BLOGGER TEMPLATES AND TWITTER BACKGROUNDS

Flip, flop.

I've told myself that I should try and blog everyday, even if I don't have anything very interesting to say. Sometimes, if I happen to be on my computer and something pops into my head, I blog about it. I just think it really helps to write, no matter what you write about. It's a bit cathartic to get your thoughts down on paper... uh, on screen?

I used to have a terrible time sleeping. I mean, I would literally lay in bed for hours, tossing and turning, with thoughts zooming around in my head. I would worry and analyze and over-analyze things that I had no control over in that moment in time while laying in my bed, but I would think about them anyway. When morning came, I couldn't drag myself out of bed on time most days because I was just plain exhausted from all the thinking and tossing and turning. It was not good.

And then I remembered reading somewhere that writing down your thoughts can really help this. So I started to do that... I would record on my Myspace blog, on paper, on a Word document. And ya know what? The tossing and turning stopped. I could sleep again! I could get up in the morning! Before that, I couldn't remember the last time I could just lay down and be out in several minutes. I would envy people who could do that! I had no idea what it was like. And even though I don't necessarily get my thoughts out every night now, it really trained my brain that, when my head hit my pillow, it did not mean it was time to run wild. It was time to pray, Praise God, thank Him for all that he did for me that day- and then it was time to sleep.

And sleep I do! There are times now that I don't even remember dalling asleep because it happened so fast. And I can get up at 6 Am and have the energy to teach 7th graders all day. It is wonderful!

Speaking of my 7th graders, have I mentioned lately how cool they are and how much I adore them? I was blesse with such a great group of kids. They rock!

that's really ironic that you would blog about something like this. i'm watching Fight Club and the main character can't get to sleep at night until he cries first. it's the same cathartic idea. i'm glad that putting your thoughts on screen can help you in that way. i should try it too!

You not being able to sleep reminded me of Lee, a character in a book called Honest Lee. He would think over and over about things and would literally get no sleep at all. It stopped when he started unleashing his thoughts and being more honest with people, hence the title. I reccommend the book, it's very original.
