I’m happy to report I’m feeling better today. I haven’t completely shaken off the cold yet, but I’m getting there. I’m also feeling a bit more positive in general. In fact I’d say I’m feeling humbled.
Like I’ve said before. This blog was a long time in the making. I’ve wanted to do it for years. A decade ago I used to write a lot, including a lot of fiction, and I was happy putting it out there into the public domain. Somewhere along the way I lost my confidence, and my motivation.
Without trying to make a big deal of it, it was a big effort to get things thing started. To get myself in the frame of mind to do it, took a long time. But now I’ve started, the confidence and the motivation are back.
One thing I wasn’t thinking of when I started this, was the people I’d meet along the way. It’s only been a short time, but already I’ve come across some great people. Especially on twitter, where the “autism community” and the “writing community” are absolutely fantastic. If I hadn’t decided to do this, I probably wouldn’t have come across these great people.
The past 4 or 5 days have been pretty tough. Mentally & physically I had been worn down, then out came the cold, which was probably a factor in it all. But I have received some lovely comments and messages of support, both on here and on twitter. They really did have me feeling humbled.
Finding people you can relate too, isn’t always easy, but I’ve found a few in the past month or so. So to all those who had kind words to say, thank you. I am truly feeling humbled. I am really enjoying doing this, especially with Jack and Lily wanting to get involved themselves. That’s really helped with the creative side. I want this to be more than just day to day life and autism. This can be my creative outlet and encourage Jack and Lily to be creative also. I hope you continue to enjoy this as much as I do.
