Helping the ADHD Parent: The gift of Awareness

What does it mean to be aware?  It involves a conscious effort to be focused, and to pay attention to the smallest of details.  Being aware, or mindful, means that we become aware of every nuance of thought, feeling, sensation, reaction and experience.   It’s can be a very powerful place to be, but most of us don’t allow ourselves to drink in the essence and simplicity of simply being in the moment.  This is because we have to make a conscious effort and choice to stop...

STOP Being So Hard On Yourself!

How often are you your own worst enemy? How many times do you talk yourself down whenever you’re learning new things or made a mistake? You tell yourself you’re not smart enough, you don’t have what it takes, you’re too shy, slow, clumsy, fat, scared or a host of other words.

Mostly I’m thankful to Cathy Dick, for helping me a lot with previous decision making and daily planning. She has helped me put into practice a mind-set to be something that I wish to accomplish by the end of each day to the end of the year– focus on that, and make sure I do things in terms of preparing myself mentally and physically before I start.  She has a lot of great resources that she shares freely too.  You can trust her to do what she says she’ll do.

What a huge difference Cathy made in my office at work!  She helped me organize the mountains of paperwork and chaos and now it looks great!  I have a system that I know will work for me because she made sure that things were organized by how I use them…everything in its place!  I value Cathy’s creativity, integrity, originality and helpfulness in all the organizing/time management projects she does.  Next I plan to take her Time Strategies program so I can get my business calendar, appointments and desk organized.  Can’t wait!!
