My thoughts have been waking me up at 3 am these past days.
I wish they gave me some consideration waiting until 4 am, my normal waking hour.
My mind is always ahead of my body clock.
Sometimes he stays awake all night causing me lack of sound sleep.
Stubborn mind has trouble listening to my body.
When he needs to unload thoughts he starts a race inside my brain.
My thoughts begin circling round and round until I finally give in to waking up.
My body has no choice but to follow suit and warm up with my cup of coffee.
Sometimes I find myself calling out to my soul, “Where are you?”
As if my body needs to be rescued from my restless mind.
But my soul is nowhere in sight. She remains tucked in her quiet world.
Maybe if mind and soul met half way my body would feel relief.
The fatigue sometimes gets to me.
But more often than not, it’s the result of happy exhaustion.
Mind at work, body in school and soul calling home.
