#20 Break the tradition #40daychallenge2change
In the middle of the party Jaden wanted to go outside, see nature up close and personal. Then we decided to chase Seagulls, play ball, adding a quick game of tag on the beach. We dusted our feet off, washed our hands returned back to the festivities. We didn't miss anything but what we gained was a few hardy laughs and memories. Not living in a box is so much better.
#21 Don't Forget What Help Make You Strong! #40daychallenge2change
There was a time in my life where I felt bruised in spirit, frustrated, angry, disappointed, confused, and afraid because I didn't know what the diagnosis of autism meant for Jaden or my family! I would later find out it meant love without limits, to stretch myself mentally, physically and spiritually Pushing myself to a capacity I didn't even know existed. I learned to dig deep, give without expectation of any return, sacrifice, serve and work for a purpose bigger than me. I'm still a work in progress but I can never forget the very thing meant to break me down built me up and I'm grateful that God chose me for this assignment. It isn't easy but it's worth it! #jadensvoice#1tm#nextlevel
They say there is no place like home and their right! I'm elated by the many people who showed up with their hearts and hands today to help some of the most amazing well deserving centers I've seen in all my travels, Morgan Autism Center! Brad, Jim, their families and the staff moved my heart in ways where it was hard to see the day end. Jaden's Voice will continue to be a voice for the voiceless until their strong enough to have one of their own! #morganautismcenter#49ersgiveback#1tm#nextlevel thank you again to the York Family / 49ers for their commitment to help us reach one family at a time.
#22 Keep Going. Yesterday I hiked one of the most challenging peaks in the Bay Area. So many times climbing up the mountain I wanted to quit and coming down was even harder than going up. I wasn't as fast as everyone else they beat me to the top for sure however I do remember the word says the race isn't won by the swift nor the strong but those that endure! I just kept going and I didn't quit in-spite of all the challenges I had on that hill... #40daychallenge2change#1tm#nextlevel
My sister @vbellaesq and family gave me the most amazing birthday party that has lasted a few days! After an amazing spa day we hit the yoga studio to stretch not only our bodies but our minds. #1tm#nextlevel
What an awesome opportunity to be partnering with some of the coolest guys in the biz, Travis, Brandon and Marcus (The Profit-watch the show if you don't). While we discussed plans for a beautiful business venture Jaden contributed by playing video games (thanks to the guys who have a decked out office with an arcade) Jream gave her teenage perspective on what teens want, need think and feel, while Lee hammered out how athletes, professional teams will get involved! It's a family affair and we will stop at nothing until we reach every person place and thing to make sure this world accommodates for individuals diagnosed with autism AND their families are supported! We are about to #FLEX because it's #TIME2raisemoreawareness#1tm#nextlevel#jadensvoice
