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.
