Today I was told that I come across as “a bit entitled”.
I feel like that’s the farthest from the truth. I am an incredibly direct person who tends to include factual information and I ask a lot of questions. If a certain channel doesn’t yield any answers, I try another channel. Yes, I am an incredibly persistent person but that should not be confused with entitled.
I seek informative answers, I seek consistency. I seek an answer, whether that’s acceptance or rejection, I feel as though I’m worthy of either versus just being ‘ghosted’. Being completely ignored.
My story and my passion is one that is mixed with drive, acceptance, awareness and equal opportunities. I have a mission to showcase products, attractions, experiences and opinions with my wide array of different visitors–both Neurodiverse and NT.
I wish there was a general understanding that I am not doing this blog to get free stuff. I am creating content because I want to show the world a very unique point of view. This is a niche. This is my passion and I love to create media rich content—it allows me to be creative which is a huge part of my identity. I have been told by a very prominent local blogger that I should be charging for all the work I do. I have not made a cent.
Please don’t pass judgement. Education is key and incorrect labels do not help anyone.
I want to introduce you guys to my Nephew and Niece, Ben and Stella. They are charming kids and have a lot of honest opinions! We would like to extend a gracious THANK YOU to Alex Brands for sending us some Toys in exchange for our review.
There are plenty of us who are able to express ourselves and plenty who can not. I always hope when I share my stories that I am able to speak from deep within. It’s incredibly humbling when I receive messages of support.
To know that there are people out there who find what I say relatable and comforting is wonderful.
With everything that has been going on in the Autistic community, primarily those who have chosen to speak for us/at us without being Autistic, I feel that much more compelled to share the experiences that have shaped me.
I feel fragile and lonely at times. I wear my heart on my sleeve and I am still growing, changing and evolving. I realize that the sentiment “be kind” can be so much more. Hold the door open, say hi to someone! Maybe even practice random acts of kindness? The simplest acknowledgement can really brighten a human’s day.
I’m so excited to announce that there’s a few brands I will be working with.
I am an ambassador for a really stimulatingproduct that helps people who may be on the ASD spectrum. I am so happy that i get to review this product and share my experiences with all of you.
I’ll also be working with Eve of American Badass Activists on Neurodiverse Beauty, Glamour and Fashion articles. We want to show that yes, there are brands who are totally tone deaf when it comes to marketing to people of different abilities, but there are also those of us who love to express ourselves in colour. I’ve created my first makeup video:
I hope, with the products I will be able to test out, that i’ll bring more content just like this featuring items that really help me live my life in a bold way.
