Today I Love Easy Moods

I will persevere … maybe

Today I love easy moods and light days. I love taking care of myself and my family as best I can. I love making a difference in my home and in my world. I love discovering things that I can do to make my home or my community or the world better than it was. I love sitting back and contemplating life with my random association circuit turned on to full and my “what if?” question generator going flat out, ’cause that’s when I figure lots of things out and discover the things I could be passionate about. I love not knowing how the story ends, both when I’m reading and in real life. I love that I’m always ready for life to go whatever way it might and always accepting of the less than favorable directions, but that means that when things go well it makes me very happy. I love that when things don’t go well I’m the guy who immediately starts digging through the rubble to salvage the good that I can from things. I love that I’m good at that and I love that I keep in practice as much as life allows. I love that I don’t have to practice too much and I love that it is possible that I’ve practiced so much and gotten so good at finding the good in things that I don’t realize that I’m doing it anymore and life just seems great. I love that I think that would be great if it were the case, and even better if it were and I never figured it out.

Today I love that I am at home in my Thursday office chair. I love that Thursdays are often light days for me when it comes to work, though they have been known to have their wheels fall off and get loaded down with tasks. I love that even though that happens sometimes, I’ve never encountered a Thursday that I haven’t survived and I don’t expect this one to be any different.

Today I love that the pot is full of porridge and the fridge has lots of ready to eat food in it. I love that I’m staring down a messy kitchen and I’m going to win that contest because once I start cleaning it up I am not going to blink, figuratively, until it is done, ship shape and Bristol fashion, sparkling. I love that we are so close to deciding to put in a new kitchen that I can almost taste the food that will come out of there.

Today I love slowly sipping and savoring my coffee while I work myself into a state of kitchen cleaning frenzy … hmmm, not quite there yet. Oh well, I’ll just have another cup.

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.
