On this episode, I go through some verbal processing about goals, failure, and reframing failure. These seem to be recurring themes for me this year, so why not keep processing it? I hope this is helpful for anyone who listens, too! - - -Visit our website: https://adhddiversified.caEmail me: mj@adhdDiversified.caJoin MJ and the rest of the ADHD reWired Podcast Family for a live Q&A every second Tuesday of the month!

3 (More) Things

I'm restarting the 3-Wins-per-Day challenge -- but with an addition! Did you join me earlier this year for this challenge? Did you try this challenge but fell off the wagon? Did you intent to try out this challenge but then forgot about it? Then join me - again - - to write down three wins per day and three things you're thankful for or grateful for every day - - starting from October 17th (or the day you happen to be listening to this) until the end of 2022! Episode...
One of the "lovely" traits of ADHD is that we tend to be good at being consistently inconsistent. (In this case, I'll speak for myself.) We have our ups and downs, life can be predictably unpredictable, and getting stuck in a slump seems to be one of my specialties. In this episode, I hope you are reminded that no matter where you are or what you're doing, whether you're feeling unmotivated, directionless, or drained, whatever it is you're feeling - it doesn't make you weak.Thanks...
Remembering My Wins

Remembering My Wins

2022-07-2514:49

Over a month ago, I proposed a challenge: From May 27th until June 30th, 2022, I was going to journal and list three wins every single day. Did I manage to write three wins every day? Did you join me in this challenge? In this episode, I reflect on the lessons learned behind attempting this challenge, my emotional state working through this while I was sick, and why I believe writing down a win every once in a while is useful. This exercise was inspired by one of...
Wrestling Resting

Wrestling Resting

2022-07-2221:05

I'm finally getting momentum with my podcast again and am mostly recovered from being sick. On this episode, I address the guilt I've felt when resting or engaging in self-care, the rejection of self, and how that mindset was adopted.If you need to get some rest or start engaging in more self-care activities, I hope this episode inspires you to do that. Self-care is not selfish, and your self-care matters! - - -Visit our website: https://adhddiversified.caEmail me...
Thoughts on Learning

Thoughts on Learning

2022-07-1115:40

We all have different ways of learning and have all taken different paths to get to where we are today. In our uniqueness, we've developed different skills and talents, we've acquired different tools and have our own areas of genius and knowledge. I share my thoughts about our unique ways of learning, our unique ways of applying ourselves, and why the tools we use (and how we utilize them) may not be useful for everyone. - - -Visit our website: https://adhddiversified.caEmail me: mj@adh...
Not Struggling Alone

Not Struggling Alone

2022-06-2317:05

First it was allergies. Then, I got sick. So I didn't record anything for a while. Even though I was still sick at the time of this recording and posting, I decided to talk about it. In this episode, I talk about the emotions, old stories, and struggles that came up for me when I was at my sickest, then I decided to talk about how I'm continuing to make it through and why I keep going.

Historically, I've been quick to look at my failures instead of acknowledging my successes. For me, my ADHD has had me fall down a lot, and I sometimes (ok - often) forget that I've gotten back up more times I've tumbled over. I also find it difficult accepting others' acknowledgements of the things I've achieved because my beliefs and feelings around personal success and failure used to be rooted in binary thinking. Even though it's getting easier now, it's still difficult ...
I used to not believe in community because I'd been a part of communities where I felt more silenced than empowered. In this episode, I touch on the importance of community and the impact of being in the right community has had on me.

Representation Matters

Representation Matters

2022-05-1314:05

It's the 2nd week of may, which means we're continuing with Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month in The U.S. and Asian Heritage Month in Canada! In this episode, I talk about what representation means to me within the sphere of mental health, within the Asian community, in the ADHD community, and why it's important that under-represented communities need to be heard. & I'm calling all my Asian friends with ADHD from around the world - - let's talk!

Working Through Shame

Working Through Shame

2022-04-2916:46

If you feel shame when you want to take some time for yourself, then you're not alone. As I've experimented with adding journaling to my routine over the past two weeks, I also uncover the shame I feel when I take pause to write. In my mind, it "shouldn't" be a big deal, so why exactly is it I carry shame around this one simple self-care routine?If you listened to my episode about how Pausing is Hard and decided to add journaling to your routine, let me know how it's going. ...
Rebuilding Belief

Rebuilding Belief

2022-04-2224:51

It's amazing how one phrase or one sentence can have an impact on the trajectory of a person's life. In this episode, I share a story about an experience at school where I allowed that experience to shape the person I became, other experiences that led me to belief I was worth being treated poorly by others, and why I refuse to call it quits. - - -Visit our website: https://adhddiversified.caJoin MJ and the rest of the ADHD reWired Podcast Family for a live Q&A every second Tue...
Pausing is Hard

Pausing is Hard

2022-04-1416:00

I'm continuing the practice of hitting record and "rambling on" without a plan or any talking points. In this episode, I'm committing to practicing a way to pause, before and after a task. If you want to join me to do this every day for the next two weeks, or if you're listening to this down the road and want to give it a shot, let me know how it goes and how it went!

You know when you do that thing where you say you'll do it tomorrow, then a week goes by, then a few weeks, then over 3 months?That's what's happened here. This is what happened when I became buried in my old beliefs and started giving in to my old stories and my limiting self-talk. - - -Visit our website: https://adhddiversified.caJoin MJ and the rest of the ADHD reWired Podcast Family for a live Q&A every second Tuesday of the month!

It's been a hot minute (but more like a few months) since I've published anything. As it turns out, learner-mode can really wear a person out! I know my last Dear ADHD was only 2 episodes ago, but the time that's passed between them has been a lot longer than I'd expected. Time flies when you have ADHD, I suppose!Anyway, this is the last letter and last episode of the year. Here's hoping for a sustained reboot in 2022. Thank you to everyone who sent me messages, emails, and everyone who'...
Trigger Warning: Disordered eating and body image. What was meant to be a practice of hitting "record" turned into something I wanted to share, recorded on August 25th. If this format is something you'd be more interested in, go ahead and reach out to me on Facebook or Instagram! Both pages are still under construction, but I borked my website so... yeah. Instagram or Facebook will have to do for now!---📌 If you or anyone you know is going through or trying to navigate disordered eating, plea...

Dear ADHD...

In the ADHD reWired Coaching and Accountability Groups, we do an exercise called Dear ADHD. I thought I'd share this one with everyone since I've really been stuck in a rut for weeks. Will Curb of Hacking Your ADHD also reads one of his Dear ADHD letters on his show! - - -Visit our website: https://adhddiversified.caJoin MJ and the rest of the ADHD reWired Podcast Family for a live Q&A every second Tuesday of the month!

In this episode, I reflect on my experiences with living up to the potential others saw me growing up, versus the potential I saw for myself. The potential - or the dreams, hopes, goals, and aspirations we have - don't always align with the gifts and talents we already possess, or the talents others see in us. Whichever road we decide to take is 100% up to us. But our ADHD sure does make it tough to choose one route sometimes. Even though I want to do all the things, I can't realistically do ...

Great Job and thank you for taking the time to express your feelings. The tone and voice of your first podcast found me in a down moment and it help me release my own junk. It helped me better understand my own self and loved ones. Thank you for sharing to heal.
