Traveling with Autism

Written by the author’s wife 

“In this family, we do autism….this is the aftermath of a meltdown. (Literally) forty minutes of uncontrollable screaming beginning when he got in his stroller stemming from a busy vacation day. We played, we went to the aquarium, we ate, we walked, we ran..we even slept a little. This may sound like an eventful day to you…it may sound like a perfect day even. But for Liam it was super overwhelming..terribly overstimulating. So after inconsolable screams and breaking free of the stroller on our way back to the hotel room and then tipping it over when we got there…..I will sit here in this bed and hold him, let him know that I understand that he has a hard time and just enjoy the moment. ❤💙💛💚”

I was near the end of 2017 when I realized that my life was totally out of balance. I was 30 and I was working my life away. I did not have strong relationships with my wife, family, or friends. It was around this time that I came across THE HAPPINESS PROJECT by Gretchen Rubin. It was then that I decided to launch my own year long project towards personal happiness for the entire year of 2017.
