Reclaiming Your Vitality - The Journey


Reclaiming Your Vitality - The Journey
Day 11 - And on the 11th Day She Rested

Ok . . . you read my FB Fan page you know that today was a rough day for me.  I woke up tired and angry.  I mean really pissed off.  I wasn't angry at anyone or anything in particular - well there was the cat - but over all it was a general feeling of anger.

I hadn't gotten enough sleep over the past two nights.  And as I write this I am starting to see a pattern.  Sleep is a pretty important commodity that we often take for granted.  It seems like we tend to give up sleep first, then exercise, then decent food, on our decline.

I am proud to say that I did eat well today, but I was definitely not myself.  It was hard to concentrate and my body felt sluggish.   It was this general feeling of low energy that had me not be 100% present to one of the most important days in my life and my daughter's.  Her promotion ceremony was today.  She graduated 5th grade.  And while I wanted to run up and down the isles with my camera, I just didn't have it in me to do it.  Don't get me wrong, I took pictures, and I was present, but I just didn't feel that joie de vie that I would have like to on a day like today.


I am learning that vitality is about the totality of your life.  It's about taking care of yourself so you can enjoy what's important.


Lesson learned today, sleep is not an option, it's a necessity for good health.  and on that note, I think I'll turn in early.  Nite all.
