Insomnia and gratitude

Yes it’s silly o’clock and I’m wide awake. A couple of days ago you’d have got a blog post telling you how wonderful melotonin is. I had two eight hour sleeps because of it. Alas it was too good to last and here I am wide awake.

This time I’m not worrying or anxious for once. I’m mulling over my wonderful day. I can’t believe that Jacintha went to all that trouble for me. I’m well and truly humbled. I don’t think I’ll ever get over it. For someone outside my family to go to such lengths has me speechless….and it’s a lovely feeling.

It’d be an even lovelier feeling if I could sleep too. I have counselling later today so I’m probably thinking about that too. It doesn’t upset me but it does make me take a long, hard look at myself and that’s not always easy.

Anyway I’ll say goodnight or good morning depending on which side of the pond you are on xxx

  1. Good evening my friend, I’m glad you got a couple of good nights sleep. I thought I would share a little something I found out about myself on my journey…..when I get excited about something- a trip, enjoying the singing, having a great workshop- or something wonderful a friend does for me- like your friend did for you- my body can not tell the difference between fear and excitement, and more often then not I get a restless night, because the body cant tell the difference and thinks we need to be alert- no matter how often I yawn. The fact that you are not stressing about this being awake, is a huge step- make yourself a tea, read a book, or write a blog. Great work and you are not alone in this. Hope counseling goes well, I have a session with my therapist tomorrow also 🙂 I’m looking forward to discovering more. Take good care of yourself ❤

    1. That makes such a lot of sense about the body not knowing between stress and excitement, it’s certainly a similar feeling physically. It’s kind of hard to get my head around things when people are so kind to me.

      1. Hopefully in time you will be able to see the wonderful things in yourself, that others see in you, and eventually, you will be able to accept such gifts with an open heart ❤ I'm still a work in progress…:)
