From now on you can likely expect a late afternoon or early evening post from me. That would be my guess for most of my Mondays. Letting go of my own inner expectations includes not trying to force myself into being a day person--LOL! I was born a night owl and I am not going to worry about when I sleep anymore. I've been setting alarms and wishing I was a "day person" for way too long. Not that I won't occasionally flip to earlier hours naturally, but I'm accepting the fact that I am a night person. If I need to be up for some reason or another THEN I can set an alarm.
So, how has this week gone with no alarms? Amazing! I have been sleeping longer and up less during the night (or morning--LOL!). I am not so tired that I can't move out of my chair for a few hours and am online, anyways, all morning. I may sleep till 11am or noon but I get up and feel more rested and get moving! Often not online until much later in the day because I am up, dressed, and doing my journaling at the table right off the bat. Yes, I am a little surprised by this turn of events from just letting go of expectations...and it might wear off...but I am very happy about it.
Back when all we had were phones...my friends and family all knew not to call me before noon--LOL! I guess I am back there once again. And it is not that I am necessarily up that much later but, at least for right now, I am sleeping way longer! Like last night--bed at 1:30am and woke up at 11:45am! I must really need the sleep because I've been sleeping like 9-11 hours most of the time...and only up once usually. Wow!
I am also trying to just do one (or maybe two) bigger-for-me projects a day...and to stop there...so I CAN do more the next day. That's not easy to do when even laundry counts for me--but I've been doing pretty well with it. So, it's quite a good start to this new year. I am getting more done over my days...as you will see. :)
We had snow last Tuesday!
