Hello 2013: Hello All

Most of you that follow my blog, thus far, know that I tend to ramble. But seeing as its 5AM and well past time to hit the pillow, I will keep this short and sweet.

Aside from my hopes for my upcoming book this year, my biggest hope is that I can set an example for others in practicing acceptance of others.

This begins within myself. I am going to work on building more confidence in myself despite the hurdles I face. Everyone has their challenges right?

My biggest fear, as cliche as it sounds, is truly fear itself.

In 2013, Aspergers Syndrome isn’t going to hold me back the same way it has before. I am going to work on seeing the positive sides to it more than the negative.

In 2013, I won’t let my orientation hold me back either. I love my wife. I can respect other’s views and still love my family and not hide it.

It’s time for change. It’s time for me to change. I’m willing to take those first steps. It’s up to us to make this new year an incredible one and I am so ready for this.
