April Autism Awareness Blog Hop – Being Human

Autism Awareness Graphic

I’m participating in April Autism Blog Hop run by RJ Scott for the second time in a row and I still think it’s something special. Thanks, RJ, once again, for organizing it.
For those of you who are so inclined, please visit THE MASTERPOST of this blog hop to read what others are saying.


Did You Know?
There is no medical detection or cure for autism
BUT autism prevalence figures are growing.

People are different. People are amazing, and strange, and sometimes they hurt us, sometimes they inspire us. There’s no one way to be human and maybe that’s the beauty of it. We discover ourselves constantly, we discover other people over and over again. There’s no end, no finish line.

I hope you’re curious about yourself and about others. I wish you all to keep discovering things in people you haven’t thought possible. I wish you all to let yourself be discovered by others, too. To open yourself and show somebody what ‘human’ means to you. To see what it means to them.

I didn’t know what I was going to write about when I started this post and this is what came out. This is my ‘human’ tonight.

GIVEAWAY

Comment and tell me what you discovered about yourself lately. It can be the simplest thing or the biggest one, you chose.
You can win a copy of “Running Off the Edge” e-book.
The giveaway ends April 19th.
Edit: the winner is Shirley Ann!

After the knee injury, Liam O’Connor, the former gold medalist, is no longer able to compete at the Olympics. He’s in Sochi as an assistant coach for another male figure skater and hopes to avoid Eric Lanney as much as possible.
Meanwhile Eric is back to compete for gold in pair skating, but is that the only thing that will be important to him? Maybe when the former lovers meet again in Russia, they will both learn that a gold medal isn’t the greatest prize you can win at the Winter Olympics.

    I’ve learned that I can deal with confrontation better than i can encouragement and praise and that i need to learn how to shift that (I’m not sure if this is what you wanted, but I’m very good at allowing myself to see who I really am, when i want to see it, that is)

      I think that allowing yourself to see who you really are is really important! It sometimes leads to unexpected discoveries, too. 🙂

    Thanks for the great post and for being part of the hop. I have learned that I need to take better care of myself. I tend to take care of everyone else first and then I have little time to do self-care. I am learning to take the time I need to be more centered, and it’s working really well.

      Oh, good luck with learning that! I know it’s hard to do, but caring about ourselves is crucial.

    Thank you for helping to spread awareness!

    In the past year I’ve learned that even though I’m extremely introvert I’m not totally horrible at conversing with people or so I’ve been told.

      Good luck! Changes are difficult, but what’s after the change is sometimes extraordinary to our previous selves.

      Thanks for sharing!

    That I am not as stupid or unworthy as I think I am, there I have written it down at long last, if only the message would get through, maybe in the next sixty years or so, sigh! 🙂
