Today I Love Being This Me

Not some accidental Wednesday office …

Today I love being this me and living this life of mine. I love that there is no accidental Kelly taking my place and the real Kelly is right here doing the right things and living the right life, there’s nothing worse than an accidental Kelly messing things up. I love that I will keep going as long as I can and when I’m done, if others take over doing all the things that I do than they will hopefully be the correct people at the correct time. I love that the whole concept of an accidental Kelly came up in a conversation that made me feel good and happy. I love those kinds of conversations, I’d have only them if there was any way of getting things done without all the other conversations, though those fun kinds of conversations like the one about accidental Kellies are important too, they make life good and fun and make the getting things done convos work better. I love conversations and the way they can take me to places that I wasn’t expecting to go. I love that it was a casual conversation a couple of weeks ago with an acquaintance that took me back to the darkest day of my life and I love that I am realizing that maybe I needed to go there just for a few days to remind myself of all the good that is in my life that I struggled to find after that day. I love every day I have lived through because I have lived through them all and here I am.

Today I love that there is a schedule of sorts in place for the renovations to proceed on. I love that there will be wiring and plumbing in place soon and then the kitchen cupboards will go in and then there will be joyous celebrations and possibly a bit of happy dancing. I love that as soon as the kitchen is installed and we move into it I may just forget about the rest of the house for a bit and cook some things to get caught up on feeling like our house looks after us.

Today I love eating in the dining room even though it is a bit cluttered with the things that have been moved from the current renovation site where we used to eat most of our meals. I love new adventures and eating and sitting and watching TV and reading in a different part of the house feels like an adventure these days. I love how easy it is to have an adventure, but I also love that you can work hard at having adventures as well and the return on investment is almost always worth it.

Today I love drinking coffee in my Wednesday office while I contemplate how good it is to be the real thing and not some accidental Kelly in an accidental Wednesday office.

Today I Love Being This Me

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.
