Hello everyone and welcome back to a new post on being a night owl and the experiences I’ve had…
Recently I discovered something a little unusual about myself, that I’m a night owl. This may not seem unusual to many of you but to me it was, I didn’t even realise this until I sat down and thought about it. I was always that child that slept ridiculously early throughout my childhood and even into my pre-teen years. My thoughts were that nighttime is for sleeping, there isn’t much use to night sky apart from that.
Boy, was I wrong!! Currently, I’m sitting here on my bed typing out whatever I feel onto my own blank canvas and it’s after 10pm. Again, there’s nothing unusual about that either, many people work on projects and multiple other things during the night. So why have I chosen to dedicate a blog post about it?
Well mainly because I want to share my thoughts about the experiences I’ve had being a night owl. I find so much comfort at night, it’s like there’s an air of solitude surrounding me; although this may be my introverted nature it’s something that I crave. Yet, out of everything freedom in the dominant feeling, I like the whole concept of feeling free, of letting loose my innermost thoughts which most often than not, flood my brain immensely.
Sometimes this results in overthinking and worrying. Yet sometimes it turns into something beautiful, it turns into thoughts about life, death, time, art, literature, my dreams, my passions and what I’d like to change in this world. I always reflect upon the thoughts that I have because it becomes a source of inspiration, almost encouragement to push me a little further towards my dreams.
But most of all, it makes me feel something inside, everyday I think up new thoughts which takes me away from the rigidity of everyday life. I feel happy, I feel like a mountain, impossible to move because of my strength. Like a spark inside me has just ignited, which fuels on creativity and wondrous dreams. I feel determined, confident and ambitious, like I’ve had a spiritual awakening. I feel alive. Happiness flows through my body up to the point where it becomes overwhelming and tears start to form in my eyes.
To all of you reading this, I encourage you to find time for yourself and reflect whether you’re a night owl or not, it works wonders. Just thinking can help bring things back into perspective, especially if you feel a little lost on the way.
Last but not least, a huge shoutout to a close friend to who without, this blog post would not have existed 🙂
