Last day of the work week for me (or school week for those who may still be in a school like place). I’ve been getting to bed early the past few weeks, and getting up early as well. There’s a kind of peace in the early morning hours. You can hear things clearly, even the quietest of sounds.
The bonus is that the sun starts to rise at about 6:00 to 6:30 in the morning now.
For me, sleeping in means getting up at 7:00 in the morning. It’s been that way for several years, and I can get up so easily now. When I used to work in radio, I dreaded getting up at 4:00 just to make it to work by 5:00 to start the morning news anchor run. Now, it’s different.
I once knew that if you get up early it’s because you’re in a good place, you like where you work and you enjoy your surroundings. I don’t have an answer for that now. Maybe it’s because I wish to spend every free waking hour in quiet and peaceful surroundings, which my apartment has become.
At some point, I’ll get better. I don’t know when, but I’ll keep plugging away and looking at my options. For now, I’ll enjoy those times when things are peaceful and quiet.
