Top Ten Reasons You Need To Understand Your Rainforest (Gifted) Mind–The Musical

Watch this 22 minute song fest and let me know what you think. (Apologies for the long-ish intro for those of you who already know all that about me. The musical begins at about 3.15 minutes. Relax and enjoy.
It is a little clunky or a lot clunky but I never said I was a perfectionist! )
Important Note: October is GiftedTalentedNeurodiverse Awareness month. The G Word Film is sponsoring cool free events. October 24-28.

    LOVE this, Paula! Thank you for being you and for creating this for us.
    PS: sharing a playlist of all those tracks in case anyone else wants a go-to audio reminder (plus a bonus track which is my current favourite motto)

    What a great musical! The Top 10 list musical is such a clever way to express the need for understanding and believing in yourself and your Rainforest Mind. Thank you! (Do you have a written list of these reasons? Would be nice to have on my (unpainted) walls as a reminder.)

      Thanks for watching, Carol. I do have a written list. Perhaps I will put it together into another post and then link to the musical. Would that be helpful?

    Oh Paula, you are so fun! And you get me! So nice to have someone role all my faults into a positive package, with songs no less. Thank you!

    How fun! Thank you!
    I think when people say “You think you’re so smart,” what they mean is that THEY think we’re smart, and they are jealous and intimidated. People have no problem with someone being a better singer or athlete then them. Those people are celebrated. But being a better thinker is absolutely not allowed!

    Thanks for the laugh, and for the musical inspiration!
