My favorite Autism quote and a song…

I am sorry to all my readers and followers I have been very inactive this past week or so. It is a combination of things some of which include some days have been more busier than normal, I don’t write often when my husband is home as we try to spend time together take care of household or daily things etc and my mind has not been in it’s best place especially when it comes to being able to write much. I think it could be a form of shut down, and my thought processing is really out of wack as is trying to remain motivated, but I am hanging in there I promise. I will be okay and it is not abnormal for me to hit writers block ever so often. I hope to be back to 100% soon and I have many posts planned that I am excited to share when I am feeling better.

In the mean time here is my favorite quote about autism of all time and a song that I absolutely adore and has really helped me as it resonates with my diagnoses.

When it comes to my autism and other diagnoses, this song really means a lot to me and speaks to me. I listen to a lot when I am down on myself or going through shit, it gives me hope. 🙂 ❤

Paint yourself a picture
Of what you wish you looked like
Maybe then they just might
Feel an ounce of your pain
Come into focus
Step out of the shadows
It’s a losing battle
There’s no need to be ashamed
‘Cause they don’t even know you
All they see is scars
They don’t see the angel
Living in your heart
Let them find the real you
Buried deep within
Let them know with all you’ve got
That you are not your skin
Oh oh, oh oh
And when they start to judge you
Show them your true colors
And do on to others
As you’d have done to you
Just rise above this
Kill them with your kindness
Ignorance is blinded
They’re the ones that stand to lose
‘Cause they don’t even know you
All they see is scars
They don’t see the angel
Living in your heart
Let them find the real you
Buried deep within
Let them know with all you’ve got
That you are not your skin
Oh
Well they don’t even know you
All they see is scars
And they don’t see the angels
Living in your heart
So let them find the real you
Buried deep within
Let them know with all you’ve got
That you are not
You are not your skin
Oh oh, oh oh

I am a 30-year-old female living life on the autism spectrum and still trying to find my place in the world. I have other associated disorders or mental illnesses such as OCD, anxiety (generalized and social) and a history of depression to name a few. I love writing and have been writing different styles for as long as I can remember. Like most people who have a strong passion for writing I started writing stories and wrote in a journal in grade school. I remember specifically purchasing my first diary/journal that had a lock with my cousin when I was around 10 year-of-age. I was very excited to start writing in it as it was the first fanciest and most formal writing tool I owned. I think that was when my writing journey really began as I started to write daily. Some of my main goals for this blog is to write about autism, it's associated disorders and my life in hopes to help others. To spread awareness and educate in hopes to end some of the stigmas society has attached to things mental illness and autism. To meet like minded bloggers or be inspired by other writers. Other than that I will post or share anything that is of interest or pops into my head. As I grow older, the more I understand about myself and experience life I find myself wanting to seek a further diagnoses or a reevaluation. That is part of the reason why I am opening a new blog here and the reason for my new found blog name. So I hope you all will join me on my continued journey and new discoveries. My diagnoses are not all who I am so here are some random facts about myself. Some of my hobbies besides writing include music, The Sims 3, Xbox, Netflix, scrapbooking and the outdoors. I have a very strong passion for music. It is like my drug/medicine/obsession and you may catch me from time to time preaching it like a religion. Apologies in advance I am married to a man who is not on the spectrum, but he is as equally as amazing and I am insanely in love with him. Like my rants about my life and music you will also hear a lot about him. I was born and raised in Canada who recently seeked Permanent Residence in the USA, so I am no longer an illegal alien. Although I am still an 'alien' tbh. I say imo and tbh too much. (imo = in my opinion/tbh = to be honest) They are also probably the only two abbreviations you will catch me using as one of my many pet peeves are people who 'typ like dis' The only thing that probably makes me a stereotypical Canadian is my obsession with hockey. I am a very organized person. However, it is normally with things that don't really matter in life such as my files on my computer that are organized in folders, within folders... I often can be perceived as rude at first until you get to know me. I have a huge imagination. Some of my favorite animals are dogs, cats, monkeys, penguins and elephants. I prefer animals to humans tbh. Basically I am another complexed human being like everyone else trying to find her way through life and I welcome you all to my newly found blog. This description is subject to change at anytime as my blog grows, I add more facts about myself or for whatever reason I feel fit. ~ My Authentic Mind
