Thoughts, firing through my mind at all times. Whether lying down to go to bed, sitting in a class, or even having a conversation with a friend…there they are, and have always been - my thoughts.
My ongoing rapid brain might also have something to do with the fact that I tend to be so intuitive, to a fault, if that makes sense. Sensitive and emotional are two adjectives that might be used to describe me, right alongside enthusiastic and energetic. (The latter two being more obvious traits of ADHD.) Though people might not be aware, all of these traits are significant components of what an individual who has an ADHD brain may encounter.
There are many people who are shocked to find out that I, someone with a Master’s degree, so driven and dedicated to juggling a career and being a mother and a wife, have ADHD. There’s still somewhat of a perspective from certain people that individuals with ADHD are all hyper and wild or strange and out of it.
As I embark on my next chapter of becoming an ADHD Life Coach, I aim to break down barriers, help people realize the gifts, understand the challenges, and know that it takes all kind of people to make the world a productive place.
Our knowledge of the brain and how it functions is so progressive. We know more, which allows us to identify each person’s unique strengths so he/she can go and leave his/her mark.
ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is a medical term that doesn’t even resonate so much with me. Where’s the deficit? Rather, I like to connect with the advantages. I plan to share with my readers just how I do this.
This journey is beginning for many, continuing for some, and hasn’t even started for others. Regardless of where we are on our journeys, together, we can BREAK. DOWN. BARRIERS!!
What barriers of ADHD do YOU see getting in the way?
