But what motivated me to wanting to post today is the fact that I'm actually up for it.
The mere fact that I had a real good night sleep not just for a night but for two nights made a HUGE impact-full change in my life!
Sounds silly is it?
Here's the story..
A couple of weekends ago, we celebrated my daughter's birthday and it was no ordinary birthday at home or a chosen venue for cake cutting but a weekend getaway with the entire family including my very loyal, God sent NANNY!!!
We headed down to Melaka's A'famosa Resort for 3 days and 2 nights.
We packed everything and everyone possible to spend the weekend with me and my kids in order to have a surprised birthday party for my girl who turned 7 and at the same time to enjoy the activities available at the resort.
During the day we had quite the activities and most certainly it was after feasting a great breakfast buffet in the Golfer's Terrace. All the busy ness in the day made sleeping at night an event to look forward to.
Finally it was time to check out and head back home.
Ok you're wondering, so what's with the sleep, right?
I only noticed the difference in me a week after getting home from our weekend and realized that I was not snapping at my kids for their many tantrums and complains and dissatisfactions or disappointments in a day, rather I spoke civilly to them and handled the matter without literally wanting to pull my hair out of my head! I was not getting stressed up with them.
I was utterly surprised at the way I behaved and sat to analyze why, and it was only this one obvious reason.. I had uninterrupted sleep for 2 night because our dearest nanny took care of my youngest who is 1+ for those 2 nights instead of him sleeping with me. The fact that I got the chance to sleep without having to wake up to his cry and feeds gave me the opportunity to catch up on what my BRAIN was crying for all theezzzzeee MONTHS!!!
Solid 7 hours of uninterrupted sleep made a miraculous change in me! And I was blessed to have it for 2 nights. What a BONUS!
I used to ask myself what was happening to me? After loosing my temper, I would sit with so much regret and then I would snap again.. I thought it was some crappy HORMONAL issue going on but NO!!! ALL I needed was a GOOD NIGHT's SLEEP!!!
The next time I see signs of me loosing my mental state.. I'm going to plan another holiday and with my NANNY with us of course ;-)
