Laughing at Myself…

I’m Autistic too. I’ve dug in my heels and I’m saying “no” to everything. No to straightening the house. No to organizing stuff. No to managing or taking care of anything. Big fat no’s everywhere. It’s a long list. I like it. Thanks, Jakob for showing me how to say no to things I just don’t feel like doing right now.

Even when what he wants is totally different than what I want, and he’s willing to fight for it, I love his commitment. The clarity. Way to go kid. Knowing what you really want and going for it. I wanna do that and I mean really do that. No more half-assing it.

The kid is also so honest. He doesn’t know how to lie. There’s no need for it in his world. I just spent a week at the Option Institute in a program called Radical Authenticity. I never really realized how much I lie every day. What a load I spew. And I don’t wanna do it anymore…so that’s my next lesson to learn from Jakob. Authenticity. Fun! Stay tuned…
