Today I Love This Quiet Wednesday Town

Today I love this quiet Wednesday town lying by the rolling water of the big bay and in the soft summer air, quietly waiting for the weekend so that it can boom again. I love that I get to see it in its working clothes while it tends to its chores, selling sandwiches and groceries and lotto tickets and books and paint. I love that I have passed through on weekends and seen it in its Sunday clothes when there is company about. I love that many have come here and opted to stay and found the peacefulness of the weekdays to be quite appealing, just as appealing in their own way as the slightly louder and more engaging bustle and hum of weekends. I love this quiet town and I love that I get to experience it along side of the other experiences I have of my own little city and our quiet yet busy weekend cottage on the water. I love how my life seems to gather to it so many different experiences and just when I think I’ve exhausted all the possibilities without moving forward, a day dawns with a new hue to the light of it and I see the world in a new way and BAM!, a new one to add to my collection. I love this quiet, happy, contentedly rumbling with soon to be realized potential, little Wednesday town.

Today I love being late but making it here on time. I love that even though I slept late and didn’t get quite enough sleep I am awake and happy and cheering the world and its people on and still reveling in my sense of humor and the things it shows me to laugh at and about. I love that the people around me do what they do, not always with confidence, but always with determination and eventually success. I love this world today that seems to be nodding at me as I pick up the pace and hit my stride and catch up to the pack as we pursue the almighty end of the day and the remuneration we are all expecting. I love that my first paycheck of the day is always made out in the currency of love.

Today I love fresh peaches in my oatmeal. I love sandwich lunch plans. I love that this old brain often starts a thought with, “There’s nothing new left to think about … except this!” and goes on to embellish some fresh inspiration with details that make the idea fly.

Today I love drinking coffee in my Wednesday, café office in this quiet little, Wednesday, seaside town.

Today I Love This Quiet Wednesday Town

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.
