You Live what you THINK!
You Live What You Think
Somewhere along the way, I either heard this saying, dreamed the saying, or read it someplace. In any event, it seems to be a fitting saying as it relates to PSN Magazine and this issue. Even though I believe those of us caring for special needs children are very adept at learning to ride the waves, sometimes we still can get stuck by our own thoughts. Speaking of waves, check out Surfers for Autism and learn about catching some waves and the healing powers of the ocean.
Living what you think…I was, for example, very reluctant to go to an Autism support group because my child does not have “definitive” Autism. Yet, once I went to this group, I realized that there were things that they did with their children that could and have benefited my daughter. So, I had to “rethink” my thinking. In doing so, I have been able to help my daughter and her life is better for it. Back to the saying: You Live What You Think. I changed my way of thinking and changed how I live. Everything is, after all, interconnected.
I guess what I am trying to impart to each of you is that we have to constantly change our thinking. The “tried and true” ways of thinking in the past certainly do not apply to today. If that were true, we would still be hiding our children from society…. how inconceivable is that? It wasn’t so long ago that this was how society thought.
Thank goodness that is not how the MHMRA of Harris County, in Houston,TX thinks. They are ahead of the game helping children with their innovative ABA-SkiP program.
And who would think a tattoo could change your life? Be sure to read and learn about the Hopkins Family and the tattoo that changed their lives and their thinking. Their story is a wonderful testimony to the power of great thinking.
