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.
