I didn’t realize how often I would think about those three words and the insight and wisdom shared by a woman I truly respected as a mother and grade school Principal. I know I never expected or planned to write a book last year.
However, when the surprising offer came my way it was certainly flattering, exciting and filled me with hope. The great thing about school, sports, even a job, is that one learns quickly one of life’s many lessons – perseverance. No one can prepare you for all the ups and downs necessary to complete any project and the mindset to establish and achieve a personal goal.
Clearly I remember the planning, the deadlines, and the frustrations writing and rewriting those final pages for 101 Games and Activities for Youth with Autism. The clock was ticking and I did not want to entertain anymore negative thoughts that I may miss my deadline due to photograph or manuscript changes for the final chapters. Well that’s history and now I wish I had the discipline to take more photographs, keep a daily journal and record all the new ideas, games and exercises.
Yes, of course there will be another book, however, I hope and believe the next publication will be completed by Right Fit trainers and students. Last week after a horseback riding fieldtrip, I decided we all needed a lesson getting on and off “greenie” our pretend Right Fit horse. Jake, a 9 year old camper with special needs, then made up “Giddy Up” And “Off You Go!” See the photos.
