Where is my energy?
I woke up this morning after an incredibly long sleep, about seven and a half hours. Funny thing is I expected a bright start to the day. I found I was tired and my back was sore, too much time lying down.
I entered the shower and realized I don’t have any energy. I wondered, how this could this be, I slept more than my usual six.
I’ve heard, a hundred plus times, from numerous people declaring they don’t have any get-up-and-go. I’d nod my head in understanding. The truth is, I didn’t fully understand, until now.
The ability to identify the loss must happen when it’s gone, when something is missing. – I’ve lost it and I don’t know when it happened. Is it a factor of age, nutrition, exercise, mental fatigue? I’m in my fifties. I don’t exercise too much. I don’t take vitamins as often as I should. In my mind, I picture an ambitious self, in action and moving forward. I ‘m writing the end of my story, editing the one I have. A new story dances in my head, waiting for the tikka tikka sounds of a keyboard. I picture myself exercising more, cooking great meals and doing many other things. When reality hits I think, not today, I’m too tired. My thoughts never match-up to my body’s ability.
I do things to revitalize my spirit: manicure/pedicures, writing workshops and retreats, time with friends and family. I have a good time, I laugh and feel I’m part of the world. Then, I’m drained like a magician who’s used his allotted magic and requires time to recuperate, refuel and become strong again.
Next step; figure out how to regain the zip, the vigor, and vitality… Maybe it will find me 🙂
But I’m not fretting, because I know it will come!
