Today I Love Effervescent Life

Fun times in the Wednesday office

Today I love effervescent life boiling and bubbling determinedly around me. I love the way the Wednesday office is often full of happy chatter and cheerful reunions and families starting their days and people making first contact with the world and their morning coffee. I love the way small towns are full of friends who are pleased to meet each other once again. I love how big cities are really just a whole bunch of small towns packed in tightly together. I love that the small town that is home to my Wednesday office is busy putting up holiday banners on the lamp posts and they look like fun ones this year. I love when towns and cities make an effort to be good and joyous, fostering a happy and neighborly atmosphere in which the residents can dwell and thrive and grow. I love when children are included in communities and community activities not as an add on but as a valid segment of the population and as the most important future that they are. I love when people and organizations and even neighborhoods engage with children in a way that makes them aware that they can have positive effects on our world and I really love when those children actually generate positive effects on our world that we can enjoy now and they will get to benefit from now and in their futures. I love children and I love that they seem to have permission to engage in this world now and there seems to be less push to have them “seen and not heard” as their was in my days as a child, and I’m hoping they reach their adult years already experienced at having been listened to, because what they have to say should not be repressed or belittled.

Today I love how my world never fails to inspire me eventually. I love that I already know what I’ll be writing about in my other blog. I love that it may take me a while to get it all put together the way I want it to be, but I will get it put together the way I want it to be eventually. I love that i get to write and that my writing manifests in so many ways, blogs, songs, poems, short stories, podcasts and radio shows, I am a lucky guy.

Today I love fresh baked bread. I love banana bread, zucchini bread, lemon poppy seed loaf, muffins and cakes and all the baked wonderful goodness that there is potential for. I love that yesterday I managed to do some baking and I got my kitchen cleaned up afterwards and it still remains clean. I love that my plans for a remodeled kitchen are slowly coming together and there will be a wall oven.

Today I love drinking coffee in the Wednesday office while life simmers in a quick and happy manner all around me.


Today I Love Effervescent 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.
