Testing Post to Decide on Fonts

This is purely for educational purposes to see what font combinations are possibly the most aesthetically pleasing of the bunch of fonts that I’ve pulled together. Aaron is helping me narrow down my options so I can get moving on this website and blog. It’s a lot more work that I originally anticipated, but it’s also kind of exciting. I look forward to making this thing more realistic. One thing… Read More »Testing Post to Decide on Fonts

Digital Collage by Michelle Grayum titled "Stop, Please"

Division Is for Math Not Humanity

Michelle Grayum, “Stop, Please!,” 2021, digital collage, 6″x6″. The pain and division within our country (and the world) this past year has been brutal. For an empath, this is painful. Not figuratively, but literally painful. It freaking hurts that people have been up in arms and have been so divisive and divided over so many things. Every little concern is controversial or politicized from wearing masks or not wearing masks… Read More »Division Is for Math Not Humanity

2020: What an Awful Year

Michelle Grayum, Twenty Twenty: An Uncommon Year, 2020, digital collage 5×5″ It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted. And, I’m thinking it’s high time I get my voice back online. Not to compete with all the noise, but to contribute and serve as best I can to work on the side of hope, in — let’s be honest — a really messed up moment in the timeline of global… Read More »2020: What an Awful Year

Vulnerable Thoughts

“Vulnerability is not winning or losing; it’s having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome.”  — Brené Brown So, today I’ve decided to touch on the topic of vulnerability. Considering that I think one of the main reasons I and all of us hold back or fail to follow through on those big dreams we really want so much… might just be… Read More »Vulnerable Thoughts

The Simple Truth About SHOWING UP

Showing up is all about being present (physically, mentally, emotionally). It’s about being accountable and owning your impact. For me, my goal for Finding My Float, was to show up for myself in a way that I may have lacked and needed my whole life … and to keep showing up for all of you who can relate. For those of you kindred souls out there, I wanted to be… Read More »The Simple Truth About SHOWING UP

People With ADHD Often Look Younger Than They Are

A friend sent this image of the cast of The Mary Tyler Moore Show to me & the Hubs today. I was shocked that literally every single one of them (at the time of the photo) is younger than I am today!! Well, score one for ADHD! Keeping some of us not looking our age 🙂

Bring On The Happy

New Year, Please be kind. A whole lot of us are counting on you! Love, Imgy

Not Kansas

One for the Success Journal

Today’s 5 minutes: I’ve decided to publish my five minutes of blog writing per doctors orders (9:46pm-10:03pm) rather than having it build up to a single post after several days. Yes, I know that’s 17 minutes there. But, I think that was her very idea … to break the seal; get the ball rolling; create momentum. I mean after all, it’s Newton’s First Law of motion (that things in motion… Read More »One for the Success Journal

Surprise, MTHFR! (I’m a Mutant)

Believe it or not, I didn’t just cuss you. And even though my blog title is an attempt at being playful, I’m actually not kidding about being a mutant. In my last post, I mentioned recently receiving some additional news from the doctor. Well, here’s the curveball… I have an MTHFR mutation. Cue the ominous music …  I’m picturing the Jaws theme, but choose the audio track that works for… Read More »Surprise, MTHFR! (I’m a Mutant)

Easter Sunday and Doctor’s Orders

Well, as you might have noticed, my “mental health day” turned into a “mental health month and a half” as it’s been a hot minute since I’ve posted here on the blog. My Instagram feed is the only platform that’s gotten my attention lately. Prescription to Blog You should be hearing from me here with a little greater frequency now, though— because I literally have been prescribed per doctor’s orders… Read More »Easter Sunday and Doctor’s Orders

But First, a Mental Health Day

A Case of the Mondays Despite having a relatively wonderful weekend celebrating my sweet husband’s birthday, I found myself taking a “mental health day” today. I mean, I was telling him this morning, “It’s so weird, it’s like when you wake up with an unexpected stomach virus … except in this case, I woke up with a staggering case of anxiety.” Where To Begin? Even though I struggled with guilt… Read More »But First, a Mental Health Day

Laundry List of Resolutions

It’s hard to believe it’s February already. It would seem a little late to be talking about my laundry list of resolutions, but … well, my brain has been spinning on overdrive (since the year turned) trying to settle on hard fast resolutions for this year. I shared an image of a quote recently on my instagram account (@findingmyfloat) that sums it up: “I’ve decided my 2019 will start on… Read More »Laundry List of Resolutions

Endless shelves full of yellow rubber duckies to serve as a visual for an ADDer getting their ducks in a row.

Ducks in a Row

Getting your “ducks in a row” is an admirable goal for anyone these days, but I’d dare say it’s an even bigger challenge for the ADD’er to have one’s ducks in line. The idea behind the idiom is to have all one’s preparations done and arranged before beginning an activity or project. The phrase, as you might imagine, is likely derived from the allusion of a mother duck leading her… Read More »Ducks in a Row

10 Candles and a “Golden” Birthday

This weekend is our little guy’s “golden” birthday … that rare and exciting day when the date of his birth matches his age. On the 10th of June, he turns 10 years old. On this magical day of all days … we’re actually giving him a 24 hour celebration starting on his Birthday Eve. A few of his best buds are over for a sleepover to start things off. Then,… Read More »10 Candles and a “Golden” Birthday

It’s Like This

Today I want to share some thoughts with you that are pretty personal. They don’t wrap together neatly with a bow and can’t exactly be collected into a singular ADHD category, so I won’t share them all at once, or all today. But I will say, they’re all things weighing a little heavy on ADHD Me lately. So, in short, it’s like this … Missed a Post Last week, I missed… Read More »It’s Like This
