Last night I watched the Pittsburgh Steelers game against the Washington Redskins and it was an amazing game. The Steelers won! It was amazing because the Steelers were controlling the game with the running game, something they failed to do for most of the last 4 years. It was thanks in no small part to the young running back named, Jonathan Dwyer. Jonathan was getting his start due to injuries to other players. Dwyer so far has two games in a row with over 100 yards rushing. The Steelers haven’t had back to back 100 yard rushing games, again, in 4 years! Dwyer is a great running back, clearly, and the Steelers find themselves lucky to have him. He’s so good that he’s created a running backs controversy with the Steelers because he’s only filling in at the moment, but that looks as if that may change soon. This is all well and […]

The First Rule of ADHD – NOT to talk about ADHD and why we should Change it

The First Rule of ADHD – NOT to talk about ADHD and why we should Change it

  The first rule of ADHD is not to talk about ADHD. You may be aware of this unspoken, super-secret rule, and you may have already broken it several times. However, there are thousands of people who live by this rule out of necessity, out of fear of judgment, and out of fear of reprisal. You may walk past, work with, or study with people that have ADHD and never know it, unless they break the rule and talk about their ADHD. What if someone you know as a good person and seems to do well told you that he or she has ADHD? What would change? How would you then view them? Would you then be more critical of every mistake they ever made and reanalyze your opinion of them? Many people consider the first rule of ADHD to be very important in order to maintain privacy, and to avoid misjudgment. Did you […]

Have you ever wanted to be… better than you are?

Have you ever wanted to be… better than you are?

What would it be like to scale the highest mountain? What would it be like to catch the rose before the curtains close? What would it be like to stand on the podium in triumph and listen to the crowd adore your accomplishment, to be applauding you? Yes, you! What would it be like? Can you hear them? Listen, listen closely. What would it be like to come home after a successful day, not having made too many mistakes, not having forgotten an appointment, not having been chastised or punished? What would it be like to sit down, open your books and diligently work on your homework and finish it too? Listen, listen closely. Can you hear them now? Take a moment, relax, and cut the chatter in your mind, focus. You can hear them. I know you can. You’re just lazy, you’re just not interested enough. You’re just no good for […]
