Today I Love Good Ideas

coffee, phone, computer
The happy Wednesday office

Today I love good ideas that drop into my head unbidden and at the most opportune times. I love that the truth of that is that when I get an idea that is good I enjoy it for as long as I can and when I get one that is bad I dismiss it as soon as I realize it’s bad, so the odds are in my favor that I’m going to love the ideas that take up my time. I love that my mind is almost never at a loss for good ideas and my mouth is never at a loss for something to say, though it isn’t always the right thing. I love that most folks I know are aware of my impulsive nature and have resigned themselves to enjoying it or at least tolerating it. I love ideas that make me laugh, whether or not they are good ones. I love thoughts of adventure and ideas that lead to plans. I love that there is more travel in my future and that travel might involve coastal excursions and salty air. I love finding my way around this world and this life when opportunities present themselves for me to wander. I love the feeling I cultivate in myself that we are one globe and that countries are more of a sports team situation where we cheer for one team or another but we are really more involved in the game than in the adversarial part.

Today I love the grey sky that speaks of spring showers in the near future, like eight days from now when it becomes spring and it will rain somewhere, maybe here in my area. I love that I am at the Wednesday office and I’m drinking my Wednesday coffee from my Wednesday cup while doing my usual Wednesday work. I love that I have this schedule and this day that feels like a reset day but isn’t, feels like a day off but i get lots done.

Today I love pondering baking and potential kitchen projects. I love that I considered staying home today to bake bread and stuff. I love that I have a go to recipe for gluten free dairy free cookies and that they are only a problem for people with peanut allergies … sorry, people with peanut allergies. I love that I love to bake and am totally an egomaniac when it comes to how good I am at it.

Today I love drinking coffee in the Wednesday office with the happy racket of people meeting and coffee brewing and ideas reeling around in my head.

Today I Love Good Ideas

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.
