A quiet mind and a tired body are the two requirements for a good night's sleep. If you're not exercising, start, and if your mind isn't quiet, welcome to Buddhism.
Hahahaha; I'm like an annoying Yoda.
Yes, it is lovely. Sad though at times too.
I was joking with an A.A. lady last night and our conversation was "Don't you hate it when you help someone get and stay sober and they get their lives together and end up doing better than you!"
That made me smile.
I love seeing addicts/alkies recover. We've a very young heroin addict (and alcoholic) in our area; she was grimly underweight and I suspected on some kind of prescription drug (like subutex) coming to our local meetings. One of the older ladies took her under her wing.
Last week I saw her laugh for the very first time (rather than the normal zombified demeanour) and she looked even more alive last night.
She tells me she's put a stone on in the past 3 months; but she's still looking very underweight.
I had the pleasure of giving her a three month A.A. chip last night. She's only a few years older than my daughter.
