Do I Really Deserve a Nap

I kind of fantasized about staying up late like all those boss babes working on a project and just having the opportunity to talk about it, but it never worked. I would either sleep off or just start having eyeaches.

But then, three weeks ago, I had the opportunity to do that. I had two deliveries for Sunday, but the power was down, so I slept off and hoped to wake up in the middle of the night to work on it and deliver it. Luckily for me, I was able to wake up by 1 AM to get started.

I got to work and finished by past 3 AM, and I wasn’t feeling sleepy, so I thought to pray and just read my bible, which I did; by the time I was done, it was already morning. I slept a bit but stood up to start the new day. Lol. I felt like I had superpowers because I didn’t feel weak.

In the middle of the day, I started having a bad headache, and it wasn’t going away!

Omg! I tried to sleep, but I couldn’t take my mind off the headache. Not gonna lie; I was scared 

The first attempt at being a boss babe, and I failed. Lol. Anyway, I was able to sleep over the night after placing a cold towel on my head and listening to gospel songs to stop getting scared. Thank God for calming me down.

The headache came again the next day, and I just knew I had to sleep again. Two unproductive days because I sacrificed one day of sleep for work. That just showed me how important sleep was to the body, and I know I should not tamper with that again.

Do I still want to be a boss babe? Absolutely! But without the sleep deprivation.

Success should never cost you your health. You are the powerhouse, so work smart, not hard. And next time you feel tired but think you haven’t done a lot, remember you deserve that nap.
