Break it Down

Procrastination will rob you of your sense of purpose and of fulfillment. It is a tiny virus that slowly gets into your whole being and selfishly eats away at your creative energy that otherwise had you not been attacked by the bug of putting off what you could do today, you would have accomplished what you intended of doing.

Stick to a plan. Make a list. Break down everything into tiny parts. Once you do what needs to be done, you won’t be overwhelmed but actually have a sense of pride of all that you’ve accomplished.

Perhaps waking up a little earlier when everyone is still fast asleep or waiting after everyone has gone to bed and the chores are all done… We only have 24 hours in the day but we all deserve to do things for ourselves. Things that bring us joy and happiness. 

Sometimes we have all the time for others and to do things for others that we forget about ourselves…  Breaking our tasks down will allow us a bigger time frame to get things done and before you know it, you just might have more time to do more of the things you love! ❤️

The Holidays are upon us

You know Christmas 🎄 is not far away after you see the Santa 🎅 Claus 🤶 Parade!

The Santa Claus 🎅 Parade has been a family tradition for many families and ours as well! There’s something about standing outside in the fresh air, although sometimes it’s more like the frozen air, that gets you into the spirit of things… Watching your kids expressions and happiness, actually warms your heart that you even forget any chill you may experience while waiting! 

Also, watching all the creative floats and jolly dancers and prancers, the marching bands that gets your adrenaline in the rise that your feet can’t help but March to the beat! 

Since 1913, the Santa Claus Parade in Toronto has been an interest to people of all ages. Many generations line up with their folding chairs and warm blankets to kick off the

season of giving! As you can see, the moments of joy will surely last a lifetime as you keep the memories alive in your hearts ♥️ 

🌺 Good Morning Beautiful Friends

Enjoy the morning breeze and live in the experience!

Worry about yourself

 

In times of doubt, remember to just let go of all the idle talk that is slowly robbing you of your true potential! 

Clear away those voices that day in and day out tell you that your not worthy… YOU ARE! You are worthy because inside of you is a star ⭐️ waiting to shine! Too many times we stay stuck because we are too busy on the wrong frequency of our lives to actually pull through into the direction we are meant to travel! We tend to be more concerned of what others might think 🤔 if we do this or that, or on what others are doing and we forget what’s in our hearts ♥️!  Your heart speaks wonders.. you just have to listen! 

Worry about yourself and everything else will follow! 

Love One Another Firsthand

We have to teach our children to be loving and caring of one another. To accept everyone regardless of the colour of their skin or ethnic backgrounds.

To look beyond any imperfections, and we all know that we are not perfect. We all make mistakes and make wrong choices. It’s not teaching your kids to defend themselves in an argument that counts. It’s teaching them not to judge one another and be more compassionate! 

It’s teaching our kids that not everyone will like us but that’s ok because just as long as we like ourselves that’s what matters. It’s picking up on the clues that something might be wrong with our child when they appear angry out of nowhere. It’s really our responsibility as parents to make sure that the tree that we created in a way of speaking, grows up tall and strong and knows how to be more accepting of everyone regardless of their issues and disabilities.

It doesn’t matter what type of family you come from, if it’s with a traditional mother or father, or two fathers or two mothers or just one playing the part of both or even a grandparent acting out as both, families still need to show love to their kids and teach them empathy.

What I see mainly, is a lot of judgmental children that are so quick to judge without knowing the whole story or trying to understand when all we need is more love..  more openness… more acceptance…. We teach our kids to look beyond the colour of the skin or disabilities…. that a child is a child no matter what they look like and deserves friends and someone to play with! We show our kids to love one another firsthand! ❤️

Always Shine Bright

Don’t be the reason you don’t succeed… Don’t listen to the voices inside of you or the others telling you that your not capable! 

We are all capable of great things. We are all worthy of success and happiness. There’s no need to prove anything to no one. Only to do it all for ourselves without anyone’s approval or consent.

We live in a shallow world filled with people waiting to dismiss or criticize anybody’s attempt for happiness or success. When in reality everyone’s entitled to their day in the sun!

It’s time to stop looking elsewhere for approval and look inside ourselves for the answers…  Always shine bright! ❤️

Be Extra Vigilant

 

This is the letter I wrote to the Principal of my autistic child’s school… please be extra vigilant to what your children are watching on television and the internet… 

 

I’m trying to comprehend what would make a six year old child, perhaps almost seven… nonetheless in Grade 1, place a substance in another child’s water bottle… with the intention of harming them!

I cannot fathom what would make a child who is merely innocent supposedly, using the words “making a potion to kill Sergio” at such a young age… As any parent, if it were their child, they would be livid! After speaking to Esko and Ameya ( I apologize if I wrote down her name wrong), they were kind enough to let me know what Maya S said… All the planning that was taken place… that is not appropriate for a six year old to do! 

Do you want to know what the strangest part of this is…. that yesterday my son did not have his dinner because he said his tummy was hurting and sadly I brushed it off, thinking that he was just making it up because soon bedtime would be approaching or he would be missing his favourite cartoon show! How do we know this hasn’t happened yet? Truly no one knows but the perpetrators really…

As if that isn’t heartbreaking enough, being autistic and this happening to you, but having it done by your best friend as well! So I guess that old adage is right, “with friends like these who needs enemies!’. Andreus and Sergio were like two peas in a pod, but I did correct myself when I said were! 

Something has to be done… and talking will not be enough… This isn’t like kids will be kids… one pushed one and the other pushed back… this is a serious issue and has to be dealt in that matter! They have to be suspended a day or two so they see how serious it is to place substances on other people’s water! Talking is not enough… talking about killing shouldn’t be in a child’s vocabulary! One thing that I regret was tearing up a paper that I received from Maya S before the Christmas Break which she wrote down things that weren’t so nice about Sergio… again I brushed it off! 

It’s really not fair that I have to keep Sergio in tomorrow and probably even Friday to give him time to digest everything and hopefully forget about while they go to school and get a slap on the wrist…

We would like a copy of everything documented and if nothing is done then I have no other choice but to go to the police because really that is what I should of done today! I’m not doing it only because I have faith in your team and that at least their poor choices will give them a consequence so that in the future they’re won’t be anymore copycats… This is very serious… it could have harmed my son and for that I am taking him to the doctor to get checked out tomorrow! 

Just last month there was a woman that was being poisoned by her co-worker at the Bay with Lysol… and she got fired and charged and young kids do this which is equally serious and alarming… talking is not enough in this situation! They have to feel the impact they’ve caused whether they realized it fully or not! 

This is a safety issue… How are we supposed to feel safe at work knowing that our child could be poisoned or seriously hurt! 

Thank-you for your time and understanding with us… we appreciate it… just like we know it may be very difficult for you too and we understand your tough position! We just want this to be dealt as a serious issue that it is! 

Lara and Sergio Maria 

May 2019 bring you and your families a year filled with happiness, Love, health and many more without forgetting the Happy moments spent with those you love… If you know someone that needs your company because they are alone be there for them! Be that hand when needed! Be that voice to talk to them! We have so much to be grateful for! There is a lot of people that wish they had half of what we have. Be there for who needs it! Happy New Year once again! 😃

Good Morning my Friends 

May today be your day to Shine bright… Don’t get discouraged, just keep shining bright and keep your eyes on the Prize! Before you know it, your time has come! ❤️
