Today I Love Being Happy With Myself

Where does it go?

Today I love being happy with myself, with my choices, with my life. I love that yesterday someone I love gave me a flower. I love that today I found out that it is a Beltane tradition to leave flowers for people and so it was a rather timely coincidence. I love that there are always more new things to learn in life and I’m happy to learn all I can. I love that I have noticed that there are two kinds of comments people can make, negative or positive. I love the positive comments that abound in the world. I love keeping myself busy and I especially love how much I care about those in my life that I love. I love that I no longer care what others think of me so much, a nice side effect of having had a couple of heart attacks, oh well. I love that I continue to constantly take stock of my opinions and beliefs and change those that don’t fit with being a caring human being. I love that I have not stopped moving forward despite the health setbacks I’ve had in my life, bring it on, I say. I love life so much that I will be sad to realize it is over if I get that opportunity before I go. I love that I don’t intend to face that for a good long while yet. I love that I am still hoping to make it to one hundred and ten years old, and that makes me just past middle age.

Today I love cooking Saturday morning breakfast on a one burner hotplate, the challenge is fun and the result was okay. I love that we have enough eggs to last us a little while, though our stash took a pretty hard hit from breakfast. I love that we ate onions, mushrooms and tomatoes in our omelette and that reminds me of the days when I used to post the omelette du jour on Facebook and that was so fun. I love that I would do that still if I hadn’t changed my breakfast to oatmeal for the sake of my damned heart. I love that though my heart is broken it is still working fine.

Today I love that the coffee is so good this morning that whole cups full of the stuff just seem to disappear on me in the blinking of an eye. I love that I cut several new holes in the walls over the last few days and while the love of that may be isolation related the plan to do so was always in place and sanctioned by the household authorities who hold sway over such things. I love that I will be patching those holes in the next week or so, especially the big one in the kitchen.

Today I love drinking really good coffee, like this cup right here that … I swear that thing was full a minute ago!

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.
