Morning People

I love mornings. I love hearing the birds wake up and I love the color of light that comes through the windows. It’s soft and comforting.

But I often have a hard time getting out of bed.

For as much as I love the morning time, I sure don’t get up early enough to enjoy it.

2021 Goal: Get up earlier.

How do people do it? Some rise at even 3 and 4am! I did that for a year while in training and it was never something that didn’t bother me. I always would have chosen to sleep in.

Morning people freak me out a bit.

But not even in a bad way.

Like someday I hope to be the morning freak that runs three miles before coffee at 6am, but it’s going to take a lot of effort and dedication to get there. That’s for another time…..

The other day I woke up at 445 and couldn’t fall asleep so I got out of bed around 530 after continuously trying to fall asleep unsuccessfully. I made some coffee and then went to the couch to drink it while watching TV.

It was actually pretty enjoyable. Alone mom time is not something I get often (or ever!). I think that is definitely something I want to start doing more.

We shall see.

I’m a tired soul
