I’ve got these habits that I cannot

I’ve got these habits that I cannot break

I am so so so so exhausted. I’m exhausted when I go to sleep, I’m exhausted when I wake up. Even on the weekends when I sleep in, I am exhausted. I’ve never in my life been so tired and weary. And the problem is that I have a never-ending list of things to do, but the exhaustion makes it nearly impossible.

So I was talking to my parents, thinking that maybe there is a medical reason for feeling so exhausted. My dad asked, “How many hours a night are you sleeping?”

“I don’t know…six, six and a half, I guess.”

“That’s not enough!” both my mom and dad said.

And after some finger-pointing back and forth about our respective lifestyle choices that cause our respective fatigue, it really does come down to choices. I watch a TV show, I read a book, I grade one more paper.

Then yesterday, I read this quote on Twitter:

“We are spinning our own fates, good or evil, and never to be undone. Every smallest stroke of virtue or of vice leaves its never so little scar.”

How true. So very true. I’m not wild about the idea of going to bed at 9 PM, but it might be a habit that I need to try and develop.

Starting next week.
