If you feel you really need that much sleep (ie. you will fall asleep standing up if you don’t get it.) you probably have a medical issue that you could speak to your doctor about.
That being said, I love sleep. If left to my own devices I could easily and unaplologetically sleep for ten hours straight. I love everything about sleep. laying down…pillows…being unconcious…dreaming…not being at work yet…It’s all an awsome experience that I’m thankful for every night.
I know people who don’t sleep, God love em, they doze off in front of the TV and wake up seven times in one night. They don’t know what they’re missing. I’m convinced that REM in the closest we mortals can get to heaven in this lifetime. That being said, there are things in my life that tend to cut in to my favorite hobby. (family, work, obligations, etc.) So, just like any responsible person does when real life rears its head, I get up and get on with the day. I may not like it at first, but it’s what you have to do if you want to have a fullfilling life that pleases God.
I think that if you wanted to be a sister or a wife with exactly nine children and you don’t have some debilitating physical condition, you will find reasons to wake up and get on with your day as well. You probably don’t really need sleep as much as you enjoy it and getting on without it is a discipline just like living on a protein shake diet or avoiding drugs.
