You may have noticed a new page on the blog. You can learn more by visiting the Puzzle Pride Campaign page at the top of the blog, but I’ll explain it briefly here. We are all pieces of the same puzzle. When we come together as one, we reveal the whole picture as we strive to understand what the puzzle is.
Since this is Autism Awareness Month (April), I feel it is appropriate to announce that I may not be “normal,” but I am me. And that is all that matters in this life. I am proud of all that I have accomplished in the face of ASD.
I could never have made it this far without those who went to bat for me in my lifetime. So to thank them, I am initiating the Puzzle Pride Campaign. Puzzle Man serves to acknowledge both the people in our lives who have supported us all the way and our pride as Puzzle Pieces. Individually, we are but one piece. Together, we are the completed puzzle in all its colorful glory. I hope you join me in this campaign as I award the first Puzzle Pride Award to Understanding Invisible Illnesses (UII). Live to Help, and Help to Live. Nobody understands this and acts on it better than UII. Keep an eye out on Facebook for the Official Aspie Epilogue Facebook Page, coming later this month.
May you find peace with yourself, within yourself (piece?).
