I Woke Up Like This

I have a confession...

I'm not a morning person.

When I was younger, I would wake up and grumble my way through a bowl of cereal without acknowledging anyone in the room. Fast forward to present day and I’m still that person. There’s just something about the weekday alarm clock that gets under my skin. A Nespresso, hot shower and a morning smoothie help me fake authentic morning person-ness. If I’m struggling, especially on an important day, I blast obnoxious music to put a little pep in my step. On the other hand, when my internal clock wakes me during the weekend, usually around 8:00 a.m., I feel great. 

I fully acknowledge that I need to be a better morning person. When you think about it, the morning is a beautiful thing. It’s a fresh start, allowing you to do better than the day before. Isn't the morning after a terrible day a relief?

As temperatures warm up, I’m reminded why I love hazy southern mornings. It’s warm but the oppressive heat and humidity hasn't set in. Summer walks in my local park or early visits to the Peachtree Road Farmer’s Market for fresh coffee and almond croissants are the best ways to start the day. Early a.m. indulgences make the world a happier place.  

This spring and summer, I plan on improving my morning funk. I may not get it right every day, but I’m going to try. One day, I’ll have kids (aka – human alarm clocks) that will undoubtedly wake me anytime they please. Before that day comes, I should embrace being a happier, more content person every day of the week - even before the sun comes up. 

Sweet dreams and sweeter mornings!
