I wonder why I'm a morning person?!?! My favorite time of day is when I open my eyes and realize I get to start again. Mornings are hopeful. Mornings are quiet. Mornings whisper and encourage me. Being outside in the morning air is like nothing else! It wakes me and brings me such joy.
It doesn't matter the weather...well, except rainy mornings...I love those too, but I'd love to spend those inside watching the rain. The pink sky brightens as it welcomes the sun. The dew on the grass shimmers in the light. I know that so much of this may be cliche, but I can't help it...My favorite part of a morning walk is coming home. Grabbing a steaming cup of coffee, sitting down with my notebook and writing...planning out the day ahead.
I wonder, What does being a morning person say about me? I think it means that I value hope...and quiet time to reflect....beauty and solitude. On morning walks with my dog, Bella, it feels like we are the only ones in the world...like the world belongs to us. I feel lucky and grateful and joy-filled. When I sleep late, I feel a pinch of regret because I missed those early morning moments.
