Resolutions to Sleeping Better
I have always had trouble sleeping. It began just after puberty for me and, after the long quest it took to be diagnosed, I finally identified as a person who suffers from Bi Polar type 2 disorder. This was a breakthrough for me because not only was I going to begin treatment but it was going to be a major overhaul of my general day to day life. One of those journeys was learning to sleep wiser. I will share some of the useful tools that worked for me in my kit. I also recommend having some actual tools at hand including but not limited to a power drill, stud finder as well as Hex keys and screwdrivers. It all depends on what applies to your living situation and what your means are, because we all deserve a great sleep even if we live on a fixed income.
Manifestation Diaries : The Divine Meeting Part 2
I had trouble sleeping that night, glancing at my alarm on the beside table glowing 11:11PM. Giving up at my attempt of a good nights rest I began to make a list of the things that were bothering me. Earlier at the library Caroline had greeted me politely, even after my failed attempt to scare her she invited me to join her for lunch. A persistent memory of Caroline I hold dearly is she only ever emanated kindness and grace in our times together. That half hour made me really think about my life, instead of telling me how I should live my life and what I should want out of it, which everyone hates to hear she had asked me what I had wanted. "If you listen to everyone else and are complicit with what they think you should want, you will lose your ability to make decisions for yourself. When people make decisions for you it’s easier than if you were to figure it out on your own. You will only end up miserable”. She said all this with a tone that made me respect her more, like a mother except she was never blessed with children. With that she mentioned a book she had once read, an unusual read for her because she's not devout in faith but she said it was about a spiritual journey and general life principle. "If everybody could all be just a little more supportive, patient and kind, we shouldn't be telling everyone else what is right and wrong and pass judgement, instead we need to be telling one another how much progress we've made or how they see us with positive affirmation. I see you, I think you're making an effort and you can get control back. You just have to want it, but is it what you want? Make a list of what you want, and make out each step to clarify what you need to do. When you're done you'll just have to sort it out and take it one adventure at a time". Caroline was right, I had to put in some work to try to fix myself.
