I woke up extra early today.
Waking up too early used to disturb me, but I’ve learned to accept it. The world seems different before sunrise. Most everyone is asleep when it’s still dark. Of course, not everyone’s asleep in the early hours; donut-makers, overnight deliverers, and garbage dumpster picker uppers are all out there making the world go round.
When I wake up really early, I know the creative juices are flowing. The trick to dealing with creativity is figuring out what to do with it. Sometimes there can be too much of a good thing, like too much creativity, but that’s a luxury as far as problems go.
It’s good to have a routine when you find yourself alone in the grey hours. Feed the cat. Make a cup of coffee. Check your horoscope. Write 300 words. Let your girlfriend get her beauty sleep.
My goal for today is to do my best to have energy and a positive outlook on things. I rather enjoy being a reclusive hermit philosopher, but today I’ll work on getting some time in the sun. Like the trees outside my window, I feel like I’m turning a new leaf. Not to be lewd, but I find my tenuous personal growth quite exciting.
A lighthearted approach to life is sometimes a necessity. The search for truth doesn’t have to be a dour and lonely journey. There’s a place for curiosity, openness, and playfulness in life. I’m not sure when I got so serious (probably when things got serious ) but I don’t want to take myself too seriously. The universe is laughing, after all.
I’ve always dreamed of being a writer, and by golly here I am living my dream, all thanks to waking up before dawn. With a strong body, clear mind, light heart, and free spirit, it’s time to go forward and do great things!
Thanks for reading. Let’s make today a better day.
