Hi friends! Victoria here. If you’ve been following along, whether it’s through The Virtual Sidekick Co. or my former photography Instagram @victoriaisabeltate, then you know that not only have I been a creative entrepreneur for over 12 years, but I’m also a fellow ADHD’er. Having ADHD hasn’t been the easiest part of my life but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t been entertaining.
Some of my fondest memories are core because of the ADHD moments that occurred within. For example, my mom and I were painting her kitchen last year. We were grooving to the music and dancing around. Moments later, my mom starts to laugh as she goes to trim a wall and realizes only half of it was painted. There I was, trimming a corner on the opposite side of the room when I was suppose to be on roller duty. How I got there, no one knows. After a solid 10 minute of hysterical laughter, we managed to get the kitchen painted.
Another is when I went to wallpaper my kitchen. This was grand because I didn’t realize it until the next morning. I woke up to see half of a wall without wallpaper and 3/4 of the kitchen knobs were replaced but the dishes were. Where my brain went, again, no one knows.
With that being said, keeping focused on work is something I have gotten decently good at. Even if it doesn’t sound like it from my memories. It’s all because of things I have purchased, systems I have put in place in my environment, and of course… a little medication. While it’s common for most with ADHD to have 900 journals, I proudly own 2. Some have 22 colors of post-it notes thinking this color will create motivation to jot down thoughts quicker, I’ve been there, we shouldn’t go back.
PS: To be transparent, these are affiliate links. But I genuinely use these items DAILY. Not to mention, they helped with my ability to keep focused and centered, even on the most hectic of days.
So if you’re someone with ADHD and a business owner who struggles with balancing both, let’s be friends! Sharing ADHD memes, tips, and passions is my favorite.
