It’s 5:00 AM this Saturday morning and while most folks are still sleeping here I am sitting in my kitchen waiting for the world to awaken. This is my time to experience the silence of the world in my little corner of the globe to do some reading, some writing and once I get over this summer cold, a my time to exercise.
It seems that I cannot remember a time where I didn’t get up before the rest of the world and I have learned to use this time in positive ways. It is the time of day to pay bills and balance finances and a time to play with budgets. It is a time to learn new things like the current software program I am working with Adobe Elements. I have a free Lynda.com account and utilize these learning modules to expand my knowledge of many of the things I do on my computer and phone.
As I sit quietly here with a fresh cup of coffee in hand I ponder the realization that I am the Morning Person. I am am the one who finds the time each day to plan things and find solutions to problems before the day even starts. My energy level is at it’s height at this time of the day and I find it to almost be a pleasure to relax and enjoy this peace while allowing my mind to expand.
It will still be hours before the sun rises in the sky and I hear the chatter of birds awakening to search for their morning meal. Although today is not a work day and I have every reason in the world to continue sleeping I still find myself awake and feeling alive and ready to take on the days tasks at hand. I have never been one of those who waits on an alarm clock to shake me out of a deep sleep and send me crazily into rushing through preparing for a work day. I like to do these things slowly and comfortably.
I am the one who is falling asleep at 8:00 at night and just as well as my depleting levels of energy are falling from the busy day behind me. I will sleep for eight hours and arise once again each day to the peace of the early morning. I am the Morning Person.
