Today I’m grateful for the lack of sleep I got yesterday – the exact opposite of the day before.
I’m grateful for this because it shows me, once again, that what I do matters. I didn’t sleep well because I didn’t go to bed well – I didn’t do those things before going to bed that help me to fall asleep and to sleep well.
Today I’m grateful for the sleep that I got last night.
I’ve always had trouble getting to bed and going to sleep. Since I’m still a man-child, when evening comes I never want to go to bed, but last night I was able to get myself to work in an evening bookend (as Brian Johnson calls it) and hop in the bed at a decent time. Of course, I wasn’t perfect about it – I still played on my phone and had the TV on, but I told myself that it didn’t have to be perfect. And I shut it down at a decent hour, and ended up getting 7-1/2 hours of sleep. And I’m grateful for the whole process, imperfection and all.
