Have you ever noticed that some days your ADHD is much more pronounced than others? I sure do. Today is certainly one of those ADHD days for me.
I’ve been forgetting things, neglecting things, dashing from one thing to the next leaving clutter in my wake, not getting my work done, playing on Facebook, staring out the window way too much, and generally messing things up and muddling about much more than normal.
It’s frustrating, and aggravating. Plus, I’ve spent way too much time pondering why today is so much harder than most other days. Did I stay up too late last night? Did I have one too many beers yesterday? Ate too many french fries? Didn’t exercise?
I’m incredibly grateful that ADHD days are few and far between for me now, because they weren’t always. My life used to be a parade of one ADHD day after another and it took years of hard work, awareness, and focus not to live like that anymore.
If every day is an ADHD for you, I challenge you to not just go with the flow. I challenge you to get angry enough with your ADHD and your situation that you decide to stop living like this and do something about it. It’s easy to get complacent. It’s easy to wallow in self-pity for your situation and the brain that you were dealt but that doesn’t solve anything.
As Henry Ford said, “Don’t find fault; find a remedy.” If everyday is an ADHD day I challenge you to learn what you need to do to get your brain to work better and to learn what you need to live a less chaotic, more successful life.
Life just doesn’t have to be so hard.
