hello everyone and happy saturday!
why i love early mornings
you wake up to a still house, and creep downstairs turning on lights. going slowly and softly so you do not wake anyone up. you look out the window and even though it is still dark out, you can see the promises of a new day sneak across the sky. a smile comes to your lip as you smell the coffee beans and a sense of calm floods over you as you listen to the dripping of the incredible warm drink.
you take a deep breathe and you have no desire to see what other people are doing or show them how you spend your day, so you avoid your phone. you curl up with a blanket and your hands are cradling a steamy mug. as you look outside you can feel the peaceful breeze and the comforting sound of birds chirping take over your mind’s thoughts. you sit there just embracing the quiet. you watch the sun chase away the darkness as you carefully sip your coffee. you grab your favorite book and you travel to another time and place. you have leave this world for a little bit. once you return you remember you have responsibilities, although today is quite light. you reach for your trusty planner and start planning your day.
as you hear the rustling of sleepy people waking up, you dash upstairs. you turn on your favorite music ( probably something from broadway for me). you jam out as you start getting ready for your day. you take your time, there is no rush. you can do your hair and makeup for as long as you want to. as you pick out your favorite outfit you can smell breakfast being made.
as you walk downstairs your mom asks why you wake up so early. you respond with a quick shrug, but you smile to yourself. you wake up that early because there is no rush, no expectations, and no pressure. you can spend quiet and peaceful moments with yourself with no interruptions. you wake up that morning because nothing can stop the happiness you feel as you sip your coffee to the songs of birds. you love waking up early because it is your time with yourself, which is completely and utterly priceless.
