My Carpe Diem moments for September 9, 2013 were connecting with my friend Malika for dinner and getting over 8 hours of sleep.
My life has been really really busy lately (I’m not complaining). The last time I was in Atlanta I tried to connect with my friend Malika, however due to my schedule I only got to see her in two very brief “pass-off” meetings. Although I wasn’t feeling 100% yesterday I was able to connect with Malika for dinner. We live in society where everyone is dealing with a filled calendar and we are often running from one thing to another. Whenever I can connect in person with my friends it makes my day extra special.
Due to not feeling well yesterday I came home and got immediately in the bed. I ended up sleeping over 8 hours. I can’t remember the last time I slept 8 hours. I woke up refresh and vibrant this morning. I’ve decided that I’m going to try to get 8 hours a sleep at least 1 night a week. Sleep does the body good!
You’ve hit on two of my biggies too – relationships and sleep! Both are so important to a healthy and happy life. My goal is 7 to 8 hours of sleep a night (although since I’m still up looks like tonight will be less!).
I’m starting small…aiming for at least 1 night with 8 hours of sleep a week! 😉 CARPE DIEM
Moms are well-intentioned, but not very subtle! Enjoy your life fully–so many wonderful things await you, and until you find your soulmate (which will happen), you have the wonderful freedom to do whatever you like! What an envious position to be in! Enjoy!
Julie- I really do have one of the world’s BEST moms. I know she means well! Carpe Diem
