Midnight Musings

I miss those worry-free summer nights that I had just two short years ago. The night air rustling my bedroom curtains and softly brushing my hair across my cheek.

I miss not having a reason to stay up late, but I do it anyway, just for the sake of savoring the extra time. This is when I dream. This is when I smile to myself and think of all the great moments that, I hope, wait for me.
These are the moments when I try to enjoy myself; when I'm restless. It's because I'm hoping I have great things to look forward to, not because I have endless pressures weighing me down and making each breath labored and heavy.
I will ALWAYS cherish the nights that I have alone.

I will NEVER forget how to dream.

I will ALWAYS be ready for something more.

My midnight moments are all I need to get out of bed and face the next morning.

My midnight moments are all I need to remind myself to be motivated, to stay positive, and to dream of a better life for myself.

When I wake in the morning, I'm not myself. I'm someone better. Someone to enjoy - Someone to love -Someone who dreams of a better tomorrow.

My old self lives forever, within a single night.

I love quiet contemplation time, too. Lately, tho I'm lucky to get to sleep before dawn, n always too tired to do what I'd like in the dreams...

Everyone needs to dream! Regrouping to move on helps...

That's it Jen. Those are great affirmations, I think I might just borrow one or two, if you don't mind.

Scott - I'm trying!! I'm really, really trying!

Snags: If I could function daily with only two hours of sleep - I'd do it! I love being up late at night. It invigorates me! Is that strange?

WW: I'll sleep when I'm dead.

Mr. A: I don't mind at all!! ;o)

I really like this post Jen....It was beautiful. I would love to dream again. And I can see what you mean about the quiet time for your midnight moments...I question them sometimes, but I still see what you mean. Thanks for sharing.

I have moved my page, again...I don't really have a choice in my situation right.....
Either way I wanted you to have it incase you wanted it.

You go, chickadee! Thoughts like that are the ones that keep you moving in the right direction. More power to you... and more lessons we could all take use of!

Ellen: Well, I'm trying!! Some days are worse than others, obviously. I was just in a pretty good place this weekend. Hopefully, I'll stay there for awhile! ;o)
