The Art of ADD Manifesto Video
I challenge you to not be impacted by this video. The Art of ADD Manifesto outlines, in a short two and a half minutes, 20 – 30 truths about people with ADD / ADHD. I say 20 – 30 truths instead of giving an exact number because it depends on how you group them…but the overall point is that the video is pretty amazing.
A Note for Fellow ADHDers
If you have ADHD, make sure you count yourself as part of the “we” as you watch the video. The Art of ADD Manifesto puts such a positive spin on the ADD / ADHD mind that you’re gonna find it hard to walk away without feeling at least a little rejuvenated and stoked about being you. Focus on the good, my friends. It’s quite empowering, if I do say so myself.
A Note for Non ADHDers
Take to heart everything that the Art of ADD Manifesto says. Really think about it…and know that, despite the stigma, like I’ve been screaming, those of us with ADHD are pretty awesome…if you’ll just let us be ourselves.
More to Come
This Art of ADD Manifesto video couldn’t be more on target to where I am at the moment. I could write a post on each of the 20 – 30 truths and my personal reaction to each of them, but I really want you guys to experience it for yourselves first. That said, if things go as I hope they will, I’ll have a lot more to say about this video and the things going on in my life very soon.
Okay, okay, my top ADHD truths (in this moment):
“We are not broken. We are whole.”
“We are distracted by all the possibilities and connections we see…the ones others miss.”
“Our thoughts and impulses can lead to wonderful things.”
“We act on impulses most people secretly wish they could.”
“We are the visionaries, dreamers, explorers and creators.”
“We get there eventually.”
But yeah…more on all of that later, guys! Sit back and enjoy this refreshing and positive spin on the gift you have been given with your ADHD!
