I realize that my blog post subjects often depend on my mood.
And I’m sorry about that, since sometimes I’m in a down or depressed mood.
And yet, I’m not really all that sorry.
Sorry, not sorry …
See, you have up days and down days as well. And we, you and I, are trying to get through this ADHD thing together.
Well, not together so much as we are both trying to get through it and my experiences might give you some insight into your experiences and if that works out then I’ve done my job.
And when I’m down, feeling somewhat depressed, like yesterday, maybe you’ll recognize that and either take away something helpful from my insight, or experience some epiphany from the change of perspective of watching someone else go through what you might also experience.
If either one of those things happen, take my advice. Grab that perspective, that insight, that new knowledge, and run with it.
Don’t worry about me, save yourself.
Oh, well, if you want to comment on a post then by all means, let me know what you observed. I’ll happily take your insights to heart and use what I can from them.
And additionally …
If I can use what you’ve figured out, and if I can put it into words, I’ll pass it on here.
Yes, this is my blog. And yes, I am contracted to write it. And yes, I’ll come up with something to say every time I sit down at the keyboard and start typing … I’m like that, verbose, chatty, can’t shut up, whatever.
But I’m perfectly happy to share your insight if you want me to.
Because in the end
Although this is a blog, it is also a community.
And it isn’t my community. Well, okay it is mine, but it’s also yours.
When I say it isn’t mine I mean it isn’t just mine.
It is ours
And while I am the one writing the posts, trust me, that’s just ’cause I word good.
Your views and revelations are just as valid as mine.
Yeah, yesterday I was feeling down. But I have ADHD. And today is a reboot.
It took little more than finishing up what I had to do yesterday and then getting into something else to move my mind on to a better place.
Yes, it kept drifting back to feeling a down, but each time I was distracted, it was a little easier to move on, and the feeling of being depressed stayed away a little longer.
Today I can think about yesterday and honestly tell myself it’s okay.
In fact, each time I contemplate the shift in my life that happened yesterday, I find myself treating that as an annoying distraction.
And today, I have no time for annoying distractions.
Frac that noise! Today, I’m feeling too up.
