Day 207: My Words Put to Music: Traits

Traits of Females with Aspergers (words by Samantha Craft)

I did not make this video.

My Words Put to Music

Hello you, who longs to be loved and noticed

You know everything is okay? Right?

You know you are just experiencing emotions

Nothing else

You are not flawed

You are not wrong

You are perfect in your feelings

It’s okay

You don’t have to pretend anymore

It’s okay

Show all your colors

You are most beautiful that way

Share what you have found inside of you

This truth

That even in your frailty and fear, you are beauty

There is no shame

In being real

We all get scared

We all get worried

We all believe someone might steal something or someone

But they can’t

They are just borrowing

Just basking in the collective wisdom

Remember nothing in this world is yours

You know happiness is not found in possession

So today give what was never yours

To a world that is you

And let your words be put to music

~ Samantha Craft, August 2012

And I say my favorite daily mantra: How could life get any better than this!

  1. Excellent, Sam. You know, what I noticed as the music played and the lists came and went – I have a lot of those traits. I am not Aspie, but I could better understand you and others when I realized that we all, probably, have several of those traits. You have more of them and, I imagine, to a greater degree. It’s much more difficult for you to function through some of your processes than it is for me. I had a hard time dealing with many of them; I can only imagine how it is (must have been) for you.
    Hugs… πŸ™‚ to my LBS,
    Scott – BB

    1. Thanks BB for your words.I appreciate the kindness. It is getting easier and easier for me. I am learning to truly understand myself, and when I meet other women like me, and I see how lovely inside they are, I can’t help but love myself more. Still, it can be very hard at times, so your words are taken to heart. πŸ™‚ Have a good day. LS πŸ™‚

  2. Each day I learn a little more about myself. Thanks to your endless quest for knowledge, for yourself and others you are changing your life, and ours in the most profound ways. Sharing your raw truth tells us we are not alone.. and there is hope.. regardless of our personal human condition. Love you and all you have done for us!! xxx K

    1. Oh….thank you so much…it’s not always easy….and last night I had a hard time at it…but I cry tears of joy knowing all these lovely, lovely souls. Your words always amaze me…gifted with a powerful energy in everything you type….. Thank you again….sigh…needed this today. HUGS. πŸ™‚ me

      1. Thank you Sam. We know I’ve had my some say, ‘unfair’ share, but that’s their perspective, eh? Growing pains usually hurt, but they allow us to stand taller and reach ever closer to our dreams.. I can see the stars reflecting in your bright eyes. Keep the Kleenex (and TP) handy for the breakthroughs in life. And remember, you are LOVED!! xx

  3. What a fantastic tribute, not only to you personally, but to the building of awareness of these ‘not always recognized’ traits of females with Aspergers. This video makes the education “user-friendly” and your words are always expressed so effectively. I could not be happier — your poem says it all… embrace it – it’s all perfect – as you are perfect just as you are dearest Sam … Hugs and Love… will be sharing this with many!! xxoo

  4. Hmmm… getting the word out can be helpful and acknowledging you is good but what if the images and music are not your cup of tea? Copyright is still that. Your words are YOUR words. Collaboration is one thing. Taking without asking in advance and saying thank you is something else entirely.

    1. It’s okay. I’m good. πŸ™‚
      I share so many youtubes on my blog….and most are someone else’s song lyrics put to music or images….it’s all good.
      And she credited me and the blog.
      Hope to reach more people.
      Hugs and will be catching up with blog reading probably tonight or tomorrow. πŸ™‚

  5. This was a great post and video. I put a link to it on my website– hope that’s okay to do. New at this. You, more than anyone, has helped me understand traits in females so much better! Thank you. I was not diagnosed until 61.

    1. Thank you for the kind comment. πŸ™‚ Linking to my blog is fine. πŸ™‚ And much appreciated. I just ask that no one copy and paste my words to their blog. Thanks. πŸ™‚ Enjoy the blogging journey. I
      need to pop over and visit your blog. πŸ™‚ Sam

  6. Interesting . . . my first thought is to agree with solodialogue. Were you consulted ahead of time? Did you have the opportunity to give your blessingβ€”your permission?

    Having said all that, I found the work quite beautiful. The video is pleasing to look at and listen to, and your wordsβ€”the heart and soul of itβ€”complete the picture.

    This video is evidence that people are noticing you more and more each day; you are going places kid!

    1. It’s okay. I understand your thoughts, but I’ve let this go. πŸ™‚
      I’m glad you like the video. A fellow aspie made the video. She has many others. If you watch her others, maybe you can see why I let it go.
      Sam πŸ™‚
