Take a nap for naps sake!
Today is National Napping Day. We all know about finding the time to nap in the afternoon to help us feel refreshed, but most of us don’t do it. No time, doesn’t fit into our work schedule, getting kids etc. Women don’t nap! We’re too busy doing! Doing, doing, doing.
Since being left at 50, I have learned that sometimes, a nap is more than just a nap. Restarting your entire life is incredibly exhausting on many levels. Some days I have so much to do I just want to lay down and do nothing!
“In the many days since my break-up, I look at napping day in a different way. I am not napping through my life.”
When I was in the awful relationship, I was often exhausted during the day. I prayed for the sweet relief of a few moments of shut-eye. It was a way for me to escape the tumult and organize my thoughts.
In the many days since my break-up, I look at napping in a different way. I am not napping through my life. In the silent resentment of those final months with my Ex, I was so confused. I just wanted to lay down to make it all go away. Do you feel like that sometimes?
On this National Napping Day perhaps it’s time to remind yourself that taking a pause of some kind in your day is a good thing. The treadmill of remaking your life can be exhausting and if you are like me, you want your new life to be on course yesterday. Nothing is ever happening soon enough. I ask you to consider the idea that perhaps it is all unfolding as it should. That you can stop and take a pause, even in the midst of disorder. Life isn’t perfect and you don’t have to be either. Everything will look clearer after a little nap. As life twirls by, it’s up to us to hit the “refresh” button. So take a nap for nap’s sake!
We all go through major life transitions when relationships end… Through this website, I will share my thoughts as I walk the path of “New-Self” discovery. It doesn’t matter which side of 50 you are on. The real question is, Are you ready to live life? To forge a Path of Your Own Making (For a change!)? Then stop dwelling over the What-Might-Have-Beens and join me. Share your thoughts here, comment on mine, and let’s do this together!
