Today I Love Feeling Better Yet Again

Today I love feeling better yet again, better than yesterday and certainly better than the day before or than last week. I love that I feel like my head has been a bit foggy for a while now and there seems to be some clearing there. I love that the front garden seems to have exploded in my mental absence and is so full of blooms and lush growth that I feel like i parachuted into the middle of the season, though I do remember slowly getting here through a cool and steady spring transition. I love that all the birds around our place sound just like me, chirping and twittering and whistling on despite that others are also trying to communicate and no one is listening to anyone. I love that we walked past our friends house last night and their front porch was gone and I was teasingly offering to call the police and report it as stolen for them. I love that I walked more than ten thousand steps yesterday and though our guide suggests that numbers that big should be written as numbers instead of written out, I wanted that number to have the full impact so it is ten thousand, although it is also 10,000 (actually 10,761, I won’t write that out, but I could šŸ˜‰ ).

Today I love that there are things to be done in order to get ready for this weekend coming up and they are not trivial things because this weekend coming up is the beginning of a week of adventure and I need to be ready. I love that I am going half way across the country and since I live in the middle, sort of, that means I’m going to the edge and I’m totally prepared to embrace the excitement of that. I love adventures that take me to other places and let me see sights I haven’t seen or at least sights I haven’t seen in a long time and this trip will include both of those.

Today I love cold cereal when it’s a hot day. I love sleeping with the windows open. I love that I’m completely ready for this mini heat wave that is on its way here today and tomorrow. I love that where I’m going the weather is far more temperate and that seems like a good thing while I slowly try to get my lungs working properly again. I love that there are times when I feel like I cannot breathe and yet there seems to never be a time when I cannot sing … odd? Yes.

Today I love drinking coffee while I write on the front porch with this riot of flowers laid out before me.

Today I Love Feeling Better Yet Again

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.
