In truth there is no benefit, no upside, to sleeping badly. There is no way I can romanticise it in good faith. And despite my tendency to try and do just this, I am learning to make peace with the truth. Simply put: some facts of life, some moments and people in it, are just a bit rubbish. And that’s OK. … [Read more...] about The best ideas do not come at 3am
