Today I Love Determination

Potential determination

Today I love determination and the distance it can cover when things need to be done and life needs to be dealt with. I love that I am determined to get lots accomplished today and I’m determined to get through this day in positive spirits. I love that I have challenged myself to do more than I normally would in one day, but I’m determined to get all of it done. I love that I’ve also set myself a challenge for the next six days and I’m determined to see that through as well. I love making positive things happen in my life and in others’ lives when I can. I love seeing other people being determined to succeed also. I love that determination often brings people to places that they hoped to get to in their lives.

Today I love bright days that shine when they are needed. I love that the weather will cheer me when I am looking for comfort no matter what it is like out. I love that I love weather, any kind of weather. I love that just outside my window is a new chance at life for two new citizens of the world. Talk about determination. I love that it was only by chance that I discovered the nest, and so far I’ve been lucky in that I have not managed to upset the mother when I went to take a quick look inside it with my camera in hand. I love that hummingbirds have always found my yard to be a good neighbourhood to hang out in, but I especially love that before I leave this house, I get to watch this happen.

Today I love that my day will be diverse and full. Work in my basement continues. Going to pick up boxes for packing and delivering yard waste to the compost site is all on the schedule. I am hoping to squeeze in music practice tonight and I will love that if it happens, but I will practice whether the band can make it or not. I love that I am in the depths of Summer’s spell and that she still has a lure that calls me out to see things and go places like the beach yesterday and lunch with an old and dear friend.

Today I love coffee in the sunlight, fuelling up for a busy day, hoping for the best, determined to make it happen.


Today I Love Determination

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 on the traditional lands of the Chippewas of Nawash in an area where my family history stretches back 6 or 7 generations and my First Nations friend's families go back hundreds of 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 am a freelance writer and I write two blogs here at Psych Central, one about living with 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.
