Last night I consider what a wise mentor once told me: “Sometimes your most spiritual activity might just be taking a nap.”
I’m so tired I feel sick. I’m so tired my head hurts and everything in the world seems wrong and terrible and nothing will ever feel right again. I hate everything, and my whole entire life is falling apart.
My husband reminds me that after a good night’s sleep, I’ll feel refreshed again.
The funny thing about getting a good night’s sleep is that it works. When life feels overwhelming and impossible, maybe we just need a good night’s sleep. I think about what happens to my children when they don’t get enough sleep. The simplest tasks (putting on shoes, brushing teeth, buckling a seatbelt) dissolves them both into puddles of tears.
Go to bed, my sweet child. You’ll feel right in the morning.
Living with flair means we sleep. Call it sleeping with flair. It’s a simple challenge to take care of a simple need before we try to conquer the day.
What’s keeping you from a good night’s sleep?
