1 thing i like

ok- today i'm sure that i could sit here and think of 10 things around me that i really like- but then why not think of 25 things or 50 things or a 100 things? today i'm too tired to list even 10. i just tried and came up with the most uncreative and boring list imaginable. so instead i will write about 1 thing i like:

1. being tired

i am weird. i know this. but the truth is that i like feeling tired at the end of the day. i like feeling like i accomplished something, like i worked hard, like i lived up to my potential in some way. when i'm tired, i know i'm not bored. i also like falling asleep when my head hits the pillow and not waking up 6 times a night because i'm anxious or restless or thinking too much.

and don't get me wrong, i'm not talking about the kind of drop-dead tired that comes from 10 mile hikes in the mountains or hard physical labor or even the kind of tired that comes from being overworked and over stressed.

i like to feel tired. just plain old tired. at the end of the day because it makes for a good night's rest. so now i'm off to bed.
