Getting Tired is Good.

          I remember the past 3 months of holidays. I used to wake up late, watch TV for hours, read for more hours, write about many things, eat and then if possible sleep at 3 am. After my tenth standard board exams, this was the most relaxing summer vacation. The way I rested this time I thought I've taken my lifetime's rest. But it doesn't work that way. Now as I've begun college, I'm so busy. I get up at 7 am, read newspaper, exercise, revise notes then go to college. And there's no fixed time when I'll return home. Because of the recent assignments, all of us stay back and work on them. And actually I have fun with the 'post-college-staying-in-college' thing. I always used to rush home when the bell rang but it's not like that anymore. In fact, I'm bored to go home because I really enjoy the company of my friends and classmates. But when I reach home, the wave of tiredness hits. It's not like I'm not tired at college. I definitely am, but it just somehow gets overlooked. And when I'm home in my protective shell, it all resurfaces and I'm like, I could sleep standing up!

          This kind of tiredness gives me a feeling that I'm working. It gives me a feeling that I'm not just doing nonsensical work. It feels like something I've earned. And it's good. Even though, I'm exhausted, that feeling is good. It's like a proof that I have worked hard enough. And that fact gives me happiness.

          Have you experienced this? At times, it totally sucks to be that tired and still finish all the chores. But then you lie on your bed. You fall asleep in the next few seconds. And that's priceless. Instead of tossing and turning in bed, you sleep in a matter of seconds. That's another reward which hard work gives us.

          I just enjoy working in a team which I never thought was possible. I enjoy doing extra curricular work which I thought wasn't my area. I get peace in getting tired which I thought was irrational. All those things which seemed impossible are the ones which I'm doing and enjoying as well. And I think that counts for something.


  1. I completely agree and know the feeling all too well! Writing my Masters Thesis this year sure is exhausting, but it is the best feeling when I can finally go home and relax and feel just how tired I am, and falling asleep right away makes me feel that I have really taken advantage of the day :)

  2. And then you have a baby and realize that being tired is the worst thing ever. ;-)

  3. That's a great way to look at being tired, as a reward for working hard. As long as you listen to your body and give it the rest it needs hard work is good for you. Thanks for sharing.

  4. But I need some sleep!!!! No time for that when you're working on your hustle, though! Thanks for sharing!

  5. I totally agree with you! I love the feeling of being good-tired that comes when you worked hard or put in a good workout or spent a lot of time outside.

  6. It's a GOOD kind of tired, right?!? I have to admit, I get overwhelmed sooo easily and do need some just 'me time" or I fall apart. But being GOODLY tired and falling asleep so fast is a fantastic feeling. XD
