After 6 months of blogging about whatever comes to my mind, I think I have come across a blogging niche that not only suits me, but is easy to share with the rest of the world. I also hope that my niche can inspire other autistic children, autistic adults, and their families. My niche comes in 5, 4, 3, 2 🙂🙃
MY NICHE: Life of independence…
My independence is something I have been fighting for ever since I graduated high school in 2007. However, with some difficulties understanding social cues and getting things done, gaining independence was unsuccessful. At the same time, I refused to believe that I had to depend on my family in order to get by and have a roof over my head. For over 2 years, God has been telling me, “It’s time to get out there Veronica. If you are capable of finding a job, you are capable of anything.” I know that there’s an enormous part of me that cannot grow under my family’s roof. So, I did something that seemed impossible a decade ago.
Today, I signed a lease to my very own apartment. That’s right. I now have my own place! I’m will begin moving there this Friday. Am I nervous? You bet! Do I fear failure? Absolutely! However, I know that God will be with me every step of the way on this journey of independence. From now on, I will be blogging about my experiences with independency, along with the ups and downs that come with it.
Yes, I’m nervous, but I’m excited too. I have to take a chance. That part of me (that I talked about earlier) needs a chance to grow. If not, I’ll be sitting back wondering what if. That’s something I cannot do. Life is too precious to be wondering what if. 😉🙂
There’s so much more to come! Stay tuned!!!
