Today I Love Finding My Way Through Life

Waiting room
Waiting in rooms never lasts

Today I love finding my way through life, turning the corners and dealing with the surprises that show up. I love that almost every surprise can be looked at in two ways, from the good side or from the bad side. I love that I have become fond of corners because most of them bring me forward in life. I love that there is always an adventure, though sometimes just a small one with each twist and turn I make through my years and months, weeks and days and hours. I love that I have found myself to be the patient of a doctor who is a friend of mine, and as I know this friend to be a caring person I am feeling fortunate, even though the patient doctor relationship is likely temporary. I love that I am writing from that doctors office and waiting for them to get to me and that I am looking forward to wishing my doctor a happy belated birthday. I love that I have gotten lots of things done this morning so far, though some of them were not on my list of usual tasks. I love that I remembered to pump up the rear passenger side tire before I headed out to my appointment. I love that I am not breathing very easily this morning because when you go to see the doctor about your intermittent breathing issues it’s good for them to experience the issue part instead of the intermittent part.

Today I love that it is Wednesday and although I am not in my Wednesday office I am still on the ball and ready to take care of business as best I can. I love that I am replacing my Wednesday commute with a doctor’s appointment and some grocery shopping because those things need doing. I love that I’ll be working some blood tests in there too, because the more we know the healthier we are. I love that I make an effort to be a good patient because I’ve discovered that things go easier and people hear me more if I’m that patient they don’t dread seeing.

Today I love working while I go through my appointments. I love that I can work on my phone in a pinch and can carry my laptop to some pretty strange places to keep up with my tasks. I love that I am constantly falling behind and constantly catching up because I love being busy.

Today I love drinking coffee in my big old easy chair after running errands and going to appointments and writing in a couple of different waiting rooms.

Today I Love Finding My Way Through Life

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 on the traditional lands of the Chippewas of Nawash in an area where my family history stretches back 6 or 7 generations and my First Nations friend's families go back hundreds of 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 am a freelance writer and I write two blogs here at Psych Central, one about living with 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.
