April is Autism Awareness Month. We would love to share a glimpse into the courageous journey of one mother and her family on finding peace, acceptance, and celebration with Autism.
"Every turn from the moment he received the diagnosis seemed like an epic battle. What did Autism, this unexpected journey, mean for Arthur and our family?" -Katrina D.
Olympians Jazmine Fenlator-Victorian from Jamaica bobsled rocking MyIntent in the Olympic village along with Heather Moyse and Melissa Lotholz from Canada bobsled.
We were honored when Team Jamaica reached out to see if we would be able to help them spread positivity at the Olympic games. Our team quickly shipped 500 MyIntent pieces to PyeongChang to support Team Jamaica.
Check out Jazmine's inspiring Olympic story:
"My husband knows how afraid of flying I am and he always tells me to think of it as “soaring like a bird.” This always makes me smile and feel a little better. Recently, I boarded a plane for a trip I had to take for work, and as I reached into my bag for my stress ball I like to grip during flights, I pulled out a small box with my name on it. Inside was a lovely little bracelet with the word “SOAR” with a little heart. The rest of my trip was easier because it was like having him by my side the whole time. I will never take it off.” - Sharesa F.
For 2018, forget setting a resolution. Instead, ring in the New Year with an intention. This slight change to how you set your goal can actually improve your success in achieving whatever it is that you desire.
When you set an intention instead of a resolution, you stop thinking about wanting what you don't have, and start channeling your energy toward what you want to achieve. If you happen to find yourself straying from your intention, you are less likely to feel you have failed, since you are still moving towards your ultimate goal. Instead, you can simply readjust, recommit and continue on towards that goal. As you can see, setting an intention is a gentler and often times more effective way of achieving a goal.
"Being a Maker has had a significant impact on a number of lives. So many people drift along, one day to the next, and never think about what is important to them. Simply being present and asking questions has a huge impact. I love it when I see eyes widen in realization of their WORD. I’ve met many people in need of support. Talking to them and guiding them in discovering the WORD they need to move forward in their lives is so rewarding!"
