I typically have “off-the-charts” high energy! I get up early and go to bed late because I LOVE everything I do and want to fit in as much as possible.
While I work hard, I have learned the importance of sleep and recuperating to recharge the body and mind, allowing me to start fresh again tomorrow. On the days when I have packed in as much as I possibly can….sleep is a welcome break from the activity.
On our way home from our Camp Tanamakoon trip earlier this week, the girls were chatting and singing their hearts out one minute, then it got silent. When I looked back to check on them…this is what I saw. Three little angles sound asleep. They were “spent.” And they were doing exactly what their body needed…when it needed it…sleep!
We had an awesome visit with my brother and a calendar full of activity and meetings (my “highlight reel). The flip side of that is that I have a ridiculous summer cough. and brutal hot flashes that keep me up at night! Sleep is such a gift to me. So this afternoon, after lunch with my brother and seeing him off to the airport for his return flight to LA, we went to my in-laws for supper. Where I promptly fell asleep (for a good half of our visit).
The awesome thing was, there was NO judgment from anyone – and I got to catch up on a couple of hours of much needed sleep (which will recharge my adrenal glands LOL)!
Give yourself grace the odd day, to heal, recover and recoup, so you can jump back in and go full steam tomorrow!!! Today rest…tomorrow full steam ahead!
Today I am so very grateful for the healing powers of sleep!
Never stop believing one person can make a difference…that one person is YOU!
