The morning sun pierces through the curtains and strikes your eye. You startle wondering what time it is. Were you late for work? Ah, remembering the sun now brightens your bedroom earlier in the morning you calm down to know you actually woke up early. What a pleasant surprise.

Do you give yourself the extra thirty minutes to sleep or get out of bed? You decide to get up and do those routines you’ve always thought about but never had. You remember that phrase, “It’s not what you know, its consistency to implement that matters.”

With the birds chirping, you pull out a beautifully designed journal covered stating, Seize the day! You smile while thinking this is what happens when you wake up early, peaceful and not in a rush.

As you take a deep breathe, you start journaling about your top priorities personally and professionally. You start reconnecting with why you love your career. Suddenly the anger from the past week dissolves.

As you leave for work, you reflect how peaceful your morning was and vow to start waking up a little earlier. You walk into work smiling and engaging in conversation with colleagues. They notice you have a spring to your step.

Later in the day, you recognize everything you didn’t do this morning. Check your phone, watch the news, read your social media feed. The morning was all yours. This was the best investment of time you’ve had in years.

Choose to spend each moment wisely. Time is a precious resource.

Wishing you an abundant, joyful and prosperous day!
