Quote of the Week

“Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle."

- Martin Luther King, Jr.


I love this quote, even as I fear the idea of ‘continuous struggle’ might put some of you off.  But here’s how I think about that idea:

  • Managing ADHD symptoms.  This is a life-long process…and not easy!
  • Nurturing your relationship.  This takes focus and persistence.  We are all busy – making the time to make sure our relationship is healthy takes a ton of effort.
  • Learning how to stay calm when life throws you a curve ball.  And, yes, when ADHD is part of the picture you’re likely to have more curve balls than many.

Being our best selves, and having a healthy relationship, takes constant work.  I, at least, think of myself as constantly working to change for the better.  How about you?
