MINDSHIFT (takeaways) 

  1. Be grateful for everything and reflect on the positive in your journey. Focus on the positive because then you start to see more positive happen.
  2. Trust your intuition, if it doesn’t feel right move on and find something else. Your intuition is going to lead you to a path. You know your child the best and you are your child's expert. In trusting your intuition there will be bumps because it's taking you to where you need to go.

Remember life isn’t linear. There are extreme highs and extreme lows. Just know when you’re in that low, it’ll only get better. That’s why it's good to reflect because when you have hit lows in the past you can see that you bounced back from it, so that should give you hope.
