Words escape me in these moments, yet they flood my brain disguised by feelings. Exactly a year ago I was lost on my path. I was so lost, but my trust was tested something serious, in constant reassurance that the lost feeling was nothing but an emotion I had to feel to become “un-lost,” and in that case I couldn’t have been lost at all. I succeeded in my quest to do life all by myself. It was terrifying but deep down I knew only in this isolation would I be able to process all that I had learned from life up until that point. The distractions of the world I had grown to know were too much to keep evolving. At the end of my journey in Europe following mostly instinct and “gut-feelings,” I found my place based on what my own heart had processed. Family. I love those people. As Mother Teresa tells the world, “If you want to change the world, go home and love your family.” My pleas not only rendered me where my heart and soul needed to be in order to properly grow, but also a purpose of sorts. A purpose in life to work with individuals in physical therapy so that they WILL be able to achieve success in accessing their full independence and sense of self post life. Arkansas, the natural state, feels home. My family feels home. Life may proceed now it seems, for I am at peace once again. Inspired. I feel guilty for feeling proud of making these steps. I am now a rehab technician and I did it, and I will achieve the next goal that has been put into perspective, because I kept my promises to myself. I didn’t let me down. It feels off to feel stronger in the way of making myself proud. Could this be the start to an aspect of self love that I’ve lacked for so long? I dunno, but I really like it. #puzzlepieces#autism#wordiness#wordporn#sorrynotsorry#evolve#blackandwhite#selflove#family
April is Autism Awareness Month!
I promised a photo once the painting was completed and can now reveal all 4 puzzle-piece paintings I've secretly been working on! These can be purchased and I will fill custom orders as well. A portion of the proceeds from every puzzle-piece themed artwork from HuxAbstrax will be donated to our friends at @bluemoonfoundationforautism
ALL FOR A GREAT CAUSE!! In many places there remains a serious lack of funding for programs and support services for those families who have been touched by autism. This is why people at The Blue Moon Foundation for Autism (and other similar organisations) are so important!! They are non-profit and work very hard to help as many families as they possibly can by providing information, resources, and support services. ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
The paintings in this photo are on 9"x 12" canvases. If you are interested in purchasing any of these or putting in a custom order, pleas contact us for more information. We would love to hear from you and help provide more assistance to more families!
This does not apply ONLY to the month of April. HuxAbstrax is happy to work with The Blue Moon Foundation YEAR-ROUND. After all, the need for funding doesn't end on April 30th.
I’m still different, and I always will be, but I embrace it. I can no longer aline myself with the word ”disabled” because in retrospect I understand now that the suffering that I have experienced does not stand from my differences itself, but from the impact from ignorance about it.
So if we need a cure for anything, it’s not for neurodiversity, it’s for ignorance and intolerance. #differentnotless
