Last night my sweet, sweet daughter attended her first school event that wasn’t at school; her junior prom.
My daughter was diagnosed on the autism spectrum when she was 4 years old. What started out as a barely noticeable issue became more & more noticeable as she got older and social interaction and language comprehension became more of a challenge. ☝🏾
Being self employed gave me the flexibility to be more present in her upbringing. And even still, I judged myself. Am I working with her enough? Will she be ready for this cruel, cruel word if something should ever happen to me? I still ask myself those questions. But last night something happened. 👤
My baby girl, went to that prom all by herself loaded with the confidence I don’t have as an ADULT, danced liked no one was watching and had a GREAT time. 💋
We could all learn a lesson from her. She isn’t afraid of looking silly or going against the crowd (she was determined to dress like Belle for prom) to secure her own happiness. ❓❓
What have you not done because you’re afraid of looking stupid, think folks won’t show up for you or because no one else does it even though you want to? Comment below
