Day Three

We've all heard the saying, "You can sleep when you're dead." Anyone who says that with conviction must be getting enough sleep.

Most of the people I come across want more sleep. Think back to the last time you had a terrible night's sleep. Maybe you were up all night with a new baby. Perhaps you were up late working to meet a deadline . . . or pulling an all-nighter with a special someone. The why is not important; the fallout is our focus. How do you feel after one night with little to no sleep?


What happens when you have to repeat that cycle for days, weeks, months, or years? At what point will a body force itself into sleep mode? I don't know the definitive answer; only that it's a lot longer than whatever number is in your head. Sleep deprivation is torture. Anyone who has ever gone without adequate sleep for an extended period of time can attest to this fact.

I want to write more . . . but, I cannot. My bedtime tonight is 00:00 and I am cutting it close.

Let me leave you with a question to ponder:

What price would you be willing to pay for a good night's sleep? I know my answer; it is more than I had ever imagined.

Sweet dreams!! More tomorrow.
