Even on the truly awful days, it’s important to find the positive

There were a few things today that I think warrant mention because they were overtly positive and while they may seem kinda random, positive is positive.

For starters, despite where I am both emotionally and physically, I made myself go walking. I was able to squeeze 3.1 miles out of myself today and I’m actually proud of that.

Next on our list is family movie night. Everyone sat together and watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 1. For the first time in a long time, all of the kids sat on the couch and watched the same thing at the same time. It was super nice and I think that was the highlight of my day. ☺

Finally, as cliché as it sounds, I survived. I will live to fight another day. When all else fails, and you can’t find something positive, you can always celebrate the fact you survived the day. It may seem like a ridiculous thing to celebrate but if you’re an Autism or Special Needs parent, you know just how bad things can get and surviving can sometimes feel like a miracle.



Tomorrow is a new day and hopefully, it will be a better one.. Regardless, I will do my best to find the positive.
