Oh how I love mornings... I love to get up with the sun. Yet, somehow lately I’ve started to sleep later and later… some days not waking until 8:30am. It makes me feel sad, because I love being up early in the morning and watching the sunrise, listening to the birds sing… being a part of the hustle and bustle as the day begins to start.
I'm not really sure what happened… why I stopped getting up at six in the morning. I guess I started to feel a little bit sad, maybe a little bit overwhelmed, maybe a little bit under the weather. I would roll over and say ok, give me a few more minutes, because I wasn't sleeping well at night.
I was talking to my life coach one day and I was sharing how my morning ritual was moving into the afternoon because I couldn't quite get going in the morning. She suggested that I start getting up 15 minutes earlier each day, for the next few days. Then move it 15 minutes earlier the next few days, until I eventually was getting up at 6:15am, which was the time I liked to get up.
Well, as soon as I stated that I wanted to get moving earlier, the universe said “ok, we’ll take care of that”. I was heading out of town to a dog show for the next five days, which required me to get up each day by 6 AM in order to get the dogs ready for the show. After 5 days of rising at 6:00am, I was back in the swing of things again!
Today was my first day home... I had just completed 5 full days of walking (20,000 plus steps each day) and having a full day of moving and running. Today, I got up at 6:15 and thanked the Angels for the amazing weekend and for helping me to reset my body to waking up early so that I can feel my heart and soul before my day starts.
Sometimes you just have to have the thought... say it out loud, and then watch it manifest itself!
