I want to go to sleep. Is that so bad?


It’s 10:30pm, it’s raining and the only thing that sounds good is my bed.

I’m so tired that all I want to do is sleep. These feelings are conflicting. I got home from work at 8pm, cleaned a little bit, prepared dinner and ate with my husband. It was 9:45pm when we finished eating and afterwards it was time to clean.

I just want to go to sleep. Work was not stressful, yet my mind is tired.

There is a lot I still have not finished today such as my yoga stretches AND WORKING ON MY BUSINESS.

Not working on my business is the one making me feel guilty. It’s making me feel like I am a quitter who is not strong enough to overcome her tiredness.

But then I ask myself: Maybe I really am this tired? Maybe I really do need sleep? Maybe I’m tired from trying to do it all without doing anything.

Some days I feel like a car tire spinning on iced over snow. Moving, moving but not going anywhere.

The only thought left in my head right now is: Is it so bad that I want to go to sleep? Will moments where I choose sleep over forcing myself  to stay awake be defining to my success?
