Did I Set My Alarm Clock?


We’ve all had this feeling. Laying down on our bed and we decide to set our alarm clocks to get up in the morning. Then we turn around to drift off to sleep, but their’s this little voice in the back of your head that says “Did I set my alarm clock for the right time.” Or “did my alarm clock really set?” Now we all know that you did, but you still don’t know for sure. You contemplate not turning over to check it because you already found the comfortable spot on your bed that is going to take you to dream land. But you remembered that the one time that you didn’t check you ended up waking up late and your whole day was thrown off. So you turn around and it turns out that you should’ve trusted a little bit more because it was all set right. Now you can’t get back to that position that was the most comfortable to you.

You know it’s funny how all of life’s funny mishaps make you realize that there is a lesson in everything that we do. Trusting in yourself and the process is one of the hardest things to do. You will constantly be approached with doubt, insecurity, and wonder. You don’t know if you’re doing something right so you alter your plan and it throws you completely off course. But just like in the bed, you have to trust yourself.

Yes there may have been mistakes made in the past but you have grown from them. They have made you more aware and you know that you would never allow yourself to make that same mistake again. I understand however, the thought of “I don’t know.” Will always creep its way into your brain, it can keep us up at night and make us crazy. But you’re in your comfortable spot, you know you’ve done the right thing so try to calm yourself and let the morning come.

Trusting yourself is one of the hardest things to do, but once you’ve mastered this technique there won’t be anyone who can stop you from achieving whatever you want.
