What A Difference
That has been a recurring theme - and, once again, I am here to announce and, yeah, celebrate change. This time the change is reflected in three arenas: sunlight, sleep, and work free days. I am in love with the sunshine. I know it makes a huge difference in my attitude and life appears manageable when the sun is shining. I literally live in a fog zone, a cloud zone, and the faithful presence of the sun is not guaranteed. I wish I could paint it into the morning sky every day and let its warm energy infect my life. Not possible
A second pleasant change is the appearance of sleep in my life. I have the chance now to get an adequate nightly rest with a sweet helping of an afternoon nap. I know I feel a reduction in headaches and I can retain my sunny disposition when I am not fighting exhaustion. I am not one to laze around in sleepy mode. I go to bed at night, read for a few, slip off the light and slip away from my world within (literally) seconds. I sleep hard and undisturbed. I wake up minutes before the alarm on school days but on these days I wake up a comfortable seven or eight hours later and waste no time getting out of bed and getting on with my day. I like that. I love the early morning and I do not want to waste it drifting in and out of unawareness. And I feel awake and alive and capable of dealing with whatever life has in store for me that day.
