I know now why when I go to bed early, I can’t sleep: too much on my mind.
I’m not always talked out for the day. I have horse experiences to share, thoughts on those experiences, ideas to get opinions about, things that happened in my day that are either something I can share with my husband or not, because some things in my day require another horseman to *get*. And they were unique or memorable or educational.
Sometimes things happen in my day that require an outside source so that I am sure I reacted appropriately; I will go to someone who I know has had that experience before or someone whom I respect that is older and wiser. I don’t have the luxury of an office job- 8-5. I don’t have the luxury of the internet all day. Nor is it easy for me to talk on the phone. So unless I get home early- well then I am not typically talked out until midnight.
When I’m done getting my thoughts out for the day, I can rest. And be peaceful.
