Happy New Year-What Returns You to Yourself? Recently I asked people what made them feel connected to themselves when life threw them for a loop? I thought many people would be able to quickly tell me some strategy they had to connect to their deepest selves. They didn’t. Most people didn’t have an answer. So Happy New Year. Let’s make a list of what makes us happy and connected! [...]

When You Live With Mars... Okay so there was more to the USPS story. After receiving the second USPS slip with the same wrong information, on Friday I find the USPS person on my block. She’s not the regular. I called again to the 800#. I talked with two guys for one hour and I get assigned to someone to track down the package. The man says, “Well I don’t understand why this has been so [...]

A Mothers’s Hell with USPS -- Right before Thanksgiving, we received a notice from USPS that a signature confirmation would be needed to receive our order of medication for our son. Strangely, instead of listing our local post office as a place for pick-up, it had a pre-printed address of a post office 8 miles away. Tuesday, I went to that post office and was informed by the woman that I [...]

Why do I continue to have a problem with food? It’s amazing to me. I simply eat too much. And I eat really healthy. Just too much. I’ve been tracking diligently for the last couple of weeks. I see my patterns now (again!), and I’m eating too much at the later part of the day (again!) and even though I pre-track most of my food (again!), I somehow get too hungry and eat too much [...]

When We Slip Up... I know many people who cannot forgive themselves over the human errors they make. After much therapy, meditation and practice, I can move on from certain kinds of slips much more readily than others. Some mistakes are so painful, the pain can seem overwhelming. My insides feel almost raw with vulnerability and shame. I’m interested in understanding how a mistake can [...]

To Actually Feel Your Feelings? I know you won’t believe this. But it turns out I don’t feel my feelings. I know. You’re shocked? Me too. Well I feel some feelings. I feel the “safe” ones. But usually only for a limited time. I’ve realized that I’ve “survived” my feelings but saying out loud I feel “frustrated” but then putting that frustration away, not truly [...]

“Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. Truth and courage aren’t always comfortable, but they’re never weakness.” Brene Brown Vulnerable. What do you think when you read that word? Take a moment and see what comes to you, how it feels in your body, how you perceive that word. Vulnerable stimulates a world of thoughts and ideas. Most of us don’t give ourselves [...]

Self Loathing Rears it’s Ugly Head -- If you would have asked me before last Friday if I would “punish” myself for my being overweight, I would have responded mightily, “NO!” If you had interviewed me further about my own issues of self-loathing, I would have responded that I really have less incidents of self-loathing and try very hard to not spend one minute hating myself. I would [...]

In my family, we all struggle to be motivated to accomplish things that we don’t find “interesting.” This is a common struggle with people on the spectrum, including ADHD. We are able to sustain motivation for a small amount of time, and then we lose it. We are however, very motivated by anything that interests us. We can sustain motivation and become highly competent. My son struggles [...]

Living in Exponential Times -- We live in a time where information is being garnered and put out at supersonic speed. We literally cannot keep up with the outflow of information now available. We must slow down and deliberately pay attention to how this information stream is affecting our lives and our children’s lives. How can we navigate without being sucked under? How can we manage [...]
