Work hard for the triumphs you can make…

And to the ones who don’t, look at those people who do to do it themselves!

People crave affection, People crave connection, People crave whatever they can do for inspiration to do good deeds in this world. The most important plan we all have at one point in our life is to follow someone or something which has inspired us to do well. Some people truly follow in a person’s footsteps while other people don’t. There is always people we want to follow in our life, but we must also give respect to our own talents to succeed. Some people journey in this world wanting to following in their idol’s footsteps without making their own mark. The people who make their own mark in life develop their own strength to do well as their idols.

It is not necessary to be exactly like your idol, but to use their success as guidance for your own success. It is a different kind of feeling opening up to knowing we are all unique. For instance, someone may love Vascular Ultrasound while another person may love Echocardiography, or you may find a unique person who loves both.

The love for a career path any one chooses like Temple Grandin’s passion for Animal Science or my passion for the Art of Anatomy especially in the Human body drives the force to know it well. When someone has a driving force to know their love for something very well, nothing can stop the person from learning it very well almost perfectly. The most important aspect of our life is to learn, do, and perfect the passion on our own.

Ultrasound Technology gives me the driving force to know the Anatomy very well without any weakness. It is a hard task at times, but it can be done. The Human Body is like a machine which was created to keep us functioning at our very best when we are strong enough to not let stressors get to us to make us weaker. We have an infinite mind which we can only use well enough if we learn how to use it to optimize our anatomy to function in the world.

The Circulatory system in our bodies creates a ongoing transport of nutrients and wastes. Like the mind gives us the capacity to live comfortably in our lives if only we not let too much stress smack us hard in the face. Breathe each day with each breath of fresh air by letting yourself do the thing which makes you the most happy to live your life to the fullest. Never forget when you are performing the passion at the very best of your abilities, and don’t let nothing stand in the way of getting the job done.

REMEMBER: There is working to move pass the past and their is just working hard enough to live what you are meant to do!

A better Understanding begins in May

The Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee names key figures on their board including an Adult on the Autism Spectrum such as Ari Ne’eman. As many of you all know Ari’s description speaks for itself. He leads many people with different disabilities to advocate for themselves. Some people who are ignorant may not believe certain people especially Autistics can ever speak for themselves, but the Autistic Self Advocacy Network is here to help Autistics do it. The IACC is heading in the right direction especially by appointing a man who started and continues to fight for Neurodiversity. One man may lead, but it takes a whole group of people to gain acknowledgement and understanding of what the leader is trying to say.

I can not believe how many ignorant people there are in the world who can not comprehend how an Autistic can speak with proper guidance. I have spoken to many people in my adult life who feel I can not be Autistic/on the Spectrum because I speak. The gain people get from early intervention even when Autism was not really known in the past, makes a big difference later in the person’s life. Early intervention helps those people with Autism to be able to function in society and become a contributing member of society. Just look at myself, Temple Grandin, Ari Ne’eman, or some famous people in past and present history who have done well. Sometimes it is more of a tenacious feeling the person may have inside which keeps them going through the roughness of letting their feelings out.

The last thing any one would want is to be placed in an institution or a group home because society feels they are not worth anything until they are cured from their disability. It takes perseverance, guts, and pushing through to show the abilities you (a person with a disability like Autism) may have. Every one has value in this world and succeeds in different ways. Focus on your strengths and the world opens up to you.
Essentially, the guidance a person gets by receiving early intervention skills training as a toddler only helps later in life when the child grows in to adulthood since they will have a strong balanced ego.

As April’s Autism Month ended, May has begun as the beginning to end the ignorance of some Neurotypicals toward Autistic individuals and other disabilities. Are Neurotypicals ready to learn?

Good Luck to every one who has been appointed to the IACC recently. Research can be done, but understanding what people can do is more important. People can do things with proper guidance. The Adults at Adaptations in New York City is just one of the few Neurodiverse groups of people supporting each other to help make friends, self-advocate, and adapt to society. It is important for people to have a strong enough ego to be able to feel good about themselves.

I end with a famous quote about how every one is different:

Nobody can be exactly like me. Sometimes even I have trouble doing it.

Tallulah Bankhead (1903 – 1968)


The time when I saw Temple Grandin this past Sunday and my interests

To end Autism Neurodiversity Month, I saw Temple Grandin this past Sunday in Park Slope, Brooklyn. I had got to talk to her a little bit, but she seemed overwhelmed. I feel I am very similar to Temple in many ways. The Autism Spectrum is different, unique, yet similar.

Speaking of Temple Grandin, she is officially in Time magazine’s Most Influential people in the world of 2010. I’d have to say she is an inspiration to me.

I asked her a question this past Sunday about teaching other people with Autism Spectrum to do Ultrasound Technology like what I am doing. She first asked me if I work in a hospital. I told her “No, I work in a doctor’s office.” She started talking about how it is very important for people on the Autism Spectrum to get work experience in their specified special interest. It builds our egos and our egos are not too good to begin with when we are humiliated or feeling down due to Neurotypicals being ignorant.

I told her on Sunday how her mom and my mother are very similar especially how Temple was raised by her mom and how I was raised by mother. Every time I hear how her mother got her speech therapy at about the age of 2, I think about how my mother did the same for me.

One last thing Temple Grandin spoke about how there are too many Autistic/Aspie people who are developing a special interest in Autism. She feels how Autistic/Aspie people should be developing their own special interest outside of learning about Autism. I believe Autism is already in us and we should let Neurotypicals study us and be able to learn from how we are.

My artwork is getting really interesting and I love my interest in Ultrasonography in medicine. Someday I would like to teach those Autistic/Aspie individuals who would want to learn Ultrasound in the school I will create.

Speaking of my interest: Here is an interesting video clip:


The circulation is great, and my art is even great too. Coming soon is my artwork as I can figure out how to put it up. Blood is important to be pumped in all of us. Keep up your strength and stay healthy!

I leave you with a good song to listen to today:

NEURODIVERSITY spreads everywhere!
