365 Letters to Myself

September 28th, No sleep...

So frustrating when I have one of those, terrible, no good sleep nights. Though I can adapt with little effect for one day, of course, it is felt and by dinner time – I am ready to call it. But it is too early, must hang on another few hours, which could be roulette and cause it all to happen over again.

There’s no 100% science to the why... I fall asleep for sound 30-60 minutes, and then wake up and struggle to get back to sleep. Is it a full moon, or close to one? Could be my age. I do have a mind that can be hard to shut off. Strong possibility my routine, which I do not seem to want to do much to change. Because there are just enough days all is fine, and I determine it’s ‘one of those things to deal with’. Here lies the opportunity.

I am reminded of traveling to Asia, Europe and how I dealt with it. I was so fortunate my body clock adjusted well to travels. But now and then, especially Asia, I’d find myself lying awake, trying the trick I still use... praying over and over. Repeating the affirmation, “I am asleep”. Occasionally the ‘soothing sounds’ - my go to, the ocean waves! The goal – let my body rest...even if I struggle to get my mind to. Eventually, I will get enough to successfully get through the day.

Hmmm, A good night's rest …day 74!

Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
