Mornings are my favourite part of the day.
It is a time of quiet before the hustle and bustle of life begins. It is a time of reflection. A time of solitude.
Morning is the time I do my best thinking. My mind is well rested and filled with ideas and thoughts; it is not yet slowed by the fatigue that engulfs me as the day ends. Morning is the best time for me to write, to plan my lessons, to think about my goals. The beginning of the day is the best time for me to spend in reflection: about my life, who I am, and where I need to me.
I am a morning person. I get up and open the curtains to greet the day. During the winter, I see darkness and am blessed to observe the colours of the sunrise as I eat breakfast. During the summer, I greet the dawn with pleasure and listen for the sound of the singing birds.
The morning has come to be my “me” time. As the rest of my household sleeps, I spend time alone in quiet and reflection.
Are you a morning person?
