Reverent Reverie

Sometimes sleep is the best medicine. No matter what happens, it’s something the body will do naturally, something that can’t be fought or resisted. Sleep tells us things as well – when we don’t sleep well, it’s because we’re worried about something, or something is bothering us without our realizing it. When bad dreams awake us, shaking and sweating, in the middle of the night, more often than not some unknown or unheeded fear is coming to light or finding a way out so as not to worry us anymore.

And when we’re tired – ah! Such a feeling. It can be awful, being tired to the bone. But viewed the right way, it can be wonderful. If you let yourself surrender to it – not even by sleeping, but just by accepting it – you may feel a languor and a calmness steal over your body in a way that is completely unique. When we’re sick, or not feeling well, our body warns us of it by making us weaker, more tired, more in need of sleep. Again, in these situations being tired can feel wonderful, a deep knowledge that crawling into bed now will help, it will rest your body and mind and make you stronger to fight the germs in you.

Truly, sleep is the best medicine.

  1. I enjoy being tired to the bone sometimes. It depends on what I’m tired from. I have always had sleeping problems but when my kids grew up and moved away, I moved into my own bedroom because my husband is a noisy sleeper and loud when he wakes up in the morning. But there is nothing like a really good, hard sleep. When you wake up groggy. That’s the best.

  2. I love how you think, how your mind workds and the positivity in your words. You defintely have talent but more so than you think or believe. Am hooked and SO glad I found your blog!
