Getting Up At 5 A.M. Changed My Life
I hear the familiar sounds of my drip coffee being brewed at 5:05 a.m. and though I would give away my first McQueen scarf for 10 more minutes of sleep, the aromatic scent of Starbucks light roast coffee floats me out of bed. Which is much more like a shuffle, shuffle, thump… shuffle sip situation. Getting up this early in the morning used to be impossible to me. To even think about. I am such a night person that I was never fully awake until 11:00 P.M.. I used to sleep in until 3:00 P.M.. How the world changes in the early morning.
I sip (chug) my black coffee. Slip into my workout gear and trek down to the 2nd floor gym. Thank god I don’t have far to go otherwise I’d make a very convincing excuse each and everyday pardoning my absence. I’m quite creative when I’m lazy.
But there is one thing I’ve noticed…this creative beast that emerges and barfs ideas into my head. It’s the strangest things. Obstacles so overwhelming the evening prior, seem effortless and obvious. My closet becomes an open book of creative style choices all written out in a language I understand. Suits are the first chapter… Then shirts, sport coats, shoes, accessories and on it goes. Obviously there is no conclusion.
The short of the long of it. Wake up early and get creative. You may just find yourself in my shoes… Or these crazy pants! Who knows. Anything can happen before the sun cones up.
