“Life seems like an endless parade of obstacles.”

“ADHD is not about knowing what to do,
but about doing what one knows.”
On Children – by Kahlil Gibran
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts, for they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and bends you with might that the arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness.
“It’s better to be the informer than the enforcer.”
–Larry, parent of a seven year old
If you follow every dream,
you might get lost.
– Neil Young, “The Painter”
“A mistake can be a success…
if you learn from it.”
