Not a lot of complex thoughts today, but an interesting truth I’ve realized…
Some notes from Early to Rise:
“You want more, and the only time you are going to get it is at 5am.”
Ok. I’ll give. He’s right. I don’t have more time. I can’t make more time. And unless The Doctor shows up in this:
I’m probably not tearing through the fabric of all time and space. ***sits waiting for David Tennant or Matt Smith, either one will do*** Nope. Gotta get up earlier if I want more time in my day. (PS–If you haven’t seen Doctor Who, you like sci-fi & British TV, then you need to find Doctor Who on Netflix–you are welcome.)
You need to equip yourself for success, and house slippers are part of your arsenal.
Yes, sir, you are correct. Slippers required. I have a variety. I’m all about “being dressed to your shoes” when it’s time to go out and about, but I LOVE some comfy slippers.
I think I have come to the conclusion that if I want to take advantage of getting up early by actually doing something in this time before others get up that I’m going to have to get up before 5:30 am. Realizing that your “new early” isn’t early enough really isn’t the best feeling.
SHUT UP! says the voice in my head. Are you kidding?? You don’t want to get up early to begin with! Seriously? You haven’t even been getting up at 5:30 each morning. I have been AWAKE at 5:30 for the past week. Proof:
The problem is that the mornings that I got up at 5:30 (go me!) I felt like I actually needed more time. If the whole idea is to get up early enough to actually be doing something productive, then 5:30 isn’t going to cut it. So, I’m thinking that I’m getting up even earlier next week. Or at least setting the alarm earlier. Gracious. Monday morning is going to be interesting. I think it will be a fuzzy black slipper day.
