Today I Love Opportunities To …

clouds rolling in
Waiting for the tantrum

Today I love opportunities to make life bigger and fuller and better. I love that every day offers these chances, but some days offer chances at bigger prizes and those days remind us to look for the opportunities in every other day of our lives. I love when even on the bad days I am able to find the good, but on some days the good is in my face and laughing happily at my joy and ecstasy. I love when I have had a hand in the making of an opportunity and I love how good and confident that can make me feel. I love that there is a new adventure in the offing and I’m as ready for it as I have been for every other adventure, which is to say, not at all, but I know that I will gather my strength and collect my support and hit the ground running if I need to.I love that like some of my other adventures, this one starts out secretly and will materialize if everything falls into place. I love that if that happens I will either be struck dumb or won’t shut up; my money is on the latter. I love the excitement of adventure.

Today I love the rain as it falls gently from the grey depths of the cloudy sky. I love that I have seen some lighter patches that may give way eventually to bits of blue sky, though the weather report suggests that it is the clouds and rain that will eventually lead to thundershowers. I love when there is thunder in the afternoon, I love when rain and thunder happen without wind so that I can sit on the front porch, stay dry and watch the fury as it plunders the poor dry earth, listen to the wrath and fury of mother nature in her tantrum and see the flashing of her piercing looks at us puny humans, daring us to set foot in her domain.

Today I love breakfasting out. I love the way the little adventures in life fill in the spaces between the big ones and keep my life interesting. I love people who find the good in scary situations, like my friends Mary and Richard who had to dash out of their semi because the neighbor’s home was suspected of being on fire, love how they called it a drill and were proud of their evacuation skills when it turned out to be a candle in the window.

Today I love sipping coffee while waiting for the thunder to start, waiting for the emotional tantrums of mother nature as she fires up the electricity and pounds on her tympani and proclaims her power to be absolute.

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.
