Feedback-The Key

Last night, I bought a tennis racquet fly swatter for taking care of the fruit fly menace.If you have used this kind of fly swatter you would know that every time you swat a fly there is a crackling sound.

I found myself being quite effective in killing the fruit flies using the new swatter.

Moreover I earned some ‘adulation’ from my family members on successfully restoring Hygiene.

One insight I got from this activity was that I was actually getting a kick of doing this…

Forgiveness

It is said that to err is human and to forgive is divine. The question is whom do we forgive.



I have realized that when we find that someone has faltered somewhere, we unconsciously become a part of that act by mentally blaming that person and getting caught in the trap of pointing fingers, albeit not doing so literally.

Attitude

 

Warning - Intimate Material, Viewer Discretion Advised

We with ADD ADHD tend to say, and do, inappropriate things. So this material may be inappropriate, but it is such a good illustration of the point about attitude that I can't refrain from sharing it.

Attitude

The new age theory is that we create our own reality. This is an example.

Since I closed my practice I don't take showers as often.  I don't think…

ADD ADHD and Expectations

What Can I Expect?

With ADD ADHD we have so many things we're interested in and it's hard to say no to any of them.  It's hard to say no to ourselves.

My daily routine includes brushing my teeth, quiet time, and exercise.  I was missing the quiet time occasionally but then my spiritual adviser told me it was "non-negotiable." I've used "non-negotiable" as my motto ever since and rarely miss a day.

I actually can't exercise every day either, but by…
