Today I Love People Who Ask Questions

sunrise
Morning’s promise

Today I love people who ask questions that make us notice what we maybe were missing. I love when someone quietly directs our notice toward something that was wrong and I really love it if they can make the observation in a humorous way. I love it even more if they can make me laugh at myself and even that much more if they can do it without making me feel judged. I love people who see things others miss. I love that they usually know that they miss things as well, but they miss different things. I love that we are better together because together we see more and miss less. I love that humanity is stronger when it works as a singularity rather than as a collection of individuals. I love that there are a few ways that this usually happens, though we do not notice it because it’s not very obvious. I love that we work together in little ways like saying hello when we meet and sharing experiences verbally to pass on wisdom. I love that we now communicate globally by messaging and texting with each other when not that long ago (for me) we had to wait days and sometimes weeks for correspondence. I love how liquid our ability to interact has become.

Today I love that last night’s paddle group was so strong even though they were only eleven in number. I love how receptive they were to individual coaching and I love how much the boat moved when they were each paddling by themselves. I love that by the end of our paddle they were tired but had gotten the feel of paddling so well that the boat was still moving well and even maybe faster than it had when we first started out fresh. I love that I got a chance to coach at the end and that the person who took over the helm did a great job of getting us back to our home slip.

Today I love oatmeal with raisins and a touch of cinnamon. I love the sunrise I saw this morning at five. I love that I got up to take a picture of it and then when I went back to sleep I slept until the alarm went off. I love that there are mornings that look like they are promising that the world is mine to do with as I please. I love that it pleases me to just absorb the world and love it. I love this beautiful planet.

Today I love drinking coffee in my Wednesday office while my mind wanders back to this morning’s sunrise.

Today I Love People Who Ask Questions

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.
