Liberation Day

Two years ago today I started this little business. I named it Liberation Therapy for a multitude of reasons.

Active Mindfulness!

I’ve got a new go to mindfulnesss/self care thing. It helps me disconnect from my phone, the outside world, and gives me focus, a sense of accomplishment, and distraction, and at the end of it, I’ve got something to show for it. Lego!

Autism Awareness – Communication 3/3
