Today I Love a how Easy It Is To Sleep In

Looking out on an easy day

Today I love how easy it is to sleep in at the cottage. I love how easy it is to fall in love. I love how easy it is to stay in love with the right person. I love that love is easy and comfortable. I love how easy it has become to find things I love. I love how easy my life has slipped by thus far even when the living of my life was not so easy. I love how easily I’ve come to terms with the hard parts because time is the best friend and the greatest salve for wounds incurred by living. I love that an easy rain has just begun outside my window in the last few minutes. I love how easy it was to drift back to our spot on the shoreline this morning after we paddled hard into the wind for over a quarter of an hour. I love the ease with which the weather can suddenly rise up and roar like it did yesterday when we neither risked paddling nor bothered to swim because the air was like water already and the day was perfect for watching a movie. I love how easy it is for me to accept the way things that I cannot change are anymore, even though I often just change things if I can and if the change is an improvement. I love easy things.

Today I love that we’ll be packing up and heading home this afternoon and getting ready for another week of workdays and routine. I love how home gives leisure to rest up from the cottage and the cottage does the same for our exertions at home, funny how that works, eh? I love that I am looking forward to heading home and getting back to work on the house and back into my kitchen. I love that I have a radio show to create this week for this coming Sunday. I love that in three weeks time I’ll be on the air live with my good friend Kailey Hawkins for a couple of hours on what would have been Summerfolk Sunday if not for the pandemic. I love that Summerfolk is still on, it’s just taking the form of a live stream radio broadcast on one evening instead of a weekend long, park venue, live event. I love that Kailey and I get to do the pre-show, possibly with call ins and definitely filled with lots of folk music.

Today I love that there’s a flock of twenty or so ducks that cruise by our shore regularly and that I was swimming and almost came up in their midst. I love the fuss they make when they see my trying to be one of them, they make me laugh. I love that there is an otter or something otter-like living near us also. I love that we have frogs and crayfish and fingerlings and turtles and fish and many different kinds of animals that wander through at different times of different years.

Today I love drinking coffee while I write about the things that are so easy to love, like life, easy to live and easy to love and easy all around.

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.
