“You can’t wait until life isn’t hard anymore before you decide to be happy.”

As I heard Jane, also known as Nightbirde, say those words on America's Got Talent, I was overcome with emotion.

The tears started flowing as I listened to her powerful words.

This is a young woman, with an incredible singing voice, who is battling cancer with a two percent survival rate.

2 %.

Her reaction and response to that?

“It’s not zero percent!”

Friends, if I’m being completely transparent and honest, I don’t know that I’d have the same optimistic outlook and strength within me to say that AND have a smile on my face.

But SHE DID.

And before she started her audition, she said one more phrase that really pulled on my heart strings.

“I’m so much more than the bad things that happen to me.”

Goosebumps ran up and down my arms and legs.

Every heartfelt word she said.

Every powerful lyric in her original song titled “It’s OK”

Every single time she spoke, she did it with such beauty and grace.

This magnificent woman is the epitome of strength and hope.

We have all had our fair share of struggles over this past year and at times, it was almost too much to handle.

But she put things into perspective for me that I desperately needed right now.

And maybe you do too?

I think we can all learn from this beautiful soul.

Let’s stop waiting for life not to be hard any more.

Let’s stop allowing our struggles define who we are and start tackling them head on with strength and perseverance.

Let’s choose to smile a little more and cry a little less.

Let’s do more of what makes us happy and remember to be grateful for all of the blessings that surround us.

And as Nightbirde so graciously reminds us in her beautiful song,

“We’re all a little lost sometimes.”

And it’s going to be OK.

So let’s start living life every day like it could be our last.

Just like she does.

Important reminder ❤️

When it comes to autism, no two autistics are alike.

Some can communicate, others can’t, and will never be able to.

Some can talk, but prefer to communicate nonverbally.

Some love to talk, while others are quiet.

Some prefer identity-first language, and others use person-first.

Some will live independently, and others require 24/7 care for life.

Some like the puzzle piece symbol, others don’t.

Some have an impressive “splinter skill”, but most do not.

When it comes to autism, we all have different abilities and varied opinions.

There isn’t a single autistic voice, and there’s not a single form of autism. If you’re looking to learn more about autism, have conversations with an autistic person, and then another, and then another.

But remember, some people with autism cannot communicate, whether verbal or otherwise, so to get to know them, you might have to talk to the people closest to them, those who care for them and often will for their entire life.
