Seeing this picture reminds me of warmer days! I took this picture last spring after waking up and watching the sun rise above the mountain in front of our house. It was so pretty that I vowed to continue waking up early, even during summer vacation.
I love to wake up early. I love the silence. I love to greet the day before the sun comes up. I love to exercise in the morning. I love the feeling of productivity when I get an early start to the day. I love looking over my goals in the quietude of the morning. Is "quietude" a word?
My mornings right now certainly look a lot different than this, covered in snow and ice. But I still enjoy mornings, especially after the Christmas holiday when school starts back up and we get on a schedule again. There is something that rings true to that old saying,
"Early to bed, early to rise,
Makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise."
I am trying to improve a little however, after reading about how sleeping longer after pushing the snooze button actually makes you feel worse, instead of better. So, I am up the first time now. ;)
Life is good.
But it's even better in the early morning.
