It may seem odd that I’m posting a sunrise photo at night. Although, if I hadn’t called myself out, you probably would have figured it for a sunset photo instead. The fact that it’s a sunrise in the photo is kind of the point (even if it weren’t, I’m ridiculously honest, so I probably still would have told you).
See, guys, we all have bad days. Some are worse than others and sometimes we can’t even pinpoint why.
I’m a little lost at the moment and I’m trying to hold myself accountable by proclaiming my optimism through this photo. While ADHDers are known for missing some of the in-your-face details, we often get to see things that others simply gloss over…especially in nature.
Nature is synonymous with salvation (or at least serenity) for a lot of people with ADHD. It’s that way for me at least. Nature can bring you joy, even on your worst day. It can also open your eyes to a wisdom you had forgotten…or had never been privy to before. I think that’s part of why recreational therapy is so successful for ADHDers.
Every day is a new day, my friends. That’s a lesson nature has taught me countless times. It is my hope that this simple sunrise photo will help you see both the wisdom and beauty in that truth.
No bad day can last forever, even if it sometimes seems that way. We are given a fresh start with each rising sun and thus, a chance to embrace a new perspective.
The answers don’t always come when we want them to. Maybe that’s nature’s way of letting us know we’re not really in control. Regardless, answers come when they’re supposed to and only if they’re supposed to. There are certain questions we’ll never know the answers to, but hopefully we can learn to let go and let life lead the way.
You’re never as lost as you feel. And every morning you’re given the chance to find your way.
We must all be open to trying again. We must all be open to seeing beauty where others may not even look. We must all be open to hope….
