Since my Autism Diagnosis, I have been doing as much research as I can possibly do and honestly, one of my superpowers is my hearing.
It is something I am proud of. Even though I can’t handle really loud sounds for example if someone has the television up too loud, I can hear things like both sides of a telephone conversation from another room. I am proud of this fact. It is something that is special to me and I take great pride in it.
This autistic person has a superpower! Like with my Dyslexia I choose to consider my differences as superpowers. It means that I feel less like an oddball and more like someone who has special talents.
Thank You is only two words that dont take much effort to say and yet, those who wear a uniform rarely hear it from people. Why is that?
These are people who put their lives on the line for us on a regular basis and yet we can not say thank you to them for doing so. This to me is something that is unacceptable.
So to all those in uniform I say #ThankYou as well as #ThankYouForYourService
So I have started on two of my new year’s resolutions.
- I quit smoking at 9 am on Tuesday 15th January 2019 – So far this has gone well and I have not had a cigarette. Thank you to boots for making patches that survive showers
- Weight – in the last 3 weeks I have lost 3-4 KG of weight and intend to keep up the good work. I am looking forward to providing a new update this time next month.
I just want to put this out there. Respect is earnt not given. If you show respect to others they will show it to you back in spades. If you enter into a campaign of disrespect then no respect will come your way. This is how the world works. If you can’t handle that then you should look at how you are treating people.
I will be going back to work tomorrow after two weeks off. I am looking forward to it 🙂 I am looking forward to getting work done and seeing how things were when I wasnt around.
Fun times ahead.
There are some people out there who believe this, I am not one of them. They believe that just because a man or woman signs up to serve their country, city or community in uniform that they should be accepting the fact that they may get abused or attacked in the course of their duties. This is something that is not the case. This is something that I firmly disagree with strongly. The only exception I find to this is when a military person who goes into war. Death and danger is something that is part of what you see.
If you see a paramedic and get punched in the face when you are trying to help someone that you have not signed up for. The same goes for every other member of the uniformed services. Show some respect the next time you see someone in uniform and say #Thankyouforyourservice.
