Hi Everyone! A little about me and what to expect as I grow as a blogger. So….. I’m a 39 year old woman with two beautiful girlies, an awesome husband, a cat, a very large dog, a house that is just reaching the surface after being underwater for almost 10 years, a 4 hour commute and so much more. I also have ADHD which makes things a little complex as you can imagine. In the past two or three years I went from being a bystander that looked at my ADHD as something I (and my family) just had to deal with to owning my crazy brain and learning to love it.
I’m sure by now you are asking “what is your name?” Well, at the moment, you can call me Happy. I work in Corporate America and like many of us with a disorder of any kind, it can be really frightening to share that information. Getting this blog started is really important in starting that step of sharing. I’m just not ready to share this information with everyone especially when it could inadvertently put my job, and therefore my livelihood at risk.
Last thing to note: One of the biggest issues for people with ADHD is procrastination and motivation. I have blog posts going back a year that I just have in word documents because I wasn’t ready to make the leap to the internet. I wanted the branding to be perfect, I wanted to have the perfect blog built. Well, nothing is ever going to be perfect. Nothing I was coming up with was sitting well with me so I just had to start somewhere. And since my brain often things in snippets of colors or words or phrases, I just did some word association games to figure out what it was that I was trying to convey about myself. Hence the Happy Hyper Shiny. I have no idea if this will stick and I’m not even sure I like it. But it’s a start and that is the best place for me to be. As long as I’m moving forward I consider it a success.
So thanks for joining me on this journey. I am really excited to share it with you.
