Today I Love Perfect Summer Days

“Ask for it – it’s the best”

Today I love perfect summer days in the last part of summer. I love that there is talk here of going golfing and I’m excited about that, even if I’m not seeming to be because of the work I have to do first. I love that I used to golf twice a week or more and I love that every time I go out golfing I always think I’ll start doing that again, even though I never do seem to find the time for it and the season always runs out like a river that disappears into a porous field of regrets. I love that I am aware of that and that the regrets just remind me that there is a game that I love to play. I love that I am living through some changes in my life right now and I love that I am learning how to view life differently yet again. I love that every time I’ve had to rethink my approach to living I’ve always figured out ways to enjoy it as much as possible and often found parts of a new life that made it worthy of embracing with passion. I love that this is not by accident and I am always working on finding the best way to look at my life and to enjoy it to the utmost. I love using my life to inspire myself and when others are inspired by that then I love it even more. I love that a life with hope is always the better life. I love that I always wish for others to have hope first, that feeling is worth a fortune.

Today I love that we may yet get to that cottage on the shore though we won’t be there for long, maybe overnight tonight if we can organize the expedition. I love that we have started getting the cottage ready for the coming change of seasons. I love that the dock is out of the water and this year it came out very easily with a few engineering changes in the way we do things. I love that we intended to get the dock out and we did, that we planned to pile up the segments later and I was actually able to leave that for later. I love that I might be learning to go a little easier on myself in my old age.

Today I love late breakfast, sleeping in, feeling rested, getting work done, listening to birds sing, laughing with friends over drinks and food, and meeting friends who know how to laugh well. I love that part of my enjoyment of my life is knowing how to laugh at myself and my life.

Today I love drinking coffee, and this morning I kind of feel like that’s all I need to say on that subject, so good.

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.
