Today I Love Peace Of Soul

dust of snow on deck
Morning, nowhere near Scarborough

Today I love peace of soul, the thing that happens when peace of mind meets acceptance of life’s realities. I love when people find it, but I love even more when people seek it in a calm and steady way. I love finding myself on the road to that peace more and more these days. I love that this world offers each of us the chance to seek that out, and though there are people and situations that stand in our way I love that I have learned to calmly seek the path that avoids those obstacles, that I have realized there is no love to be found in railing against the immovable, that it is best to let the immovable be and find the route that goes around it. That being said, I love when I can see that something presenting itself as immovable has a broken link in its chains and I can exploit that and move it to where it can be both immovable and at peace and not hinder my search for peace any longer. I love that there is a peacefulness to searching for peace, a sort of reward for trying. I love how much hope there is in peace and the search for it.

Today I love that choir practice went so very well last night. I love that we started working on one of the two songs I really hoped we’d get to do and it was great. I love that the other song I was really hoping for is also on our show list. I love that the rest of the songs are all great except one. I love that I’m going to sing that one like I love it too, because I happen to know a secret, If you sing it like you love it, you end up loving it.

Today I love the still, cold air and the dusting of snow and I love that the words “Scarborough Winter” popped into my head when I was cleaning off the car. I love that I have only seen winter in Scarborough on a few occasions and every time it was like this morning’s weather here. I love cold cereal on my hot oatmeal just to add to the breakfast experience. I love that there is chocolate in the house and I keep forgetting about it and discovering it and thinking, “Oh yeah, ha. We have chocolate. Zang!” I love that my next big adventure is getting closer with each passing day and that I’m slowly gathering together all the things I’ll need for it. I love that I have to pick up a few things this week in order to be completely ready. I love that in seven days I’ll be in launch mode for this whole exciting thing.

Today I love drinking coffee on this frosty, crisp, cold and sweet Scarborough Morning.

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.
