Wake up to the sound of your alarm calling, and know you can peacefully turn it off and go back to sleep.
Sleep with the window open and the curtains wide. Today you are going to be woken by the natural rays of sunlight whispering promises of peace.
Let the first thing you do be to stretch. Allow your muscle to elongate and your breath to deepen. It’s only fair after a well rested night.
Debate whether you want to get up and get coffee, we both know harsh desition making this early in the morning may disturb the peace, but at the same time, your brain and blood desire it’s elixir first thing in the mornings.
Decided against it. Denying yourself immediate release just makes the pleasure of the first sip that much more greater.
Instead, you lay in bed with your eyes open and listen to the world lay still, or move, at this moment you are so synchronised with the world that you no longer know who is moving and who is still.
Allow yourself to cuddle with your pets. After all, having two cats is as demanding as your beauty ritual before a night out.
Smile at yourself and for no reason. Mornings like this are nothing without a smile. In fact make this your daily morning routine, before you get up, smile at life. After all, there is no reason not to.
Put on your socks and make your way to the bathroom. Your beauty regimen requires you to drink one gallon of water each night before bed and to let out a gallon of toxin when you wake up.
Make your way to the washroom and allow yourself to wash off last night’s nightmares and brush into yourself the taste of beginning. The taste of new. Because no day starts with bad breath.
Allow your hair to remain messy, this morning is all about you.
Make yourself some coffee and take your first sips staring out the window and enjoy the movement. Now you’ve realised it’s the world moving, not you. The loss of perfect synchronisation may have left you yearning, but it’s okay, you enjoy the world like a memory sealed in a photograph – Always from the outside.
Now that your brain is alert, you are aware of this two beautiful balls of fur following you around and charming you into feeding them. This is exactly what you. Because why should you deny them the surge of energy you are feeling right now.
Now, pick up your book, bury yourself in it and disappear into a new world.
This world has entertained you enough.
It’s time to see what others can do.
