Today I Love People Who Are Joyous

Equinox draws closerToday I love people who are joyous and that they are all saying that today they love as well with their behavior. I love that often you cannot see the joy in their expression because they are concentrating on the thing that they love so much, but you can see it in the care they take and the passion that overflows their actions. I love that sometimes even the concentration and the passion isn’t enough and the joy does actually show on their faces. I love that joy is love.

Today I love that yesterday was such a whirlwind of important Saturday things. From breakfast and produce shopping at the Owen Sound Farmers’ Market through the Bach Cello Suites that were part of the Sweetwater Music Festival, on past three one act plays at the Roxy Theatre downtown, to ending the day watching the Jessica Stuart Few at the Avalon Jazz Lounge & Patio, that Saturday was simply a marathon of good things. And through it all there were people to go with and people to meet here and there and smiling faces everywhere.

Today I love this brilliant sunny morning and the still, cool air. There is a chill out there that suggests that summer is on its way out and that is certainly likely, the equinox is only three days away. I love the seasons rolling by, slow enough that they seem almost motionless on any given day, but fast enough that we can remember how things go and recognize similarities from one season to the next. I love the comfort that I get from that familiarity.

Today I love coffee. The warmth of its effect on my mind is such a familiar morning start. I love how it goes well with, or before, or after so many things. It’s the way to get ready for some activities, part of some activities, and the way we celebrate some activities.

Kelly Babcock

I was born in the city of Toronto in 1959, but moved when I was in my fourth year of life. I was raised and educated in a rural setting, growing up in a manner I like to refer to as free range. I live in an area where my family history stretches back 6 or more generations. I was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 50 and have been both struggling with the new reality and using my discoveries to make my life better. I write two blogs here at Psych Central, one about having ADHD and one that is a daily positive affirmation that acts as an example of finding the good in as much of my life as I possibly can.
