I’m absolutely beside myself that – *shock* *awe* – I’ve sort of become a morning person! Wait, what? If you told this to my parents (which – they may or may not read this anyway [Hi! *waves*] …I’m a dork) they would be shocked.
From elementary school through high school…getting me up and out the door…was…a challenge – to say the least. School – though, I was a great student and had plenty friends and activities that I loved – was not the place I wanted to go everyday. I don’t know where I did want to go…I think I just wanted to stay in my bed. Regardless, my parents pulled out every ploy of trying to get me out of bed – the echoes of “Good morning, sunshine! – Riiiiiiiise and shine!!” – my dad’s morning greeting (purposefully and jokingly sarcastic and overly cheery) still rings in my head. Now, it is more of a funny memory – at the time, I was like “Ahhh, nooooo!”
So how is it…that here I am – wiiiide awake and raring to go, on a day where I truly don’t have any places that I have to be? Maybe it’s like when you have to wake up at 4 a.m. for a flight, and somehow – your excitement obliterates the fact that your alarm jarred you out of a peaceful sleep. We’ll see how this goes once work and school starts up…
….but honestly, I like this!
Coffee certainly helps.
Maybe this was the missing link all those years?
LARA certainly helps out, too – especially in Peanut Butter Cookie form.
I don’t know what’s different – or if I’ll go back to cursing my alarm, and hitting the snooze more times than is advisable when I have places to be…..but for now – I really like this whole “morning person” thing…. I hope it sticks.
- What about you? Are you a morning person?
