I don't know what it is but lately I have had the hardest time getting to sleep, even more than normal. It's a little frustrating. I can't get my mind to quit. I just lay and think about everything: to-do lists, shopping, projects, unfinished projects, stresses of life and so on. It takes me a while to wind down. So maybe if I just write what I'm thinking I'll be able to fall asleep (don't worry I have cute stuff to blog about Naomi, so this will only take a moment).
I either have really good days or really bad days, nothing in between. And throughout those days I have really good moments and really bad moments. It's like a continuous roller coaster ride. I've realized that part of my problem is in those bad days and bad moments I only see the really bad. I've been trying harder to see the good in every situation, it usually takes a while but I see it...eventually. Like the other night when Naomi was grumpy as could be, I was trying to get her ready for bed and before I could get her pull up on her for the night she ran out of the room. Normally when she does that I chase after her more out of anger and she laughs and runs and I get more frustrated. But this time I finally just let her run around and giggle, and I realized how much I love when she laughs and that she only thinks we're playing a game. It really did make the bad moment not seem so bad.
This definitely cleared my mind, so I'm off to dream land. Thanks for patiently reading through my ramblings :)
