My resistance to tuck in early is directly proportional to my easiness to tuck in until I’m fully sleep satiated. Unless there’s an emergency.
The fear and pain of sometimes having to wake up unnecessarily early because a market designed by slavers said so is something I don’t quite easily get over for a long time. But eventually I forget.
It always feels like I’d lose my mind and the world if I closed my eyes to sleep as early as the market recommends.
It also feels like – and I fear this one – that waking up so early is how people die and let the market win.
Markets can be bullish, yes. But they know nothing about what I know about the pleasures of my sleeping and waking up when I want or need to.
I’m more of friends with sleep that comes late in the night and refuses to leave early until both it and I are on the same page.
I’m neither a bird nor a worm. I’ve all my life resisted mortals who tried this on me. Let birds be birds and worms be worms.
And I’m neither a night person nor a morning person. Such people don’t exist.
The market likes to play many tricks on earthlings. There’s only a moment to retire for sleep and the necessity to not wake up until wakefulness takes over decisively.

Haaa. I so relate to this! I wish for more freedom to not rush to bed trying to get sleep but no sleep then have to snooze the alarm without having rested enough. I believe that is how my toddler son feels when I try to force him to sleep when he want to play since he thinks I am the best playmate but again I need my sleep. Keep writing inspiring to stop procrastinating on my blogging.
