It is Saturday morning when I am writing this. This morning I woke up pretty early at 7 A.M. after a really good night of sleep. I woke up feeling great. I went to the store to buy some birthday gifts for my dad, his birthday is next week. I also had to buy new headphones for myself. Two hours later I still feel pretty good. Okay, there is a voice in my head who tells me there is no reason to feel good and be happy. But today I am not listening to that voice.
This week was full of ups and downs and I realized I was not in control of how I was feeling. I made a to-do list for the whole week and that really motivated me to cross every single item off the list. It helped me to stay motivated and work on my dreams every single day. I am finding out what brings me joy and what works for me. I realized that I really need a good night of sleep to feel good. Which means I have to stop looking at any screens at night. So I’ve been reading a lot more this week. I mean, I have to do something before I go to bed. And power naps are awesome as long there are no longer than 30 minutes long. Apparently, I am one of those people who have enough energy in the morning and evening but not in the afternoon. Power naps help with that, I realized that yesterday. I had a terrible night of sleep, I took a power nap and I was feeling amazing afterwards.
If I am feeling good like this, I am more productive. Instead of wanting to go to bed, I prefer to do something. I am happier. I am more patient. I think I am a better person when I am like this. So it is not only better for myself but also for the people around me.
I really hope that this feeling lasts. I know there will be moments that I will feel less awesome, but if I can feel like this the majority of the time it will be worth it. And everyone deserves to feel like this
