MONDAY Chat … My First Time

Hello to all my lovely people, and Welcome to the blog!

If this is your first time, I’m glad you stopped by, and I hope you consider subscribing. If your already part of the family … Welcome back.

No Podcast today … but I can explain (lol)!

How is everyone doing this Monday?  I hope you had a great, productive weekend, and remember we can do this.  Stay positive, stay safe, be well, and keep your head up.

“In peace, I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.”  + Psalm 4:8

I know you read that title, but technically this is my very first time..(pause for effect/lol) posting a round-up of my Sunday chats.  But wait there’s more! Ok ok, I have to be just a little bit silly this afternoon.

Last night brought me no sleep. It’s strange how things we take for granted things that I’ve dealt with in the past have come back full circle.

A Little Backstory

Circa 2006 I experience a few months of Insomnia.  For weeks on end I could not sleep, so my doctor put me on Ambien.  It was like dope, that left a horrible burn in the back of my through, but it put me out.

I didn’t like the fact that I would need this pill for the foreseeable future just to be able to sleep so I got on a better diet, exercised more and I was able to fall asleep on my own.

My sleep habits changed over the years as I got older.  If I’m excited about something I can’t sleep, the day before travel I don’t sleep, and like last night. No sleep.  I took my gummy’s, got in bed with my YouTube, and sleep was upon me.  Then my cat (because she announces herself every time she gets on my bed woke me up, but I wasn’t truly sleeping.

No Sleep

I then pulled out my sleep arsenal … turned on a black and white movie, turned that off it’s 2 am.  Played my sleep sounds list on Tidal, it’s 3 am.  My cat again it’s 4 am.  I think I finally dozed off between 5:30 and 6 am but at 7:30 am was awakened to the sound of my daughter stepping in poop. Sigh… it just wasn’t happening.

So I exercised, showered, ate, started work, and two loads of laundry and here I am.

This is why I’m bringing you a round-up today.  I never like to totally flake on posting because I feel guilty.  This blog is my baby, so I figured I would round up my Monday Chats for 2020 from January – March.

When I look back at these posts what I see is harder times, laughter, and leaving things in the past.  I see growth, I see faith in simple things and a willingness to be better and be closer to God, and I can’t be mad at that.  Some things are harder to look at than others, but it’s therapy and it’s on a page.

With that, I’ll end this here.  Again … thanks for hanging with me today, and if you haven’t subscribed to Life by Wyetha, then get on it … and join the family.  I would love to have you at my virtual table … and as always. — Know Thyself —
