Hearing voices...

What do you like to do on your day(s) off?  I feel most happy when I am creating... painting, collaging, journaling, drawing... My challenge is to not get too distracted by the voice in my head that tells me that I should be doing "more productive" things, like cleaning, organizing, calling people, searching the web, making lunches, pretty much anything but creating.  I think that my "productive voice" is made up of a combination of people and experiences...  The gooey shame slime that seems to seep out of my brain from living with Attention Deficit Disorder... Whether or not I want to label myself with the "disorder," I definitely have always found myself having to dance with this distractive force throughout my life... I don't consider it a completely negative thing... I think that it also harbors some of my creativity, spontaneity, patience, empathy, and silliness.  Those things are all important to me... So, I take the challenging with the easy!  I just need to be aware of my easily entertained and overly stimulated noggin, to be intentionally "productive" in the ways I need to be... So, I will forge ahead, to create today, on my day off!
