Have you ever had one of those nights where you can't get to sleep? Just wired to the max, mind racing, body not interested in sitting still?

That's where I was last night, a very unusual occasion for me. I usually drop pretty easily after 11.

But last night I felt like I could have gotten up and run a 6K, which would be a major miracle in my current state. I have no idea where this energy was coming from, but I certainly wasn't going to disparage it. I was grateful to experience a heightened level of energy.

But I wasn't getting to sleep in this state. What to do?


I had the advantage of feeling gratitude for this remarkable state of energy, so it was a little easier to move to acceptance in this situation. I decided to stop worrying about sleeping, and...


I accept this gift of hyperactivity.

And the release of resistance was palpable. I could feel it's release like a 100 pound weight being lifted from my body. The restriction of my chest was suddenly soft and gentle.

Acceptance. Better than NyQuil.

Comment with your experience, I want to hear...
