Day 108: Give Yourself A Jump Off Point for Perspective

by Sarah Devika Sumnauth

So today I do feel much better.  After going to bed at 7:45 (senior citizen jokes aside) I feel TONS better.  I think I was just getting run down and letting that dictate who I thought I was.  Never a good thing.

Which brings me to the reason why I think that it is so important to have low points in life.  For obvious reasons they suck, can be draining and generally make you feel like a failure - But, they prove to show you that when things are going better, and your at the top of your game, getting things done right, left and centre, that you are awesome.  I think the juxtaposition of the two is so crucial to being able to place yourself categorically in your own sense of perspective and give yourself a re-evaluation jump off point.  If you never know bad than how can you know good? 

Let it be known that I am no superhero and while productivity is my drug of choice, I will still never give up the chance to do myself a favour and go to bed early.  Beauty sleep is essential in this after all and today I feel ten times more beautiful than I did yesterday (thank god for days when you can afford 12 hours of sleep.)

So with that, take it easy people, it is Saturday after all and raining cats and dogs like nobodies business here in Tdot.  I suggest giving yourself some R&R.  If you’re heading out on the town for Halloween tonight, enjoy it, and if you’re like me and are heading to a friends house to watch scary movies and drink copious amounts of wine, enjoy that too!
