The nights before morning

The nights before morning are always a mystery. Unfortunately a good day doesn’t always call for a good night. On the other hand, a single good day could be a hint to achieving a good life. Life is a mystery and you never know what a 24/hour day will bring.

Life has the tendency to press our inner spirit. We evolve around people who ultimately demand our attention in obligations, relationships, and ambitions. Do you ever have that feeling of “being something more”? 

Some of us don’t live the 9AM-5PM schedule, so we consider “night” and “day” differently. For me, I am in bed by 10PM and I wake up to start the new day by 6AM. As young as the day starts, my mind has adapted. Every morning my mind wonders into a bajillion thoughts transforming the actual truths in my life to what “could be”.

I think about doing the most bizarre things like randomly moving to Texas, or riding the subway in New York City; taking a trip to Paris, France, or London, the Bahamas! I think about quitting my government job and starting over on a farm with horses, cows, pigs, and chickens. I wonder what driving from the East Coast USA to the West Coast USA has to offer. Only in the young of the day does my mind encourage me to find a new me and forget the real me.

Every morning I conceive this sense of accomplishment that I will experience if I drop what I am currently doing right now to live other endeavors. Yet…the night comes and all of the thoughts I contemplated in the past 10 hours are vague. It’s as if my mind tricked me into thinking I could feasibly achieve these things without facing some sort of hardship.

I know that life is what you make it. I just can’t fathom how random my thoughts are at the crack of dawn. It’s like I am born again each morning finding myself at the other end of the age spectrum by night.

Do you have sporadic thoughts throughout the day?

  1. Yes! I teach school, and I’ve had a great summer so far, but I’m hitting the part where I think too much and have wild fantasies of leaving my entire life behind and live in Thailand or some other grand adventure.

      1. Next time you are traveling to NYC, I highly recommend the ferry. I do Port Imperial to Midtown. The approach during the day is magnificent, and leaving at night with the city lights is magical.

      2. Julie, great recommendation! I’ve been on the Staten Island Ferry one time, when i went to visit a friend. Good times. I’ve never been on Port Imperial though. Do you go to NYC a lot?

  4. Lovely post! I overthink a lot as well. Although crazy thoughts of ‘what if’ keep popping into my mind a million times a day, I try my best to stay grounded and enjoy the present moment. Meditation helps a lot with that. I meditate using the Headspace app, you should definitely try it. ☺️
    And I totally agree, most nights usually have a strange negativity which disappears at the break of dawn. 😁
    I’m sure you’ll achieve all that you dream of doing. All the best! ☺️💛

  5. Hell yeah! I often get these thoughts. Leave my country and live in Paris where everything is new and fresh that I forget my reality and the hardships I would face there. Still my dream though! Anyway, I thought I’m the only one who has these thoughts, thankfully I’m not. Great post 👏

  6. Do you ever have that feeling of “being something more”? feelings and thoughts most of the time
    Like you, I think mostly to go away, to leave everything behind, start fresh in a far point in the world where nobody knows me…and many other things! between the 9-6 job, I can have like thousand thoughts and thousand trips!
    Loved your post, it’s genuine and deep
    Thank you for following my blog as well and hope you’re a reader because this is what matters to me 🙂
