Today I Love News From Friends

part of the gardens
Oh yeah, there are plans …

Today I love news from friends who are finding ways to fill their lives with work that is meaningful to them. I love how we all move forward and yet get to reach across from our paths and touch each other and share what’s new and exciting and eventful, just because we want to share our good fortunes with those who are important to us. I love that I lead such a diverse life that I can be fixing plumbing in the early morning and writing just an hour later and then planning to crop and size images for news stories when the writing is done. I love that this world offers me so many outlets for my energy. I love that music is such a big part of that even when I’m not spared the time to create new stuff. I love that I am excited about working in the garden for a bit today. I love that I am aware that garden work always seems to be such a slow thing for me, lots to do to affect even what seems to me to be a small change, but I have learned that the change at the end is worth the glacial pace in the execution of my tasks.

Today I love that yesterday I let my cravings get the better of me and I bought fast food and gorged a bit, because every now and then I need my diet to be a little greasy and not so green. I love that there are lots of leftovers, Mmmmm. I love that the fast food I bought was one of my Grandmother’s favorite foods, even though she felt awfully guilty about buying prepared food when it was her opinion that food prep was a large part of her occupation on the farm.

Today I love plans to name our dragon boat properly with clever decals and the club name and a message for those who are in our wake. I love that we have had lots of interest in the sport this winter and are looking forward to having some new people join us out on the water for fun and a bit of exercise and a view of our city that most people never get to experience. I love that I feel I can hear my little kayak calling me from its storage space in the bunkie at the cottage. I love that I feel I can hear the bunkie calling me to clear stuff out of it and get it ready for those who get to rough it in bunk beds in a cabin on the shore.

Today I love drinking coffee while I dream of all the future things that will grow from the seeds of thought and activity planted today.

Today I Love News From Friends

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.
