E135: Discounting Disability and Dismissing Disadvantages: Why We Don't All Have the Same 24 Hours in a Day
Manage episode 322947464 series 2913393
True or false: we all have the same 24 hours in a day…?
If you said FALSE, you're 100% right, mama.
Sure, we have 24 physical hours. But depending on our abilities, circumstances and responsibilities…
Those hours look VERY different.
To a carefree, neurotypical teenaged boy, an hour might feel like eternity. He can hang out with friends, do some homework, watch a show, eat some food.
To a work-at-home mama of 3 with ADHD, dinner on the stove, laundry to fold, an appointment she's late for, keys she can't find (again) and a puppy that needs house training…
Not so much.
A 500lb barbell is the same weight to an Olympic weightlifting champion as it is to me!
But he and I have a unique set of skills and abilities that mean he can lift it, while I just look at it and laugh.
Time is the same way, friend. It's measured the same. But we are not all equipped equally in how we spend it.
You’re putting in double the effort to get half the output than other people can. I see you.
This week's episode of Motherhood in ADHD is your permission slip to STOP beating yourself up for being 'bad with time’ and not ‘hustling’ your way to success.
Give it a listen and discover why you may have a different 24 hours than 'other moms.'
