An ADHD Superpower: The way we connect ideas

Listen to this post ...
One of the neater things about a brain with ADHD is the unique way it connects ideas.
 
We’re sometimes criticized for being off topic or too “random” when a piece of information makes us think of something completely different than everyone else. But here’s what’s missed.
 
It’s the unique way an ADHD brain connects things that lies at the heart of its gifts.
 
This is where the creative, outside the box thinking is honed. By learning to ride the wave of how your mind makes connections between ideas.
 
In having to take detours around gaps in your executive functions, your brain learns to solve problems in ways other brains don’t have to.
 
BUT! When you’ve been overly criticized for this it can create a lot of resistance toward this part of yourself.
 
I encourage you to take the power back and let your mind play. You’ll be amazed at the creativity you possess.
