I came across this quote the other day and couldn’t help but add it to Wordy Wednesday. I have become somewhat of an insomniac lately. I stay up for hours and I wake up constantly throughout the night. I have had a lot on my mind stressing about the future, friends, family, you know… the usual. For whatever reason it always happens while I am trying to fall asleep. That is when the craziest thoughts pop into my head. No matter how absurd they always seem to keep my mind racing, preventing me from catching some zzzs. However when I notice how late it is, that causes me more anxiety and I think, “Wow I really need to get some sleep,” leading to more stress. It often feels like an endless cycle until I somehow dose off for an hour or two.
When I saw this quote I knew that it was perfect timing. Instead of letting all of my questions and stress get to me I need to stop, breathe, and think about all of the blessings in my life. It can be so overwhelming when tons of thoughts weigh down on you. Instead of letting these late night thoughts get to me I am working on taking a step back and putting everything into perspective. It is normal to worry, but rather than trying to count sheep I will focus on the many blessings in my life. Thinking about the positive always helps to eliminate the negative. I hope you all are catching a few more zzzs than me, and if not, take this tip from Bing Crosby!
