The Real Truth About Falling

I loathe going to sleep. 

There has never been an instance where I wanted to go to sleep voluntarily. I might want to go to bed, but never to sleep. 

So why do we go to sleep?
To dream? To function the next day? To survive? To adhere to a schedule? 

My perfect night is one where I fall asleep because my body needs to. Not my mind. It should never be a choice.

Falling is the best feeling in the world. 

Falling in love.
Falling head over heels.
Falling for someone or something. 

It's not about the loss of control, it's about allowing yourself to be vulnerable. To feel deeply without remorse. I'm not saying the outcome will always be perfect, pretty, or even good, but the process of falling, that's the part that leaves you speechless and dazed. 

Falling is a feeling that's hard to describe. Whether you acknowledge it or not, it's happening, and there's nothing you can do to stop it. It's an experience unlike any other. Once you start falling, in love or to sleep, you don't have any control over it. Any logic, knowledge, smarts are shut off, and before you know it, you're in. You've fallen in. 

Let yourself fall. 

That's the most magical part of it all. If you try to hard to control, pin down, and analyze every little thing, you're stripping away the chance for yourself and others to experience that indescribable experience. The only way for others to engage and connect with you, your brand, your experience, your business, your passion is if you let them fall in. Just as you did.
