Sure I could be super productive and have all the laundry for the day done, the house cleaned and life in order but there are catches to that - the washer and drier are just outside Hobbit's door so I would scare the bejeezus out of her if I were to start them up now, same for the vacuum so all I can do is drink my coffee or read my forums and blogs. That is my current mood and position on this situation - and I'm going to change it, right now.
I get to spend almost two whole hours alone with my husband in the morning - even the majority of the world is asleep so it's peaceful. At night, I get spend it enjoying my entire family and then another few hours of just the two of us before we turn in for the night but the morning hours are different. They are veiled in a slower, dreamier state which is a far cry different than the sleepy evening state because nothing has tainted the day yet. No one has gotten in trouble. No messes have been made. No challenges have crept up. Life is perfect during those wee hours, even the sun is still asleep but all is right in my world.

Yes, I'm not a morning person but learning to find the little blessings in the day is what needs to be done. Finding the pearls of life through all the gritty, grimy irritating things is what makes all the difference. As the saying goes, "If you always do what you've always done, then you'll always get you always got"... I have always hated mornings and in turn, mornings have always been horrible - so now, I'm going to embrace them and make them the time to get centered and focused for the day, keeping them calm and easy so that the rest of my day will hopefully follow suit.
To put it simply, I'm choosing to make it the best part of the day so that if I decide it to be so, the reality will be that it honestly is... I influence more than just me so why not influence everything in a more positive direction.
