Join Kate, a real life ADHD mom, as she reveals her new motto. . .
If any of you adult ADHDers out there need a new inspirational, motivational motto, you can borrow mine. It may be a bit more unconventional than my old one, but gosh, does it work well. I used to use, I got this when I needed to reassure myself that I could get through the day.
Now my motto is, At least I've got my pants on.
Believe me, it works! It derives from a news story I read about where a teacher pulled up to work in a taxicab, got out in front of the school, but had forgotten her pants. Apparently, she had been out partying late the night before and, well made a valiant effort to get to work in the morning sans pants.
Now, when I have a bad morning and I show up to work, all in a big fumbling mess, I just say to myself, Well, at least I've got my pants on." And BAM. It's a win.
