Today I Love Dichotomies

cloudy skies, grey light
Moody day

Today I love dichotomies, like that I love when the weather is sunny and warm like yesterday’s was, but I love today’s weather because there is a chance of snow and we need that on the ground so badly to hold in the moisture. I love how I can love the idyllic days of good and peaceful weather, but I also love the rampant power of the days of storms and thunder and lightning. I love that I ordered a set of four Bluetooth trackers to keep track of keys and phones and wallets and things of that nature that go missing easily, but that the shipping company has no tracking for my delivery even though the seller says they’ll be here today. I love that I love being on the road for adventures, yet I love getting home and sleeping the sleep of the exhausted. I love how even on a grey and cold morning I can wake up alive and refreshed and be joyously ready for life and everything it has to offer, be anxious to get started with it, I love that I demand the best of every day and the days deliver. I love that I am so demanding of my life.

Today I love that the room we are refinishing will be primed by the end of the day and by tomorrow the paint will be going on. I love that there are big cottage plans this weekend. I love that I can work almost anywhere thanks to my crazy portable WiFi hub thingy that just works where ever I plunk it down and doesn’t even need to be plugged in so long as it has a good charge on it. I love how the world has become more connected, love how people use that to make friends and keep friends and I even love that they find ways of disconnecting when they need a break.

Today I love hanging out with kids that think I’m funny. I love when they are surprised that I’m not ticklish. I love that I’ve never met a child who wasn’t ticklish. I love that everywhere I went yesterday there was fish to eat, ’cause I love fish. I love that lately I’ve had a hankering for fish and chips, and that is going to have to happen in the near future just because. I love that there is beef stew for lunch.

Today I love sipping coffee in the chilly, pale grey light of a day of clouds and potential snow.

Today I Love Dichotomies

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.
