Today I Love My Vision

new lights ready to be wired in
That looks okay …

Today I love my vision especially when I’m wearing contacts and goggles and swimming and can see the beauty under water. I love that until I started wearing goggles I thought it looked amazing under water, and then when I started wearing goggles I thought it was even more amazing and then I started wearing contacts in my goggles and I was absolutely blown away by how beautiful it is. I love wearing my contacts and being able to see clearly after 55 years of wearing glasses. I love that when I was in my twenties I was told that I would never be able to wear contacts because of my extreme prescription, and when I was in my forties I was told that I could only wear really expensive hard contacts because of my prescription, and now I’ve been told that I will always have to have reading glasses in order to work on my computer or phone, but yeah, sure, here’s some soft dailies and some soft monthlies that you can just order and away you go. I love that the big worry was whether or not I could put them in and take them out because I’m old, so far, so good.

Today I love that we are at the cottage and I’ve been getting some things done and we’re really happy with the way things are changing here since we have been letting renovations at home spill over into the cottage. I love how great the old cupboards from our old kitchen at home look in the cottage kitchen. I love that we decided to try tearing out the old cupboards that were here and putting the others in because it was one of those adventures that really did pay off in happiness if nothing else, and we both feel like the kitchen looks better and works better even though very little has changed. I love that I created a valance for above the sink and put two clip in pot lights into it and when I get the wiring changed over from the old wall light to the valance, it’s going to be great. I love that we are also bringing in a range hood that was in the old kitchen at home, that will be a nice improvement also.

Today I love that there is company coming to the cottage tonight for dinner, and tomorrow for the day, and then next week and the week after that and the week after that as well. I love that this builds on the company we had last week. I love that we have the opportunity to share this space with friends and family and though we are restricted somewhat this year, we are able to carefully manage at least a bit of socializing. I love that we are surviving with grace. I love that there is a difference between living and living well and we are living well by being happy and sharing that around.

Today I love drinking coffee while I admire my own cabinetry work, nice job, Kelly.

Today I Love My Vision

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.
