Life is a paradox of seemingly opposite situations and experiences that seem to happen without any explanation.
When events are perceived in a dark or hopeless way, we often ask:
- Why me?
- Why did this happen to me?
- I am hopeless.
We find ourselves drowning in our own, uncontrolled emotions.
Maybe these paradoxical experiences are here to teach us something important.

We as a human race are very uncomfortable with silence. Just check it out for your self.
The pressure to perform is based on established standards that limit your ability to use your strengths. There is so much emphasis to meet established standards of performance that limit the options your brain is hard wired to pursue.
Almost everyone procrastinates at some point.
Procrastination is one of the major issues that people with ADHD have a difficult time managing. They put of important tasks that need to be done today and may focus on trivial tasks which only delay their important priorities.

I look at is a unique brain wiring with a set of brain challenges that can manifest in different situations.
You have grown up with a belief that in order to climb up the ladder of success you need to focus on what you don’t do well and work hard to make it something you can do well.
What really serves you well is focusing on what you already do well and focusing on doing it even better.
It recently dawned on me that I have started to go back to an old pattern. It is one that really does not empower me to get my engine all revved up for the exciting day ahead. I have to remember that every day is a new beginning with a new adventure waiting to happen. I have to give myself permission to use the key that starts my ignition.
