You’re on your way home, very tired and sleepy. Just another day at work or school and now you just can’t wait to get home and throw yourself on that cozy bed of yours!
But wait! If you’re like me, you probably can’t. As soon as you arrive home and it’s getting late, guess what? You start feeling energized! You start to feel good, euphoric even! All sorts of thoughts hit you! Maybe you should paint your walls in purple. Maybe you should take a long bath and meditate. Or maybe you feel like painting, reading. Anything really, as long as it’s not sleep. And how could you sleep while there’s so much to be done and it’s feeling so great.
You feel the tiredness but it’s in the background. The euphoric feeling is the main attraction, like a stain on the background. Just like when two main colors mix to become another one, the energy/good vibe plus tiredness makes everything better!
That’s not all. During the night you can be at peace. You’re alone with yourself and your thoughts. It makes you feel in control! Everyone else is asleep, but not you. Isn’t that powerful? I doubt there’s anything that can make you feel more in control than the feeling that you’re the last man standing!
I think nights are like bath for the soul if you know how to use them!. Have the courage to go out for a walk in the middle of the night. And you’ll fall in love!
But like any coin, it has two sides. Waking up early in the morning is almost impossible. It’s a small price to pay for being able to be yourself, create for yourself, and enjoy life.
All you night owls around here! I salute you! Keep on going! The enemy is strong. He wants us to believe that the night is for sleep and the day for chores! He is stealing what is ours by right and wants to replace it with something unworthy! Don’t give up! Embrace the night and never leave her again!
