365 Challenge: Day 158 – Sleepy

Posted on Updated on

Sleepy: needing to get rest; human condition we all experience sometimes


Sometimes you have a choice. Sleep or post. Tonight I choose sleep, but I am thinking of everyone as I nod off on the couch at my little weekend away  on Fire Island.  But the 365 Daily Challenge Is Important. Today’s message: know when to listen to your body.

Sleep well, Friends. More to come tomorrow.


About Me & the “365 Daily Challenge”

I’m Jay and I live in NYC. By profession, I work in technology. By passion, I work in writing. I’ve always been a reader. And now I’m a daily blogger. I decided to start my own version of the “365 Daily Challenge” where since March 13, 2017, I’ve posted a characteristic either I currently embody or one I’d like to embody in the future. 365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life.

The goal: Knowledge. Acceptance. Understanding. Optimization. Happiness. Help. For myself. For others. And if all else fails, humor. When I’m finished in one year, I hope to have more answers about the future and what I will do with the remainder of my life. All aspects to be considered. It’s not just about a career, hobbies, residence, activities, efforts, et al. It’s meant to be a comprehensive study and reflection from an ordinary man. Not a doctor. Not a therapist. Not a friend. Not an encyclopedia full of prior research. Just pure thought, a blogged journal with true honesty.

Join the fun and read a new post each day, or check out my book reviews, TV/Film reviews or favorite vacation spots. And feel free to like, rate, comment or take the poll for each post. Note: All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them. Many thanks to their original creators.

    I am really sleepy today too. Maybe it’s the weather? The cosmos? The coming eclipse?

    Ahh, sleep. Sometimes my friend, sometimes my enemy, but always the thing I pursue!

    I took a day off the blog yesterday and today I am raring to go and writing up a storm – 2 blog posts, another book review started and a couple of character sketches complete. I’m glad you got some rest too and I’m looking forward to reading all you produce afterwards.

      Sometimes those days off are essential to success. I needed it. Maybe you did, too. Sounds like you made some progress today. I’m behind on book reviews tho! Can’t seem to motivate myself with so much writing.
      Have a wonderful weekend.

        Oh I am still behind on book reviews. I’ll probably be catching up for the next few weeks.

    Oh Jay, this has been the worst side effect of my pain… Lack of sleep. I know the opposite of your post but I wish I was sleepy… My brain hardly shuts down now… Damn…

        Either do I, but I feel like you will learn something valuable from it, maybe helpful for the future.
