The Best Intentions…


A night of sleep that didn’t really happen, though it must have because at some point, I rolled over and turned off my alarm and don’t remember doing it!

I do remember the frustration of rolling over, one side to the next, seeking the elusiveness of sleep. Asking for it to arrive only to be distressed by its absence.

I do remember meditating in an effort to calm my mind — which didn’t feel very worked up so it wasn’t over-thinking keeping me awake.

I do remember reading in the hopes my eyelids would grow heavy with each word consumed.

I do remember watching How To videos on mixed media collage and other arty affairs.

And I do remember playing Spider Solitaire.

And while I know I did get some sleep, it wasn’t as restful as I had intended or wanted. Which means, this blog is short and sweet because I have to get running. The day is calling.

So, instead of words, I leave you with one of my favourite short films. I have shared it before but it is always worth revising. If you haven’t seen it, please gift yourself 20 minutes to watch it. If you have seen it before, a gift of 20 minutes is also a good thing!

Blessings on your day. May each moment expand in wonder and awe. May your heart be light, your spirit bright, may joy embrace you.

I believe in wonder. I believe we are all magnificent beings of divine beauty. I believe we can make a difference in this world, through every act, word, thought. I believe we create ripples with everything we do and say and want to inspire everyone to use their ripple to create a better world for everyone. I'm grateful you're here.

  1. What, my dear, has kept you up all night? Are you worried about something?


  2. Oh, I’ve had a few of these nights. Age? Stress? TV that leaves me unsettled? Unsure. Does make you crazy the next day. I hope you get rest! Will watch the film when I have time.


  3. I hope you have a better sleep tonight. go to bed early! ๐Ÿ™‚


  4. Wishing you a comfortable and restful sleep this evening, after what has hopefully been a fulfilling and satisfying day. I definitely know my share of insomnia, and am always so happy and grateful for a good night’s sleep. May we both enjoy that tonight! ๐Ÿ™‚ Gina


  5. Sleep is something I have no problem with even when I am worried which isn’t often I can still sleep. Hope you gets a good night sleep soon
