Today I Love Good Health

Infected finger
When I had hotdog finger

Today I love good health and my crazy way of dividing my health up into sections so that I can claim good health even if I’m not doing the best. I love qualifying my health when something crazy happens like when I got hotdog finger from an infection from a tiny stab wound in my index finger while making oatmeal that infected the tendon sheath and caused me to be unable to play guitar and made me say that I was 100% in most of my body and 10% in my first fret finger which is only 10% of my digits and they’re like 1 % of my body so I was actually 99.91% and that’s close enough to round up. I love that this life is the best one I’ve had that I can remember, so I’m 100% from that vantage as well. I love that the things that were bad in my life, like my alcoholism, are in my past and will hopefully remain there. I love that no matter how I feel I almost always get up and get going and get things done. I love that it is hard to keep me down, so don’t even try! I love that there is always something that needs to be done and that means I’m still needed here.

Today I love that there is snow to move out in our driveway and I’m going to do that and then get out to the grocery store and stock up on a couple of things.  I love that I am wearing one of my favorite hats today, one that was made for me. I love how organized our house is getting, love the shelves we’ve put up in the library area and the cupboards that make one wall of our dining room a pantry/display wall and it is so cool it’s almost magical. I love that my next job is rearranging the laundry room and stacking the washer and dryer and maybe putting in some shelving. I love when things get organized and suddenly life in that space seems simple and easy.

Today I love raspberries in oatmeal. I love that we discussed whether or not there were too many raspberries in the oatmeal and the verdict was best summed up by the question, “Can you even have too many raspberries? Is there even such a thing?” I love that our netflix consumption is likely driving netflix crazy and I imagine them asking themselves, “Who are these people?”

Today I love slowly sipping good hot coffee and thinking about health and really great 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.
