I cannot believe it, but I actually got 2 1/2 hours of sleep last night. At 3 am, I was pretty certain that I was going to just throw in the towel and start my day… but no, I got back into bed praying for a miracle of a couple of hours of sleep. I am blessed. I mean that in all seriousness. I was fully prepared to gear up for an exhausting day today. Granted, I will likely still be exhausted. Is 2 hours of sleep enough for the human body to maintain wellness? No. However, I have learned, through months of difficulty sleeping, that not only can I survive with less than optimal sleep, I can also THRIVE. It’s all about mindset. Right now, I can choose to feel like crap… and then act crappy all day OR I can decide that today will be a good and healthy day and move on from that mental space.
Right now, I am choosing gratitude for 2 1/2 beautiful hours of sleep!
