I love to wake up in the mornings. I am so fresh and renewed. Morning is when I am most energized and alert. I didn’t understand when I became an adult why some people want to wake up at 5 in the morning. Now I do. I can have it all. I have an hour or two to myself to do as I please. Well, almost as I please, because if I make too much noise I will wake up my family right now. This morning I finished my meditation, yoga routine, giving thanks, and affirming my dreams and goals. I make it so I am ready for family work and business work when I’m finished with my morning thing. I need me time and I get a good dose of shut the hell up in the morning. The silence of not being needed for a moment is invigorating. And please tell me readers, if my tone is more uplifting in my blogs when I am writing with a clear head.
Seizing the day as the sun rises allows me to be here for myself and my family. With 3 autistic children there is a lot to get together in the morning. I know that its breakfast time and that could mean cooking more than one breakfast. Each child has their preference, and some mornings I can pull off making oatmeal, grits, and French toast. Most of the time I prepare one meal and ask the girls to eat as much as they can, even though they may not like it. I pick clothes out for my girls and put them on their bed in the morning. They get the rest done. When everyone is ready, then our family can engage in more productive activities. Today we hit the trail early and the girls and I walked for at least 2 miles. It was so peaceful.
I am into the fresh start that the morning brings, then I am dirt tired by 10pm. This is surely one way for me to keep myself strong and ready for me and my family. I am the caretaker for everyone in my family; all five of us. So give me my mornings or give me stress.
