Time Tumbling Forward Stretching Each of Us Toward the Future—Wednesday, March 4, 2020

Sometimes my mind likes to race toward the future…not that I LIKE to race toward the future,

But my mind sure does.

And it (my mind) seems to leap and tear around mercilessly

At night when I’m supposed to be sleeping.

The thoughts dipping and spreading slowly, at first, then by three in the morning

Rushing here there and everywhere

Sliding around in the old head like oil spilling out of a tipped over can

Nighttime thoughts…sigh!

Everything always looks so much better in the morning.

For then you have understanding, there are no borders; wandering thoughts can’t survive…action takes the place of worry.

From my world to your heart,

  1. Oh Linda…welcome to my world! Since my surgery in late October, I have many nights where I lay there waiting to fall asleep and don’t…and at 3 am there I am…. still awake. Ugh. Thankfully they’re not happening as often as they did…but still they happen. I’ll think of you and all those who have mentioned they have sleep problems, the next time I’m laying awake in the dark listening to my husband sleep. Take care. Hope you sleep well tonight!


  2. When I wake up during the night I pray…that usually calms me down enough to go back to sleep. Hope you find something that helps you because coping on little sleep is no fun.


  3. Learning meditation has saved me from the same approach and utter exhaustion. Iā€™m glad you found a way to deal with the leaping thoughts that works for you.
