This morning I woke up way before the sun will come up! I woke up at 4am. Just a few months ago, I was angry/irritated every morning that I couldn’t sleep in, no matter how hard I tried! Over the past week my early wake ups, all of a sudden, turned into, dragging my booty out of my bed every morning a half hour later, a hour later, to late wake ups where, I just didn’t wanna get out of bed. I just wanted to stay warm and toasty,snuggled in bed all day. So, I was waking up feeling like I was hung over. Then stumbling through my morning feeling stressed out and thinking, “OMG I don’t have enough time!” I think I have been actually waking up between 4-5 am and then just forcing myself back to sleep. I didn’t even look at my clock before I grabbed my stuff off my nightstand and got up and headed to the coffee pot. Notice I didn’t say stumbled! I drank my lemon and ginger H20, which I knew was waiting for me, as I had prepared it the night before, while I was waiting for my coffee and lit some incense and sat down and wrote out my Morning Pages.
Voila!!! What came out as I wrote them is that I am thankful for my early mornings! I love being awake while I feel like the whole world is sleeping! and, since I am no longer Night Owl, mornings it is. I would prefer the time to be about 5-5:30 instead of 4 am, but I will take what I can get. I LOVE my daily naps. Even when I slept in I still felt the need to nap!
