How to Stay Positive and Happy Every Day – with ADHD!

How to Stay Positive and Happy Every Day – with ADHD!

The title of this post is a question I received from a reader just the other day and I thought it would make a great blog post: How can I stay positive and happy every day? I have ADHD!   There’s a common assumption that if you have ADHD life is pretty much is going to suck every day. Heck, I bet you can prove it, too! We are quickly drawn to the ‘problems’, ’challenges’ and ‘bad behavior’. It is natural and normal.   Here’s a simple multi-part tip that I have used for the last few years and I have found it very effective: Every morning before starting the day tell yourself something ‘good’ is going to happen today. At night, as you settle in to bed, reach over to your nightstand and open a special journal. In this special journal write down the ‘good’ thing(s) that happened that day. […]

Lessons from Steve Jobs! Today is a Great Day even with ADHD!

Lessons from Steve Jobs! Today is a Great Day even with ADHD!

“Today is a day the Lord has made and I shall rejoice and be glad in it!” ~Me, today. I admit, I’ve never been an overly religious person, but the above statement always changes my perspective of the day that is ahead of me and I say it every morning when I wake up. Earlier this year I underwent surgery for something the doctors were not sure of. First, they were going to insert a camera into my body just above my naval and explore my insides to see if they could find the source of my pain and if they did, perhaps remove whatever it turned out to be. I had been suffering from severe pain in my abdomen for several months and didn’t know why. I was scared, to put it gently. They had already done every examination you can imagine, but could not find the source. As it turned out […]

The End of having a Best Friend?

The End of having a Best Friend?

I found this pic, it may be a little too far off base, but I thought it was funny and relates. It’s all fun and games, until… Someone recently shared with me an article from the New York Times about the end of having a best friend. My first thought about this was “Are they crazy?” and my final thoughts on this subject are: “Are they absolutely, ridiculously, out of their minds?!?” I mean c’mon, have we come so far that we are back to burning supposed Witches at the stake? ‘But Jamie doesn’t have a best friend and her older sister does’… And the point is? Jamie will eventually find a best friend and confidant, no reason to try and equalize everything in the world to the point we are just being categorically controlling, manipulating and restrictive to natural growth. Kids can’t even go out to play as we […]

Is ADHD a Product of the Modern World?

Is ADHD a Product of the Modern World?

It’s not, but sometimes I think it is, at least partially. Maybe Leonardo da Vinci had ADHD, maybe Albert Einstein had it and maybe Genghis Khan had it too. I don’t know if they did, but if they did it didn’t stop them from reaching greatness and changing the world. When I think about it, I realize that they were special people and maybe they didn’t have ADHD, perhaps they were exactly what they were: extremely intelligent, had wonderful talents and they were especially innovative and creative. We remember and admire them for the great people they were, the great things they accomplished and yet, we do not always seriously consider their time and place in history, regarding pace. The time available to do something today is incomparable to the time that was available to do something only half a century ago, much less hundreds of years. What did you do today or just yesterday? How many […]

Today!

There’s a feeling we all have, the feeling of something more, some kind of destiny. It’s not just fantasy, it’s not just imagination, it’s real and we can’t touch it. It’s off in the distance, just out of reach in front of our mind’s eye. We can’t clearly make out what it is, and yet, somehow, somehow we know what it is without any way of explaining it to anyone, much less ourselves. It’s there, we know it’s there… so far away. Intuition, the tug forward, to keep going because somehow, someway we are going to reach that something… whatever kind of wonderful that something must be. Is it destiny? Is it love? It could be many things and with the only clarity we possess, it is our hopes, our dreams… it is more, something so much more! Ever feel that? The wanting, the needing, the reaching… for it… We all […]
