Today I Love Feeling And Breathing Better

finished writing and finished coffee
What’s next

Today I love feeling better and breathing easier. I love antibiotics when administered judiciously, love that although I have had too many rounds of them in the last year this latest round is probably exactly what I’ve been needing lately. I love that all it took was the fifteen minute drive back from the emergency room before I was feeling so much better. I love that though I am still not even 70% I feel like I’m going in the right direction, like I’m healing. I love that when I’m not well I lament so much that when I start to get better I enjoy my life with extra gusto. I love how determined I am to keep going even when I’m not doing well, makes me feel like I’m a bad ass rebel bucking the system and doing what ever I please, though I’d dearly love to just lie down and read for days on end. I love that it is a cloudy, grey day but warm and dry so far. I love that we are getting ready to close up the cottage for another week and I love that I am already making plans to get things done next weekend. I love that we almost have six new wooden lawn chairs, four are complete and just need a final coat of stain, one is stained with one coat and waiting to go together and one is still in the box in pieces, but it should be nothing now that we’ve been through five of them.

Today I love french toast for breakfast. I love that there are doughnuts here in the cottage, but not for long. I love that the kayaks will be out and on the water soon. I love that we are pondering a little sailboat. I love how beautiful it is here and how hard it is to leave when it’s time to return to the weekday world. I love that we make Mondays part of our weekends. I love that work is calling me so that I won’t feel too much angst about leaving here today.

Today I love flowers that are small but intricate when looked at closely. I love that the main floor of the cottage is at ground level out front but is up in the trees out back. I love that we walk out of the basement and I love that we have a Great Lake in our back yard because our bay is a bay that is part of a bigger bay that is a huge part of Lake Huron. I love that I’m being told that it smells like summer and I’m thinking that’s right.

Today I love drinking my coffee down and writing quickly so that I can get on with my day because it’s going to be a good one now that I’m feeling better.

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.
