[caption id="attachment_2460" align="alignleft" width="295"] I’d be more thankful if I could concentrate on being thankful[/caption]

As happens all to often, the Holiday took precedent over the actual thanks giving. I think it would be a great thing to set aside a weekend to actually be thankful, or a day. Well, maybe an hour? But we’d have to keep it a secret, or some clever soul would come up with some way to obligate us to spend money.
But I need more than a shelter from the marketing storm
You see, if you have ADHD, you possibly didn’t spend much of last weekend being thankful. I know I didn’t. There were things to worry about, things to do. And I have trouble being mindful enough to be thankful. Being thankful means gathering thoughts of what to be thankful for.

  1. I can so relate to this! I am actually visualizing myself going through the same kind of process. I too was diagnosed as an adult. I could have accomplished so much more in my life had I known before attending college.

    • Hi, SusanD,

      thanks for your comment, I’m glad you were able to relate to this post. It does make you wonder what might have been, but there’s no greater waste of time. Let’s figure out what can still be, instead.

      Thanks for reading my post,
      Kelly
