Today I Love Happy People Who Enjoy Themselves

the bay at the cottage
That water, though …

Today I love happy people who enjoy themselves first and those around them next. I love that they have figured out that enjoying your own company makes enjoying the company of others so much easier to do. I love keeping this truth in the forefront of my mind when I am with other people. I love that it is easier to accept others when I am aware and accepting of myself. I love that for a long time I thought that considering my own character and abilities and actions while with others was a self centered thing to do but eventually I realized that we have no choice but to be ourselves and anyone who leads other people in spiritual ways will tell you to be centered so why should I not center on myself first and then from the comfort of that stance enjoy my time with other people. I love that being truly self centered does not mean being obsessed with one’s self, but rather being aware that you are, and you are there, and you are the center of your own life and spirit, and from that realization you can relax and be comfortable and show interest in others and interact and observe how you are more and you are better when you are not alone. I love that spending the day with others leaves me comfortable and relaxed and ready to continue on with my life.

Today I love that we are at the cottage for the weekend and there are cousins here and we are happily chatting without contact and enjoying the children playing by and in the water. I love that as soon as I am done writing and chatting I will be throwing myself into the water. I love that we got a pool thermometer to hang off the dock and we now know that the water is about 67 or 68 degrees here in our corner of the bay, and that is perfect for jumping into as far as I am concerned.

Today I love that I feel a little more clear headed than I did yesterday and a lot more clear headed than I did on Thursday. I love that my mind made so much fun out of the denseness that it was wading through, that it was thinking some pretty wacky things and when I shared those things in my home they were appreciated as being very funny and that pleased me greatly. I love that even when I am under the influence of anesthesia my mind keeps doing fun things for my benefit and amusement.

Today I love drinking coffee at the cottage while I write, but pretty soon I’ll be in that water splashing kids who aren’t allowed to come near me, ha ha ha.

Today I Love Happy People Who Enjoy Themselves

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.
