Today I Love Feeling Well Rested

Welcome to the café

Today I love feeling well rested after a good night’s sleep. I love that I have a a seemingly overwhelming amount of things to do ahead of me, but that I am as yet not overwhelmed. I love that I am prepared for that to happen, but hopeful that it won’t. I love that for some strange reason I have a calm, wait and see attitude toward how I’ll be feeling about this whole adventure. I love that as I wrote those last few lines the sun came out for a few seconds and lit up my keyboard. How glorious. I love that a million things that need to be done are popping into my head and yet there seems to be no urgency to any of them yet. I know that I need to get a lot of things done and that this is the busiest time of year to be trying to do all this stuff, but for now I’m calm. I love that friends are already telling me to “just call” when I need them. Thank you all.

Today I love that the coffee grinder went cray-cray and the K-Cup didn’t engage properly and so it made a mess on the counter that looked rather new-age-modern artish. It looked like an ad for a café so I grabbed my camera and captured it for here. I love that even when there’s a mess, I still would rather find joy and love than be grumbling and complaining. Good thing too, ’cause I’m a kind of travelling mess. I love that I know everything will get cleaned up eventually, and I laugh when I realize that that’s true, but it won’t all happen at the same time so there will always be some mess somewhere to say that I am here, or I was.

Today I love that my mind is churning with possibilities for my life after the house sale closes. I love that the present is never the way I thought it would be when it was the future. I love that I still roll with the punches, that’s my role in life, that’s my life, take it as it comes and find the joy. I love that I have an opportunity to purge lots of stuff and an obligation to lighten my load because I’ve been carrying a lot of heavy things in my heart for more than half a decade.

Today I love coffee in the kitchen with the mod café art by the grinder. Cool.

Today I Love Feeling Well Rested

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.
