Today I Love Rekindled Passions

Today I love rekindled passions such as the tales of a friend who has taken up bicycling again and rode from one town to another and back again today while I was dawdling along on highways miles away, in a Toyota, doing no good whatsoever for my health. I love that so many of my friends are pursuing new activities these days and that I have convinced some of them to try some of the things I do for fun and leisure. I love that one or more of my dragon boat crew are thinking of trying curling this coming season. I love that my good friend and partner is going to try making stained glass ornaments with my equipment, encouragement, and the scant knowledge I have to offer on the subject. I love that tomorrow night I am going for a sleep study because I’ve recently been contemplating taking up competitive sleeping and I figure this is a good place to start. I love that this day is a breezy one and yet a warm one at the same time. I love that, although I have forgotten to take my meds today and left them behind when I left home, I am okay so far and hope to survive for a few hours more and then I’ll just take the whole lot of them and be good for the day. I love that, although I joke about medication, I am very serious about the way I deal with the stuff and give it the respect it deserves; I’m just also aware that it can’t hear me so I have no problem teasing it.

Today I love that I again have come miles and miles to get to this point in my day and that I am good at driving and managing to still be up for work when I get off the road. I love that I drove a rather circuitous route but have managed to find my way to my Wednesday office and things are pretty good here. I love that the moon was in the sky when I rolled out of the driveway this morning and it always makes my early morning departures seem more wondrous and perhaps even more legendary, should my wanderings ever become the stuff of legend.

Today I love freshly made egg salad sandwiches and I love that I was the one that made them, yay me. I love when I suddenly decide to make something I used to be good at doing and it turns out I still have the knack of it. I love that cooking is one of my intermittent passions and that it comes around every now and then.

Today I love drinking coffee and getting back into my work here in my Wednesday office now that I’m once again off the roads of my ongoing and maybe legendary adventures.

Today I Love Rekindled Passions

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.
