Today I am happy to announce I have released a new book titled “Writer’s Doubt.”
Over the years, since I started this blog in 2007 and have published 10 books, some free and some available on Amazon, I have been asked countless times how I write so much even though I have ADHD.
To be honest my biggest struggle with writing hasn’t so much been my ADHD symptoms (if anything writing helps my symptoms), but rather, self-doubt. Granted, I probably suffered from more doubt than the average, normal person because I grew up with undiagnosed ADHD, but ultimately, doubt has been my primary neme(...)

At least for me, that becomes tedious and boring.
When I was in class or reading a book, the longer and more detailed the explanations were, the more lost and confused I became.

There are days when we all wish we could be happier and we dream of a time in the future when things will work out, when we can be who we’ve always wanted to be, but the reality is quite different.
**See below about entering drawings for this book!**
The reality is we all must find and use ways to live life intentionally and create our own happiness. If we wait for someone else to create it for us, or circumstances to be just right, we may be waiting the rest of our lives.
You don’t have to wait.
In my new book Happy Every Day – Simple, Effective Ways to Better Days I present 26(...)

I am absolutely horrible at organizing photo albums, so it should come to you as no surprise that these pictures are in no particular order.
Feel free to share this post or individual pictures.
I have uploaded the pictures to Pinterest here and created a facebook group for anyone to share ADHD in pictures, if you’d like to join.
If you’d like to pin an individual picture, hover your mouse over the picture and click on the “Pin it” image that will show up in the top right corner of the picture.
Talk about hyper focusing, I have spent countless hours creating these ph(...)
