We are Stewards of the World

I am a Citizen of the World

I have long considered myself out of place and out of time. Just because I am Autistic I have decided that the reason I feel out of place is because I am a citizen not just of my country of birth, but of the world

I feel deeply for those who struggle not just here but across the globe. I hurt when I see the pain that other people are going through whether it is from natural disaster or through circumstance. I cant make the hurt stop however, what I can do is call for help

So because of this I want to call out to everyone. No matter what Religion you are be it Christian, Buddist, Muslim, Jewish or something else, we are stewards of the world. This even applies to those who are people of no faith. We are supposed to look after and protect the world and we have failed to do so.

So my call out is to everyone. What we are seeing in Australia at the moment is total devastation. Homes and lives are being lost and our first responders are doing the best they can. The Military is doing the best they can but they need our help. What ever you can do to help those affected by the Bushfires please do so.

Look at the red cross, look for things that can help these people who have lost everything, The trees and the environment that has been destroyed, the wildlife that could be extinct because of these fires. We need to do something to help everyone. We are stewards of this world and we are all human. I dont care about political views but we need to help these people.

Disabled Avice

What you should do when you are struggling?

I have had to learn something the hard way. On the 27th December I had a fall and wrenched both my shoulders. I tried to stop myself from falling and it didnt work at all.

I looked after them for a week and thought that things were ok. I tried to do some fitness yesterday to get some exercise and did too much. Now both my shoulders are back to being in agony.

So, advice to people who are disabled and dealing with an injury. Don’t over do the exercise. You will find that you are suffering more in the long run.

I know this sounds like I am telling you to suck eggs, but I made the mistake and I know my limitations, so it can happen to anyone at any time. Just make sure you look after yourself.

Coding & Me

What makes coding special to me?

Coding is something that I am finding very relaxing.

When your brain is so chaotic as mine, coding gives me a sense of something that makes me feel safe. When you have two neurodiverse conditions which are by their nature polar opposites of each other, you mind can be a crowded and messy place. This is what I live with on the day to day

Coding brings me a certain amount of relaxation when my world is going crazy and there is nothing I can do to stop it

It also gives me something to focus on. When I am unable to sleep, or having stress, coding gives me that focus I need to get through.

There is something so elegant about coding. It never lies. It works or it doesn’t. If it doesn’t it gives you a mission for find out why it is not working. This is a challenge.

I would recommend finding a project that you can work on if you are Autistic. It can give you a sense of purpose in a crazy world that we find ourselves in.

Anyway I will leave it ther for now.

Call Out to the World – Urgent

Dear World,

I am asking for an urgent call out to the world both citizens, politicians and businesses. Australia has been hit with the worst bush fire which is showing no signs of slowing down. This overshadows the horrific fire that happened at Grenfell Tower and we need to help.

We have a country who have been devastated and we need to do something to help. We can not in good consciousness ignore the situation. We are in this situation because we were supposed to look after the planet and we are destroying it. This is something we cant take back, but, what we can do is rally together to help those in need now.

There has already been death due to this fire and it does not seem to be letting up.

To everyone in the world I am asking that you find a way to support our brothers and sisters down under.

I have already started looking into a way that we can support the fire fighters and have contacted the Rural Fire Service for guidance. Fundraising site to come. I have emailed the Australian Government to see what we can do in terms of people wanting to go over to help. I am one person but together we are a world community.

We need to help these people so what you need to start looking at;

1) Can you post anything to Australia to help support the first responders and survivors? Clothes, Food, Cash etc.

2) Lobby your politicans to look at sending military support;

3) Lobby organisation in the private sector for support; sending items of need out there; free flights for those going out to help;  etc;

Lets do what we can, because what would happen if this was our country that was going up in flames would we not want people to help and support? Many people have died and others have lost everything they owned. Nothing can bring those things back but lets look at ways that we can help these people.

I will update you with my progress on getting support sent out there;

Thanks

 

My Peace

My peace of mind

How do I draw Peace in a Chaotic mind?

I often get asked how I draw peace in the chaos of my mind? How do I calm myself both as an autistic person as well as a Christian woman as well. The truth is is that I often find peace in a certain Psalm. The Psalm I refer to is Psalm 23 and I will share it with you now

The Lord is my Shepherd, I lack nothing;

He makes me lie down in green pastures;

he leads me beside quiet waters;

He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake;

Even though I walk through the darkest valley;

I will fear no evil;

For you are with me;

Your rod and your staff they comfort me;

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;

You anoint my head with oil;

My cup overflows

Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life;

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord, forever;

This Psalm is something that always has stayed with me and been a calming influence on me when growing up. It shows that no matter what happens God will take care of me. Even, if it does not seem like it now I will be rewarded when I see him at the end of my road where ever that may be. When you grow up with a mind a chaotic as mine, with un-diagnosed autism it is really easy to wonder why everything happens to you but this Psalm no matter how chaotic my life is it brings me back

Christmas Break

Holidays, a time for reflection

As I am seriously bad at taking holidays, I tend to take the bulk of it at Christmas. It gives you a proper chance to reflect of the year just gone and the new one that is due to start

This year that has just gone has been a year of ups and downs. I moved into my own place for the first time and so far I have far exceeded my streak of living alone. I have been single for a whole year and enjoyed the time by myself.

So what did I need to reflect on you may ask? Well the answer to that is honestly how I see myself and how I am going to go about getting to the places I want to get to. I have just been coasting this last year and I think it is time that I really look at what I want. I need to look at what I want on both a personal and professional level and figure out how I am going to achieve this.

One of the things I have learned over this Christmas period is what really keeps me calm when it comes to my autism. PROJECTS!!!With this in mind I have decided that I would like to learn to code. Even though you will not be able to see it I am using HTML code for this post. I am very proud of what I have already achieved and look forward to learning more.

I have learned that it is about knowing who you are as a person and being strong enough to say “I don’t care what you think of me, I know who I am and I am happy with that.” So from today I will no longer allow other people to define me and I will make sure that what I do is because it is what is best for me.

Reflection is good for you no matter what religion you are or what culture you are from. I urge everyone to take the time to reflect who who they are and what you want for yourself.

Finally, I would like to wish everyone in the world a Happy New Year, and lets hope that we can make 2020 the best it can be.
