Today I Love Feeling Tired

coffee on the keyboard
I’ll maybe put the lid back on before I get even more excited …

Today I love feeling tired and knowing I deserve this feeling because of all the things I’ve been doing. I love that I also feel a sense of accomplishment and that the things I do now are often as permanent as the internet, which is a house of cards according to some and a permanent closet of all our skeletons according to others. I love that we will see which is true and that I’m feeling like the truth will be somewhere in between. I love that I am once again in my Wednesday office and I love the continuity of that connection, one week to the next to the next and so on. I love that I can watch the seasons roll in 52 memory snapshots out of this cafĂ© window. I love the view of a small town and this one in particular is such a cheerful, happy, vacation destination and half year residence for people. I love how luck alone brought me to this office space, how luck has played such a big part in my life since I’ve chosen to accept and engage with the good luck and shun and deny the bad. I love that proactively turning away from the results of ill fate puts it in its place.

Today I love that I loaded the dragon boat perfectly last night for balance and spacing from front to back and the crew had a good time being pacers, engine room paddlers and rockets. I love that we were able to warm up and dawdle around the inner harbor long enough for our coach to get to the docks and then we were able to pick her up and really work that bay over. I love that I was reminded that it is important for me to be there on the back when I put down the steering oar to grab a drink of water and in five seconds the boat was turned almost ninety degrees to port, wow those starboard paddlers were working hard.

Today I love onion rings. I love lotto tickets that haven’t been drawn yet ’cause that’s just a whole mess of dreams in a slip of paper. I love getting comments telling of things that other people love, and I love when someone starts writing “Today I Love …” posts where ever they can. I love that love is something that can be shared and it grows greater when you do, rather than being halved and reduced.

Today I love nursing my coffee in my Wednesday office.

Today I Love Feeling Tired

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.
