There was a time when I could get up at 5:00 a.m. everyday without an alarm. Nowadays, I hit the snooze button over and over until I have no other choice but to finally wake up. This usually ends up with me rushing to get ready, without breakfast and without a second to simply stop and enjoy the start of the new day. Days of waking up this way have turned into weeks and now into months and I sure as hell don't want this terrible habit to consume years of my life.
Waking up early, when accompanied with a nice restful sleep is an amazing thing. Rushing sucks. I miss the feeling of getting up and having time to exercise, make breakfast, and do small chores before heading off to work. It makes work feel less burdensome, since I know I've already done something for myself that has nothing to do with my job.
With the end of daylight savings and that extra hour of sleep, I'm hoping to get out of bed earlier, hit the snooze less, and have a better outlook on the day ahead. I want to discover the moment light begins.
Since I started this post with a Rumi quote, I'm going to end it with another: "The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you. Don't go back to sleep." Get up right when you wake up and don't go back to sleep. Start your day. The universe is waiting for you to meet it. Have a good night and an even better morning!
