Can’t Sleep? Maybe you are NOT living #TuesdayTakeaway

Happy Tuesday!

Today I contemplated what would I post for a Tuesday, taking a Mad Libs approach to guide me to the answer.

Tuesday ______________ (Tidbit… Tangent… Takeaway… Takeout…)

Today’s  Tuesday Takeaway is a quote by Michael Xavier.

Quote Michael Xavier
Quote: The reasons we can’t sleep at night are usually the same reasons we don’t truly live during the day. Michael Xavier

Many of us, myself included, spend countless nights staring at the ceiling attempting to turn our mind off.  Restful nights are few and far between. I think about  my day, family, friends, interactions, work and try to rationalize situations.

Our society is more connected than ever before, notifications from Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram and the never-ending Email.

My question for you… when you were a child what kept you up at night? For myself, it was thinking about school the next day, will I forget my book bag and would I be bullied. Looking back on middle school and high school, I have no reason to return. I have kept in contact with the people who made a difference in my life, the rest is water under the bridge.

Challenge: When you crawl into bed tonight take a moment to give thanks for air in your lungs.  Give thought to one thing you will do tomorrow to celebrate being alive. After all, each day when you wake up is a good day.

Peaceful Slumber,

Douglas
