Maybe I Can Be A Morning Person After All

I’ve been going through a period of adjustment lately, and I’m surprised that it hasn’t been more taxing. I thought it would feel really harsh to wake up at 6 am, but it’s not as awful as I feared it might be. Sunday afternoon I wasn’t looking forward to waking up early, but once Monday came it wasn’t too bad. I like what I’m doing at work, which makes it pleasurable to go in. 

I miss seeing my early afternoon Starbucks buddies, but I see most of them when I’m there to tutor, have meetings and/or coffee with friends, etc. Life doesn’t feel terribly different than it did before this transition, which makes me think that being a morning person isn’t so bad. I actually love that I’ve accomplished so much by 9 am. 

I’m not sure what my next step will be. ( Well, I have an idea, but nothing definite yet.) I just know that I’m much more open to the idea of getting to work early most mornings. That frees me up to do some things that I wasn’t willing to do previously. 

Who knew that growing up could be so rewarding and not at all dreadful? 😉

    Love this! I felt the same way when I started setting my alarm for 5am (in order to have time for devotional, run, cool down, and get mostly ready for work before the kids get up). I still struggle with it, especially if went to bed late the night before, but it’s changed my days so much! I love it.

    Hi Kenlie! Sorry I haven’t been on in a while. I’ve had a lot of things going on lately.
    But yes! Being a morning person is awesome! I get up every morning around 5am and get right to my routine. I get to work a little before 7 but feel that I’ve gotten so much done in that time. And what’s nice about it is that I can get off around 3 or 4 in the afternoon and still get some personal time in my day before it’s time to settle down for the evening!
    So happy to hear that you’re adjusting well. 🙂

    It’s always been one of my goals to be a morning person. You 5 am people make me sick! Just kidding, I don’t know how you all do it. 6am is so tough for me!
