First the for of exhaustion means it is easier to fall asleep and even back to sleep after being woke by my daughter. My brain simply does not have the capacity to come up with things to think about to keep me awake.
While the fog causes some confusion, it also brings laughter. Things seem a lot funnier when I realize how simple the concept is that I was trying to understand. Plus jokes are a lot funnier and my husband has plenty of those.
My sleep has been deeper when my head hits the pillow as my body tries to catch up. Which leaves a little disorientation when my daughter cries out but it makes it easier to fall back to sleep too. The catch is trying to be sure I am back in my bed!
I'm grateful for the benefits of this brain fog. I'm grateful to know I am on my way to catching up on sleep. I'm grateful for laughter and humor to get me through the day. I'm grateful that I have broken the cycle of anxiety and am returning to balance. I'm grateful for a loving and understanding family. And I'm grateful to keep my patience as my daughter copes with all the changes in her life and reaches out for a little extra comfort.
Have you ever felt you were in a fog? What were the benefits for you? What are you grateful for about your current state?
May today encourage us to embrace where we are in the journey. May we look for the positive in each situation and move forward with hope. Have a beautiful day!
