Why hello there! Thank you so much for stopping by my website. you may have found yourself here by clicking the link for my podcast or my YouTube or my Instagram. But I am so glad you’re here no matter what. on this week’s episode of the Melanie Gray show that was released early this morning at 7:00 a.m. I talk about why December was emotionally hard for me and why 2020 has already set itself up to be a stressful year for me.

It’s crazy for me to think that I was looking forward to 2020 as a new decade as the best decade yet only to have things get rattled for me in front of my face. two weeks before Christmas I got in a car accident was rear-ended by someone going about 30 miles an hour. I got whiplash and I’m okay. But it was still alarming and a major inconvenience. The following week my oldest son was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. then the next week was Christmas and then it was New year’s and then I was sick and here we are.

I find that since the beginning of the year or really since the doctor sat us down and told us about this new diagnosis I’ve been having out of body experiences. I can’t believe this is happening to me I don’t know who I am right now like this is turning into such a chaotic crazy time in my life and looking forward into the future all I see are dollar bills leaving my bank account to Ford for everything.

It’s ironic to me that I’m writing this blog post 12 hours after the podcast was released but I just came out of the orientation for the ABA or applied behavioral analysis. The kind gentleman who gave the presentation told us in a very loving way that what is coming ahead of us is going to be hard it’s going to be complicated but eventually it will be become our new normal. And he said that going into ABA therapy is basically going to cause us to have an entire lifestyle change. I had no idea entering into 2020 or this new decade of my life that my lifestyle would be so radically rocked. Having kids radically changed my life but this again is going to radically change all of ours.

I ask my only ask really is that you listen to my podcast you hear my voice. My hope in my dreams is to one day own my own business stop working for the man and to make enough money that I can support myself and my children. I really want to attend mops meetings.

Next week on the Melanie Gray show podcast I think I’ll talk about things in a lighter sense. Next Saturday January 25th I’m attending my first quilt show and I am extremely excited about it! February is right around the corner with Valentine’s day and my little sisters turning 30! And that means I just got a whole lot older.
