Today I Love When Things Work Out

Getting ready to bake

Today I love when things work out like when I went to make banana bread and discovered that I had exactly enough of one ingredient and a tablespoon more, that was close. I love that today is one of those days where I am swamped with things to do, the list doesn’t look long but several of the things on it are big time-using items like, “make banana bread for the bonspiel!” I love that today is another soft winter day. I love that I’m somewhere near day ten, give or take, of getting my activity goals of an hour of physical activity and over 6000 steps and I’m feeling so much better than I have felt in a whole long bunch of months. I love that over the last three days I’ve been down in a bit of a deep dark hole but I’m definitely coming out of it now. I love that writing today I love helps me with my struggles when I am in fact struggling and makes the times when I struggle much fewer and farther between. I love that a lot of changes are about to happen in my home and those changes are not bothering me at all, which is lucky because I’m pretty sure I instigated the bulk of them and the ones I didn’t instigate I rather think I caused the opportunities for so it will all be my fault, ha ha.

Today I love that so far, I am on top of this day and it’s long list of crazy busy activities. I love that I am catching the things that need to be fixed or accounted for and taking care of them on the fly. I love that so far I’m on track and focused reasonably well for a guy like me. I love that the laundry is rumbling away, the ingredients for baking are slowly coming up to room temperature, the plans for this week’s meals are gradually coming together and the world seems to be a reasonably bright and cheery place for a cloudy old Tuesday. I love that this Tuesday is moving forward steadily.

Today I love baking. I love that when I was nine years old I won first prize in the youth baking contest at the fall fair and then retired from the field of competition undefeated. I love that I have baked all of my sober life. I love that I’ve been sober for 36 years and counting. I love that that is a long time to want a drink and not take one and that makes me one determined person.

Today I love sipping coffee and planning my day of busyness while I prepare myself to help things work out, and work out perfectly.

Today I Love When Things Work Out

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.
