Day 351 – Sleepless night


They all say that a good night sleep does miracles. They say that if you go to bed before the rouster sings you will wake up fresh and rested before the rooster’s song in the morning. What if you go to bed after the rooster’s morning song? What if you ignored both of his signals and against all odds you are fresh and well rested? What if you worked all night and defide all the rules and kept on working again all day?

I can tell you about my “what if?”. I always said that rules are full of crap (sorry filled with joy) and the reason why I say that so often is because none of them apply to my well being or should I say “I believe I can fly!”. I know rules are good but the only reason why one should learn how things work is so that they can break them easily. You cannot break a rule if you have no idea how it’s supposed to work. It’s the same thing as saying “I don’t like fish”, although you have never tried it in your life. In order to refuse something you must learn about it first, experience it, connect with it. I know, it sounds like a lot of work, but one of the great rules is that nothing comes easy in life. I have failed to prove that one wrong until now. 🙂

To get back to my sleepless night: I feel wonderful. Maybe it’s because of the crazy amount of work that I managed to finish last night, or maybe because sometimes I just need to stay up all night and listen to the silence playing outside and inside the house. Two wonderful cappuccinos worked their magic on me later today and after another three hours of work I am ready to take a long bath and then finish up. A big bowl of popcorn will be waiting for me later in bed and if my eyes still allow it a great series that I recently fell in love with.
