Sleep On It

Sleeping is essential. It just is. But sometimes getting that sleep is a challenge.

Quieting the mind when you have so much spinning inside that brain — it can be tough. Yes, I want to solve the world’s problems. I want to keep people from hurting and killing each other. I would love to stop the senseless hate.

I cannot. I also cannot heal every wound.

I can control my own actions. I can take care of those I love. I can vote. I can stand up to the injustices I see. I can walk my dog.

But many nights I cannot shut off my brain. I am a worrier. I worry about my mom. I worry about my friends. I worry about my dog. I worry about money and getting a job. I worry about tomorrow.. and the day after that. Needless to say, I do not live in the moment all that well.

So, sleep does not come easy all the time. I know I am not alone in this.

I have so much to be grateful for today.

I will be be grateful for sleep, too.
