How long has it been since you’ve been as excited to start your day as a 6-year old on their birthday?
I am on my way to an international conference on ADHD in St. Louis, Missouri. Based on past experiences, I know that from the first moment I walk into the hotel where the conference is being held, it will be amazing. I will be energized. I will be invigorated. I will hardly be able to sleep. I will not be able to wait to start the day.
I will be surrounded by people and things that interest me, understand me, and support my passion. We are there to feed each other’s thirst for knowledge and camaraderie.
The conference attendees will be just like me, people who have or support those who are challenged by ADHD. We will have so much to talk about, so much to share. We know what makes each other tick. The days will fly by in a blur of activity and fellowship. I will be sorry to see each and every day end but know that the next morning I will awake with the excitement of a 6-year old on their birthday.
How can I take this newly-found excitement and manifest it in other areas of my life?
Embrace My Passion, Find My People
Most of us know what our passion is, that one thing that we just can’t do or get enough of. Those things that feed our souls. How do we get more out of it? How can it bring us even more joy?
Embrace Your Passion, Find Your People
If you like quilting; join a quilt club. If you love to work out; join a gym. If you love animals; volunteer at a shelter. Whatever it is that gives you joy, surround yourself with people who have the same passion and find a way to be a part of each other’s lives. You will feed off each other, you will educate each other, you will support each other, and you will take each other beyond where you could ever take yourself.
