I think about what i didn't finsh that day, things i have to do tomorrow, and of course the ones i love. I can never go to sleep at night because I begin to think about how blessed I really am in life and become overjoyed with excitement. I'm young, healthy, alive! I'm in school andd I have a loving family. What maore could a girl want? What does everyone else think about before they rest their eyes?

im affraid whether what i do before going to sleep counts! i have a habit from childhood to draw cars that oneday few of those im gonna make myself. i do it befor going to sleep. its like oneday i just draw the shape nothing else and another day i start from wheel rims and it takes around 6-7 days to complete one particular model. and i dont do it almost everyday. but currently i am tryn to figure out a way to hit the jackpot like youtube or milliondollarhomepage! though i cant really keep up thinking a long time...i fall in sleep within few moments after im in my bed.

I tend to think about things that I've done and said that day. I go over what I said to people and worry sometimes that I said too much or said the wrong thing. *laugh* I know that i overanalyze, though, and worry too much, and I am trying to cut down on the worrying. But I also think about positive things. And I'm always dreaming (like daydreaming) about love.. that's what I usually do at night when I'm trying to fall asleep, since there is nothing in life that I want more than to find true love. It makes me feel better if I can at least daydream about it, since I haven't yet found it in reality! ^_^

I believe in self-talk so when I am lying in bed preparing to fall asleep I am going through positive affirmations about my life and business. This sets my sub-conscious to work sifting through my brain giving me new ideas, all while I sleep.

I usualy watch amovie before i sleep or leasen to some music so i dont know when i fall a sleep. Usualy when i watch a movie i don't think about enything when i leasen music i think about all there is to think about. Most of the time i think about the next day and what to do or i thin a better way to make money and improve my life.

well, i think about everything that happened in that particular day and reflect on it... hahaha i know it's weird but i like doing that. i try to see if ever i did something wrong, so i could correct it someday. or maybe i'd have a good laugh about something funny that happened... it depends on the events that happened on that particular day...=) it's really fun thinking about them and looking back coz they can never happen again.

I always take time to think of what my blessings are. And my list of activities for the next day. I know, kind of a mixed set of emotions, but it seems to hit me just as I turn out the light and that's what I do.

My family is always the last thought in my head!!! I pray to the Lord above to continue to keep my family and friends safe as well as myself. As well as what i have to do the next day and if i have anything important scheduled!

I have to say good night and i love you with who ever is in the house....i could say good night i love you to my husband and then he could ask me a question or i could have forgotten to tell him something...but as soon as we are done ....i still have to say good night and i love you....he gets annoyed sometimes but i cant help it...i figure what if one of us doesnt wake up in the morning for some CRAZY reason i want the last thing that i say to the man i love be a good thing not something random about work or the weekend or etc. this all started when i was younger...im not sure why but i used to do the same thing with my best friend when we would stay the night at eachothers house...we would laugh about it cuz i would say good night i love you about 20 times b4 i really fell asleep. i have her doing the same thing now.... and yes i do this with everyone.... as far as thinking about stuff b4 i sleep....normally about stuff i did during the day or stuff i need to that week or weekend.......

Yes, my husband and I always give 3 kisses and say good night every night. For the same reason as you. One of us might not wake up in the morning and it is comforting to know the last thing we said to each other. The same as when he leaves to go to work or go golfing.

I think you have a marvolous outlook, and I commend you. I am going though some very bad trials right now, so I tend to pray a lot about it at night. But I am still thankful for all my blessings.

I think about how blessed I am that I made it through the day safely and I pray that I wake up to a brand new day. Sometimes during our busy lives we forget to count our blessings. W efocus too much on what we don't have or could've had. We never appreciate what we have until we see people who do not have the blessing bestown upon us.

I generally read about 1-3 hours everyday before I got to bed, so I think about the story, what's going to happpen next, etc.

Wow, that's great. So many people today (and especially young people) tend to think too much about what's wrong in life and what things they want that they *don't* have. It's refreshing to hear someone who appreciates all their blessings. My thoughts before falling asleep are much more mundane, like what I'll be doing tomorrow.

All those thoughts used to keep me awake at night - what did I forget to do or not get done, what did I need to take care of the next day, my son, my husband, my job. Finally I started reading a book for a few minutes before going to sleep and I can drift right off thinking about pleasant worlds where I don't have to worry about what will be waiting for me the next morning.

I'm thinking about what was that day, what I talked to whom, what I'll do tomorrow.. and of course.. is there anything bad... All people are different so everyone has other things on mind
