Today I Love Beginnings

first light of day
Bright new beginning

Today I love beginnings, beginnings of days, beginnings of friendships, beginnings of new adventures and projects, tiny things like a new book to read, or and vast and massive life changes like where to live and with whom. I love when I am too busy to get the mail and then when I do finally pick it up the box is jammed full and there’s all kinds of stuff in there. I love when people send me notes and things, and even though that didn’t happen today, (hint hint) I’ll still love it the next time it happens. I love walking in the sunshine and driving in it also. I love that the weather seems to be coasting toward a warm spell so some of this snow might melt now. I love that I’m thinking about barbecuing again and I might do that as early as next week. I love that I spent another few hours on the road today and every day that I do that gets me a day closer to being done that for now. I love how, even though I’ve been driving over three hundred miles a day, when I’m not on the road I still think I am looking forward to driving.

Today I love that there are still some leftovers in the fridge and we haven’t gone hungry yet. I love that Kraft Dinner is my go to meal when there’s nothing to eat but I want comfort food and I love that I haven’t had to resort to that yet, though I must admit I’d love it if I did have to resort to that. 😉 I love that the plan is to go out for supper tonight and have something good and nourishing to eat at a restaurant run by people we know who cook food that is good tasting, adventurous in its own way, and healthy. I love good tasting, adventurous, and healthy.

Today I love determination and strength. I love resilient people who will not give in. I love folks who know what is right for them and do not falter nor deflect from their chosen course. I love that I know so many of those people and that I like to think of myself as one of them. I love that in the last little while I have made many choices for adventure and a full life and I have found them all to be exactly right for me, so I’m going to continue in this manner.

Today I love drinking coffee in the warm light of new beginnings.

Today I Love Beginnings

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.
