Good morning from The Potting Shed! Even though I am a hopeless insomniac … have been for years … I do love getting up early in the morning. It’s my favourite time of day. I used to worry about being tired from lack of sleep but now I know it really doesn’t slow me down so I get up, make a cup of tea and toast and settle in to read my favourite books and blogs. I’ve learned to love the middle of the night and to embrace the extra 3 hours I get from being wide awake between 1am and 4am. And this morning in the wee, small hours before snuggling back into bed for a precious hour more of deep, relaxing sleep, I read this lovely quote on a styley blog I enjoy called Belgrave Crescent … and thought I would share it with you … in case, like many, you’ve been wondering what to do when you grow up! “An amazing thing happens when you get honest with yourself and start doing what you love, what makes you happy. Your life literally slows down. You stop wishing for the weekend. You stop merely looking forward to special events. You begin to live in each moment and you start feeling like a human being. You just ride the wave that is life, with this feeling of contentment and joy. You move fluidly, steadily, calm and grateful. A veil is lifted, and a whole new perspective is born.” — Jes Allen
I love your cheerful outlook regarding the insomnia!!… As a fellow insomniac, I’ve also realised that lying there willing sleep is no good!!
I love this quote and it makes such perfect sense!!
Happy busy week to you Maureen!
Thank you for that advise, Jes. Your roses are perfection! ~amy
