Sleeping Beauty (NaBloPoMo Day 6)

If you could be given the option to never sleep and also never be tired, would you take it if it meant you’d also never dream again?

Maybe some people want more time in their day. Perhaps the option to never sleep again would be amazing for some. 


I freaking love sleep. Love it. I would never give it up. Not because of dreaming, although I love my dreams at night, but because it is just such a necessary function. Yeah, I’m a mom so sleep is somewhat limited and often overrated but when I get it? Oh it is so, so sweet. I feel refreshed. Energized. My dreams are just the topping. Most of the time I cannot remember them, but many I do and I usually do not want to wake up from them. 

When you get sick what do you do? Sleep! It is so important.

Look, I’m busy. I’m a working mom. Yes, I wish I had more hours in a day. Yes, I wish I could deal with a sick kid overnight without being tired the next day. Yes, I wish I could’ve gone through college without needing to sleep… oh wait… that is exactly what I did. But when I am able to sleep. I don’t take it for granted. I love it. I need it. I’ll make whatever time I can for it.

What about you? Would you give up sleep?
