Yes insomnia can be enjoyed. I know that sounds like a off the wall statement. For most of my life I have had sleep difficulties. A sounds night sleep has always been a luxury to me. What comes naturally for most people is often an elusive torture for me. Since I am one who doesn’t want to depend on medications, I have endured many nights of tossing and turning. Its especially galling when one is around others who are fast asleep. Few sounds are as irritating to me as someone snoring away nearby when I can’t get my eyes to close. Hopefully these modest words can maybe help those in similar situations. I have a tendency to wax poetic. Bear with me kind reader. I have come to view the hours not sleeping as my own personal time. Its time to muse and reflect. With the daylight distractions gone, I can focus on what’s good for the soul. I usually leave the computer and TV off. No need to be reminded of the daytime. It will be back soon enough. In the early AM, I can let my mind go to anyplace it wants. No one around to tell me to get to work. No criticisms or judgments. None of the of the daytime stress and anxiety. I can pretend and fantasize uninterrupted. I can listen to the harsh howling winds of winter or the gentle cooling breezes in summer. I can walk the darkened streets, hearing my footfalls gently echo off the silent houses. If it’s a clear sky, I take in the moon, planets and stars. I travel to the distant galaxies and solar systems. For a few brief moments, the universe is mine. No one interferes. No one can take these moments away from me. They are mine forever. As I have said I well know the torture of not sleeping well. I have learned to make the most of the long slow hours that never seem to end. I guess what I am trying to say is to make the most of ones time,no matter what the hour. It all ends too soon. Kind reader I hope you sleep well. If not,get up and enjoy yourself.
