Some days you awake from your profound sleep only to find the energy you thought was recharging, failed, and now life feels gritty and all your actions run in slow motion.
Today I lived in my half-being, as gritty and slow motion as a day can get, thanks in part for the lack of rest, I guess.
There is no excuse. Sleeping is what I do best. I can fall asleep just about anytime or anyplace. During any movie is when I fall asleep the best. But I’m digressing and leading you down the wrong path.
What I observed throughout my hazy day were little hints that may have indicated what troubled me during my restless night. Mind you, it must have bothered only my deep subconscious since I don’t remember a thing once the lights clicked off. Of course, you know it, how soon the
hateful faithful alarm clock persistently begins to ring!
I’m not done recharging Mr. Alarm clock , sir, pleeease…ten more minutes!
Drats! And double drats!
Well, the day progressed slowly as I uncovered what may have ailed me for some time now. Like, who knew??
The dancing King and Queen knew,
no matter where you are
be it young or old
never let your age stop you from being too bold
Forget the birth years
that come and go
focus on your dreams and bury away the fears
for as C.S. Lewis once said:
You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.
I’m not sure why the image and the C.S. Lewis quote came to me today, but perhaps aging gracefully and with a purpose may have been on my mind lately. Hmmn.
Have you ever found a concern hidden after a restless or profound slumber? Did you find it helped to create either by writing or artistically, to uncover the concealed worry?
