ADD meets why it even matters

I’ve been writing on Tuesdays about how I cope with ADD without meds.

As much as I enjoy the order (and the smile on George’s face when he comes through the door) I still ask myself every single day why bother making the same bed (again) when there are so many fun projects to tackle.

Just now, the postman delivered a package. It’s a new system of drafting custom made sewing patterns and I can’t wait to dig into it. If I did it first, I’d be even more energized right?

Over the years, I’ve learned it’s like spending dollars in YNAB that turn my category red. Don’t ask me why but those purchases don’t work out.

The days we came home to a mess were days that I felt like we didn’t have as much. It didn’t matter that we had just been shopping. I’d walk in the door and that feeling would settle in. As I learned to do better (and I say “I” because I’m the family slob) I felt better too. I feel a sense of pride coming in when everything is in its place and I’m on top of my daily and weekly routines. This has nothing to do with our bank balance and the assets we own. It has everything to do with how I choose to spend my time.

When I choose to use it by taking my first minutes to tidy up and knock out the routine chores, I seem to end up with more time. I’m working hard to remind myself that this pays off.

Speaking of paying off, we came in under budget on fuel for the week.
