Today I Love Feeling Lazy

coffee at work
Come on coffee, pick me up!

Today I love feeling lazy, pondering this lazy, hazy, warm and wonderful summer like day. I love that I feel like I could use a nap, even though I never nap and I just got up not two hours ago. I love that I’m in my Wednesday office so there’s nothing here to do but work and roam around the internet. I love that it is invoice day, even though that means I have to do invoices, because I love going through all the things I’ve done over the past month. I love that I just yawned at the thought of invoicing. I love that there is coffee here at the office and that I may be able to get a little more excited about doing things if I get on to my third cup soon. I love how the words just pile up in the word counter even though I feel like I’ve only mentioned a couple of things that I love so far. I love that this is part of what I do for a living, sit and think about things to love and why I love them and how to describe them. I love that this is just one of the ways in which I am a lucky boy.

Today I love that I still call myself a boy even though I’ll be sixty in less than a year. I love that I mentioned on Facebook yesterday that becoming an adult was optional and that I had so far avoided that particular degradation and, with any luck, should be able to get through the rest of my life without falling for it. I love that I have accomplished many grownup things in my life without ever succumbing to adulthood. I love that there is nothing “lost” about being one of the lost boys, if that is what we are calling someone who prefers to continue to enjoy their childhood..

Today I love that it is May and apparently we are going to make an effort to participate in the 30 in 30 where we spend a minimum of thirty minutes a day outside for thirty days, and so far I’m good to go, having spent several hours outside yesterday. I love plans like this even though we are feeling like we may have to either bank hours against bad days or play catch up when we have bad days where we can’t get out.

Today I love drinking lazy coffee in my Wednesday office.

Today I Love Feeling Lazy

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.
