Today I Love My Job

reinstalling the heating unit
Today I get to supervise

Today I love my job no matter which job I happen to be doing. I love that I consider it my personal responsibility to support my community and that means all of my community, not just the people I feel are worthy of my support. I love that my kind of people are people who have human DNA so that means anyone. I love that even people who can do no better than call others names and make vague accusations with nothing more than hatred as their strength are still people I am willing to support, just not in their efforts to be divisive. I love that my first job today is writing as usual, and that my second job today is helping get a crew working on my climate control in the house which needs to be done before winter sets in here in the northern hemisphere, ha ha. I love that I have to go out and get some things for the further redecorating of my house, stuff for drywalling and for moving a low voltage thermostat, you know, the easy stuff. I love that I am working on the subflooring in the last room of the house, though it is the biggest room I think, and certainly the simplest of the rooms with only two large doorways and no extra weird corners that one finds around stairwells and closets. I love that the drywall holes are all patched now and it’s mud and corners time.

Today I love that I can see the end of this in sight, and though there are still many little things to do yet and it’s likely that they will drag on through the summer, I can live with those things. I love that I have some reading to do and some grass to cut this weekend. I love that I have some radio show to write and a few ideas for the show that I think I’m going to enjoy. I love that I’ll soon have to write a blog post for my writers’ group blog, ’cause it’s my turn, and the blog was kind of my idea so I need to start thinking about that too.

Today I love feeling my way through life, one corner at a time. I love that there is no manual for living and we’re all just finding our own way, though some of us are clearly driving too fast and missing a lot of the turns, and I’ve been guilty of that a few times. I love people who suddenly realize that they could do things better, be better, encourage better and then benefit from that better coming back to them.

Today I love drinking coffee while I write and supervise renovation heating installations.

Today I Love My Job

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.
