Today I intend to remember all that I have accomplished so far - It's easy to get overwhelmed by the challenges that life throws at us. But it is important to remember all the progress we have made so far. We should take a moment to appreciate all the accomplishments we have achieved and set our daily intentions for making more progress.

We should continue to cast our votes for progress towards who you want to become, and take pride in all you have done to shape your life and thinking so far. We should remember that no matter how difficult our journey has been, we have made it through and accomplished so much more than we thought was possible.

Let us take a moment to remember all that we have accomplished so far and use it as inspiration and motivation for what lies ahead of us.


In the world of ADHD, it's easy to fall into the trap of thinking we have to handle everything on our own. We may feel the pressure to prove our capabilities, fearing that asking for help somehow diminishes our worth. However, understanding the true power of seeking support can be a game-changer on our ADHD journey. It's time to break free from the notion that we have to do it all ourselves.

Taking on everything ourselves can lead to burnout, increased stress levels, and a never-ending cycle of overwhelm. By delegating tasks, seeking assistance, and accepting support, we lighten our load and create space for self-care, personal growth, and improved overall well-being.

Rather than viewing asking for help as a sign of weakness, let's reframe it as a strength. Acknowledging our areas of challenge and reaching out for support demonstrates self-awareness and a commitment to growth. By recognizing that we all have limitations, we open ourselves up to the possibility of receiving guidance, expertise, and empathy.
