Come share success with us! A place to brag and celebrate our accomplishments, big or little. Appreciating ourselves and each other is what this is about!
We want you here now~

Want to get and give some of the good stuff? I want to have a place here where we celebrate ourselves- talk about something good, something you did that you're proud of. We spend so much time chasing our tails instead of enjoying the full length of our stride. Let's shift our focus away from problem solving for a little while and enjoy our gifts. What's your passion? What are your convictions, accomplishments? What do you appreciate in yourself and your world?
My idea is so start a group with bragging rights. Bragging about ourselves, no holds barred. (Well, it should be based on something actually real.)
Did you open the door for someone when your arms were full of stuff/ kids? Remember to ask your neighbor about their sick cat? Did you get an award at work? Stop at a yellow light for the first time? Resist the urge to yell at someone (or thing !) ? Nothing about our kids or partners, just ourselves.
Why? Because we need support. We need fun, and encouragement, compliments, appreciation. We all spend time looking at our issues and trying to solve them and talking about each other's issues and possible solutions.
This can be therapeutic, but too much in our ADHD lives is about the negative. I don't know about you but I get overwhelmed with all the losses, and looking at all the problems that need to be solved sometimes.
In the middle of all this we all have areas of competence, though, and we ignore those.
What I'm talking about is not denial, but a full look at the whole of ourselves. I'd like to get some gals who will join with me and commit (in an ADHD way) to checking in at least once a week to brag and compliment. I think shifting our focus can be energizing, and giving each other support can be affirming.
