Here we go...

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

An article I just read included a discussion on the importance of getting enough sleep. This is totally something I struggle with. My nighttime, after everyone else is in bed (hubby included -- and I know this a whole other issue) is my time. I feel such a sense of...relief. Nope not peace, or quiet, or stillness or any of those other good word. Relief. I made it through the day without killing anyone. I can finally not have to listen to bickering or negativity. I can do what I want without feeling like I should be doing something else. I don't have to be anything for anyone. I can just be. I'm so relieved. This is not a positive state really; I'd rather say that I feel peaceful and just enjoy the quiet. But in reality I stay up way too late because I feel so relieved to be at this place and I don't want to go to bed because then it all starts again. So...changing my internal dialogue. I'm going to go to bed NOW because:

Tomorrow is a new day, honestly with lots of new opportunities.
I get to really start this journey to taking care of myself with healthy food choices.
I will enjoy the day more if I'm well-rested.

Over time, I will no longer feel relief so much as peace. That's what I want at the end of each day...peace...and quiet. :o)

    Sounds like our lives are similar in a lot of ways. I really struggle with sleep and have been up all night the last two evenings. Hoping to make it in bed by 11p tonight though, and wishing you sweet dreams as well.
