Full of Energy And Can't Sleep

Updated on June 21, 2020

How To Understand And Accept

It's my own fault

I was tired and went to bed at nine

Only to wake up at two A.M.

Well rested and eager to start my morning

Every day we have things we have to do

Go to work and earn a living

Not just a paycheck

Because money alone doesn't make me happy

The satisfaction of a job well done

Gives me the push out the door

Even on the days that I want to stay home

Chores around the house to make everything nice

Then there is a longer list of things we want to do

Starts with our dreams and ambitions

Then we can add in our fantasies

Life moves along at a strange pace

One we can neither predict nor control

My life falls right in between both

I have to stay organized and propel forward

Making myself happy and at the same time always reaching for a higher purpose

Creating new ways of helping people

That gives me the most satisfaction

Finding bits of joy where it may be

Like chocolate chip bits

Sitting on my shelf

Begging to be eaten

So sweet and yet so inviting

That you never seem to get enough

As a new day opens up

Like a can of peanuts when you pull off the cover

You hear a pop

The smells the sights

They look so good

Only time will tell

How good this day will be

We have to live it

Appreciate it

Share it the best we know

In so doing

We experience all the good there is not just in one day

But every day after and throughout the world

Sometimes we see and other times we hold a blind eye too

The best part is we all do it so remarkably

Everyone is so unique in their own way

In a cookie-cutter world where certain things never change

I am off to create some fun and shake up my little corner

Like a rattle that I have only seen in movies

The sounds you are about to hear are real

The sounds have been written not copied

To protect the innocent

Rat a tat, tat

Rattle and roll

Rattle and more rattles

To see where it goes

      John Hansen It is nice to see other people's struggles then I have less of a burden on my shoulders instead of thinking it is all mine. I have heard misery likes company. I think when we have problems no matter how small we look to solve them. If we learn to open ourselves up to limitless possibilities then if we are fortunate enough we can tap into other people's lives where they can also express their life's issues also. It can be a roller coaster ride. The lows can seem like we are in a deep hole and can't find ourselves out. Then the highs are so incredible we feel like we are in a rocket in outer space. Many people find a balance. Until we reach that balance we may have to struggle a bit. Sometimes one problem leads to another. My comments on all my stories have and always will be a catalyst to driving me in a good direction. Sometimes the littlest struggle becomes a tough spot where we have to work it out. I didn't want you to think I forgot about you. It is the farthest thing from my mind. My mind drifts from place to place. I let it go because it gives me so many creative thoughts. The downside is it can be a very challenging time. Thank you for all your comments. This time it took me a longer time than usual to respond. All is good here. I hope you and your family are all doing well. Happy Sunday.

      Chatra Ram When I get up too early it throws my whole day off. When I am tired later and want to sleep I have no time. Luckily, it doesn't happen too often so I deal with it when I can. I can't imagine what people do that have insomnia. I know they have medicine for that but I think it could only mask a greater problem. It is always so nice to see your comments. You lift me up and push me along. I hope I may do the same for you. Thank you so much and may today start off great and continue all day forward.

      Gyspy Rose Lee I have been so off the wall with personal life changes, work, and business coming back. It took me the longest time to sit back down and respond to so many lovely comments. I would read them every day but no time to give each one proper response. Going to the beautiful beach and smelling the fresh air will only bring you closer to nature and help in your thoughts and dreams. For me, it clears my head and helps me stay focused. Some people use coffee I use a good helping hand of nature. Thank you so much for being patient. We all struggle at different times. It not only pulls us together but bonds us forever. Have a beautiful Sunday.

      Lately, with the weather getting warmer and the season rolling into summer by the early morning light I often cannot sleep anymore and just have to get up. I am bound and determined to do something good for myself this summer like getting out to the beach more often and getting all that fresh ocean air.

      Yes, if I go to bed early I can guarantee I will also wake at 2 or 3am and can’t go back to sleep. Interesting write, DreamOn.
