Today I Love Feeling Sore

Feeling at home in the Wednesday office

Today I love feeling sore because it’s a good kind of sore, the ache you feel when you’ve been working and getting things done. I love that I spent the day yesterday going back and forth from construction work to online work and all that work worked out all right for me. I love that I ended the day with a dragon boat run on a rolling bay and a plate of sweet potato fries with those of my paddling crew that needed to wind down. I love the way things all come together every day, the festival, my work, the day’s chores, they all just fall into place even if sometimes their place is tomorrow. I love that I did a bit of trailer hauling and a bit of deconstructing and a bit of writing and a bit of article posting and a tad of IT and it was all mixed up through the day and that made my day great. I love that every passing day brings Summerfolk closer. I love that I am a double volunteer this year, doing construction because I can’t seem to stay away, and being one of the festival’s radio show hosts because I love talking and writing scripts. I love that I now have the task of enjoying Summerfolk twice as much as I ever did to make it worth all my volunteering.

Today I love that I am in my Wednesday office to get caught up a little bit on my other work and maybe get a bit ahead and thus have a better chance to enjoy this coming weekend. I love that, since it’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve been here, I’m also having to really enjoy my time in my Wednesday office this week to catch up on that. I love falling back into a groove of activity and finding it to be comfortable and familiar. I love my regularly scheduled programming.

Today I love that when we watch TV we always say, “Why don’t we do this more often?” and then we never do, ’cause we have so many things we love to do and we do them all. I love that I’m hoping to go for a good walk today. I love that there’s talk of supper being my responsibility and I’m up for that, but I might need an assistant ’cause it could be spectacular … or maybe it will be simple and I’ll just take care of it. I love that I laugh at myself more than I laugh at anything or anyone else, but I do it under my breath because people look strangely at me when i do it out loud. 😉

Today I love drinking coffee in my Wednesday office and laughing quietly while the festival gets closer to ready without me for a day.

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.
