I felt totally lost. So what did I do? What any other woman with ADD does who feels inept in the kitchen: I walked around in circles, pretending to be helpful while studying the magic of these women.
Ok, so where am I going with all this?
As I was studying these moms, I also studied myself. I made a choice: I could feel like a total dolt, kicking myself for being an incapable kitchen flunky.
Or, I could remind myself that I had other talents and that it was ok that being a queen chef was not one of them. As I found myself slipping into that negative mindset, I visualized myself doing things that most likely, these women didn’t or couldn’t do. I pictured myself in my art studio, painting wonderful pictures. I envisioned myself in my music studio, laying the bass tracks to a song I’d been working on.
What about you? When you feel that ADD inadequacy creeping in, how do you pull yourself out of it?
