Today I Love Getting Things Done

blue skied summer day
Another perfect day

Today I love getting things done and yesterday I did just that even though I ended up not feeling that great. I love that there is just a little bit of laundry to finish up. I love that I got some writing done on my radio show script. I love that I got some work done on the back end of the and some work done on the SeeInADHD site I work for. I love that I got into the pool and, though I don’t swim well, I managed 400 meters in 30 minutes, yay. I love that I managed all this and more in the very high heat and humidity that we had. I love keeping busy when the world feels like it’s trying to stop everything and everyone in their tracks. I love that it has cooled off considerably, though some rain wouldn’t have gone amiss. I love that my lawn looks like the snow just melted off of it, it’s just yellowed dead grass leaves. I love that there are enough weeds in it to give it a healthy green look. I love that the new term for weeds is biodiversity and that means that my yard is healthy and still helping as much as it can to clean the air even in drought conditions.

Today I love that it is Friday and I’ve got that Friday feeling like I could do almost anything, everything, all the things and end up having a great week by having a great day to top off all the other great days I’ve had thus far. I love that, although the open mic has been cancelled for today, I still feel the positive feeling of it being open mic day. I love that I am trying to take it easy today because we have to be ready to paddle tomorrow in at least three dragon boat races in Hamilton tomorrow. I love that I can give blood on Wednesday and still be ready to paddle on Saturday even though I’m not a kid anymore and haven’t been for at least a week or more, I’m one tough old man.

Today I love rhubarb strawberry pie for breakfast and lunch. I love the way all my jobs are going. I love writing so many different things for so many different mediums, and no, I’m not a ghost writer for a clairvoyant. I love that I just laughed about “ghost writer fore a clairvoyant” and the neighbors probably think I’m talking to myself again, which is okay because I totally am.

Today I love sipping coffee on the front verandah while I chat quietly with myself about the coolness of the beautiful day that I’m in the middle of.

Today I Love Getting Things Done

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.
