I'm an early riser. My alarm goes off at 5am, and I'm usually up a little before it anyhow. This morning I'm doing some writing before sunrise, which is at 6:30. Then I'll quickly get dressed to go running, and do a 45 minute or so workout, before I come back, shower, and get on my way to work.
That's a lot of stuff to do before my workday begins.
But I love it. I love that my job is the third big thing I'll do today. Don't get me wrong - I love what I do. But I love that it's not all that I do.
Anyhow, I love being up now, when the day is new, filled with promise. I feel wealthy with energy, time, options, passion. I love the contrast between how it's dark and quiet outside, but inside my brain is seething, hissing, and popping like a hot pan ready to cook up new things.
I love that contrast, and those feelings.
