Today I Love This Sticky Sunshine

coffee in the sun
A spot of cream and a dollop of sunshine

Today I love this sticky sunshine oozing in the eastern windows and clinging to everything it touches, leaving warmth behind where ever it goes. I love these warm Spring days that make me feel like they would be all I’d need for summer, soft and easy, days that I could wrap myself up in and just lay down and nap, and since I don’t nap well that would be quite an accomplishment for a day to achieve. I love that there will be a nice walk this day and if we can manage to get out during the day time and soak in some of this sunlight it will be even better. I love that we have taken up walking every day for health purposes and it seems to be keeping my heart going and my lungs feel better because of it as well. I love that good days are healthy ones. I love that I intend to keep going because I’d hate to miss any day and this one is a perfect example of a day that would be regrettable to miss. I love that I am here and working on all the things of the day, sub floor, writing, keeping healthy, eating well, maybe some dry-walling, who knows what mischief I might get into, but I’ll get into it feet first and all in when I do. I love that there’s still laundry to be done and it will end up on the line today, it’s that great a day out there.

Today I love that in these troubling times I’ve resolved myself to dealing with only this day’s issues. I love that I have decided to stop accumulating worry and just put yesterday’s worry behind me and call it done. I love that though this morning began with the same world full of COVID-19 pandemic stuff that was such a big part of yesterday, I have realized that yesterday’s only worry was to survive yesterday and I did that so it is done and off my radar now. I love that I intend fully to survive today as well. I love that I also intend to accomplish things today so I have no time to worry about not surviving, I barely have time to figure out how to get things done. I love that the two days I was worrying most about were yesterday and tomorrow and now I’ve realized that it’s too late for worrying about one of them and too soon for the other.

Today I love that I put too much fruit in the porridge and then cooked it for too long and it’s still great. I love that we are making sense of the new kitchen and it is starting to work really well for us. I love that it started out being an improvement just by being a place where we could both work and not be tripping over each other. I love how bright and airy it is and I love all the space we have there.

Today I love drinking coffee sweetened with nothing but a tiny splash of cream and a huge dollop of sticky warm sunlight.

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.
