Painted Skies and ADHD Optimism

Blue skies ADHD Getnutmegged

“…because blue skies should always be acknowledged.” – Enough said.  (Okay, not really because I have a little more to say.)

I mean, we’re all going to have bad days (ADHD or not).  There’s no getting away from that.  But, the trick is…to keep hanging on for the good days.  They’ll come…they always do.

The thing about ADHDers, though, is that, for as much as we struggle, we tend to have this underlying optimism.  Maybe it’s just that we’ve forgotten about the bad by the time something good comes along, so we can embrace the good easier than most.  But I don’t really think that’s it.  I think that our ADHD struggles, as with most struggles in life, have made us thankful for those moments when the sun is shining and things are good.

To be clear, I didn’t exactly have the best day today or anything.  In fact, I didn’t like it much at all.  But the sky kind of speaks to me when it’s all painted and awesome like this and I’m a little obsessed with attempting to capture it in all its glory.  Awesome skies do have a knack for cheering me up, even if only briefly.  Most of the time, I feel called to share the pictures, too.  Like, somehow, if the painted sky is making me happy in the moment, maybe it’ll work for somebody else out there who might need it, too.

So, guys, after last night’s wicked long blog entry, I leave you with the first (of likely many) sky pictures.  I hope you’ll find some inspiration or hope…or maybe just appreciate that there are a lot of really good blues in the shot.
