Get to Know and Love Your ADHD Brain

Happy Birthday Queen Quirks

I (kind of) Know What I Want to Do with My Life

Thanks for stopping by to celebrate the beginning of Queen Quirks! You’re probably still wondering what this blog is all about, so I’d like to share a preview of where I was in my life just before I had that, “Aha! I (kind of) know what I want to do with my life” moment. ;D

Where I Was in my Life

Drifting…

That’s how I felt not more than a month ago. Just like a piece of driftwood being carried this way and that, I had no destination in mind. Of course, no one knows precisely where they’ll end up — life doesn’t work that way — But it got to the point where I felt I had been riding the waves for long enough. It was time to grab the oars and decide on my own direction. After all, I had recently become more aware of the growing void within, and it was starting to feel more permanent.

Until…

I was on the express train heading towards Shibuya, Tokyo’s sprawling city center. As I sat sandwiched between passengers, my mind worked strenuously to block out the distractions and check in with myself. I pondered how I could continue evolving, and questions like, “How can I better express myself?” and “What can I create that is true to who I am?” popped up. While I sat and visualized my dreams, the following realizations surfaced:

  • I’m invested in learning more about myself and working WITH the glorious brain I have, rather than against it.
  • I want to prove that I AM capable of the things my inner critic tells me I’m no good at (especially with writing and consistency). — You have to expect great things from yourself!
  • I want to show other women that they too can gain confidence in themselves and do the thing(s) they find true meaning in.
  • I want to pour myself into something that represents who I am.

Then it hit me!

I decided what better way to manifest these dreams than by starting a blog! One that represents me, a spunky and creative lady who navigates life with ADHD, and those like me.

Now I’ve finally set out on the right path, following a dream that I can’t NOT see through and release into the world. A burning sensation within that can’t be ignored. The passion was so intense, in fact, that sharing it out loud for the first time brought me to tears. Just ask my husband!

What I Want to do With my Life

First and foremost, creating this blog is a gift I give to myself. I look up to several ladies who have worked hard in creating platforms to educate and uplift other women with ADHD. Their attitudes and content have inspired me to want to become my own champion and hopefully become another voice for those who can relate to my challenges. After all, if you have ADHD, you know that moving through this world isn’t easy! But we undoubtedly deserve to be heard and celebrated, quirks and all.

Now let’s turn it over to you! Do you have a dream that has been brewing for some time? Maybe you still don’t know. And that’s OK.

Wherever you are, know that you are not alone in feeling overwhelmed or bewildered by the process. So let’s just take a deep breath and focus on the first step. I believe in you!

Wishing you a marvelous day,

Wendy
