Today I Love Resilient Hearts

our new home library
Reading time …

Today I love resilient hearts that take the abuses of the world and keep on moving ahead with life. I love people who savor their broken heart and accept that it is caused by experiencing love and that it would have been worse to miss out on that than to lose it after having had it. I love how hearts can keep on beating when there seems like no reason to do so, like they know that if they just keep going some new love will come along. I love that my heart has proven that repeatedly and now it is content and joyous, good old heart. I love that loving my heart is the ultimate example of reciprocity, since loving makes my heart stronger and my heart’s strength is what gives me the capacity to love. I love that writing “Today I Love …” is an exercise in maintaining good heart health. I love how easy it is to find things and people to love when you start to look for them. I love how easy it is to fall in love with the world when you choose to try for understanding instead of judging. I love this world of wonders.

Today I love that they are calling for a storm and, though I have a few things to do before it gets here I’m good with contemplating the idea of staying in and continuing with the new order we are imposing on our happy home. I love that half of our upstairs hall has become “the library” and it is looking so organized and cheerful that I want to just sit down and read every book that is there. I love that it is the amalgamation of two peoples well loved books and I love that there is room to grow yet. I love that books are still an important part of our world.

Today I love finding happiness in knowledge. I love shepherds pie. I love waiting for good things to happen, like birthday parties that are set for a specific time. I love comfort and joy when the evening settles on us and we evaluate our day and find it to have been worthy of admiration. I love eating with friends. I love holding myself accountable for what I do and say even though I know I’m going to do or say the wrong thing sooner or later, because if I hold myself accountable, I can make amends for those things and that gives me a chance to prove the value of friendship.

Today I love sipping coffee while I contemplate the new official Owen Sound North East Private Library and Upper Concourse.

Today I Love Resilient Hearts

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.
