Replacement for Naps

Posted on Nov 16, 2012 by in Legacy | 1 comment

When Linus refuses to take a nap, like today, he instead has two hours of “quiet time” which consists of reading, playing puzzles or blocks.  I prefer the naps, especially since we both have colds.  At least he seemed to sleep pretty soundly last night.  He fed before bed and then not again until 4:30 a.m.  That break was refreshing.  I actually remember dreaming, but they were nightmares.  It could have been due to the cold medicine, being really tired, or just Satan trying to get to me when I am weak. 

For some reason, listening to music always brings me back.  I feel more whole and like myself when I hear music.  It speaks to me and heals my soul.  As a writer, the lyrics are very clear to me.  I love the beat of certain songs, but the words are what really get me.  I have many songs I have written, but I don’t write them as much anymore.  It is hard to make the time and explore what’s going on in myself.  I miss that journey.  I wish I could go into my heart more often.  Getting to how I am actually feeling is what is missing from my day.

  1. I suggest that you keep a journal- which only requires a few minutes, but still allows you to express your feelings
