Man, am I tired.
Too many late nights and early mornings.
It’s one of those days where I need to get out of the house. And walk. Just feel the afternoon sun, the cool breeze, enjoy the fresh air and then…?
Because an ice-blended coffee, maybe with a bit of white chocolate fudge, will take away the tiredness.
No, scrap that. It won’t take away the tiredness but it will help me enjoy the rest of the afternoon despite the tiredness.
I always try to do what I can to transcend the unwelcome moods that come with me and my tiredness. I don’t want to be a cranky, impatient mother. So I’m doing something about it.
Let’s get out! Let’s walk!
Good idea, don’t you think? 🙂
It’s Sunday morning.
I’m sleepy because I didn’t take the opportunity to go to bed early last night despite feeling exhausted. Instead, I sat on the couch with my husband, watching movies and folding clean laundry ’til almost 2am. Sometimes it’s important. And other times I should know better.
Still, today is today. Sunday will still be Sunday, whether I’m tired or not.
Some of the best advice I’ve ever received came from my husband. On a day not so different to this one, earlier this year, I was feeling overwhelmed at the sheer exhaustion with which I was about to face my day. I kept saying “What am I going to do? I’m so tired. I’m so tired today”.
“It’s ok to feel tired”, he said.
As soon as he said those words I felt my body relax. Of course he didn’t mean it’s ok to be tired forever. Or that feeling tired is a good thing. What he meant was that I didn’t need to feel stressed about being tired and that my day needn’t be burdened by my tiredness.
Now, when ever I am feeling over tired and the stress of that thought is beginning to consume my peace, I remember those words.
It’s ok to feel tired.
Immediately my day takes a turn for the better. I can get on with it. It’s ok.
That’s how I’ll get through my Sunday. And, lucky for me, my husband is home today. So I’ll be at even greater ease.
