Today I Love Contingencies

Sunny streets

Today I love contingencies that are meant to make things run smoothly when there are big changes coming. I love that I’m looking for ways to maintain all my responsibilities while I go on holidays. I love that this column is one of the things I feel more determined to keep current. I love that I am really going on an adventure and I am amazed at how calm I am in my heart in the presence of this newness and yet how excited I am in my mind, when I’m usually stoic about big things. I love that this is new territory for me. I love that I treat my life like every day is new territory so I’m in the perfect mental and emotional condition for this. I love that the plan is to find out lots before we go and then find out even more when we get there. I love that I’m going to treat this trip like a high school project, excuse me while I go study everything I can about where I’m going and what I should do there. I love that I just made myself laugh, I was never that organized in high school, so now I’m thinking that school is wasted on youth, I should be going back there now.

Today I love that the day is such a mixture of weather components, the air isn’t freezing yet, but there’s enough humidity in it to feel cold, the wind is from the north and the jet stream is toying with the clouds and the clouds range from wispy to thick and from white billows to dark, heavy wads of precipitation that you just know is going to fall somewhere and the sun seems to be able to find small spaces in those clouds to pierce and remind us that it is there doing what it can for us. I love how the weather never lets me down and is always entertaining. I love that I live in a place where the weather has such a wonderful spectrum of moods.

I love that the sun just started shining on main street in the town where my Wednesday office is. I love that my typo adventures continue and that three different times in writing this post I typed “lover” instead of “love” and that is just fine with me because I am a lover of so many things.

Today I love drinking coffee here in my Wednesday office while the sun shines intermittently and the weather winds its wondrous way through all its sunny and cloudy moods.

Today I Love Contingencies

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.
