I took the advice of my friends and finally got some good rest.

I have a lot to do, but I needed sleep much more.

When I don’t sleep, my mind struggles to make sense of even just basic things. I get all analytical, start to overthink things, and then struggle to make even basic decisions.

I started doing things I don’t normally do. I started acting in ways I don’t normally act. I started saying things I don’t normally say. In other words, I was just not me. When I finally realized it, I didn’t like it. At all.

At that point, I became a worrier.

When I don’t eat for 12 or more hours, I get ‘hangry’. When I drink, I become a goofy drunk. When I’m tired, I get giggly and goofy. When my mind gets fatigued and stressed, I become a worrier.

These are the things I’ve come to know about myself…

So I focused on getting to bed around 9pm every night, because my body won’t let me stay asleep much past 5am. With my morning routine set, I had to adjust it on the night time end.

Instead of my morning runs and WODs, I spent the mornings doing yoga, meditating, and reflecting on everything that has happened to me so far this year.

It has been… mind-blowing  amazing  crazy.

It’s amazing I haven’t had a melt down.

Discovery of my ex-wife’s infidelity, divorce, new job position, selling a house, buying a house, new people…

I just realized I just had to take time to get back to me… The happy, positive, outgoing me.

So… I did just that. I dropped everything and just put the focus on me over the weekend.  I started to ‘catch up’ on my sleep… I gave my mind and body a break and now….

I… feel… tremendous!

I’m starting to feel like myself again… It’s like a restart. I dropped everything and I know that the important things will come back, the people who care about me will return, and the stuff that never really mattered and the people who never really cared, will disappear.

It’s how it goes…

End result? I’m better now… 🙂

Ok… that’s the end of my blab – just had to get that off of my chest.

I hope you enjoy the starting up of my WODs tomorrow!

See you then.
