for information. Until he had a very strong feeling where the city had sunk. He thought it would be a good plan to invest in locating the city at coordinates he had indicated......He could not let go of the idea until he discovered the Atlantis hotel in Dubai. Keep searching until you find it.

Sometimes you have those moments that turn out better than you could have ever imagined. At my garden party I had a few of those moments. Our autistic son was waiter and it was heart-warming how guests enjoyed his enthusiasm and wished the best for him. The most special moment was to see all nephews and nieces with partners, uncles and aunts together. We hadn't seen most of them for years. Me and my boys had a very special party. Today's special moments are tomorrow's memories.

I am often so busy with my daily activities that I forget to look at the small beauties of life. It's definitely worth it.

This week is all about the preparations for my garden party. I turned 50 in April and next Saturday I'm going to celebrate that with about 60 guests. I realized that this is the first big party that I have been giving since the birth of our autistic son. If you have children you cannot go back to your old life of going out and planning spontaneously. In the beginning that's difficult until you realize that you have been transformed into a more interesting version of yourself. Then you are the rock in the surf for your children, because they cannot live without it. Most parents know what to do intuitively; Be the light that your kids need.

The most important thing I learned about children, I learned from my austistic son; Children are like crystals, reflecting the colors of others. If they have positive people around them, they color positively and develop well. Autistic children are in my eyes very fine tuned crystals that cannot develop with negative people or in a negative environment. I moved with my family to a positive environment. That was the best thing we could do for our children. We let them reflect beautiful colors.💎

In nature, not every flower is in bloom at the same time and not every tree has leaves at the same time. But people always want children to deliver the same performance at the same age. It has been determined when children should be able to crawl, walk, talk, count and so on. How do we come up with that? Let nature take its course. Most schools ensure an unnatural treatment of human nature by giving points to skills that they think a child should master at a certain time. I would say: take your time. Fly only when you are ready.

"What do you want your children to be later?"...."Oh well....as long as they are happy."
That is exactly it. I want to teach my children that they should choose a profession that makes them feel good. And that they should try to get the positive out of every situation. If you feel good about what you do, it takes no effort to invest a lot of time in it and success will come naturally. Be happy, because you are the key to success.

When you ask teenagers what kind of house they want to live or which car they would like to drive or which resort they would choose, most of them think big and beautiful. The great thing about adolescents is that they can think very well in abundance. I try to show my adolescents that there is also a lot of abundance in things that are ordinary in their eyes, such as fruit. Today we are going to pick cherries. I love the richness of nature.

Many parents see the future of their children according to a set pattern. First school, then study, then get a job, then get married, then have children and then the pattern repeats itself. Parents of autistic children cannot follow the set pattern, which is a blessing. They spend a lot of time with their child to find out what is best for him or her from the child's perspective. When we are setting goals with our son, we do it in a quiet environment.

In honor of his 75th Birthday, my father took us a weekend to a recreation park. Here we are with 6 children and 8 adults in a beautiful large house in a park with swimming pools, water slides, trampolines, climbing walls and a beach. We have fun all day playing, eating, drinking and chatting. The time spent with family is worth every second.

School was the biggest problem for our autistic son. Not to learn, but to understand social contacts. How can someone who is not afraid of anything, fear children of his own age? Abseiling, roller coasters, climbing, parasailing and the fastest water slides without problems, but nervous to go to school every day. Fortunately, we have completed that period and he can now continue to build on his future. Climb every mountain, my child.

We must realize that we have a child that thinks very differently than everyone we know. Our autistic son has been interested in an exceptionally beautiful and abundant life from an early age. He always wanted to fly in a private jet. He knows the prices of renting and buying a jet. He believes that as an adult he will only fly with private jets. "But how?......."well, that just will happen."
What can we say? Chase your brilliant thoughts, kid.

Being very positive is much easier on days off. Then I get up a little later, think to myself what a beautiful day it will be and for which I am already grateful. Then I go jogging in nature and feel the freedom of being outside. After that I am very motivated to make it a positive day: our autistic son is going to have a great day.

It is known that autistic people do not like many different types of food, but our son likes strawberries. He currently eats strawberries every day. Even though he makes life too difficult by considering everything, we always find a reason to smile.
