Today I am grateful for peaceful sleep…
I always thought that sleep was overrated until I didn’t sleep well for more than a year.
I teach about the importance of sleep, go figure, but I didn’t sleep. Couldn’t even.
My brain in grieving mode was on overdrive.
Before grief I was used to being awakened at odd hours by machines alarming, taking care of others, and my own nightmares.
But I have been sleeping soundly lately and it is heavenly.
Today I woke up gently before the alarm clock to my dog sleeping on my pillow next to me.
My mind is clear, not foggy
…a new feeling indeed!
Instead of overthinking, I will run with it and hope it happens again.
I am peaceful.
