I am starting the 180 thing today. I feel so much better already.

I advocated for my son to get all the right staff on board for my Autistic son's needs which were not being met. He will now be participating in his "Home school district" activities.

He is getting a tutor and a geometry curriculum.

It took a long time to push for him, and there is a lot of work to be done, but darn that felt great today!

Also, this sounds weird, but it's something I must do: Cleaning the house and getting it in tip top shape/organized/sale ready gives me HUGE self confidence and peace. So I have been working on that for quite some time now. I feel like I am making progress and I am getting the jobs done.

Now to get a bank account and get the paperwork together!

What did you do today?

It's is a great feeling to take control and determine your fate. Keep moving towards a brighter future.

Good for you!!

I read a great quote today, so I'll share it. "You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself 'I have lived through the horror and , I can take the next thing to come along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do."
- Eleanor Roosevelt
