I know it’s not Friday, but this prompt was dear to my heart. Here’s Five Minutes of me writing on a highly overrated state – Tired.
What are you too tired to do?
When was the last time you felt truly rested?
Who would you be if you weren’t so tired?
What are you willing to sacrifice so you get the rest you know you need?
As a mother of three young children, sleep is a rare commodity. I’ve had to re-prioritize some things in the last few years to ensure I get a bit more of the precious stuff so I can be the mommy I need to be for them. After all, I’ve defined my key roles as wife, mother, and then homemaker. So, if that means dirty dishes stay in the sink while I trudge up to bed – so be it.
What could you sacrifice to earn more sleep points? I’ve learned, sometimes the hard way, what is not worth losing sleep over.
Keeping up with Facebook.
Being slow to forgive.
Leaving the living room clean.
Even — gasp — Five Minute Fridays (notice I’ve not done one in a while?)
It all comes down to priorities. Where is sleep on your priority list? Do you need to do some shifting?
