Today I Love Secret Passages

A hole in a rock wall
The entrance to another world of wonder, maybe?

Today I love secret passages that lead my imagination to places of wonder and amazement. I love when I come across something that I know is likely only what it appears to be, but I do not investigate because as long as I leave it unsolved, it can be so much more. I love that the hole in this old wall might actually be an entrance to a secret underground world where all the things that I currently worry about are non-existent. I love imagining that this is the place where people can go when they can’t take any more of this craziness and that I would likely love it, but if I stay here there will be room for one more there, and that will help someone out. I love that my imagination is such a wild and fertile place to live and in that respect it is my secret underground world that I get to share glimpses of with whomever I please. I love that as soon as I’m done work today and have a few minutes to myself I’m either going for a walk or I’m going to explore that entrance and that underground world in my imagination.

Today I love that I have some weird head cold thing or something similar and my ears are kind of plugged but I can hear things really well and they sound loud. I love that I woke up in the middle of the night and thought, “Oh no, my tinnitus has gotten much worse!” but it was actually this ear plugged thing and as soon as anyone talks to me or I listen to the radio it becomes its normal volume in relation to other sounds. I love that although I’m feeling weird and have every expectation that something bad is coming on, I feel good enough to have made it back to my Wednesday office for the first time in three or four weeks. I love that the seasons seem to have changed since last I was here.

Today I love that I have my main computer back in front of me and it’s rolling along just fine thus far. I love that I now know that my back up computer will handle the things I need to do on a daily and weekly basis, and I love that I’m going to get it upgraded so that it can do those things a bit faster.

Today I love drinking coffee in my Wednesday office while I anticipate heading into that underground world in my mind.

Today I Love Secret Passages

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.
