21 in 30
Welcome to the 30 in 30 challenge! Each day this month I'll be posting a response to a prompt. You can find all the questions here. I stole the questions from here.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be and what would you do with it first?
This might be a lame response and it definitely shows the season of my life right now, but I wish that I was able to operate with less sleep. I need 7-8 good hours to function at 100%. I can make it on 5-6 every now and again, but I need to average 7-8 in order to really bring my 'A' game. If I didn't need as much sleep I'd be able to get a lot more accomplished. I could clean at midnight, exercise at 5am, cook freezer meals, and still not miss a waking moment with my boys.
Needing sleep helps me keep my priorities in check. I make time to exercise because it's important. I make time to pump and make baby food purees for Wesley because it's important. I make time to snuggle with my husband on the couch because it's important. I do not always make time to clean our bathroom and my hair is almost always still damp when I get to work because drying it is not a priority. If I didn't need sleep I don't think I would prioritize. I guess God knew what God was doing creating the human need for sleep. ;-)
