Welcome to my online home, thank you for visiting!
I’m Chevone, a parent of one, a sister of one, an aunt of one and a daughter of two – one of whom have since exited this earth, quite swiftly due to pancreatic cancer. I have a wicked sense of humour, even though I don’t understand many jokes so if I give you a blank stare then please do explain.
My life in general is boring if you are looking from the outside in, however if you lived in my head then you’d be amazed at all the excitement, adventure, worlds, dimensions, anxiety and quirks. I work full-time, parent all the time, studying part-time and have recently decided to . . .
I have many “ah-ha” moments, parenting for my child and not what others expect parenting to be and I suppose you could say the decision to homeschool is one of those moments. On my blog you may learn about our Neurodiversity, Asperger’s Syndrome, an Autism Spectrum Disorder. The way we experience the world around us can only be described as evolutionary – my son at times refers to us as the “special editions”.
Together, our adventure includes the roller coaster of learning to understand hearing loss and Asperger’s. I am passionate about parent empowerment and focused on parent support, Decibels of Love, for three years, with an amazing team of other dedicated volunteers.
Writing, like awesomeness, flows through my veins – it is part of my DNA and every once in a while you will come across some of my fictional stories and poetry. Yes, I referred to myself as awesome – even though you may not think so if you meet me, chances of meeting me is minimal though (unless, work of course) since I tend to be a recluse, hence my online home.
My life experiences includes poverty, abuse, destruction, loss, heartache, addiction and the resilience of the human spirit to triumph and source strength from its weakest and most vulnerable moments. I do hope that you will come across at least one post that resonates with you.
Some of my personal quotes that I live by:
- “Create your own Happiness”
- “Don’t lose yourself in the behavior of others”
- “Live your best life even in your weakest moments”
- “I’d rather be the odd one out than spend a lifetime trying to fit in where I don’t belong”
- “The art of success can be found in the ability to acknowledge that failure is not the end. Failure is an opportunity to learn, to teach, to grow and also to let go and dream a new dream.”
