Be Quiet

I have two wishes in my life.  One is to get more than 3 hours of sleep a night and have it a restful sleep.  It is something I have worked hard on to accomplish but so far had little success.  My other biggest wish in life right now is to shut my mind up, make it quiet, peaceful and tranquil.  Just like sleeping I have tried everything under the sun to help my mind be quiet and struggle with this too.  These are my dreams...may be strange ones for most but if I could have anything in the world these two would be it sleeping and quieting the mind.  I think I would be such a more happier content person if I could accomplish these simple pleasures in life that some take for granted.  I will keep finding ways to make my wishes come true until then its back to the drawing board to figure these out.

I have had periods like that in my life. The place where the mind races to and fro. Where sleep is but a dream, and I struggled for weeks and months to get a good nights sleep. Black Hole Sun said it best. Thats what do. Focus on my breath alone with some herbal supplements like Valerian do the trick for me.
