    Taking care of myself

    During the month of August, I wasn’t really active with my blog. I didn’t work a lot on my side hustle. I didn’t spend much time interacting with others on social media, or promoting my blog or side hustle, or much of anything like that. Why? Why was I not doing these things? Because it got to the point where I was tired, emotionally and physically. I couldn’t do it. I didn’t want to quit, but I needed to stop and reflect. And that’s what I did. How did it happen?

    Time to think about self-care

    Let’s face it, our lives can be busy. There’s no denying it. There’s definitely a lot to do in a day. It is exhausting for anyone. It is difficult sometimes to have to juggle work, school, family life, and anything else we may have going on in our lives. This may not be much of a surprise. For those with ADHD/ADD, this is true as well. However, there is a slight difference. Having ADHD/ADD can be exhausting all on its own. Not only are we trying to juggle everything in our day-to-day lives, like everyone else, but we are also trying to make sure we’re focusing on what we’re supposed…
