‘Aargh, is it time already?, he groaned, ‘I don’t want to get up’.
I, who layed wide awake next to him for an hour or so, sighed.
‘And I don’t want to stay in bed anymore.’
I couldn’t see it in the dark, but I suspected that he rolled his eyes, as well as rolled over to the other side one more time.
Finally, half an hour later he found the courage to get himself up.
15 minutes later he was in the car driving to work.
If only I needed that little time to maintain my appearance 😉
But that’s not the only reason that I am a so called “morning Person”.
I am not sure if you are Born or shaped that way.
My parents were Always early birds.
And if it wasn’t their words that encouraged me to make my day more efficient, it was the Sound of the vacuum cleaner or blender in the early morning.
For them it was normal Routine if I would join them cleaning or cooking as soon as the Clock hits 8 AM.
When I started drinking coffee, I woke up on Purpose to join them.
I enjoyed this moment of slowly starting the day with easy Topics.
When I grew older, work required me to wake up early.
And thus, I have hardly ever been able to Sleep in, even at the Weekend.
The first Motivation to get out of bed is coffee.
I don’t necesarily drink a lot of coffee, but in the morning it is essential or I’ll be spending the day with a headache.
It is also the Moment when I get the Chance to have some “me time”, which seems to be a rare occassion once you’re an adult.
After the first few sips of that delicious, black liquid, my brain boots up.
Now I could use this Energy to browse brainless YouTube Video’s, but I might as well save those for the after-lunch dip.
And thus, I spend my Mornings playing Chess, stretching, doodling or thinking About how to put my words in a blog.
Being a morning Person is rare, but many “experts” Claim it’s the key to success.
I can confirm that it is not true, not for me anyway 😉
But it does suit me and in fact, now already I am Looking for tomorrow morning.
So if you ever Need my help for something, I suggest you mail it to me at 6 AM.
That’s when I will be at the kitching table, drinking coffee and activating my brain.
Are you a morning person?
If yes, what do you like to do in the morning?
If no, would you like to become one?
Do you think you are born as a morning person or shaped?
