    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? How did I get here? Well, it’s fairly simple. Since the beginning of March, I had been waking up…

    Not letting shame get the better of me

    I’m sure that we’ve all experienced shame at one point or another. It is one of those emotions that may come up every once in a while. However, it seems that, if you have ADHD, shame seems to have a way of creeping up a bit more often. It seems that a lot of people with ADHD do face shame more often than individuals with neurotypical brains. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve forgot something or failed or whatever and felt so ashamed. Why couldn’t I be like other moms? Why can’t I have a neurotypical brain? Why do I struggle so much at simple tasks? I must…

    Self Love is Important

    So, this week, I want to talk a little bit of self love. So many people struggle with their image of themselves and celebrating who they are. If you read my last post, you’ll know that it’s taking me a long time to accept myself, my ADHD, and who I am. I do realize that there are others out there, who are in a similar situation. Now, take a minute and think about how you see yourself and how you view yourself. Are you confident? Do you have low self-esteem? Do you have positive views of yourself, or negative? For a long time, I wasn’t confident. I didn’t have positive…

    Acceptance

    It’s taken me a while to accept who I am. To accept my strengths as well as my flaws. This week, I was thinking of this. I was thinking of myself, of my strengths, my flaws, things that I would like to work on, all of it. And I am finally accepting myself for who I am. I’m not saying that there aren’t things that I don’t need to work on. I know I am not perfect and there are things that I would like to change and improve. After all, I am only human. I’m not perfect and there are things that I do need to change. That being…

    My Journey with Acceptance

    Over the last month or two, I’ve done some thinking about myself. And about my ADHD. Although I was diagnosed almost 20 years ago, I still can’t say that I ever really came to terms with it. I do still struggle with it. I’ve pretended that I don’t have it. There have been so many times, when I’ve wished I didn’t have ADHD. But the fact is that I do have ADHD. It is a part of me. It is a small part of who I am. Over the last few weeks, I’ve realized that I do have to come to terms with it. That it is a part of…
