What do some of your mornings consist of? Exercise? Sleeping in? Whatever you do, or are, in the mornings, remember this; it is the spark of your day. Sitting at my desk and writing this, I’m looking out my window as the sun rises in the east to set an ambient glow across the frost freckled grass. I’ve just finished my daily meditation and my first cup of coffee. I’m tinged with a healthy stress of the work I have to do today, but I begin, the stress will pass. I love mornings. They are solemn and quaint until either my bunky stirs, or the yard opens. I enjoy the solace. It is times like these that my creative thinking jingles to life and I can typically paint visual images in my mind. It is the light of my day and I have to fight against myself most every morning to enjoy it.
Oh yes. My body hates mornings. After breakfast, I get groggy and lazy. It is a battle I endure daily with the help of about two cups of coffee, but sometimes, to no avail. I’ll crawl back into the cozy sheets and lie awake, knowing that if I fall back asleep, I’ll ruin my morning; the rare time of silence. Yet, somedays I just don’t care and I sleep anyways, setting a mood for the remainder of sunlight where I get nothing done, and feel worthless. Why do I do this? I love mornings and I love working, but I’m naturally lazy. I just want things to fall into my lap with little to no strenuosness. I am a conundrum!
What about your mornings? What do you all do to stay motivated and jovial? Give me some feedback on my jpay account and maybe we can help each other out!
Go see something live!
