As Autism Acceptance Month comes to a close today, we need to end with a bang with this Flash Blog of Autism Positivity while getting ready for Positivity Day sometime in May for everyone! And, Don’t forget about the Autistic Artistic Carnival on Drive Mom Crazy Blog coming this June 18, Autistic Pride Day!!! Read the Featured post on the front of my blog
For me, Autism is a positive experience, but this Flash blog alert is for everyone who needs to feel that too.
Remember this from all those Autistic people as a whole feeling unwanted, insecure, or unaccepted:
Des’ree “You Gotta Be” song,
You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold
You gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard
You gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm
You gotta stay together
All I know, all I know, love will save the day
Being Positive about being on the Autistic Spectrum is important, it’s essential for self-esteem, and not allowing anyone to bully us to think we are nothing.
