A Most Contented Sleep

You whiled away all your time, now you're feeling rushed. All those minutes wasted in the lead up to something important, you can never get them back. You know that you should not have spent all those hours on something that could have waited. Now you have nothing for all that time.

But you could not resist the sense of accomplishment that came with the ticking by of those minutes. Each one of them brought you the will to continue, because at the end, there was something to show, something more than what you would have had if you'd been doing what you ought. Although you swore that you would not spend so long doing it, you blinked and the hours had passed, night had fallen, and you had not begun what you had meant to.

It does not matter, the stress can be dealt with tomorrow, because today, something more important was learnt; a lesson about yourself. Today, you learnt that you dislike doing things unless you gain a sense of accomplishment by the end of it, and something to show for all the time you felt you wasted. And so, with that in mind, it shall be easy for you to fall into a deep and contented sleep. Tonight, you feel like you earned it.

Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted
John Lennon
