Letting Go of A.D.D.: A Bumpy Road to Travel to Success

Letting Go of A.D.D.: A Bumpy Road to Travel to Success

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think about letting go of A.D.D?

Do you think of letting go of a disorder? And end up feeling like you don’t really know who you are anymore without it? Could be you feel lost because you’ve been known as having something wrong with you—a wrong that has defined you and limited what you thought you could do? Now what do you do?

Do you think about letting go of the fear that has lain deep in your bone marrow all this time that restricts what your reaching for in the sky and beyond?  Could it be that perhaps your vision actually does define you and it’s time to set aside your fear to unblock the pathway to achieve what you want? But what if you find you are not achieving what you hoped to?

Do you feel free of something (A.D.D.) that has defined you until now? Could it be that you can now give yourself permission to seek something that you’ve wanted all your life, but maybe didn’t think you could gain? And that very thought of freedom fills you with terror because you don’t ever want to feel you might lose it again.

Do you think you may be feeling miserable because maybe you let go of your hope, your dreams, and your visions because you don’t seem to be able to break through a wall of stagnation and impotence that has hounded you for too long—long enough that you’ve let go of your hope, sinking back into the pit of fear?

Well, consider yourself normal when bits and pieces of these considerations  weave in and out of your thoughts. Even as we are healing and growing and going beyond our A.D.D. we all tend to feel them from time to time. Don’t be fooled. Neither you nor I are going to lose out on what we hope for.

Fear, terror, feeling lost, and hoping again only to not reach the vivid dreams and visions that we are capable of having are only the growing pains of becoming our potential.

Reflections of viewing ourselves with a disorder and the subsequent  fears about ourself that lead to feelings of being lost or restricted certainly are only  more signs of stretching into our future filled with new, desired capability.

On the other hand, embracing our new feelings of freedom, giving energy to our hopes and dreams, though a bumpy road at times, cannot “not carry” us to our futures—and those futures are good, because they reflect who we are and have always been meant to be. 

The critical key is: Don’t even think of quitting.

Do not give into the pressures, blocks, and feelings of “not    making the grade.” These are only passing wisps of shadows in the night that will dissipate in the morning as the clouds part and the sun shines. 

Like the plants all around us. We will again begin to thrive. 

THE MESSAGE IS:

DO NOT QUIT. 

REST, 

   HAVE A CRY IF IT RELEASES FEAR AND SADNESS.

GET MAD AND STOMP YOUR FEET, IF YOU WISH.

THEN, GIVE YOURSELF A BIG BEAR HUG,

              GET TO WORK AGAIN BECOMING WHO REALLY ARE, THANKS TO YOUR   

                SPECIAL, WONDERFUL BRAINSTYLE CALLED, A.D.D. 

AND OWN THE SUCCESS THAT IS YOURS.

    Lynn, I know your audience is anticipating your next book release with great hope. I believe most of us with ADD think of our minds and selves as having tremendous potential. Those like me feel certain we are as capable as the next person is, and will even try harder then most when put to a task. We simply get stuck with how, where, and when to express ourselves. How do we convey what we sense, see, feel, envision, and conclude about the world in a cogent, concise, informative way? For if this bridge can be built, between one way of thinking and another, there is much mutual insight to be gained…the possibilities endless.
