Today I Love Silver And Gold Mornings

the morning sky looking west
Western silver

Today I love silver and gold mornings when the dawn lights the eastern sky up brilliantly with golden fire and the western sky is a silver grey with a knife edge of night lying on the horizon. I love that there are three places in our house where I can see windows that face east and west by simply turning my head and in the early morning it is like those places have two moods that feel different but that compliment each other perfectly at the same time. I love this place I live in and the way it makes me feel to be here when I’ve just been told that I was on the edge of being in trouble with my health. I love that we are making changes to this place that will make it even more enjoyable for us in the near future. I love that I am exhausted from the things I’ve been through because only people who are alive are truly tired. I love that I am still going and doing things, love that I love life, love that I get to keep living it for some time yet. I love that I will not slow down until I have to and even then I’ll likely be pushing it all the way. I love that when I’m physically too tired to do things I can still tire myself out even more by reading or watching TV because I literally experience what I take in and physically react to it, I’m a little weird that way.

Today I love that tonight we curl again and my cardiologist confirmed that I am allowed to do that even when I was still in the procedure room on Tuesday. I love that I’ve waited a week for this and I’m happy that I can still go and do it. I love that my team includes my partner this draw and I know she’ll be watching out for me and that is going to make me smile. I love that we are in a league and we know our opponents somewhat and we will have fun today.

Today I love mango and strawberries in my porridge. I love that we have started getting organized and ready to make a big mess in my house in preparation for all the changes that are to come. I love that I feel tired but rested, not sure how that works, but there it is, and I’m prepared to deal with it.

Today I love drinking coffee while the construction crew starts making noises and I finish up my writing on this gold and silver morning.

Today I Love Silver And Gold Mornings

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.
