This episode took a turn when my 10 year old ADHD warrior sat at my desk and said, "mom! I want to record an episode on my own!" What started off as a quick audio recording, turned into her taking notes and sharing some of her ADHD journey with you all, along with some tools and strategies that she finds helpful!
I just had to run with it and turn it into this episode! Validating her voice, thoughts, and feelings is empowering to her and I hope that this episode empowers you to share your journey too! Too often we tie shame to getting diagnosed with ADHD, but that is something we can change! Shame only lives in our minds if we allow it to. The way we present our differences to ourselves and each other will steer self- confidence and self- esteem.
This being the last episode of ADHD Awareness Month, I wanted to really encourage you to practice that self-awareness of how your brilliantly created brain works differently, so that you can first celebrate the strength while you name and tackle the struggles head on with the tools and strategies that work best for you!
Again, I know I have touched on this topic, but that's how important it is!! We often need to hear things at least 3 times, for me even more to really comprehend and begin making a change! Let's continue on this journey together one step at a time!
