For my community event organizing work.
See…don’t ever let anyone tell you that ALL of your ADHD “big ideas” are bad ones. Some of them are good. Some of them are BRILLIANT! Some of them are at least partially good and even better after you step away from them to analyze them a little more closely.
This particular idea has blossomed into an endeavor that feeds my soul…that makes me feel good about myself…and helps other people at the same time, and adds something really unique and special to my community.
Proof that there’s no reason that we ADHDers should apologize for our “random” ideas…that there’s value in learning to focus and asses and develop them…and really, you know what? People with perfectly normal brains have crappy ideas every day! People with normal brains also sometimes miss the value in idea that an ADHDer will find novel, intriguing and worth investing time in.
ADHD may not be a gift, but it does have plusses sometimes as well as minuses. I’m working to maximize the benefits of the plusses 🙂 And today, my state community recognized me for doing just that…wicked bonus…!
