Today I Love Sunny Morning Drives

morning sky and trees
Blue sky and sunshine

Today I love sunny morning drives on my way to the Wednesday office. I love this blue sky day of sunlight and opportunity. I love that I have a lot to do today and yet it all seems doable and I think I’ve got this. I love feeling confident and ready to work and I love that my daily work load always starts off with writing “Today I Love …” because this doesn’t seem like work at all, it’s just taking the time to think about the good things in life and then documenting them. I love when people stop me to show me pictures of their new dogs. I love when people have happy things to talk about. I love when things are changed in the hope that they will be better and I really love when things actually work and really do change for the better. I love how easy that sometimes is to do and I love when something starts out as an annoyance and then becomes a problem and no one really notices it because it just happened so slowly and then one person says, “What if we did this?” and all of a sudden the world becomes disproportionately brighter and happier and better because something that has been a bothersome but almost invisible thing has suddenly been rectified.

Today I love that I have, over the past four days, either forgotten to shave or not had time from one day to the next and now it looks like I have a playoff beard on the go and what is really funny about that is that I don’t believe in the superstitions that would lead to a playoff beard and yet I am currently in the preliminary round of the playoffs. I love that though tonight might be the last playoff game I play this season, I’m playing again tomorrow night as a spare so no matter what happens tonight I am not done curling yet. I love that the only reason I curl is to have fun and so winning doesn’t seem to be something I care much about.

Today I love shredded wheat breakfasts. I love that we’re on a holiday from oatmeal just because I didn’t make any yet for this week. I love that the weather is warm enough that we can get away with that. I love oranges and I love bananas and I’ll even eat them together at the same time and love them that way. I love how the simplest of things can bring the richest of quiet pleasures.

Today I love drinking coffee while the sun works diligently to light up this blue skied morning.

Today I Love Sunny Morning Drives

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.
