Today I Love Finally Writing

my helmet, and coffee
My head was in there when it hit the ice …

Today I love finally writing after curling all day long. I love that we didn’t win a single game but we tied the last team that we played two games in a row and we both had two ties and a loss and then we hung out with them for dinner and it was a pretty good day. I love that I fell, straight back, hard, and went down like a sack of cement and whacked my head down hard on the ice except that I was wearing my helmet and didn’t hurt my head at all, whew. I love that I feel like I got hit across the shoulders pretty hard ’cause that’s going to remind me that I fell and remind me how lucky it was that last year we decided we weren’t ever going out on the ice without a helmet ever again because I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be here at home writing right now if I hadn’t had that helmet on. I love not having a debilitating concussion, that is pretty sweet. I love that we had a great day and that the two on our team who hadn’t curled before, enjoyed playing. I love that we laughed a lot. I love that I am still alive.

Today I love that tomorrow is Sunday and I may just sleep in a lot. I love that I am not really needed for anything tomorrow, though there are things I could do if I wanted to. I love that Sundays are great days if you need a lazy day. I love that I think I need a lazy day because I haven’t really had a lazy day in a rather long time. I love that I have memories of lazy days from when I was a kid and they were usually rather energetically engaged in, they just rarely accomplished much of anything. I love that my go to type of day is a busy one, but I’m fully prepared to invest myself in a lazy, lazy day.

Today I love writing while people nearby are having fun and laughing, love how it makes my house a happy place to be. I love that we ate well today and really enjoyed our day. I love that my arms are very sore and I’m thinking that there is just enough strength left in them to finish writing this post and get it published. I love iced croissants, with chocolate, and fruit. I love carbs when I’m doing things that are physical.

Today I love drinking my coffee while I contemplate my helmet and ponder the idea that it is probably time for a new one, right?

Today I Love Finally Writing

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.
