Today I Love The Beauty Of Living

I’ve seen some life, but I saw mostly lumber …

Today I love the beauty of living and the treasure of life. I love that every now and then I remember that I am alive and I admit how amazing that is. I love that I am working on reminding myself of that when I get grumpy about the things that bother me. I love the saying “first world problems” because it is basically the same thought as, “remember that you are alive and that you have lived and breathed and this thing that is upsetting you will become less significant by comparison to that, and may well become completely insignificant.” I love that I have been blessed to live a life where my problems are so insignificant. I love that I am still alive and though I’m getting older I am accruing memories and that is a wealth no one can take away from me. I love that I am aware that all things that impact my life add to it, and that I own these experiences, love that they all have value, though many of these experiences offer lessons of how not to do things. I love that such lessons make other parts of life better. I love that right now I am right here and you are too, and we are sharing this thought from differing perspectives, but with a little bit of luck we are both getting something good from it, and for that I owe you thanks.

Today I love that it is Friday and despite the things I said yesterday about Friday’s not being a real full working day because they drift into being part of the weekend, this day comes with a to do list that is quite substantial and I am accepting the challenge. I love that when this day does drift into the weekend it will do so by wandering in to an open mic where I will be the host and then on to a sheet of ice where I and my team from this draw will try one more time to win a game of curling before we disband and head to new teams. I love that last night was date night and we saw a great play at our local theater.

Today I love that this week I fixed some things, made some things, cooked some things, cleaned some things, learned some things, saw some things, went to some places and wrote a whole lot of things. I love that my life is diverse enough that I don’t get bored. I love that I know my limits and one of them is that I cannot do the same thing for hours on end without either wandering away or falling asleep.

Today I love drinking my morning coffee while I acknowledge that there is a saw in my future that needs to be used to make some pieces of wood that will fit in a job that needs doing.

Today I Love The Beauty Of Living

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.
