Weekend snacking, anyone? 😋

Já são 7 anos de vc em nossas vidas meu amor! E 5 anos de nossa busca diária em te entender, te traduzir e ajudar a tornar seus dias leves e felizes. Cada avanço seu é uma festa em nossos corações. Cada palavra pronunciada um bálsamo pra aliviar um pouco da angústia chata que insiste em habitar meu coração de mãe. Sempre vai haver a sensação de que podia fazer mais, de que se o tempo passar nossa luta será mais difícil. Mas em nenhum momento falta esperança. A cada beijo seu, a cada abraço apertado recarrego minhas baterias e continuo a tentar sorrir. Tudo vale a pena por vc! 👼💙❤️ #anjoazulerosa #anjoazul #autismo #autista #autism #tea #lis #transtornodoespectroautista #autismspectrumdisorder #autismobrasil #autismspeaks #autistic @anjoazulerosa

So I guess it's time to come out of the closet:
I'm autistic!🙂
...
I found out within the past couple weeks and was considering whether or not I should post this, since there’s certainly a stigma associated with Autism and because strangers can be so judgmental sometimes. In the end, though, I decided that this is a new important aspect of my identity, and I should be open about it.
...
At first I had difficulty accepting myself, and I deactivated my social media to reflect. One of the main questions in my mind was: “how have other people viewed me for my whole life?” But I realized that other people’s opinions must not have been too big of an issue if I was able to live almost normally without finding out until college.

I’m also certainly not ashamed to be autistic. It may have made it more difficult to socialize, upkeep conversations, maintain friendships, and make social decisions throughout my life.. However, I’m glad that I’ve been able to see that these issues have been occurring and to understand how they’ve contributed to much of my regular self-frustration. This will help me overcome various obstacles in the future.

Having this much self-realization in such a short amount of time also made me think about some tough decisions. I began to wonder if I was truly enjoying college. If not, I wondered if I should just live with my parents and teach myself about my favorite subjects at home rather than continuing at Northwestern. I also wondered whether I should give up my love for social media based upon what others think of me. In the end, I came to the conclusion that both of these decisions would have been too drastic; Northwestern is a great college, and I’ll never let opinions bring me down that low.

It’s been a strange couple of weeks, but I believe that knowing this about myself will help me work through challenges in my life and help me become a better person. I don’t see Autism as anything "wrong" with me, and I’m happy to live in a society where autistic people can achieve greatness. Thank you so much for your support!

PS: The symbol on my shirt in these photos is an autistic pride symbol. ∞

It's time for me say goodbye. A massive thank you to everyone for your support this week and the #spectrum_inspired ladies for giving me the opportunity to share a bit of our journey so far. I wanted to leave you all with one of my most precious moments to date....
"Please Mummy, I want kiss to you". For the first few years of Emmi-Belle's life we could not touch her. She did not like affection and never wanted physical comfort when upset. No words can describe the feeling I got when on Christmas Day 2017 she said these exact words. Chris and I waited nearly 5 years for Emmi-Belle to initiate a kiss to either of us... this is a phrase we will remember forever 💕 ...
Thank you again for having me this week. Much love Nikki xx @nikki_laceylane

I could have posted: "Well ... this wasn't my day 😕 Let's just keep it at that!" and left all the data out of the post beside the distance, but I also tell about my bad days!
.
So ... long story told short: left too late for my run and it was too hot to keep it going!
But I always look on the bright side of life ... I made my way home 😊
.
Ok, now what happened today ...
I started my long run at 1pm and everything went well untill I ran 8-9km. My water bottle was almost empty and my foot started to hurt again! So I decided to walk home instead of keep on pushing to get my 21km done, and those were 6 loooooong kilometers!
When I got home, I was so angry at myself for gettin out the door too late!! But maybe it was just a sign to keep it easy and I needed more rest. I took a nap, watched tv and said to myself: "Look on the bright side Mitch! You had to do 2h zone 2 + CD and so you did! Ok it wasn't all in zone 2 (the 6km walk was zone 0 😁), but you were out for 2h! You will learn from this! There is always another day tomorrow!!"
.
I am grateful that I can do what I love to do, RUNNING, and there will always be good days and bad days!
Now it's time to go to bed and leave it all behind!
