Maybe it's because I'm in need of some advice and inspiration, like those days when I'm all "meh", and can't find something worth writing about. Or I need to hear some words of encouragement and advice to be my best, in all areas of my life.
Specifically, I think I need inspiration in my writing, and in my dealings with The Boy.
I think we all could use some inspiration from time to time. It's often helpful to get advice from someone who's been there.
“To know the road ahead, ask those coming back."
Twitter can be a great place for inspiration. Short, concise, witty tweets on any manner of subjects. @TheCoffeeKlatch, which includes a site about topics for parents of children with special needs, had a TweetChat the other night asking what advice and tips for parents whose child had just received an Autism diagnosis.
I participated along with many others. Some of my tweets were heartfelt and hopeful; a few were humorous and/or snarky, because sometimes, using humor/snark is the only way to keep from having my own meltdown.
Here's a tweet I got from @CoffeeKlatch yesterday:
email me to be on my new show - Inspiring Special Needs Parents
When I read the tweet, I called The Mister to the computer. He needed to see this.
Most days, I feel like I just muddle through with The Boy. Once in a while, I feel like I have handled a situation pretty well. There's no instruction manual here, I just do what I can, in each situation. Sometimes it works - other times, not so much.
Per the request from Marianne@The Coffee Klatch, I sent an email, and am waiting to hear what's next.
Here's a link to Inspiring Special Needs Parents post on The Coffee Klatch.
